To prevent personal injury or damage to vehicles and/or the
auto computer, read this instruction manual first and observe
the following safety precautions at a minimum whenever
working on a vehicle:

Always keep attentive while driving.
DO NOT try to make any adjustments while driving.
DO NOT mount the auto computer in a position which can
obstruct the view of the driver.
DO NOT mount the auto computer in a manner which could
cause it to be propelled through the vehicle during an accident
causing injury, such as over or near an airbag.
DO NOT route the cable in a manner which would interfere
with the operation of the vehicle controls.
Keep the auto computer dry, clean, free from oil/water or
grease. Use a mild detergent on a clean cloth to clean the
outside of the auto computer, when necessary.

2.5 Connecting to the Vehicle
Follow steps below to connect the tool to the vehicle:
1) Connect the OBD II cable to the tool.
2) Place the tool to the position you have chosen.
3) Locate DLC on vehicle.
•

5)
6)
The DLC is usually located 12 inches from the center of the
instrument panel (dash), under or around the driver’s side for
most vehicles. If Data Link Connector is not located under
dashboard, a label should be there telling location. For some
Asian and European vehicles, the DLC is located behind the
ashtray and the ashtray must be removed to access the
connector. A plastic DLC cover may be found for some
vehicles and you need to remove it before plugging the OBD2
cable. If the DLC cannot be found, refer to the vehicle’s service
manual for the location.
Plug OBD II cable to the vehicle’s DLC.
Turn the ignition on. Engine can be off or running.
The auto computer starts to communicate with the vehicle.
u If the vehicle is not OBDII compliant, a “Not Support”
message shows, and the auto computer goes to VIEW
MODE after 2 seconds. In VIEW MODE you are
allowed to view trip information and perform setups
only.

prompting you to refer to user’s manual of the tool for
troubleshooting tips.
Follow steps below to troubleshoot it:
ü Verify that the ignition is ON;
ü Check if the OBD II connector is securely connected
to the vehicle’s DLC;
ü Verify that the vehicle is OBD2 compliant;
ü Turn the ignition off and wait for about 10 seconds.
Turn the ignition back to on and repeat the procedure
from step 5.

DIESELa and DIESELb do not refer to different types of
diesel fuel. They only affect the way fuel consumption is
computed and are selected based on the way the vehicle
computer reports its sensor information. Most diesel vehicles
use DIESELa. Do the following to determine which your
diesel vehicle uses: set engine size→ choose DIESELa→
warm up the engine and idle in neutral or park→select
TRIP->CURRENT->GPH and note the GPH reading→step
on the accelerator pedal. If the GPH reading increases, you
have a DIESELa vehicle. If the GPH drops or stays the same,
you have a DIESELb vehicle.

2.7 Fill-up
NOTE: In order to get more accurate fuel consumption
readings, and to get valid TANK information, use the FILLUP
function every time when your vehicle is refueled. Make sure
the tank size and fuel types are properly set before useing this
function.
1) Fill the tank in gas station and let the pump shut off
automatically.
2) Press the button next to FILLUP, and press DONE without
adjusting the indicated fuel on the first fill-up after connecting
the auto computer to the vehicle.
3) Drive your vehicle normally with the auto computer
connected.
4) When the tank is around 1/4 full, drive to the same gas station,
use the same fuel pump, fill up the tank at the same rate and
let it shut off automatically.
5) Press the button next to FILLUP.

The number to the left of “→” is the amount of fuel the
auto computer believes was used since last fill-up; the
number to the right of “→” is the amount of fuel
reported by fuel dispenser. Before changing the
adjustment factor, these two numbers are the same.
Press DONE to finish the adjustment and the fuel economy
will be immediately affected by the adjustment.
Record the adjustment factor for your vehicle if you use it in
another vehicle and then return it back to this one, so you can
later adjust it back to the recorded one by doing the following:
use FILLUP with engine off→press DONE to clear TANK
data→when refuel, press FILLUP again→use “-” or “+” to
enter the adjustment factor manually.
It is advisable to use the FILLUP function immediately after
refuel. When you forget to do so, you can also change the
adjustment factor directly if less than 1 gallon/liter has been
used since the previous fill-up sequence was done.

