Launch X431 CRP429C Smart & Manual Diagnostic Guide

uobdii | 17 April, 2019 23:15

Here obd2 share the guide on how to use Launch X431 CRP429C smart & manual diagnosis function.

Launch CRP429C Smart Diagnosis:
After connection, turn the ignition key on and the system enters auto-detect mode.
Note: To detect more and accurate VINs, a stable network connection is highly recommended for this function.
CAUTION: Don’t connect or disconnect any test equipment with ignition on or engine running.
A. Once the system successfully obtains the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) information of the currently identified vehicle, it will continue scanning the vehicle systems. After the scanning is complete, a diagnostic report will be automatically generated and sent to your email box (if bound).
B. If the tool failed to access the VIN information, the screen will display as below:


Input the VIN, and tap “OK”, the system will automatically identify the vehicle
model. If the vehicle VIN is successfully decoded, it will perform autodiagnosis
until a diagnostic report is automatically output. Otherwise it will
enter manual diagnosis mode.
• The most recognizable location for this number is in the top left corner on the
vehicle’s dashboard. Other locations include the driver’s door or post, and the
firewall under the hood.
• In general, vehicle identification numbers are standardized - all contain 17
characters. VIN characters may be capital letters A through Z and numbers
1 through 0; however, the letters I, O and Q are never used in order to avoid
mistakes of misreading. No signs or spaces are allowed in the VIN.

Launch CRP429C Manual Diagnosis
If the tool can not obtain the VIN information, you can also perform vehicle
diagnosis manually. In this mode, you need to execute the menu-driven
command and then follow the on-screen instruction to proceed.
• Before diagnosing, please make sure the diagnostic program corresponding to certain vehicle model has been installed on your CRP429C.
• For vehicles manufactured by different vendors, it is possible that it has different
diagnostic menus. For details, please follow the instructions on the screen to proceed.Refer to the flowchart illustrated as below to diagnose a vehicle manually:


Take Demo as an example to demonstrate how to diagnose a vehicle.
1). Select diagnostic software version: Tap the “DEMO” to go to Step 2.


2). Select test item: Select the desired test item to proceed.

BMW E/F Scanner Read BMW CAS1-CAS3+ ISN Code Operation Guide

uobdii | 13 February, 2019 21:52

Here I want to share the guide on how to use BMW E/F scanner II to read out BMW CAS1-CAS3+ ISN code.

And for more information please visit BMW E/F Scanner  blog


BMW E/F Scanner Interface:
V2018.12 BMW E/F Scanner II Full Version (Recommend)
2013.07V E/F SCANNER For BMW

The BMW Explorer program has a possibility of reading a code of synchronization of ISN (all versions of CAS1 CAS2 CAS3 CAS3+).
Go to the CAS control unit, “Additional functions”, “Reading ISN”
In the opened window ISN will be displayed.
If the machine is equipped with the EWS3 system where 2 bytes of the constant part and the change are used, it will be displayed in the window 2 bytes of ISN DME (the upper 3 windows will be empty), if necessary they can be changed.

If the machine uses the EWS4 system, then 16 bytes of constant synchronization are used and there is no variable part.
Also after 2006, CAS3 uses an anti-theft code for EGS
If there is an EWS3 system in the car, then this code is the same with the engine control unit, if the machine already has an EWS4 system, then EGS uses separate 2 bytes
The program is in place of the engine ISN, it will display the gearbox code .. as in the picture below
