How To Use A OBD2 Scanner Guide
The car guy here, Jake, and today I want to talk about obd2 scanners these scanners can be a really great tool when diagnosing all different kinds of stuff on your car they come in a few different versions you can get a wired one that you plug into your obd2 reader and then you have a laptop you get the plug-in via USB they also have Wi-Fi and they have Bluetooth versions I chose a Bluetooth version that I just pair with my tablet I find that to be the easiest you will work with a phone but honestly it’s a really small screen to see so I like having this because you can have a bunch of different dials on the screen and still be able to read them another great benefit to the wireless is you can use it while you’re driving it will show you live updates of all different kinds of statistics on your car and you don’t have to have a wire obviously by your feet which just isn’t safe to get it connected all you have to do is just find your obd2 port and generally speaking it’s going to be in the driver side foot well it’s usually underneath the dash by the pedals or by the steering column and occasionally you’ll see it in some cars it’ll be in the glove box or somewhere in the center console but it’s just a little port you plug it in make sure your car’s off plug it in and then turn it to the on position and then you can link it up to your app my particular scanner is one called an obd-ii link and it’s from a company called scan tool I bought it this is in a promotional article I just really enjoy it and want to show you how to use it but if you are interested in it or taking a look at it it’s just in the link below now I’ll show you the app here really if you just go to your Play Store or App Store whatever it is and download the obd link app it’s right here and once the actual device is plugged in you just have to turn it into the on position whatever car you have it in and hit connect this is of course after if you have Bluetooth you need to have paired it with the actual tablet or phone and if you have Wi-Fi you need to add it to the Wi-Fi to make sure that it’s connected to the actual device so now that it’s connected you can do a whole bunch of different stuff in here starting with most importantly your Diagnostics now if you click on Diagnostics and you have a service engine soon or a check engine light on in your car this will actually show you what the code is right now as you can see I’m very grateful to not have any codes on my Xterra but I’m going to go and I’ll show you what it looks like anyways I took a screenshot from before this here is what it looks like when you have actual codes now it shows you the actual code so would be p0 for 1 would be the code that it’s throwing and then it gives you a short description you can also click on them and it will search for what that means honestly I don’t use that feature I just go to a browser and I will search p0 for one you know Nissan or Audi or whatever car you’re using it on you would search that code and then the manufacturer and generally you get a really quick answer in little more detail as to what that actually means now back in the app you can actually do like map tracking you can use the GPS on your device and it will do like a trailer where your car went you can look at logs so you can actually while you’re driving leave it running and it will track things like you know at the mass air flow intake the miles per gallon there are PM’s all the forces all of that but what’s really nice is you have a live dashboard so in live dashboard you can put in all kinds of different stuff so for instance on my screen let’s see what I have here I have the miles per gallon all right that’s pretty cool it’s just instant fuel economy it’s especially nice for cars that don’t have it the actual app will calculate it based on the collect the collection of information and it will give you a calculated miles per gallon things like torque that’s pretty neat mass airflow sensor tells you how much air it’s taking in engine temp I used engine temp a whole ton especially when diagnosing the overheating issue on the Xterra I use that a lot because I wanted to know the dial and the dash really isn’t all that great it doesn’t give you a whole bunch of specificity so to speak doesn’t actually say what the temperature is so in here I was able to tell that the car was getting pretty hot and the me wasn’t really showing me that it was getting pretty hot so really cool tool nice to have that your battery voltage that’s another one if you’re having alternator issues you can easily find that out by looking at this dashboard and then your fuel rate that’s fine as well now I’ll show you how these update live when you turn on your car so if I just flip on the car you’ll see instantly it’s tracking the RPMs you can see that it’s grabbing the temperature that you’ll see that will go up as it time goes on tells me my mass airflow and my fuel rate now also you can look at throttle body issues so for instance my rpm you see that it’s fluctuating a lot but it’s not outside of the normal fluctuation based on you know the manuals and what they say if it was fluctuating really high so let’s say it was going from 1500 to 800 I mean obviously you’ll know that just by driving it but it’s good to have solid data and you’ll be able to see those trends so this is actually only one dashboard so you could take this dashboard and move it over you can have an entirely separate set of data on multiple dashboards so you can have probably I don’t know as many pages as you want really this is obviously if we had a turbo booster which we don’t have so it’s a nice way to just go in take a look at the different types of staff inside your car well that’s it I just wanted to show you the tool that I use to help diagnose all my cars and if you were thinking about getting one
