Generic OBD-II functionality.  Because many of VW's recent factory repair manuals no longer have traditional 01-Engine "On Board Diagnostic" information and have replaced it with "Generic Scan Tool" data, this has become much more important than it was in the past.    For now, we'll let the screens speak for themselves.   Click the "Mode" buttons for an interactive demo:

New Version 1.8 and newer of VAG-Scope is able to graph generic OBD-2 Mode 1 data:


 

Generic OBD-II functionality is "Supported" only on VW, Audi, Seat, and Skoda cars.   It will likely work on many other brands of cars.   We'd be happy to receive feedback as to what other brands and models of cars it does and does not work on, however, we do not feel obligated to make it work on other manufacturer's cars.

Generic OBD-II functionality is limited to cars using ISO 9141-2 ("CARB"), ISO 14230 ("KWP-2000") and ISO-15765 ("CAN") protocols.    Our interfaces do not support the SAE J1850-VPW and J1850-PWM protocols used by most US-market GM and Ford products, so this cannot work on those cars.    Most early (1996-2000) OBD-II compatible Chrysler cars used ISO-9141-2.   Many newer Chrysler cars use SAE-J1850 and are incompatible.     Most European and Asian cars use ISO and should be compatible.    In US models, Generic OBD-II compatiblilty was required as of model year 1996.   In Canada, 1998.   In the European Market, 2001 (gasoline-powered)  and 2004 (diesel-powered).
