Will This Code Reader Work with My Car-
The U480 OBD2 Code Reader is specially designed to work with most OBD II compliant vehicles. It is required within USA that all 1996 and newer vehicles must be OBD2 compliant and this includes all Domestic, Asian and European vehicles. OBD was adopted in Europe in petrol cars from 2001 and in diesel cars from 2004.
A small number of 1994 and 1995 USA petrol models are OBD2 compliant. To verify if a 1994 or 1995 vehicle is OBD2 compliant, check the Vehicle Emissions Control Information (VECI) Label which is located under the bonnet or by the radiator of most vehicles. If the vehicle is OBD2 compliant, the label will designate - OBD II Certified- . Additionally, Government regulations mandate that all OBD2 compliant vehicles must have a common sixteen-pin Data Link Connector (DLC).
For your vehicle to be OBD II compliant, it must have a 16 pin DLC (Data Link Connector) under the dash and the Vehicle Emission Control Information Label must state that the vehicle is OBD II compliant. This label is located on the inside of the bonnet (hood) on most vehicles.
All OBD2 Vehicles
