OBD Scan Tool

On Board Diagnostics-Second Generation (OBD II), is a computerized system on 1996 & newer model year gasoline cars and light-duty trucks that monitors the operation of emissions-related components and systems.


This sophisticated system detects malfunctioning or deteriorating components and systems before more serious failures occur. Even before the driver of the vehicle might notice a problem, an OBD test identifies what repairs may be needed.

Remote OBD

Applus+ Technologies engineered and manufactures a remote OBD device for use by motorists, dealerships, and fleet owners. The device provides a convenient self-service option to conduct vehicle emissions tests over the internet. Dealerships and fleet owners purchase the device, while motorists borrow it from participating businesses, such as fueling stations. The compact device plugs into a vehicle’s Data Link Connector to collect emissions data from the vehicle and transmits it to a central vehicle inspection database for test results processing within two (2) minutes. Vehicle inspection results are available online via a web portal.
