Can you give an example of the fault code display of the OBD2 protocol?

Here’s an example of an OBD2 fault code display:

P0135 – This is the actual fault code, typically shown alphanumerically on the diagnostic tool.

  • P: Identifies the code as powertrain related (most common category for engine and transmission issues).
  • 0: Indicates a generic code (applicable to most vehicles) – there are also manufacturer-specific codes that start with a 1.
  • 135: Points to a specific problem within the powertrain category. In this case, P0135 refers to a malfunction in the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) heater circuit in Bank 1 Sensor 1 (location details vary depending on vehicle).

The diagnostic tool might display the code alongside additional information, such as:

  • Description: “Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)” – This clarifies the specific issue related to the code.
  • Possible Causes: This section might list potential reasons for the fault code, such as a faulty oxygen sensor heater element, damaged wiring harness, or malfunctioning engine control module (ECM).

While the specific format and details may vary slightly depending on the diagnostic tool, OBD2 ensures a consistent overall structure for fault code displays, making it easier for technicians to understand and diagnose problems across various car models.