IMPORTANT: Do not rely on a low reading of DISTANCE TO
EMPTY to decide when the next fill-up should be, as the
absolute accuracy is limited by following variables:
λ Different shutoff levels of fuel pumps;
λ Different tilt of the vehicle at the fuel pump due to
ground slope or vehicle loading;
λ Different temperature of the fuel (changes density – best
to refill in the morning when the fuel is colder);

Variations in vehicle sensors due to temperature and
time;

2.8 Speed
A. To Do Speed Correction
Speed and distance adjustments are used to compensate for
changes in tire size, gears, tire wear, etc...
There are several means of speed correction:
A. For tire changes, use the formula below to compute an
approximate percentage.
Approximate percentage=
Diameter of New tire
(
-1) x 100%
Diameter of
Original Tire
For example, if the diameter of the of original tire is 30 inches, and
that of the new tire is 40 inches, the percentage should be
(
40
30
-1) x 100% =33%
So setting the value to 33% will compensate for the tire change.
B. For gear changes, use the formula below to compute an
approximate percentage.
Approximate percentage =
(1-
New ratio
) x 100%
Old ratio
For example, if the old ratio is 2.75, the new one is 3.25, the
percentage should be
3.25
) x 100%= -18%
2.75
So setting the value to -18% will compensate for the gear change.

100 →111
SAVE►
The number to the left of “→” is the speed reported by
the vehicle. The number to the right of “→” is the speed
which is displayed by the auto computer by applying
this correction.
To set the speed accurately, you need a handheld GPS. One
person observes the speed displayed on the GPS and adjusts
the percentage till the number to the right of “→” agrees with
the speed indicated on the GPS while the other is driving. Set
both the GPS and the auto computer to display the same unit
of speed (KPH or MPH) to make more accurate adjustments.
Drive at an auto computer indicated speed of 60 MPH and
measure the time between mile marker posts on a highway.
For every second more than 60 it takes to go 1 mile, subtract
1% from the adjustment with the upper left button. Repeat this
a few times until it takes 60 seconds plus or minus a second to
go 1 mile.
The adjustment does not affect the vehicle speedometer or
odometer readings, but the auto computer indicated speed
and distance only.

3. Trip Computer
A trip is a process that driving data is recorded. The auto
computer automatically records trip data when the engine is
started. If the engine is off for more than 30 minutes, it starts
recording a new trip.
The auto computer records information about CURRENT,
TODAY, TOTAL and TANK trip data.
CURRENT records trip data since engine is started and it is
able to save up to 24 hours of data. CURRENT data can be
cleared by holding
for about 3 seconds and then pressing
YES.
TODAY records driving data in one day and it saves a
maximum of 24 hours of data. The auto computer starts a new
trip recording at 00:00.
TOTAL saves up to 100 hours of data. The TOTAL
information includes data recorded since last time the tool is
reset. When it records more than 100 hours of data, the driving
distance exceeds 9,999km (6,213 miles) or the fuel used is over
999L (263.85gal), TOTAL data will be cleared automatically,
and it starts recording a new trip.
TANK saves trip data since last fill-up.
Displayed items are as follow:
Ø KPH (MPH): Current vehicle speed
Ø L (GAL): Fuel used of current trip
17
Ø LK∮ (MG∮): Average fuel economy per 100 kilometer/mile
Ø LHK (MPG): Fuel economy per 100 kilometer/mile
Ø XX:XX: Time driven
Ø KM (MI): Distance driven
Ø KM (MI ): Distance remaining before tank is empty
Ø KH∮(MH∮): Average speed
Ø KPH (MPH): Maximum speed
NOTE: When vehicle speed is 0, LHK (MPG), Fuel economy
per 100 kilometer/mile, is automatically changed to LPH
(GPH), fuel used per hour.
TANK data shows the following items:
Ø L (GAL): Fuel used since last fill-up
Ø L (GAL ): Fuel remaining
Ø KM(MI): Distance driven since last fill-up
Ø KM (MI ): Distance remaining before tank is empty
Ø XX:XX: Time driven since last fill-up
Ø XX:XX : Time remaining before tank is empty
Ø LK∮(GK∮): Average fuel economy per 100 kilometer/mile
Ø LH∮ (GH∮): Average fuel economy per hour.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT disconnect the auto computer from the
