● Live Data
NOTE
Not all function options listed above are applicable to all vehicles. Available
options may vary by the year, model, and make of the test vehicle. A “The
selected mode is not supported!” message displays if the option is not
applicable to the vehicle under test.

4.4.2 Read Codes
Read Codes menu lets you read trouble codes found in the control unit.
Typical menu options include:
● Present/Permanent/Current Codes
● Pending Codes
● History Codes
● Code History
● Self Diagnostic
Present/Permanent/Current codes stored in a control module are used to
help identify the cause of a trouble or troubles with a vehicle. These codes
have occurred a specific number of times and indicate a problem that
requires repair.
29
Automotive Diagnostic System GT80_English_V1.00
Pending codes are also referred to as maturing codes that indicate
intermittent faults. If the fault does not occur within a certain number of drive
cycles (depending on vehicle), the code clears from memory. If a fault occurs
a specific number of times, the code matures into a DTC and the MIL
illuminates or blinks.
History codes are also referred to as past codes that indicate intermittent
DTCs that are not currently active. Code history is number of engine starts
since the DTC(s) were first detected (to see if they are current or
intermittent).
Self diagnostic lets you manually activate system tests that check for DTCs.
Usually it includes a KOEO (Key-on, engine-off ) test and a KOER (key-on,
engine-running) test.
To read codes from a vehicle:
1.Press Read Codes from Select Diagnostic Function menu. A code list
including code number and its description displays.

selected control module. Also it erases all temporary ECU information,
including freeze frame. So make sure that the selected system are
completely checked and serviced by technicians and no vital information will
be lost before clearing codes.
NOTE
● To clear codes, make sure that the ignition key is switched to ON with the
engine off.
● Erase Codes does not fix the problem that caused the fault! DTCs should
only be erased after correcting the condition(s) that caused them.
To clear codes:
1.Press Erase Codes from Select Diagnostic Function menu.

GT80 allows you to view live data information in 6 differenct types of display
modes.
● Text Mode - this is the default mode which displays the parameters in
texts.
● Graph Mode - displays the parameters in waveform graphs, giving you
the ‘real picture’ of what’s going on in the vehicle. You can view up to 4
parameter graphs simultaneously and easily find and zoom in on a
particular string of data.
● Merged Graph Mode - merges multiple PID plots into one coordinate, so
you can easily see how they affect each other, providing you with the
most comprehensive and functional look at live data possible.
● Guage Mode - displays the parameters in the form of an analog meter.
● Study Mode - gives you the ability to learn good live sensor data values
during idle, KEKO, acceleration, deceleration, part load and heavy load
on each vehicle comes into your shop and records them for future
reference.
● Comparison Mode - If that vehicle comes in is with a problem, you can
easily compare the faulty sensor and parameter readings to the good
readings, and you will be alarmed when a faulty sensor reading is
detected.
NOTE
● Study and Comparison modes are available for viewing of parameter
readings in text mode ONLY.

5 Bi-directional Test Operations
GT80 allows you to use the scan tool temporarily activate or control a vehicle
system or component. With GT80, the check of electronic components such
as switches, sensors, relays, & actuators is made a simple task. It allows you
to recalibrate, adapt or configure certain components after making repairs or
replacement. It gives you the ability to ‘flash’ a control unit with new program
data. Provided that a module can be re-coded, GT80 allows for the coding
and programing of a replacement control module or changing previously
stored incorrect coding as expensive factory tools do. In addition, it lets you
recode the transponder in a mechanical key or key fob. When a key for a
modern vehicle is replaced, the new unit will often turn the mechanical switch
but fail to initialize the system or start the vehicle. If this occurs, it is typically
because the transponder inside the key has not been coded to that particular
system.
5.1 Active Tests
Active Tests also known as Actuator Tests are bi-directional diagnostic tests
on vehicle systems and component. The tests let you to use the scanner
temporarily activate or control a vehicle system or component, and when you
exit the test, the system/component returns to normal operation.
Some tests display a command to the operator. For example, if “Press Brake
Pedal” displays, the operator has to press and hold the brake pedal and then
continue. The sequence, number, and type of tests are dictated by the control
module.
On some systems, the actuator tests cannot be restarted until the ignition key
is switched off for some time. Alternatively, briefly start and run the engine,
shut down, turn the ignition to the run position, then re-initiate the actuator
tests.
IMPORTANT
The tests activate a component, but they do not check if the component is
working correctly. Make sure the components to be tested are in good
condition and correctly mounted.
NOTE
Available tests depend on the control module under test and the vehicle itself.
To start a test:
1.Press Active Test from the menu and a list of available options displays.
39
Automotive Diagnostic System GT80_English_V1.00
Figure 5-1 Sample Active Test Screen
2.Select an option to start the test and live data of the selected test displays.
Figure 5-2 Sample Active Test Screen
3.Follow on-screen instructions to make proper selections and operations to
complete the tests.
4.To exit the test, tap the Back button or the Close button at the top right of
the screen.
Before running any tests, always observe the safety instructions provided in
this manual and the warnings provided by the vehicle manufacturer. In
addition, follow any warnings and descriptions provided on the scanner
screens.
● Never run the tests while the vehicle is moving.

5.3 Coding and Programming
GT80 allows for the coding and programing of a replacement control module
or changing previously stored incorrect coding.
Coding also known as Teach-in Program or Component Adaptation. It is the
process of selecting and activating one program for a specific vehicle from a
set of programs that the factory installed in the control module. This allows
one control module to be used for different models, countries, and emission
applications.
Programming is the process of taking a blank control module and then adding
the correct vehicle program to memory.
