Frequently Asked Questions

Does the car have to be running to use an OBD2 Scanner?

  • You must turn the ignition on or have the car running based on the instructions in the manual. Failure to comply with the instructions from the manual might corrupt the scanning software. 

What is the difference between a scanner and a code reader?

  • A code reader is a simplified version of a scan tool, but it's only capable of performing basic scans of trouble codes. A scan tool can read and clear trouble codes, and it may also provide advanced data reading and playback features, knowledge bases, and diagnostic procedures.
