While this may sound like a science fiction nightmare, the reality was that the technology that existed in the mid-1990s was specifically designed so that this repair/replace scenario, and others similar to it, would routinely occur, leaving the consumer confused, frustrated, and trapped, and at the mercy of auto manufacturers’ increasingly secretive and ingenious design technology. Independent auto repair shops would have had an increasingly difficult time repairing customer vehicles if OEMs had not been “persuaded” by the government to share and standardize diagnostic and repair information.

However, this organizational software does not assist with setting DTCs or other OBD-II functions. OBD-II monitors perform software calculations for their own operation thousands of times per second, so something must be in charge of overseeing all these tasks in order to keep things occurring in orderly fashion. Just as a conductor of a symphony orchestra keeps 100 musicians in sync with the score of the music, OBD-II systems must keep monitors coordinated and prevented from interfering with each other and with engine management systems.

P1” fault codes are primarily proprietary for manufacturer’s use only; however, certain sophisticated scan tools can interpret some of them. The third character position in a DTC indicates which specific system is experiencing a malfunction. The malfunctioning system sets a system-specific trouble code. In any OBD-II DTC, this character really provides the most useful information to a technician since the general location or system within a vehicle that is experiencing a malfunction can be identified without having to look up the DTC.
