Limit 3 per customer


Brand Website: Think Car

THINKOBD 500, featuring full 9 modes of OBD2 functions, DTC Lookup, 2.8'' LCD color display. It's truly an excellent OBD2 code reader that you should keep in your cars as standard equipment. It enables DIYers and mechanics to do smog tests and solve basic engine and emission-related problems.

  • Read Codes: Read the fault code existing in the current ECU. (Application: Generally, the car instrument has a fault light on, and the current fault code can be read.)
  • Clear Codes: Delete the fault code in the current ECU. (Application: Carry out this function after the car trouble is removed, the trouble light goes out. If the current fault cannot be cleared, perform this function after maintenance is required.)
  • Live Data: Read and display the real-time operating data and parameters of the car ECU. (Application: By observing these real-time data streams, maintenance technicians can gain insight into the overall performance of the vehicle and provide guidance for vehicle maintenance.)
  • Freeze Frame: When the vehicle has a fault, a fault code will be generated, and the freeze-frame can be used to view the data of the vehicle at the moment when the fault code is generated. (Application: The maintenance technician judges the fault location based on the relevant data.)
  • I/M Readiness: This shows whether the various emissions-related systems on the vehicle are operating properly and are ready for inspection and maintenance testing.
  • O2 Sensor Test: The O2 sensor test function allows you to retrieve and view the O2 sensor monitor test results from the vehicle's onboard computer to view the most recently completed test.
  • On-Board Monitor Test: This function can be used to read the on-board diagnostic monitoring test results of a specific component/system.
  • EVAP Test: The EVAP test function allows you to initiate a leak test of the vehicle's EVAP system. This tool does not perform a leak test, but sends a signal to the vehicle's on-board computer to initiate the test. The vehicle manufacturer determines the standards and methods for stopping the test after the test has started. Before using the system test function, please refer to the vehicle's maintenance manual to determine the process required to stop the test.
