Using compatible software, you can use this to access data from your car right on your computer screen. You can view live data straight from your vehicle’s engine. You will have full access to your car’s diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) and see their full definitions as well as the location and type of problem, so you won’t have to spend time looking up the code’s meaning. You can also clear all generic and some manufacturer specific DTC’s. You will also have access to your vehicle’s OBDII Freeze Frame data (which is captured when the vehicle’s on board computer detects problems).
