Connects In Seconds
The cable is detachable at the ScanGauge II and can be connected on
the back or side of the unit. Once connected to your vehicles OBDII
port, the ScanGaugeII automatically negotiates communications with your
cars computer - It's that easy!
Fits Almost Anywhere
The compact size of the ScanGaugeII allows you to mount just about
anywhere. It's so small, you can even slip it into your pocket and take
it with you.
The dimensions of the ScanGaugeII are 4.8" wide by 1.5" high by
1.0" deep. The cord from the diagnostic connector to the control/display
is 6' long and about 0.2" in diameter.
Built-In Scan Tool
The ScanGauge II can check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and
if found, can display how many there are and the Trouble Codes
themselves. Using the internet or repair manuals, these can be
translated to the failed component and repairs can be made.
Data captured when the Trouble Code was set can be recalled to
help troubleshoot the problems (was the temperature hot or cold, speed
high or low, etc). The ScanGauge II can be used to clear the trouble
codes and data which will turn off the warning (Check Engine, Service
Engine soon, etc) lamp.
Some states now require that vehicle self tests have been
completed since the codes were last cleared, before running emissions
checks. The ScanGauge reports this "Readiness".
- Reads Trouble Codes
- Reads Conditions that set the Trouble Code
- Clears Trouble Codes
- Turns off "Check Engine" light
- Tells you when vehicle is "Ready" to pass OBDII testing
- Make and store up to 10 rewritable special codes to send to the vehicle computer
- Ships with the latest version of X-Gauge
The ScanGauge II can display up to 4 of 12 possible gauges at one
time. The units of measure can be changed and the rate of update can be
increased or decreased.
- Fuel Economy
- Fuel Rate
- Battery Voltage
- Coolant Temperature
- Intake Air Temperature
- Engine Speed (RPM)
- Vehicle speed (MPH and KM/H)
- Manifold Pressure (not available on some vehicles)
- Engine Load
- Throttle Position
- Ignition Timing
- Open/Closed Loop
The CURRENT trip is restarted after the engine has been off for
more than 3 minutes. The TODAY trip is restarted after the vehicle has
not moved for 9 hours. The data from TODAY is moved to PREVIOUS DAY
when it is restarted. This way, you don't have to reset the trip
computers when you start a trip. There is also a TANK Trip which you
reset when you fill up the tank. It can provide you with "to empty"
data as well as other useful information. The information is available
anytime during the trip. The CURRENT trip can be reset. This is useful
for making fuel economy measurements at a steady speed.
The GAUGE mode can display instantaneous fuel economy, but small
variations in throttle, terrain or even wind will cause this to wander
around some. The CURRENT trip computer and its RESET capability can
smooth this out over a longer distance. A demonstration of how to do
this can be chosen below.
The TRIP modes in the ScanGauge II can be used to save gas.
Improved driving habits can improve fuel economy by up to 30% according
to a US Government source. The ScanGauge II lets you try different
driving techniques and routes and gives quick feedback on how they
affect fuel use.
