Live Data: Read and display the real-time operating data and parameters of the car ECU. (Application: By observing these real-time data streams, maintenance technicians can gain insight into the overall performance of the vehicle and provide guidance for vehicle maintenance.)

Freeze Frame: When the vehicle has a fault, a fault code will be generated, and the freeze-frame can be used to view the data of the vehicle at the moment when the fault code is generated. (Application: The maintenance technician judges the fault location based on the relevant data.)

I/M Readiness: This shows whether the various emissions-related systems on the vehicle are operating properly and are ready for inspection and maintenance testing.

O2 Sensor Test: The O2 sensor test function allows you to retrieve and view the O2 sensor monitor test results from the vehicle’s onboard computer to view the most recently completed test.

On-Board Monitor Test: This function can be used to read the on-board diagnostic monitoring test results of a specific component/system.

EVAP Test: The EVAP test function allows you to initiate a leak test of the vehicle’s EVAP system. This tool does not perform a leak test, but sends a signal to the vehicle’s on-board computer to initiate the test. The vehicle manufacturer determines the standards and methods for stopping the test after the test has started. Before using the system test function, please refer to the vehicle’s maintenance manual to determine the process required to stop the test.

    Very unhappy with the seller for not keeping his word and blackmailing. The product was lost by the parcel company, I contacted the seller who confirmed that he would return the payment, but he did not do it and the claims time passed. Thank goodness that Alliexpress made me the return because the seller only blackmailed saying that if I did not value it with 5 stars I would not make the return.
    Bad experience with this seller who has run out of a customer…
