Product Name: V-Checker OBD2 Scanner For V101
Part No.: F107
Net Weight: 0.4KG
If your car's Check Engine Light is on, you need this device.
V-Checker is a handy device for reading and erasing trouble code in
your vehicles. It can also display live data for your vehicle. It
is small in size, robust in design, competitive in price and easy
to use. This is a stand alone unit, it does not need a laptop
computer to operate.
By simply connecting V-Checker with the diagnostic socket, the user
will be able to read the trouble code. The trouble code description
will be displayed directly on the screen, no need for search it in
the user's manual. Each code will be continuously displayed until
the [PREVIOUS] or [NEXT] key is pressed. This is a important
advantage to compare with the old type trouble code reading tools.

1.Turn off the ignition switch. Find the 16pin OBD2 diagnostic
connector and plug into the V-checker. When the "Press any key to
start diagnosis" message is displayed, turn on the ignition switch
and press any key to continue.
2.The V-CHECK will auto scan which protocol is used by the vehicle.
3.After scanning, the screen will display the test mode selection
menu. Press  or  to select the test mode you want to use.

One scanner with 16PIN Extension Cable
Even if you don't repair the vehicle yourself, knowing the
Diagnostic Trouble Code number before taking the vehicle in for
repair the less likely you will be ripped off. Once the vehicle is
repaired, the Diagnostic Trouble Code(s) can be erased and the
Check Engine light extinguished using this scan tool.
In area that requires a smog test, an illuminated Check Engine
light fails the emission test, even if the repaired vehicle might
otherwise pass inspection. This OBD II Scan Tool extinguishes the
Check Engine light.
Another highly useful application for the scan tool is purchasing
used vehicles. Used vehicles can have all sorts of expensive
mechanical or electrical problems. Since our scanner is a portable
device, the buyer, can connect the scan tool to the vehicle and in
a few seconds determine if the vehicle has detected a problem.
Remember, not all Diagnostic Trouble Codes illuminate the Check
Engine light and a scan tool are the only way to obtain the
Does My Car Have OBD-II?
All cars and light trucks built and sold in the United States after
January 1, 1996 were required to be OBD II equipped. In general,
this means all 1996 model year cars and light trucks are compliant,
even if built in late 1995.
Two factors will show if your vehicle is definitely OBD II
1) There will be an OBD II connector as shown below, and
2) There will be a note on a sticker or nameplate under the hood:
"OBD II compliant".
Where is the connector located?
The connector must be located within three feet of the driver and
must not require any tools to be revealed. Look under the dash and
The Three Flavors of OBD II
While the parameters, or readings, required by OBD II regulations
are uniform, the auto manufacturers had some latitude in the
communications protocol they used to transmit those readings to
scanners. Naturally, each felt they had the one true way, so I have
three different OBD II communications protocols in use.
The big scanner consoles costing thousands of dollars include the
decoding software and firmware for all three protocols in their
units, making them universal. Less expensive units, for home or
small shop use, are usually customized for a specific
communications protocol. Be sure the scanner you are using suits
the protocol of your car.
What Communications Protocol does my vehicle use?
As a rule of thumb, GM cars and light trucks use SAE J1850 VPW
(Variable Pulse Width Modulation). Chrysler products and all
European and most Asian imports use ISO 9141 circuitry. Fords use
SAE J1850 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) communication patterns.
There are some variations among captive imports such as the
Cadillac Catera, a German Opel derivative, which uses the European
ISO 9141 protocol.
On 1996 and later vehicles, you can tell which protocol is used by
examining the OBD II connector:
J1850 VPW--The connector should have metallic contacts in pins 2,
4, 5, and 16, but not 10.
ISO 9141-2--The connector should have metallic contacts in pins 4,
5, 7, 15, and 16.
J1850 PWM--The connector should have metallic contacts in pins 2,
4, 5, 10, and 16.
If your vehicle has this style connector, but doesn't have these
pins populated, you probably have a pre-OBDII vehicle. To add some
confusion, even having the connector with the contacts shown above
is not a guarantee of OBD II compliance. This style connector has
been seen on some pre-1996 vehicles which were not OBD II
