Today I’ll demonstrate how to use Launch ThinkCar 2 to read data & fault codes via testing a 2014 Honda Accord. Okay, let’s start.
Turn on the car ignition first, plug ThinkCar 2 into OBD2 port of the car.
Open ThinkCar 2 app that was installed, there are 5 main functions on the menu: all system diagnostic, maintenance functions, OBD functions, flashlight, acceleration timer.
The maintenance functions including 15 kinds of special functions, such as oil reset, AFS, BMS, DPF, SAS,TPMS, BOX, EGR, IMMO, sunroof, bleeding, throttle adaption, etc.
Now I will choose the first function “All System Diagnostic” for a test. Wait for a while to auto scan the VIN number, if it failed, please manually input the VIN number.
It reads successfully, I have the car information now, press “OK” to continue.
System Selection >> PGM-FI/Diesel (Engine System) >> OK
Read Data Stream >> Manual Select >> Select options required, press “OK”
Dada stream has been read out, press tree diagram followed on the right side to read its waveform.
Press “Combine” will allow to select 4 options at one time.
Exit, press “Report” to have a look.
