OBD-2 Troubleshooter


The OBD-2 Troubleshooter Software is a full diagnostic computer program that guides you through the diagnostics process. The software’s diagnostics approach is that of a logical and sequential algorithm (step-by-step procedure).

It follows the same basic format that the ECM does when running the monitors. The OBD-2 Troubleshooter is organized in a 3 step process, with sub-steps. The actual software guides you in the right direction. To be used in conjunction with your OBD-2 Generic scanner, it is a guided interactive program. The software covers all you'll ever need during an OBD-2 repair.
