Why You Need OBD Readers?

As these OBD are always on the alert and keep a constant vigil on all the parts, even a minor change in the smooth functioning of the engine, full throttle warning, engine overload, variation in the coolant temperature are immediately reported. This helps the user in taking preventive measures and avoids it to become a major breakdown.

At times it happens so that there is a minor loose connection due to which the power connection goes off and the engine doesn't budge even a bit. We suddenly panic and call for a mechanic. The mechanic comes in his own sweet time, searches for major problems and then comes to the minor ones. Finally when he detects, you would realize that you have lost considerable amount of time, money and over and above, you lost your cool mind. Is it necessary to waste all these precious things? Not at all. Instead, go for an OBD and be tension free. And along with it save your time, energy and money.

How we can use OBD Reader?

On-Board Diagnostic readers – OBD readers are used to get the live information about the engine. There are two types of OBD readers – OBD 1 reader and OBD 2 reader. The vehicles that were manufactured before 1996 came with OBD 1 Reader. And after that OBD 2 readers are used in vehicles. The difference between the two is OBD 1 readers have no standard codes. It will vary from one manufacturer to another. Whereas in OBD 2 readers standardization of code is achieved. So whoever be the manufacturer of the vehicle, it will give the standard code.

Once the OBD reader is plugged in to a vehicle, the real time data of the engine will be obtained. With the help of this the identification of problem in the engine has become easy. So the time taken to solve the problem has been reduced. It will check the status of the engine and send data in the form of codes These codes are called Diagnostic Trouble Codes - DTC. The codes will be displayed in the LCD screen. These codes have to be searched in net or in some code dictionaries to find the problem description.

OBD readers will send signal when there is a problem in the emission from the engine, vehicle's fuel injector, temperature gauge, Oxygen sensor. Problems related to Check Engine Light can also be determined using OBD readers. Getting trouble code from the OBD readers will not always ensure that there is some problem in engine. Those data should be analyzed well before changing any part in the vehicle. Because of the bad sensor sometimes the OBD reader will send wrong signal. Careful analysis with the help of computer is needed before coming to any conclusion.
