Why doesn't it scan?


usually you need to configure the reader to tell it what kind of barcodes you want it to read and how to interpret & output the codes to your computer (whether you need prefix or suffixes to your codes( for automation))

the user manual for the reader has some bar codes to configure the settings for the scanner.

ABS light is on but scan tool does not pick up an error code


Is it a code reader or a scan tool ,there is a difference ! An some will just read OBD codes from engine control module . You need to take it to someone who's scan tool can check all modules on the vehicle . Then again in some situations the factory scan tool will only work !

Code reader I cant get it to work


What you trying to read different systems require different readers. Abs one type, SRS another type and obd another. Make sure your ignition is turned to run but not start. I have several scanners and scan lots of vehicles. Get back to me if you need more help

Et1505an code reader comes up with link error every time i try to scan my 04 f-150 is it the scanner or my truck if it is my truck what is the cause. How would I fix it ?


The only way to find out if it is the code reader or the truck is to plug in another code reader or scan tool and see if it gives you the same results (try this first).

NOTE: Generic OBD code readers will operate ONLY on the Class 2 data link. A true scan tool will operate on BOTH the Class 2 and the UART lines. Accessing the onboard computer system with a scan tool may give you a fault code that indicates that the Class 2 circuits may be malfunctioning.

To diagnose onboard computer network communications malfunctions, the proper equipment that can communicate with the ENTIRE network must be used. Please note that generic OBD code readers cannot perform this function.

I used a toptak TP 110 code scanner to scan my 2001 toyota solara after several tries I continually get an error code each time. To check the operation of the code reader I tried it on a different vehicle...


you are facing the protocol problem, imports uses a diferent CAN interface, if your scan tool is not capable wont read it. try going to an auto part they're scan it for free

If you have the anti-theft code (it's like a business card attached were you find the code and direction) just follow the directions to enter the code but if you don’t have it, here is a link to get it

If you enter the wrong thing 3 times I think your radio is useless
  • Press SCAN and AUTO.M until bars are displayed.
  • While the bars are displayed, input the code number by pressing the channel preset buttons 1, 2, 3, and 4. Press 1 for the first digit, 2 for the second, 3 for the third, and 4 for the last. If you number is 2547, press 1 three times, 2 six times, 3 five times, and 4 eight times. If the dispay goes off while inputing, begin from step 1.
  • Press SCAN and AUTO.M approximately 2 seconds and 'code' is displayed. 'code' will flash for 5 seconds, then disappear to indicate that the system is operable. If 'Err' appears, begin from step 1.

  • !CAUTION: Three consecutive errors will activate the antitheft system, and the audio unit will be completely inoperable and 'Err' will flash. When this happens, the unit must be replaced by an Authouized Mazda Dealer at the owner's expense. Do not allow unauthorized persons to attempt to input a code number.
