Is my car OBDII complinat?

Many buyers think that their vehicles are OBDII complinat for there are OBD2 connector on their vehicles.

That concept is not right.

Only a 16 pin connector can’t prove your vehicle is OBDII compliant.

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.
You may check the EUC protocol information from the user’s manual of your car also.

All vehicles from 1996 in USA and petrol cars from 2001,diesel cars from 2004 in Europe are obd2 compliant.

As a general guideline, your passenger car is most likely to be OBDII compliant if it was manufactured after:

Argentina:2008 Hong Kong: 2007 Russia: 2012
Australia: 2006 (gas), 2007 (diesel) Israel: 2003 South Korea: 2007
Brazil: 2007 (gas) India: 2010 Taiwan: 2008
Canada: 1998 Mexico: 2006 Thailand: 2013
China(Main Land): 2009 (gas), 2011 (diesel) Morocco: 2011 Japan: 2002
Chile: 2014 (gas), 2013 (diesel) New Zealand: 2006
