OBD code
« on: September 25, 2010, 12:15:10 PM »
My Smart Car OBD code inside the engine lid says "OBD CA II". Is this compatible with the Ultragauge? What does the CA stand for?

I _believe_ that shows that the vehicle meets CA emission controls and therefore, can be sold in CA (or other states that have the same guidelines).
