I was very fortunate to interview Bob Gruszczynski recently to discuss all-things OBD. Topics discussed include monitors, in-use performance testing (IUPT), positive kinetic energy reporting (PKE), electric vehicles and energy sources, P, B, and C codes, the future of DTCs, unified diagnostic services (UDS), 3-byte DTCs, regulations, and more.
