Is my truck OBDII compliant?

I've got a scanner, but will it work on my 2002 SD? I've heard that it won't and have heard that it will?

Any vehicle 1996 and newer has OBDII connections. Some vehicles give more info than others and for a diesel, something like autoenginuity works best. But just to pull codes, any scanner will do.

Not calling you a liar but I would like to know why these trucks would use anything different. The other week I went and looked at a 2005 F-250 that would run. Guy ran it out of fuel and it didn't pull any codes. Yesterday with the same scanner I used it to clear an oxygen sensor code on my girlfriends malibu

it should tell you the codes, but it may not tell you what the codes mean.

I know I have used an sct xcal 2 to pull codes on my truck when I had problems with the cps.

The scanner I have doesn't tell you the meanings of the codes but the book that came with it does

Your truck has OBDII connector. How ever it is OBDII exempt. Meaning most OBDII scanners will not work with your truck. Unless they are designed to read diesels.

I have AE Ford Enhanced.

I also have an Actron CP9145 it does not read any codes on my truck. But plug it into my 04 Escape and it works fine.

Some tuners are capable of reading codes from our trucks as well.
