Safety Precautions
SAFETY FIRST!
SAFETY FIRST!
This manual describes common test procedures used by experienced
service technicians. Many test procedures require precautions to avoid
accidents that can result in personal injury, and/or damage to your
vehicle or test equipment. Always read your vehicle's service manual
and follow its safety precautions before and during any test or service
procedure. ALWAYS observe the following general safety precautions:
When an engine is running, it produces carbon monoxide,
a toxic and poisonous gas. To prevent serious injury or
death from carbon monoxide poisoning, operate the
vehicle ONLY in a well-ventilated area.
To protect your eyes from propelled objects as well as hot
or caustic liquids, always wear approved safety eye
protection.
When an engine is running, many parts (such as the
coolant fan, pulleys, fan belt etc.) turn at high speed. To
avoid serious injury, always be aware of moving parts.
Keep a safe distance from these parts as well as other
potentially moving objects.
Engine parts become very hot when the engine is running.
To prevent severe burns, avoid contact with hot engine
parts.
P RND L
Before starting an engine for testing or troubleshooting,
make sure the parking brake is engaged. Put the
transmission in park (for automatic transmission) or
neutral (for manual transmission). Block the drive wheels
with suitable blocks.
Connecting or disconnecting test equipment when the
ignition is ON can damage test equipment and the
vehicle's electronic components. Turn the ignition OFF
before connecting the Scan Tool to or disconnecting the
Scan Tool from the vehicle’s Data Link Connector (DLC).
To prevent damage to the on-board computer when taking
vehicle electrical measurements, always use a digital
multimeter with at least 10 megOhms of impedance.
Fuel and battery vapors are highly flammable. To prevent
an explosion, keep all sparks, heated items and open
flames away from the battery and fuel / fuel vapors. DO
NOT SMOKE NEAR THE VEHICLE DURING TESTING.
Don't wear loose clothing or jewelry when working on an
engine. Loose clothing can become caught in the fan,
pulleys, belts, etc. Jewelry is highly conductive, and can
cause a severe burn if it makes contact between a power
source and ground.

CODE RETRIEVAL PROCEDURE
CODE RETRIEVAL PROCEDURE
Retrieving and using Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) for
troubleshooting vehicle operation is only one part of an
overall diagnostic strategy.
Never replace a part based only on
the DTC definition. Each DTC has a set of testing
procedures, instructions and flow charts that must be
followed to confirm the location of the problem. Always
refer to the vehicle's service manual for detailed testing
instructions.
Check your vehicle thoroughly before performing
any test.
ALWAYS observe safety precautions whenever working on a
vehicle.

