OK this is for legislated E/E diagnostic test modes for emissions
Any PID can be requested using J2190.
This describes emissions and non emissions related messages can be
used with a diagnostic serial data link such as described in SAE J1850
or ISO 9141-2.

Asked and answered my times in rec.autos.tech
The correct documents can be obtained from SAE www.sae.org and ISO
