What is OBD-II?
OBD-II stands for On-Board Diagnostics, II generation. It is a set of documents issued by SAE and ISO, which describe the interchange of digital information between on-board emission-related Electronic Control Units (ECUs) of road vehicles and an OBD-II scan tool. OBD-II also commonly refers to the physical on-board diagnostic system of a vehicle, which consists of an ECU (or multiple ECUs), Malfunction Indicator Light(MIL), Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC), and the wiring that connect the different elements.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a very user-friendly OBD-II reader. I am no mechanic, so I was only able to test it on one car so far (a Ford Crown Vic) but it worked great. It gave me precise error codes, andI was able to turn off the Check Engine light. Not having to go to the shop has paid for the reader itself, but I know I will get a lot more use out of it. Comes with very understandable instructions (which is rare these days...).
I was able to access the on board diagnostic system. Pulled up my pollution control error. The unit was able to remove the service engine light. 2003 Mazda Tribute. All is good now. Was not able to update unit but didn't need to for my repair. Still a nice addition to my toolbox.

Was at auto Zone and friend of mine works there and he borrowed it to check a guys car was so impressed showed his boss so they could buy one.
