The ICarScan Launch software is not as intuitive as one would think. Where do you go in the menu to reset the service intervals? Do you know if it will reset brake pad warning? My pads are fine-if so, do you know where that reset is?
The brake pad warning is automatically reset when you have a working warning sensor. ONCE triggered the sensor MUST BE REPLACED to turn the light off. It is worn through by the brake rotor when the pad backing gets close to the rotor. Your pads may be fine – but if the light is on – at least one sensor isn’t. The sensors are usually replaced with pads – they’re difficult to remove intact once the pads have some heat/time on them, so replacement is considered SOP.
I’m not sure how intuitive you would think the software should be – I personally find it easier to use than the Durametric. The only annoying thing I find is the action of your phones (Android phones) back button is inconsistent. But that’s true for almost any Android app or website, so nothing new there. At least this asks you if you’re sure you want to exit the program before doing it, and reminds you to take the OBD-II dongle when you’re done.
I’ll have to take a look at where the reset functions are for service reminders – I seem to recall them being fairly high up in the menu hierarchy, not difficult to find.
I recommend that you buy icarscan on Obd2 tool website. They are cheap, shipping is fast, and after-sales service is also very good. I have been using it for a year and there is no problem with the quality of the product.
