What is the OBD?

Why did we call ourselves Outils OBD Facile?

The tools (outils in French) we develop are designed to be easy (facile in French) to use - that's all!
Our tools are minimalist and user-friendly, but complete, so that you can concentrate on what is important: using your vehicle's data to diagnose a breakdown.

Why a site about OBD?

The aim of our site is to make diagnostics on electrical / electronic faults in vehicles accessible to private car owners. Using this site, we hope that you will be able to repair your electronic failures yourself without the need for your dealer's "diagnostic kit".

What does the EOBD-Facile software do?

Our EOBD-Facile software enables you to make full use of the possibilities of the ELM327 interface.

How do I know if my car is compatible?

The OBD standard was introduced for petrol vehicles from 2001 and diesel vehicles from 2003. Using logs sent in by EOBD-Facile users, we have also created a list of compatible vehicles that you will find on the list of OBD2 compatible vehicles page.

Can I do diagnostics using my smartphone?

Yes, EOBD-Facile also exists for Android smartphones. For more info about the EOBD-Facile app for Android.
