LAUNCH X431 V (Upgrade Version of X431 V PRO) Bi-Directional Full System Diagnostic Scan Tool Code Readers & Scan Tool Specification Sheet
LAUNCH X431 V+ Reset Service Functions:
Besides ECU coding, ALL systems’ diagnoses and bi-directional test, X-431 V+ also features
various and helpful service functions. The most commonly performed service functions contain:
1. Oil Reset Service
This function can be performed in the following cases:
i. If the service lamp is on, you must provide service for the car. After service,you need to
reset the driving mileage or driving time so that the service lamp turns off and the system
enables the new service cycle.
ii. After changing engine oil or electric appliances that monitor oil life, you need to reset the
service lamp.
2. Steering Angle Calibration
This function can be performed in the following cases:
i. To reset the steering angle, first find the relative zero point position for the car to drive in
straight line. Taking this position as reference, the ECU can calculate the accurate angle for
left and right steering.
ii. After replacing the steering angle position sensor, replacing steering mechanical parts (such
as steering gearbox, steering column, end tie rod, steering knuckle), performing four-wheel
alignment, or recovering car body, you must reset the steering angle.
3. Electronic Parking Brake Reset
i. If the brake pad wears the brake pad sense line, the brake pad sense linesends a signal sense
line to the on-board computer to replace the brake pad.After replacing the brake pad, you
must reset the brake pad. Otherwise, the car alarms.
ii. Reset must be performed in the following cases:
1) The brake pad and brake pad wear sensor are replaced.
2) The brake pad indicator lamp is on.
3) The brake pad sensor circuit is short, which is recovered. The servo motor is replaced.
4. ABS Bleeding
This function allows you to perform various bi-directional tests to check the operating conditions
of Anti- lock Braking System (ABS).
i. When the ABS contains air, the ABS bleeding function must be performed to bleed the
brake system to restore ABS brake sensitivity.
ii. If the ABS computer, ABS pump, brake master cylinder, brake cylinder, brake line, or
brake fluid is replaced, the ABS bleeding function must be performed to bleed the ABS.
5. Electronic Throttle Position Reset / Learn
This function enables you to initialize the throttle actuators so that the “learned” values stored on
ECU are returned to the default state. Doing so can accurately regulate throttle (or idle engine)
operations to control the amount of air intake. Throttle matching must be performed in the
following cases:
i. The ECU is replaced and the ECU does not yet store throttle working features.
ii. The ECU is disconnected from power and the ECU memory is lost.
iii. The throttle assembly is replaced.
iv. The intake pipe is replaced or removed, which affects idle speed control by ECU and
throttle body.
v. The throttle is cleaned. Although the idle throttle potentiometer features remain unchanged,
with the same throttle opening, the air inflow has changed and idle speed control features
have changed.
6. Battery Register/Battery Maintenance
This function enables you to perform a resetting operation on the monitoring unit of vehicle
battery, in which the original low battery fault information will be cleared and battery matching
will be done.
Battery matching must be performed in the following cases:
i. Main battery is replaced. Battery matching must be performed to clear original low battery
information and prevent the related control module from detecting false information. If the
related control module detects false information, it will invalidate some electric auxiliary
functions, such as automatic start & stop function, sunroof without one-key trigger
function,power window without automatic function.
ii. Battery monitoring sensor. Battery matching is performed to re-match the control module
and motoring sensor to detect battery power usage more accurately, which can avoid an
error message displaying on the instrument panel.
7. Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Regeneration
DPF regeneration is used to clear PM (Particulate Matter) from the DPF filter through
continuous combustion oxidation mode (such as high temperature heating combustion, fuel
additive or catalyst reduce PM ignition combustion) to stabilize the filter performance.
DPF regeneration may be performed in the following cases:
i. The exhaust back pressure sensor is replaced.
ii. The PM trap is removed or replaced.
iii. The fuel additive nozzle is removed or replaced.
iv. The catalytic oxidizer is removed or replaced.
v. The DPF regeneration MIL is on and maintenance is performed.
vi. The DPF regeneration control module is replaced.
8. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring Sytem Reset
makes tpms senser in displaying sensor IDs from the vehicle’s ECU, inputting TPMS sensor
replacement IDs and activate tpms sensors.
9. Anti-Theft Matching (IMMOBILIZER)
This function can protect your car from being stolen by clearing the lost car key information and
programming new key into the ECU database. Also known as keys programming.
10. Injector Coding
i. Diesel injector code need programming ID and parameters to the ECU for accurate
communication and Injection control system.
ii. Program in the new fuel injector numbers after replacement to replace the ones previously
programmed into the ECU.
11. Camshaft Gear Learning
Help user to finish tooth learning after changing crankshaft in car engine, so the new part can be
