On-board diagnosis of engine and transmission systems has been mandated by government regulation for light and medium vehicles since the 1996 model year. The regulations specify many of the detailed features that on-board diagnostics must exhibit. In addition, the penalties for not meeting the requirements or providing in-field remedies can be very expensive. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of how and why OBD systems function and the technical features that a diagnostic should have in order to ensure compliant and successful implementation.
Fundamental design objectives and features needed to achieve those objectives for generic on-board diagnostics will be covered. The course will also include a review of the California Air Resources OBD II regulation, providing students with a firm foundation for reading and understanding the requirements, including the in-use rate portion of the regulations and how to properly calculate and output the required rate information. Relationships between the regulation and various SAE and ISO recommended practices will be reviewed. The course will also explore the relationship of the OBD system with the underlying control system.
Note that because of proprietary considerations, this class does not provide details of algorithm design, algorithm performance, or algorithm application. The class will cover general OBD algorithm designs and the features required to promote sound OBD system design.
