A federal government mandate put on-board diagnostic systems--at the time strictly for emissions--into automobiles in the 1970s. But it wasnrsquo;t until 2002 that automakers made their diagnostic codes available to the public. Now backyard mechanics and professionals alike have access to these codes, which today monitor everything from cylinder misfires to improperly closed gas caps. All thatrsquo;s missing is information about how to use this invaluable diagnostic tool; this book provides that information. Starting with why scanners are needed to work effectively on modern cars, author Tracy Martin teaches readers how to choose the right tool (therersquo;s a bewildering array of scanners, ranging from hand-held units to computer software to giant shop machines), how to use it, and what each code means. He also includes a complete guide to online information sources as well as a comprehensive list of codes.

Tracy Martin writes for Motorcycle Consumer News, RoadBike, Friction Zone, PowerSports, and Dealer News magazines. Author of three books, Tracy co-authored the MSF's Guide to Motorcycling Excellence, Second Edition . Published by Motorbooks International, Tracy 's latest book, Motorcycle Electrical Systems: Troubleshooting and Repair , is available at book sellers everywhere. His first book, How to Diagnose and Repair Automotive Electrical Systems , is also available at book stores. In addition to writing, Tracy teaches the Total Control Advanced Riding Clinic with Lee Parks, author of Total Control . Tracy has presented riding skills and motorcycle suspension seminars across the United States and recently in England and the Russian Federation .
