OBD-2 Scanner PID Repair
(An automotive repair series APP)
This APP is a unique piece of software meant to help you get the most out of your scan tool. Packed with information on all the scan tool parameters or PIDs. The APP allows you to choose the specific PID or parameter from a list. Here are the PIDs covered:
Number of DTCs, CODE that caused FF, FUEL STATUS, ENGINE LOAD, ECT (engine coolant temperature), FUEL TRIMS, FRP (fuel rail pressure),
MAP (Manifold Air Pressure), RPM (engine revolutions), VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor), Ignition Timing Advance), IAT (Intake Air Temperature), MAF (Mass Air Flow), TPS (Obsolute Throttle Position), Commanded Air Status, O2 Sensor Location, STFT (Lambda Fuel Trims),
OBD-2 Requirements, PTO/AUX INPUT STATUS, TIME SINCE ENGINE STARTED, DISTANCE TRAVELED WITH CEL ON, FUEL RAIL PRESSURE with MAP,
AFR (Air Fuel Ratio Sensor), Commanded EGR, EGR ERROR, Commanded EVAP PURGE, # WARM UPS SINCE CODE CLEARED, Fuel Level Input,
DISTANCE SINCE CODE WERE CLEARED, EVAP FUEL VAPOR PRESSURE, BARO (Barometric Pressure Sensor), AFR (Signal), CONVERTER TEMPERATURE,
MONITOR STATUS (ENABLED/COMPLETED), VOLTAGE POWER/ECM POWER, ABSOLUTE LOAD FACTOR, COMMANDED EQUIVALENCE RATIO, RELATIVE THROTTLE POSITION, AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE, ABSOLUTE THROTTLE POSITION B C D E F, (TAC) COMMANDED THROTTLE ACTUATOR, TIME RUN WITH CEL/MIL ON, TIME SINCE CODE CLEARED
Then once the PID is chosen you get an actual real-life description of the parameter and how you can use it. Keep scrolling through the list until you’re satisfied with the knowledge.
THEN…. you get even more….
There are three specific OBD-2 scan tool parameter buttons, the Video Helper, YouTube Helper and Audio Helper. These buttons work in conjunction with the PID that was chosen before. It is all automatic. By pressing the “Video Helper” button you get access to a set of PID specific videos dealing with your OBD-2 scanner parameter.
NOTE: The “Video Helper” button works with larger Tablet Displays and Phones. May not work on smaller phones. The “YouTube Helper” does work with most phones.
Then, if you’re not satisfied and depending on the display option that you have, you can go to the “YouTube Helper” button, which is geared to display one of our automotive video properties. All YouTube videos shown here are the property of the author, Mandy Concepcion – Automotive Diagnostics and Publishing and not from any other non-approved source. So the information is accurate and taken from our YouTube channel “ADPTraining”.
Finally, for those with extremely small phone resources you get an “Audio Helper” button, which only displays audio and meant for small memory devices. (note: this option is coming soon).
With the OBD-2 Scanner PID Repair APP you’re set to get the most out of your CODE-READER or scan tool.
