ASE to Hold Second Webinar on OBDII Data

Feb. 5, 2024
The "OBDII Data - Reading Between the Lines" webinar aims to bridge gaps in knowledge techs may have with handling incomplete monitor tests.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) will be holding part two of its “OBDII Data - Reading Between the Lines” webinar, according to a press release.

Technical trainer Rick Escalambre will return, with this session focusing on how to handle incomplete monitor tests. The webinar will explore the monitor tests associated with diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) that trigger malfunction indicator lights (MIL), such as a MIL commanded “On” representing a failed monitor test, and “O” meaning an emissions failure.

The webinar aims to bridge any gaps in knowledge by demonstrating differences between a readiness flag and individual monitor tests, explaining the differences between monitoring test completions and conditions, and how to use MODE $09 and MODE $06 to identify monitor tests that have the potential for difficulty.

Anyone who missed part one of the webinar may register to view a recorded session here. Participants of the live webinar will receive a certificate of attendance afterward.
