Why do you get icarscan

Here is a brief introduction of special functions in the main menu and that under a model of ICarScan Launch.
1. Special function in the main menu
If users choose special functions in the main menu and select one, then users can perform this function for all models developed in the list.
For example, users go to Special Functions in the main menu for oil reset, they can reset oil for all cars listed there like BMW, Toyota, Honda and cannot go to diagnosis or others.
2.Special functions under a model
That is a special function like oil reset after users go to BMW Diagnostic Software.
For example, users go to BMW software, there must be lots of functions incl. Special Functions. Then, they can select oil reset for the BMW model.

Where do icarscan reset the service intervals?

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?

icarscan-5

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.

Error when Install the Launch icarscan EZdiag APP

Install the ICarScan VCI EZdiag APP, and when it is running, prompt: APP EZdiag stopped

icarscan-7

 

This is usually because the phone’s operating system is not compatible with the icarscan APP.

 

Customers need to provide:

 

For App versions, box Numbers, phone models and android versions, it’s best to record a video to locate the problem

 

According to the information provided by the customer, we will modify our APP to be compatible with the customer’s mobile system.
