Is your vehicle OBD II compliant?

All cars and light trucks built and sold in the United States after January 1, 1996 were required to be OBD II equipped. In general, this means all 1996 model year cars and light trucks are compliant, even if built in late 1995.

All gasoline vehicles manufactured in Europe were required to be OBD II compliant after January 1, 2001. Diesel vehicles were not required to be OBD II compliant until January 1, 2004.

All vehicles manufactured in Australia and New Zealand were required to be OBD II compliant after January 1, 2006. Some vehicles manufactured before this date are OBD II compliant, but this varies greatly between manufacturers and models.

Two factors will show if your vehicle is OBD II compliant:

  1.  There will be an OBD II connector, and
  2.  There will be a note on a sticker or nameplate under the hood stating "OBD II compliant" or "OBD II Certified".

Where is the connector located?

The connector must be located within three feet of the driver's seat and must not require any tools to be revealed. Most are located under the steering column. If your OBD II port is not there, look under the dash and behind ashtrays.

OBD II Protocols

Auto manufacturers had some leeway in the communications protocol they used to transmit parameters or PIDs, which are required by law to be uniform, to scanners. There are currently five different OBD II communications protocols in use: KWP, PWM, VPW, ISO 9141, and CAN.

What Communications Protocol does my vehicle use?

As a rule of thumb, GM cars and light trucks use SAE J1850 VPW (Variable Pulse Width Modulation). Chrysler products and all European and most Asian imports use ISO 9141 circuitry. Fords use SAE J1850 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) communication patterns.

There are some variations among captive imports such as the Cadillac Catera, a German Opel derivative, which uses the European ISO 9141 protocol.

On 1996 and later vehicles, you can tell which protocol is used by examining the OBD II connector:

J1850 VPW - The connector should have locations 2, 4, 5, and 16 populated, but not 10 populated.
ISO 9141-2 - The connector should have locations 4, 5, 7, 15, and 16 populated.
J1850 PWM - The connector should have locations 2, 4, 5, 10, and 16 populated.
CAN Bus - The connector should have locations 4, 5, 6, 14, and 16 populated.
ISO 14230 KWP - The connector should have locations 4, 5, 7, 15, 16 populated.

If your vehicle has this style connector, but does not have these pins populated, you probably have a pre-OBDII vehicle. To add some confusion, even having the connector with the contacts shown above is not a guarantee of OBD II compliance. This style connector has been seen on some pre-1996 vehicles which were not OBD II compliant. Most vehicle manufacturers have switched over to CAN bus protocols since 2006.

J2534 Overview

Legislation has mandated that vehicle manufacturers meet J2534 standards for all emissions related systems on all new vehicles starting with model year 2004. This standard enables independent service repair operators to program or reprogram (reflash) emissions related ECUs on a wide variety of vehicle manufacturers with a single hardware interface. Our ScanXL™ Professional diagnostic software supports all J2534 compliant pass-thru OBD-II interfaces. If you plan to buy or already use a J2534 interface in your service or repair facility to update vehicle software calibrations, our ScanXL™ product will be the perfect addition to your tool set. With no additional hardware costs, ScanXL™ Professional will give you access to dealer-level diagnostic capabilities for thousands less!


Manufacturer Enhanced Diagnostics

If you are the owner of an independent service or repair facility then you know that good tools can mean the difference between being able to find and fix the problem, or having to send the customer elsewhere. With generic only OBD-II scan tools you often cannot service some vehicle systems like ABS, airbag, or other proprietary systems. Using our ScanXL™ diagnostic scan tool, you now have access to dealer-level diagnostic capabilities for not only the powertrain systems, but also ABS, airbag, and other proprietary systems that would otherwise require expensive dealer tools to work with*.


We currently support the following vehicle types:

Ford, Lincoln, Mercury (1996-2009)

GM (1996-2009)

Mazda (1996-2009)

Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth, Jeep, Eagle Coming Soon!

Toyota, Lexus, Scion Coming Soon!

*Requires purchase of an enhanced diagnostics add-on package.

ScanXL™ Features

Vehicle Manager

Using the ScanXL™ Vehicle Manager you can keep track of multiple vehicles and owners simultaneously. All vehicle specific information is stored in the Vehicle Manager. Automatically keeps track of VIN (if available) and date and time of last diagnostic session. When adding new vehicles, supports easy vehicle lookup through the built-in vehicle database.


Virtual Dashboards

With our patent-pending DashXL™ technology you get high quality dashboards on any screen size. Highly configurable realistic looking gauges. Gauges can be moved, resized, and laid out to resemble your own dashboard. Virtual dashboard layouts can be loaded and saved from pre-existing templates or your own custom creations. Gauges can be configured to report the minimum, maximum, and average values of the parameter being monitored. Highly configurable graphs allow simultaneous graphing of up to 8 parameters per graph. Tables can be placed on virtual dashboards and customized to report any parameters you want. Maps can be placed on virtual dashboards and customized to display a full 3D view of any desired parameters. You can set up an unlimited number of gauges, graphs, tables, and maps on your virtual dashboard.


Drag Strip and Dyno

The drag strip displays a countdown and timing light and measures your launch and reaction time. At the end of your run, you get a timeslip with the stats from the run. Measures reaction time, 60' time, 330' time, 0-60 MPH, 1/8 mile ET, 1/8 mile speed, 1000' time, 1/4 mile ET, 1/4 mile speed. If you use aftermarket performance parts, the new digital dyno feature will let you test horsepower and torque to measure their impact on your vehicle's performance-- just try out the dyno and see if those parts were worth the money! Supports both English and Metric units of measurement.


Data Logging

Currently supports over 220 generic OBD-II parameters, including O2 sensors. You can record and playback log files in real time (1ms logging accuracy). You can save and load your log files for offline analysis. Playback speed can be adjusted to play faster or slower than real time. There are no restrictions on how much data you can log, it is only limited by how fast your OBD-II interface cable can send the data and by how much memory you have in your computer. English and Metric (SI) unit measurement systems supported. Customizable log file data export to .CSV file for easy viewing in other programs like Excel. Export with real-time stamps for easy correlation with external data logs. PIDs can be assigned priorities to speed up the data capture rate. Full support for data log file bookmarks - if you notice the engine misfiring or some other problem, using the log file bookmarks you can just reach over and press F6 to add a bookmark into the logged data that is being recorded. Then you can come back at any time and see exactly where the bookmark is and view the surrounding frames of data to analyze the problem.


Trouble Codes

Read stored and pending Diagnostic Trouble Codes. Clear the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon indicator light. Read and clear stored Freeze Frame data. Supports thousands of vehicle trouble code definitions.


Test Results

Read the status of Continuously and Non-Continuously Monitored Tests.



Full support for printing and print preview. All of the different views, including the virtual dashboards, support printing/print preview. For those who possess a knowledge of the OBD-II protocol, ScanXL™ provides an OBD-II Terminal where you can send custom commands to the vehicle. For the power users out there, ScanXL™ has built-in Javascripting support to do custom calculations on OBD-II parameters and data. Configurable alerts system - the alerts system allows you to configure the software to monitor any parameter(s) you like. When the specified conditions are met, the software will automatically play a sound (to warn you if you are driving) or insert a bookmark for you into the logged data that is being recorded.
