What is an OBD II based smog check?
For vehicles 2000 and newer, the new on-board diagnostic (OBD) computer check, slated for deployment mid-2014, simplifies the smog check process by eliminating the tailpipe test altogether. This leaves the OBD computer test and a visual inspection to be completed. For drivers in San Diego, this means greater convenience, as inspection times and costs will be lessened.
The new device that is going to check the OBD computer is called the Data Acquisition Device, a.k.a. DAD.The software is known as the OIS. This device plugs into these newer vehicles usually through a port located underneath the steering wheel, and will give the smog technician all the data they need to identify the vehicle and check the readiness status of all the emissions components.
This system is less intrusive and does not put a load on the drive train
like the old test did.
For vehicles between years 1976 -1999, the smog check remains relatively the same with an acceleration simulation mode (ASM) test. OBD computer check (1996 and newer), and a visual inspection.