Using the Scan Tool
CODE RETRIEVAL PROCEDURE
Green LED – Indicates that all engine
systems are “OK” and operating
normally. All monitors supported by
the vehicle have run and performed
their diagnostic testing, and no trouble
codes are present. All Monitor icons
will be solid.
„ Yellow LED – Indicates one of the
following conditions:
A. A PENDING CODE IS PRESENT – If
the yellow LED is illuminated, it may
indicate a Pending code is present.
Check the display for confirmation. A
Pending code is confirmed by the
presence of a numeric code and the
word PENDING.
B. MONITOR NOT RUN STATUS – If
the display shows a zero (indicating
there are no DTC’s present in the
vehicle’s computer memory), but the
yellow LED is illuminated, it may be
an indication that some of the
Monitors supported by the vehicle
have not yet run and completed their
diagnostic testing. Check the display
for confirmation. All Monitor icons that
are blinking have not yet run and
completed their diagnostic testing; all
Monitor icons that are solid have run
and completed their diagnostic testing.
„ Red LED – Indicates there is a
problem with one or more of the
vehicle’s systems. The red LED is
also used to indicate that DTC(s)
are present. In this case, the
Malfunction Indicator (Check Engine)
lamp on the vehicle’s instrument
panel will be illuminated.
„
„
Choose Freeze Frame to view Freeze Frame data for the
“priority” DTC.
„
DTC’s that start with “P0”, “P2” and some “P3” are considered
Generic (Universal). All Generic DTC definitions are the same on all
OBD2 equipped vehicles. The Scan Tool automatically displays the
code definitions (if available) for Generic DTC’s.
„
DTC’s that start with “P1” and some “P3” are Manufacturer specific
codes and their code definitions vary with each vehicle
manufacturer.
13. If more than one DTC was retrieved, and to view Freeze Frame
Data, press and release DTC/FF, as necessary.
10
Using the Scan Tool
CODE RETRIEVAL PROCEDURE
„
„
„
Each time DTC/FF is pressed and released, the Scan Tool will
scroll and display the next DTC in sequence until all DTCs in its
memory have displayed.
Freeze Frame Data (if available) will display after DTC #1.
In OBD2 systems, when an
emissions-related engine malfunction
occurs that causes a DTC to set, a
record or snapshot of engine
conditions at the time that the
malfunction occurred is also saved in
the vehicle’s computer memory. The
record saved is called Freeze Frame
data. Saved engine conditions include,
but are not limited to: engine speed,
open or closed loop operation, fuel system commands, coolant
temperature, calculated load value, fuel pressure, vehicle speed, air
flow rate, and intake manifold pressure.
If more than one malfunction is present that causes more than
one DTC to be set, only the code with the highest priority will
contain Freeze Frame data. The code designated “01” on the
Scan Tool display is referred to as the PRIORITY code, and
Freeze Frame data always refers to this code. The priority
code is also the one that has commanded the MIL on.
Retrieved information can be uploaded to a Personal Computer
(PC) with the use of optional software (see instructions included
with the software for more information).
14. When the last retrieved DTC has been displayed and DTC/FF is
pressed, the Scan Tool returns to the “Priority” Code.
15. Determine engine system(s) condition by viewing the display for any
retrieved Diagnostic Trouble Codes, code definitions and Freeze Frame
data, interpreting the green, yellow and red LEDs.
„
If DTC’s were retrieved and you are going to perform the repairs
yourself, proceed by consulting the Vehicle’s Service Repair
Manual for testing instructions, testing procedures, and flow
charts related to retrieved code(s).
„
To prolong battery life, the Scan Tool automatically shuts “Off”
approximately three minutes after it is disconnected from the
vehicle. The DTCs retrieved, Monitor Status and Freeze Frame
data (if any) will remain in the Scan Tool’s memory, and may be
viewed at any time by turning the unit “On”. If the Scan Tool’s
batteries are removed, or if the Scan Tool is re-linked to a
vehicle to retrieve codes/data, any prior codes/data in its
memory are automatically cleared.

Live Data Mode
LIVE DATA PLAYBACK
The Scan Tool lets you view and/or record "real-time" Live Data. This
information includes values (volts, rpm, temperature, speed etc.) and
system status information (open loop, closed loop, fuel system status,
etc.) generated by the various vehicle sensors, switches and actuators.
These are the same signal values generated by the sensors, actuators,
switches and/or vehicle system status information used by the vehicle's
computer when calculating and conducting system adjustments and
corrections.
The real time (Live Data) vehicle operating information (values/status)
that the computer supplies to the Scan Tool for each sensor, actuator,
switch, etc. is called Parameter Identification (PID) Data.
Each PID (sensor, actuator switch, status, etc.) has a set of operating
characteristics and features (parameters) that serve to identify it. The
Scan Tool displays this information for each sensor, actuator, switch or
status that is supported by the vehicle under test.
WARNING: If the vehicle must be driven in order to perform a
troubleshooting procedure, ALWAYS have a second person
help you. One person should drive the vehicle while the other
person observes the Scan Tool data. Trying to drive and
operate the Scan Tool at the same time is dangerous, and
could cause a serious traffic accident.
