Here's an easy-to-understand, logical guide to the diagnosis and repair of today's complex and sophisticated automotive control systems! In Introduction to On-Board Diagnostics (OBD II) readers will learn how this complex system functions and be provided with valuable reference material for diagnosing and troubleshooting its many components and circuits. This book provides a simple, logical approach to explain the operation of the OBD II system and will teach the reader how to quickly spot problems and identify components that are not functioning correctly. In addition, the interrelationships between the fuel delivery, emission control, ignition, and accessory systems are clearly addressed and explained. CAM data is also included. An interactive Computer Based Training (CBT) CD-ROM is also available as a supplement to this book. This course leads users through ten simulated trouble-code scenarios to reinforce the hands-on components of diagnosis and repair procedures that are taught in the manual.


  • "quick hit" troubleshooting tricks teach readers how to diagnose problems when there is no stored OBDII trouble code, as well as how to handle situations where the trouble code is actually set by a basic mechanical problem rather than a failure of the indicated component
  • information is useful for those who wish to expand their capabilities from more basic, mechanical repairs to complex electronics and drivability diagnosis and repair
  • a substantial portion of the content focuses on logical troubleshooting that can be done without expensive, complicated test equipment and special tools
  • also useful as a preparation manual for the ASE Certification exams
  • contains CAM data

Appendixes Include:

  • Glossary of Automotive Terms & Abbreviations
  • SAE Standardized OBD Acronyms
