What can you do with
OBDCOM is a
hand-held diagnostic tool that you can keep handy so it is there whenever you
need to check your car. You can figure out why your car is
not running right, or why the check-engine light is on, and you can clear the
check-engine light. Using the information from OBDCOM you may even repair
your car yourself. You can also view real-time sensor readings to help you solve more complex problems. OBDCOM also checks the
vehicle to see if it is ready for an emissions inspection, so you know before
you take the car in for the inspection.
||Read and clear
stored and pending error codes
OBDCOM reads engine-related trouble codes, including manufacturer-specific ones. Error codes are translated into an english description so you don't
have to look it up. Having this information helps you make smart
decisions, whether repairing your car yourself, or bringing it to a
mechanic. You will have an idea what is wrong before going to a
mechanic, and avoid being ripped-off! If you do your own repairs,
you can avoid buying costly parts you don't really need.
||OBDCOM clears the
After getting the readings, you can use that information to fix
your car and turn off the check-engine light easily. After fixing the
original cause of the problem, if you do not use a diagnostic tool, your car may still stay in "limp"
mode. In other words, it won't run right because it still
"remembers" the problem. Using OBDCOM to clear the errors and the
check-engine light restores the car to normal operation after carrying out
you if the car is ready for EMISSIONS TESTING
Before going to get the car inspected, you can check it with OBDCOM to
see if the "readyness" is all clear for the emissions test!
||View and graph real-time
The sensors your engine computer uses to make the car run properly can
be monitored in real time right on the OBDCOM full-color screen. There are many uses for this live sensor
You can use
this data to see if a performance modification you have made is
having any effect. For example, after installing a cold air
intake system, you can monitor the intake air temperature. After
switching to a free-flowing air filter, you can check to see if your
maximum airflow has in fact increased.
This data also
helps you solve problems, find out why your car is not running
right, and zero in on the cause of a problem. Using the
readings or logging them while the car is operated in different conditions can
help you pinpoint the information you need to solve rough-running,
stalling, poor performance, or poor fuel economy, overheating, or
whatever other symptoms your car may have.
