Car model and year: 2010 Chevrolet Express Passenger LS
Purpose: clear fault codes, read data stream, perform actuation test, special function etc
Thinkdiag Bluetooth OBD2 full-system code scanner
All right, just finished downloading the ThinkDiag app software of Chevrolet.
I haven’t hit any buttons yet, it just says reading for data, please wait.
Here we go, familiar screens, cool.
Let’s see what a health report looks like first.
It’s going to be getting self-report now.
We definitely have some codes here.
Click on the button “DTC(3)” after “Engine Control Module (ECM)”.
Again, enter “Electronic Brake Control Module” -> Read fault code -> DTC display – it shows fault code.
Back again, tap ” ECM” and have the following functions incl. special functions, I/M System Information.
Go to Special functions and have: Crankshaft Position Variation Learn, Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Heater Learn, Idle Learn Reset, Oil life reset etc.
So they do have the ” Idle Learn Reset”, it is done key on engine off, make sure the engine fully warmed.
Okay, tap “Idle Learn Reset”, then “Ok”.
Reset commanded state none, we’re gonna do reset.
AddDS would be a data stream.
It allows me go back.
We clear the fault codes.
Lets’ verify it, click on “Read fault code”, have option” DTC display, additional DTC Information, Event data.”
No trouble code, system Normal!
Next, let’s go into data stream see how Thinkdiag does data
Let’s start this up here, turn key off, turn key on, give it a second so I waited throttle-body, does the open closed and then start it yeah, it should. Come right back down and it is already geez I wish I had a tachometer, so what you guys could follow along with me, but this thing was racing up pretty high before. Let’s see what let’s go into data stream, see how it does data.
Let’s choose “Desired idle speed” and “Engine Speed”.
Combine -> Ok
A nice feature like pinch and zoom anything like that, so you can change the scaling thereby pinching it this way and then bring it on the screen, can you scroll it that’s actually great..
Finally, it wins at Bi-directional control test.
I mean it could do more quick test here.
Back to BCM -> actuation test ->Interior lighting-> Courtesy lamp
Thinkdiag code reader is an affordable option in my option.
It is great tool for that you paid.
