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.
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
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.
1. Turn the ignition off.
2. Locate the vehicle's 16-pin Data Link
Connector (DLC).

Using the Scan Tool
CODE RETRIEVAL PROCEDURE
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.

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.
14. If more than one DTC was retrieved, and to view Freeze Frame
Data, press and release DTC/FF, as necessary.

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.
11
Using the Scan Tool
THE SYSTEM MENU - VIEWING OEM ENHANCED DTCs (except Ford/Mazda)
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.
15. When the last retrieved DTC has been displayed and DTC/FF is
pressed, the Scan Tool returns to the “Priority” Code.
16. Determine engine system(s) condition by viewing the Scan Tool’s
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.

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.

CODE RETRIEVAL PROCEDURES
Overview of Ford Code Retrieval Process
Ford's computer self-diagnostic system is
divided into four main sections:
1. "Key On Engine Off" (KOEO) Self-Test
2. "Continuous Memory" (CM) Self-Test
3. "Key On Engine Running" (KOER) SelfTest
4. Other EEC-IV System tests
These Self-Tests are designed to monitor and/or test the components
and circuits that are controlled by the vehicle's computer, and to save
and/or transmit test results to the Scan Tool.
The "Continuous Memory" Self-Test is designed to run continuously
whenever the vehicle is normal operation. If a fault is detected by the
"Continuous Memory" Self-Test, a fault code is saved in the vehicle's
computer memory for later retrieval.
Self-Tests are designed in such a way that in order to properly diagnose
a problem, you must perform all the Self-Tests, in the proper sequence.
If you fail to perform a test, or you perform a test out of sequence, you
might miss a problem that is only detected during that part of the test.
Key On Engine Off (KOEO) Test
During the KOEO Self-Test, two groups of codes are retrieved.

The first group of codes are called "KOEO codes". A "KOEO" icon
shows to indicate code is a "KOEO" code.

The second group of codes are called "Continuous Memory" codes.
A "Continuous Memory" icon shows to indicate the code is a
"Continuous Memory" code.
Check your vehicle thoroughly before performing any test.
ALWAYS observe safety precautions whenever working on a
vehicle.

indicates the vehicle's computer is activating relays, solenoids,
and other components to check their operation.
WARNING: On some vehicles equipped with an Electric
Cooling Fan, the computer activates the cooling fan to check
its operation. To avoid injury, keep hands or any part of your
body a safe distance from the engine during this test.
 If the Scan Tool fails to link to the vehicle's computer, a "Vehicle is
not responding" message shows.

These tests are additional, supplemental tests, and are not
needed to retrieve Diagnostic Trouble Codes. They are
included to further assist in troubleshooting vehicle problems.
Cylinder Balance Test (Vehicles equipped with Sequential
Electronic Fuel Injected (SEFI) systems only)
The Cylinder Balance Test assists in finding a weak or noncontributing
cylinder. The computer shuts off fuel (cuts off power to injectors) to each
cylinder, in sequence, and monitors for RPM changes (drop). Based on
this information, the computer determines if all the cylinders are
contributing power equally (for proper engine operation), or if some
cylinders are only contributing partially or not contributing at all.
Cylinder Balance Test Procedure
Check your vehicle thoroughly before performing any test.
ALWAYS observe safety precautions whenever working on a
vehicle.

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.
1. Locate the vehicle's Data Link Connector (DLC).
Some DLCs have a plastic cover that must be removed before
connecting the Scan Tool's cable connector.

vehicle's computer memory. If no
codes are present, a "No DTC's are
presently stored in the vehicle's
computer" message is displayed.
6. If more than one code was retrieved press DTC/FF, as necessary,
to display additional codes one at a time.
In the case of long code definitions, a small arrow is shown in the
upper/lower right-hand corner of the code display area to indicate
the presence of additional information.

Live Data Mode
VIEWING LIVE DATA
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.
VIEWING LIVE DATA
1. While linked to the vehicle, start the engine, then press LD.
2. A “One moment please . . .” message displays while the Scan Tool
establishes communication with the vehicle.

If the Scan Tool fails to establish communication with the vehicle,
