To harness the diagnostic functions of OBD, it is crucial to understand how your chosen testing device provides information about the various operating modes outlined in the standard. Information such as fault codes, conditions, freeze frame data, and code deletions are stored across different functional modes. Depending on the function, the testing device may display information in the appropriate mode, necessitating navigation through multiple views to gather comprehensive data. Alternatively, the same information may be consolidated into a single view.

In the realm of diagnostics, fault codes are specified based on how a malfunction affects the data received from the signal, current, or function. Proficiency in this area requires an understanding of circuitry and its functioning. By applying basic electrical engineering skills and system knowledge, you will gain insight into phenomena like how fluctuations in supply voltage can impact grounding through short-circuiting.

Furthermore, you will explore the intricacies of component self-diagnostics, enhancing your diagnostic skills. The course will help you distinguish between continuous and non-continuous monitors, particularly regarding component self-diagnostic tests in the OBD and EOBD systems.

The course also delves into OBD diagnostics’ internal control systems, known as partial tests, which play a role in official inspections related to roadworthiness. However, these systems are equally valuable for mechanics during post-repair inspections. You will gain insights into monitoring systems and the significance of thorough post-repair test drives, encompassing various operating scenarios. The course underscores the importance of properly planning test drives and highlights that simply resetting fault codes and monitoring system results is insufficient for resolving faults.

Upon completion of this course, you will possess comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in EOBD/OBD-II self-diagnostics, equipping you to excel in automotive troubleshooting and diagnostic procedures.
