What is a Drive Cycle in OBD-II?

Drive Cycles are a warm up sequence that the vehicle must complete to allow conditions for all of the onboard tests.  When codes are cleared, so are diagnostic results, this means that if you are going for an emissions test and you have a fault code, if you clear the code just before the test, there will be not only a Distance since DTC Cleared setting, but your vehicle will not have ran through several drive cycles which are required and your vehicle will fail by default.

There is a flaw in the NEXIQ USB Link 2 driver installer that causes any J1534 compliant software to look in the “WINDOWS” folder for the dll files, if your windows folder is called WinXP, Win7, WINNT or any other name, PF-Diagnose is fine but the Nexiq driver will fail to load.  This is known by Nexiq and is to be corrected in the latest driver install, I recommend you install the latest Nexiq drivers or .contact Nexiq.  This is a Nexiq problem.  Pocketfleet is not a Nexiq Distributor. if you have one of our approved adapters by DG Technologies, you will not have this issue.

There are 2 main scan tools used for GM vehicles, the GM Tech II handheld and the MDI-2 GDS2 laptop based system. From 1992 to 2009 + certain newer vehicles,  GM vehicles use the Tech 2 handheld scan tool.The Tech 2 is the same scan tool as is used also for GM, Saab,
Izusu, Suzuki and Saturn including the Saturn Astra (Opel import).

The Tech 2 scan tool simply uses different 32 MB software cards which are removable and switchable. We are lucky it is so versatile. Extra memory cards which cost an average of $449.00 allow us to expand our diagnostic capabilities really cheaply.

The automotive diagnostic equipment Tech 2 scan tool is also used for reflashing GM vehicles.It uses a serial adapter with a network cable to connect the tech 2 to your laptop. NOTE  a serial adapter is used on the laptops 9 pin serial port.DO NOT try to connect the tech 2 directly to your laptop with just a network cable. IT WON”T WORK.

Using the Launch X431 V (X431 Pro) OBD 2 is bound to save the user from several incompatibility hustles usually seen with some tools. With the addition of the upcoming Indian car models, you can be assured of scanning you cheap cars. Leaving the cost aside, this is a tool worth looking at. However, the skyrocketing cost may not be so nice to an average income earner, go round and choose what may be convenient.

For Indian market LAUNCH company has designed LAUNCH X431 PRO not X431 V. But there are many unauthorized trader in Indian market who is promoting Launch X431 V as a global version.er service support is the most important since with every car manufacturer scanning procedure will change system of the car will change. For any scanner service support is the most important since even though technician has bought most expensive and most advance scanner but if does not know procedure to use it then even the most advance car scanner is of no use.

Why should buy Launch X431 V?

The likely benefits seen with the Bluetooth X431 V (X431 Pro) Wi-Fi Bluetooth Full System Android Scanpad include some of the fallowing;

Fast and efficient data coding– with All the hallmarks of a fast device, the mechanic and the driver are at peace in getting fast data coding and repairs. This reduces the repair time and the amount of money likely spent on the other repair processes.

Multilingual– the best obd2 scanner has the interface covering several universal languages. The mechanic needs no effort in trying to get translations in as far as the code meanings and repair formulas are concerned.

Wide compatibility– Covering several European and Asian cars, the device has what it takes to be used globally. The addition of the Indian car models makes its use even more widespread.

I have a Porsche PIWIS clone and it’s works fine. It has most piwis tester 2 functionality, can reset error codes, code modules, read current module data, update module firmware etc. They generally can’t do SCN coding (i.e. the coding required when a new control module is installed to lock it to VIN), key programming, or security coding in general – well not without paying additional ‘one-time’ use fees.

Developer mode is a special Piwis software that allow a lot of advanced coding normally reserved only to Factory. With this function you will have a tool that can do more than software of official Porsche Dealer. For example, you can reprogram all ECUs completely offline.Engineer Mode  software is able to work with offline programming for almost all modules, also you can access special functions with it.
