●Turn off the Check Engine Light：
THINKOBD enables you to clear the engine warning light, after completing the full obd2 diagnostics with ease. The main purpose of this tool is to:
-Scan the engine systems;
-Tell you about the nature of the issue;
-Give an accurate reason why the engine check light is on;
-Help to detect any potential problems;
-Avoid excessive costs for unnecessary repairs.
-The warning light does not turn off till you fix the issue.
●Pass Emission Test Smoothly：
With this scan tool, you don’t have to drive around endlessly, continuously coming back to the repair shop for the retest.
You can do a quick check of the vehicle, to determine if it is ready to pass the emission test.
Check the readiness of the monitoring system. It is an excellent function to use prior to having a vehicle inspected for compliance to a state emissions program.
●O2 Sensor Test
Retrieve O2 sensor monitor test results for the most recently performed tests from the vehicle’s on-board computer.
View the results of On-Board Monitor tests. The tests are useful after servicing or after erasing a vehicle’s control module memory.
●Get Effective Diagnostic Result：
Your repair work can be done in a short time by using THINKOBD as follows:
Display the vehicle identification number (VIN), the calibration identification (CIN), and the calibration verification number (CVN), and other information of the test vehicle.
Mode $08 command tells your car to start a test of the “evaporative emission control system”, to prevent fuel from evaporating out of your tank and contributing to smog.
By this way, you can verify your fix right away, without waiting a few days (or longer) for your car to run it automatically.
●Freeze Frame Data
Snapshot the precise conditions of the car when a fault code triggers the check engine light, to help identify the problem.
●Live Data Stream
Display the real time PID data from ECU (as analog inputs and outputs, digital inputs and outputs, and system status information broadcast on the vehicle data stream)
The live data produced is accurate and tells you exactly what you require to know about your vehicle.
Every code in THINKOBD comes with a description to aid technicians in efficient vehicle diagnostics and repair.
This will save you the trouble of having to go online to look for the meaning of a diagnostic trouble code. And you can also simply click on the error code selected so as to get an in-depth definition.
