The diagnostic trouble code is stored in the computer system. There are many manufacturers in the world, and the codes may be different. However, anyone with an OBD-II scanning tool can connect to the port and read the diagnostic trouble code from the computer. The reason why the OBD-II scanning tool reads the code is due to the standardized pin arrangement. The standardized pin assignments are as follows.
