Launch CRP818 using tips: how to troubleshoot the common issues?
Issue 1. System halts when reading data stream
It may be caused by a slackened connector. Please turn off the CRP818, firmly connect the connector, and switch it on again.
Issue 2. The screen of the main unit flashes at engine ignition start.
Caused by electromagnetic disturbing, and this is a normal phenomenon.
Issue 3. There is no response when communicating with the on-board computer.
Please confirm the proper voltage of power supply and check if the throttle
has been closed, the transmission is in the neutral position, and the water is in proper temperature.
Issue 4. What to do if the system fails to start auto VIN detection?
Please check the following possible reasons:
• Whether CRP 818 is properly connected to the vehicle’s DLC.
• Whether the “Automatic detection on Connect” switch is OFF. If yes, slide it to ON.
Issue 5. Why are there so many fault codes?
Usually, it’s caused by a poor connection or fault circuit grounding.
