The Diagnostic Functions Of The C110 Creator

The creator C110 is an vehicle code reader tool,and its main functions are reading trouble codes, clearing trouble codes, reading datastream, the component testing, clearing adaption and reading the vehicle information. In this article,we’ll share the diagnostic functions.

When there occurs the emission-related fault,the trouble codes would cause the control module to illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp.And users can do the function of reading trouble codes with the key on and the engine off or with the key on and the engine running.On the screen of the C100 creator,you can use the UP/DOWN buttons to choose the “Read Trouble Code” from the diagnostic menu and click “OK”,and the C110 would communicate with the vehicle and read out the trouble codes.If the vehicle doesn’t have a diagnostic trouble code,the code reader tool will display “No Trouble Code” and wait several seconds,it will return to the diagnostic menu.

The function of clearing trouble codes should be done with the key on and the engine off.On the diagnostic menu,there will have an option of “Clear Trouble Code”,click it and it would be done automatically.When the trouble codes are cleared,the message of “Fault codes is erased” will displayed on the screen.When the trouble codes are not cleared,there will show a message of “Erase Failure.Turn Key On With Engine Off”,then do as it says.

The function of “Read Datastream” can help users view the live or real time data of the vehicle’s computer modules.The same,there has an option for users to choose this function on the diagnostic menu,just choose it to get more options.Users can use the button “Up/Down” to select datastream and use the button “Left/Right” for page up and page down. Users can enter the graph mode by clicking the button of “GRAPH”.

The function of “Component Testing” can initiate component test for the vehicle.The C110 creator itself can not do the component test,but commands the control units to start the test.And the function of “Clear Adaptation” can clear the driver’s driving habits that stored in the control module.

The last main function of “Information” is actually display the vechile’s ECU information which includes software version, hardware version, diagnostic index, pro. date and part number ECT.The retrieved vehicle information will show on the screen of C110.

Introduction Of OBDII

According to Wikipedia,On-board diagnostics(OBD) is an?automotive?term referring to a vehicle’s self-diagnostic and reporting capability. OBD systems give the vehicle owner or repair technician access to the status of the various vehicle sub-systems. The amount of diagnostic information available via OBD has varied widely since its introduction in the early 1980s’ versions of on-board vehicle computers. Early versions of OBD would simply illuminate a malfunction indicator light or “idiot light” if a problem was detected but would not provide any information as to the nature of the problem. Modern OBD implementations use a standardized digital communications port to provide real-time data in addition to a standardized series of?diagnostic trouble codes, or DTCs, which allow one to rapidly identify and remedy malfunctions within the vehicle.

OBD systems are exist in majority cars and light trucks on the road nowadays. During the 70’s and early 1980’s, manufacturers started using electronic means to control engine functions and diagnose engine problems. This was primarily to meet EPA emission standards. Through the years,OBD systems have become more sophisticated.

OBD-II, a new standard introduced in the mid 90’s, provides almost complete engine control and also monitors parts of the chassis, body and accessory devices, as well as the diagnostic control network of the car.

OBD-II is an improvement over OBD-I in both capability and standardization. The OBD-II standard specifies the type of diagnostic connector and its pinout, the electrical signalling protocols available, and the messaging format. It also provides a candidate list of vehicle parameters to monitor along with how to encode the data for each. There is a pin in the connector that provides power for the scan tool from the vehicle battery, which eliminates the need to connect a scan tool to a power source separately. However, some technicians might still connect the scan tool to an auxiliary power source to protect data in the unusual event that a vehicle experiences a loss of electrical power due to a malfunction. Finally, the OBD-II standard provides an extensible list of DTCs. As a result of this standardization, a single device can query the on-board computer(s) in any vehicle. This OBD-II came in two models OBD-IIA and OBD-IIB. OBD-II standardization was prompted by emissions requirements, and though only emission-related codes and data are required to be transmitted through it, most manufacturers have made the OBD-II?Data Link Connector?the only one in the vehicle through which all systems are diagnosed and programmed. OBD-II Diagnostic Trouble Codes are 4-digit, preceded by a letter: P for engine and transmission (powertrain), B for body, C for chassis, and U for network.

And we have several kinds of OBDII scanner,if you are intrested in that,you can contact us .
