What can you do with
OBDCOM is a
complete diagnostic system for all your cars and trucks. Using your laptop
and OBDCOM, you can figure out why your car is
not running right, or why the check-engine light is on, and you can clear the
check-engine light. You can also view and log real-time sensor readings to collect
the information you need to solve more complex problems. OBDCOM also checks the
vehicle to see if it is ready for an emissions inspection.
||Read and clear
stored and pending error codes
OBDCOM reads all powertrain trouble codes, including manufacturer-specific ones. Error codes are translated into an english description so you don't
have to look it up. Having this information helps you make smart
decisions, whether repairing your car yourself, or bringing it to a
mechanic. You will have an idea what is wrong before going to a
mechanic, and avoid being ripped-off! If you do your own repairs,
you can avoid buying costly parts you don't really need.
||OBDCOM clears the
After reading out the error codes, you can use that information to fix
your car and turn off the check-engine light easily using OBDCOM. After fixing the
original cause of the problem, your car may still stay in "limp"
mode. In other words, it won't run right because it still
"remembers" the problem. Using OBDCOM to clear the errors and the
check-engine light restores the car to normal operation after carrying out
you if the car is ready for EMISSIONS TESTING
Before going to get the car inspected, you can check it with OBDCOM to
see if the "readyness" is all clear for the emissions test!

The sensors your engine computer uses to make the car run properly can
be monitored in real time on your computer screen either as raw numbers,
graphs, or gauges. There are many uses for this live sensor
- You can use
this data to see if a performance modification you have made is
having any effect. For example, after installing a cold air
intake system, you can monitor the intake air temperature. After
switching to a free-flowing air filter, you can check to see if your
maximum airflow has in fact increased. You can do this by
setting-up digital or analog gauges or graphs on the computer screen
and viewing the effect of your mods while the vehicle is driven.
All of these displays are just a few clicks away.
- This data also
helps you solve problems, find out why your car is not running
right, and zero in on the exact cause of a problem. Using the
different types of displays and logging the data while the car is operated in different conditions can
help you pinpoint the information you need to solve rough-running,
stalling, poor performance, or poor fuel economy, overheating, or
whatever other symptoms your car may have.
