E/E Diagnostic Test Modes
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This document supersedes SAE J1979 May 2007, and is technically equivalent to ISO 15031-5 2010, with the addition of new capabilities required by revised regulations from the California Air Resources Board and revised regulations from the European Commission.
This document is intended to satisfy the data reporting requirements of On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) regulations in the United States and Europe, and any other region that may adopt similar requirements in the future. This document specifies:
a. message formats for request and response messages,
b. timing requirements between request messages from external test equipment and response messages from vehicles, and between those messages and subsequent request messages,
c. behavior of both the vehicle and external test equipment if data is not available,
d. a set of diagnostic services, with corresponding content of request and response messages, to satisfy OBD regulations,
This document includes capabilities required to satisfy OBD requirements for multiple regions, model years, engine types, and vehicle types. Those regulations are not yet final for some regions, and are expected to change in the future. This document makes no attempt to interpret the regulations and does not include applicability of the included diagnostic services and data parameters for various vehicle applications. The user of this document is responsible to verify the applicability of each section of this document for a specific vehicle, engine, model year and region.
SAE J1979/ISO 15031-5 specifies diagnostic services and functionally addressed request/response messages required to be supported by motor vehicles and external test equipment for diagnostic purposes which pertain to motor vehicle emission-related data. Any external test equipment meeting the requirements of SAE J1978 is intended to be able to use these messages to retrieve emissions-related information from the vehicle.
Each section of this part of SAE J1979/ISO 15031-5 which specifies additional detail to existing sections of ISO 9141-2, ISO 14230-4, SAE J1850, and ISO 15765-4 supersede those specifications.
This part of SAE J1979/ISO 15031-5 references the SAE J1979-DA (Digital Annex), which includes all definitions of PIDs, OBDMIDs, TIDs and INFOTYPES.
NOTE: SAE J1979/ISO 15031-5 provides the mechanism to satisfy the requirements included in the country-specific regulations and not all capabilities included in this document are required by the country-specific regulations. SAE J1979 is not considered a final authority for interpretation of the regulations, so readers should determine the applicability of capabilities defined in this document for their specific needs.

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.
