* If the service lamp is on, you must provide service for the car. After service,you need to reset the driving mileage or driving time so that the service lamp turns off and the system enables the new service cycle.
* After changing engine oil or electric appliances that monitor oil life, you needto reset the service lamp.
2) Steering Angle Calibration: perform calibration for the Steering Angle Sensor
* To reset the steering angle, first find the relative zero point position for the car to drive in straight line. Taking this position as reference, the ECU can calculate the accurate angle for left and right steering.
* After replacing the steering angle position sensor, replacing steering mechanical parts (such as steering gearbox, steering column, end tie rod, steering knuckle), performing four-wheel alignment, or recovering car body, you must reset the steering angle.
3) Electronic Parking Brake Reset: When the brake pad is used to a certain thickness, it will be ground to the brake pad sensing line. At this time, the brake pad sensing wire will send a signal to the onboard computer, prompting to replace the brake pad. After replacing the brake pads, you need to reset the brake pads, otherwise the car will continue to alarm.
* If the brake pad wears the brake pad sense line, the brake pad sense linesends a signal sense line to the on-board computer to replace the brake pad.After replacing the brake pad, you must reset the brake pad. Otherwise, the car alarms.

I am satisfied with the product,for it could do what I want and respond me quickly and accurately.I bought it for more than one month,to now, it could do every problem which I meet.
Great functionality for the price with a ton of vehicle coverage. I've primarily used it on US brand cars and have been very impressed with it. So far all the PIDs seem to be accurate and the special functions and bidirectional control all seem to work. Item arrived fast and with everything nicely packaged and scan tool itself was at a 88% charge which is more then enough to get it set up an ready to use.
The battery seems to have an long life depending on screen brightness and the charger supplied seems to charge slowly which in my opinion is great to preserve the overall life span of the battery.
I have owned many Launch tools and love them.I lost the connector and contacted Kingbolen to get a replacement.Betty was very helpful and I got the new connector.Had issues with memory and she advised me to reset and install X431 app again. It worked great after that.I am about to buy the Diagun IV again.The one I own now is almost 3 years old.I like this V but it is larger and no slot for the connector.
Tough to beat for the money. Fully featured, 1 year software updates. First rate! Support is excellent, including real-time with facebook messenger. I am very pleased with the quality of everything, including built on a Lenovo Tab 4 8 Android tablet.
Excellent product , this has bidirectional controls to cover every module I've come across so far. The memory for recording diagnostic runs seems excellent on the Lenovo tab4 this is loaded on. Customer service was excellent when I had a problem recovering a lost password.
