The OBDCheck Elite is a high cost-effective car OBD2 scanner for DIYers as well as a great upgrade from the basic car code reader when the check engine light comes on. This plug-and-play OBD2 scanner features full OBD2 modes support and battery check for solving engine problems and monitoring battery health.

  • Read and erase generic (P0, P2, P3, and U0), manufacturer specific (P1, P3, and U1) codes, and pending codes.
  • Displays DTC definitions and help determine the cause of the Check Engine Light (MIL), and reset the light.
  • View freeze frame data and read live PCM sensor data stream by graphic or chart.
  • I/M Readiness to test the car’s emission control systems (status of emissions monitors).
  • Check battery health condition.
  • Works with OBD II / EOBD compliant cars, SUVs, MPVs, mini vans and light trucks since year 1996 in the US (domestic and imported).
  • Supported protocols: KWP2000, ISO9141, J1850 VPW, J1850 PWM, and CAN.
  • Free lifetime software update (via windows PC).

1. The OBDCheck Elite is designed to read check engine information which is part of OBD II standards, and it will not read non-OBD II systems (for example ABS/ airbag/ body control/ TPMS/ oil service light,etc.).
2. Not all features/modes are available on a vehicle; it depends on the deployment of the manufacturer.


Universal OBD II Vehicle Coverage: Works with OBD2 / EOBD compliant cars and light trucks (since year 1996 in the US, 1998 in Canada – 1998, 2001 gas & 2004 diesel in EU, etc.). Supports all five OBD-II protocols: CAN, KWP2000, ISO9141-2, J1850 VPW and J1850 PWM.

Professional Functions: read and erase engine pending, stored and permanent error codes and show the definitions; reset check engine light (CEL, SES or MIL); Live data reading; Misfire and Evaporation check; O2 sensor test; VIN reading, etc. I/M Readiness lets you know whether your vehicle will pass SMOG CHECK or not.

Battery Check: quickly read the battery voltage and indicate the battery health status: good or bad or need to be charged or replaced.

Unique Features: when you see a question mark “?” beside a trouble code or live reading, please press “HELP” button to get more detailed information such as description, causes and troubleshooting tips to help you diagnose your car.

Easy To Use: 2.4’’ color screen, built-in DTC database and multilingual, intuitive interface plus a storage case for easy carrying.



User Manual

Elite Software Update Program


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).

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).
