Electrical/Electronic Systems Diagnostic Terms, Definitions, Abbreviations, and Acronyms—Equivalent to ISO/TR 15031-2:April 30, 2002
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Acronyms that do not logically fit the term.
Acronyms existing at the component level, i.e., their terms contain the base word or noun that describes the generic item that is being further defined.
Acronyms for terms that appear to contain the base word, but are frequently used as a modifier to another base word. (This use may possibly be thought of as following the methodology since the acronym is normally used as a modifier.)

The committee shall increase customer satisfaction and lower product life cycle costs by investigating and recommending standards that will promote more effective diagnosis of vehicle electrical and electronic system problems. The resulting recommended practices will focus on model year 1992 and beyond. However, they may be useful for prior vehicle diagnosis/repair and may serve as a basis for additional recommended practices and pre-model year 1992 vehicles.Vision Statement: A standard disgnostic connector (in a standard location) will be in all vehicles. Pin assignments for a portion of the connector will also be standardized.All vehicles will implement a set of industry standard diagnostic test modes that can be executed over a standard communication data line (i.e., SAE J1850, ISO 9141-2). Industry standard test information will be associated with some of these diagnostic test modes.An OBD II scan tool will be able to utilize a minimum set of standardized diagnostic test modes and test information.A system will be in place that will allow standard electronic access of all E/E diagnostic service information. Future diagnostic legislation will be in harmony with this vision and the resulting SAE Recommended Practices.
