A Basic Understanding of Automotive Diagnostic
Scanners
  • The profusion of scan tools and code readers
    available to the consumers through various
    e-Commerce websites, auto parts stores and
    retailers it is an undeniable that the automotive
    electronic equipment manufacturers have
    released that there is growing customer base for
    such products. Once these products were
    solely available to major dealers and experts,
    today an automotive diagnostic system are made
    accessible to owners and enthusiasts alike.

Delving into auto scanners, and the reason for
their sudden need?
  •  
  • In the past, mechanics, vehicle owners and
    enthusiasts pretty much did quite well without
    them. However, today the following questions
    leave automobile hobbyists and even some
    professional repair technicians befuddled
  •  
  • Are they really necessary for executing a repair
    work?
  • Are they useful at all?
  • If they have emerged as an essential component in
    repair, how computer trouble codes and data
    streams which are produced by these diagnostic
    tools, are to be fathomed by a lay user?
  • What are the specific functions of these
    diagnostic tools?
  • From where did the need for these tools arise?

Lets Understand the Basics First
  • The user is able to receive and view information
    from a vehicles on-board engine management
    computer system, enabled by Both scanners Viz.
    Porsche Scanners VW/Audi Scanners and code
    readers.
  • The major difference b/w scanners code readers
    is of the quantitative nature. Elaborating on
    the aforesaid automotive diagnostic information
    along with additional diagnostic information
    can be provided by scanners. They are also
    capable to be used for performing functional
    tests. Whereas, code readers have a comparatively
    limited functionality enabling the user to
    receive automotive diagnostic information, only.

  • Contrary to the aforesaid, a number of tasks
    could be performed by an onboard diagnostic
    engine management system, which are inclusive of
    but not limited to, the following
  •  
  • Controlling communication, lighting, navigation
    and other computer-related systems.
  • Vehicle security.
  • Managing climate control systems.
  • Managing fuel-injection and ignition systems.
  • Shifting automatic transmissions.

  • Nevertheless, monitoring the performance of
    emissions controls, components and systems and
    notifying the driver about their car being a
    source of harmful automobile emissions is the
    most important function an onboard diagnostic
    engine management system performs in tandem
    with scanners Viz. Porsche scanners and VW/Audi
    scanners and code readers. Code readers and
    scanners have only the technical capacity of
    reading the information generated by an
    on-board vehicle engine management computer
    system.
  • Initially on-board vehicle engine management
    computer systems were built into vehicles by
    various automobile manufacturers. This was the
    first generation of On-Board Diagnostics
    (OBD-I).

  • It was developed in the early1980s. In doing so
    the intention of the vehicle manufacturers was to
    enable the driver to receive warning about any
    malfunction that occurred in the emissions
    control. This generation of On-Board Diagnostics
    was quite expensive wasnt standardized across
    automobile manufacturers. The majority of these
    scanners were produced in USA at that time.
  • A myriad of cables and adapters were used by
    scanning tools such as Porsche scanners and
    VW/Audi Scanners. These wererequired to be
    plugged in to numerous data connectors installed
    in cars in order to retrieve diagnostic
    information generated by OBD-I systems. These
    on-board data connectors differed according to
    the manufactures, the year and the model.
