Most vehicles produced in the last ten to fifteen years have an onboard diagnostic port, often referred to as OBD or OBDII. This is used by engineers and mechanics to communicate with onboard electronic systems to perform data logging and check for faults registered by the engine control unit and other control units installed inside a vehicle. The location of the port can vary, but is frequently found under the steering wheel, in the glovebox or behind the centre console.
A remap can also be performed through the OBD port is the engine control unit type accepts programming in this way. This means a remap can be carried out fairly quickly. File development times will obviously remain, but the engine control unit does not need to be physically accessed to perform the remap which helps increase convenience, reduce remapping times and subsequently limit the costs the customer must bear for a remap to be carried out.
We provide OBD remapping services for a lot of current common vehicle makes and models.
