As modern cars have increased in complexity, the onboard auto electrical network has taken over more and more functionality and has increased in complexity itself. Since 1996, all vehicles must be equipped with an OBD II scan port, which allows one tool to access thousands of makes and models.
But it’s not quite that easy – there are hundreds of generic PIDS (Parameter IDs), and thousands of specific codes based on manufacturer, and these codes often overlap in their meaning (so P1234 will mean something different on a Mazda than it does on a BMW).
There are a wide range of scan tools and code scanners on the market, which wildly fluctuate in price and functionality. This can quickly become overwhelming.
We are going to take you through the functionality of an OurAuto Scan Tool, so you can make an informed decision.
When we began working on our scan tool, we had a look at what the market had to offer. Frustratingly, price does not always equal better quality—sometimes you’re just paying for the brand name.
The OurAuto Diagnostic Tool Series II is one of Launch’s latest top-end car comprehensive diagnostic scan tools. Our research indicated that Launch provides the best features and functionality at the best price, performing at least as well as some of the pricier brands out there, and sometimes better.
The Scan Tool covers all makes and models in the oceanic region (and automatically detects the vehicle make and model), has OEM level access to module programming, resets and relearns, and comes with three years of software updates.
You can quickly reset fault codes, read live data provided in easy to read graphs, and generate Dynamic vehicle health reports, with the option to email these reports to your customers.
It also has the exclusive ability to seamlessly integrate with VACC Motortech, giving our customers the ability to access an exhaustive range of technical information and manuals, making those difficult to solve issues a little bit easier.
