Hint

: if the display shows unable to connect to vehicle when you have connected the cable of the obd ii scan tool or the hand–held tester to the dlc3, turned the ignition switch on and operated the scan tool, there is a problem on the vehicle side or tool side.

  • If the communication is normal when the tool is connected to another vehicle, inspect the dlc3 on the original vehicle.
  • If the communication is still impossible when the tool is connected to another vehicle, the problem is probably in the tool itself, so consult the service department listed in the tool’s instruction manual.

Battery voltage: 11 to 14 v

If voltage is below 11 v, recharge the battery before proceeding.
