OBDCheck BT12

  • Engine Diagnostics: read check engine light error codes (DTCs) and get code definitions, so you can quickly find out what’s wrong with your car when the CEL/ MIL turns on.
  • Battery Tester: check the health condition by providing voltage, CCA, SOH and SOS readings for all types of 12V lead acid batteries (300-2000CCA), including Regular Flooded, AGM Flat Plate, AGM Spiral, GEL and EFB.
  • Enhanced OBD2 Functions: show real time sensor readings (SAE PIDs); read freeze frame data; retrieve I/M Readiness which lets you know whether your vehicle will pass SMOG CHECK or not; read vehicle information like VIN.
  • Universal Vehicle Coverage: Works with OBD2 / EOBD compliant cars and light trucks (domestic and imported, since year 1996 in the US, 1998 in Canada – 1998, 2001 gas & 2004 diesel in EU, etc.).

The device works with OBD II compliant vehicles (year 96 or newer in the US). It does NOT work with OBD I vehicles. For OBD II compliant vehicles, there should be a 16 pin DLC (Diagnostic Link Connector) usually under the dash or behind ashtray AND a note on a sticker or nameplate under the hood: “OBD II compliant/certified”.

It reads check engine light trouble codes (sometimes called service engine soon).

No, it does not read or reset these. Only supports check engine light.

Check the cigar fuse of your vehicle and try on another vehicle to see if the OBD connector is in good condition.

Make sure your vehicle is OBD2 compliant, the device is plugged in well and the ignition is at ON. Also start the vehicle to try again. Try it on another vehicle to see if the device is defective or incompatible with your vehicle.

First check if you have any other dash lights on. Sometimes fault from other systems will also cause the check engine light on. Or it’s a manufacturer-specific code that is not in the code library of the device.

Please note that not all codes can be cleared in this way. For some codes (especially confirmed or permanent), if the problem causing the code hasn’t been fixed, it won’t be cleared or it may be cleared, but will come back again right away. We usually suggest that you first use the code to check your car and fix the problems.

Not all vehicles support all the OBD II modes (depends on the car manufacturer).
