Where to buy Launch CReader 9081 DIY scanner?

If you are interested in Launch CReader 9081 DIY scanner, but have no idea if it can do as what it claims, and even have no idea where to buy it, then I am sure this post on Launch CReader 9081 review will give you a guiding light.

launch-creader-9081-full-scanner(1)

Review 1:

Launch CReader 9081 is great for do-it-yourself mechanic or even professional technician. It’s quick and easy to diagnose and show the trouble codes.

I will suggest you read the quick start guide before use it. It helps you with the preparation you should to do to update the car manufacturer data. The manual shows how to upgrade and explains the step of upgrade in detail.

I really like the quick access buttons, with those buttons you can read the diagnostic trouble codes, clear the trouble codes, get helps and access to I/M readiness status more convenient.

Just connect the car and press the button, it can scan automatic.

I did some simple tests, and viewed the data on the 4 inch color display, including that car information, monitor status, freeze frame, etc. It helps me to know more about my car.

Review 2:

For a 2017 Chevy Colorado with the 2.8 duramax diesel.

brake bleeding, SAS etc… CReader 9081worked

DPF function, 02 sensor, evap, bi-directional funtions and other…didn’t work

Google “launch 9081 update” and it took me to a launchx431 website, where it took about 5 min to navigate and find the update screen.

Review 3:

06 Toyota Sienna manually program key OK with CReader 9081 , able to erase the old key from the memory and program the new one.

Review 4:

Shows you procedure on how to reset oil light. Pulls abs codes and engine and transmission codes.

Review 5:

CReader 9081 perfectly works on my 2015 Tiburon, the EPB, BMS,TPMS, SAS functions are all well. I am so surprised and happy with its key programming feature, it is really useful and special, I can erase the old key from the memory and program new one. Amazing!

Review 6:

CReader 9081 combined full OBD II functions with extra 11 modes of reset.

Review 7:

the Anti-theft matching function is a good solution to my concerns.

Review 8:

It has OBD full functions, and it can also read transmission, abs error code. I think the price is reasonable with these so many functions, very good!

Review 9:

Using Launch Creader 9081 to track dpf regen on my 2013 Chevy. Works very well once connected. It needs be upgraded before using.

Review 10:

Launch Creader 9081 read the code perfectly on my Nissan and I then quickly found the problem.

How to program SUBARU Forester Smart key all keys with K518 / X300?

SUBARU Forester Smart key all keys lost adapting with Lonsdor K518ISEOBDSTAR X300 DP, I80 key programmer.

Preface:

We all knows SUBARU spare parts is very expensive, all key lost will cost a lot, here we share the SUBARU Forester key

adapting method for all key lost.

Abstract:

SUBARU Smart key all key lost key adaption have two common methods:

  1. Disassemble the SMT Main ECU, Use AD900 programmer to write data into Toyota smart key, it can directly start the car, No need adapting on the car again, but must use AD smart key.
  2. Disassemble the SMT Main ECU, immobilizer(ESL/ELV), Write initialization data, then study the key on the car.

Here we share the second method, SUBARU Forester use 5290 smart key, Year 2013, No immobilizer, disassemble the SMT Main ECU and ELV Write initialization data and study the key.

Process:

  1. Get the ELV(below steer column), disassemble the ELV module, find the 8 PIN EEPROMon the circuit board, Model No. : 93c46.

Desoldering the 93c46, use programmer and adapter read the data, make a backup first then change the code shown as below picture.

-keep the Red marked code code the same, others all change to F, When dump revised, use programmer and adapter write back to 93c46 eeprom, and solder back to the circuit board.

  1. Disassemble the SMT Smart ECU(back side of the A column of the car), it’s appearance is the same as Toyota except the LOGO, disassemble the shell find the 8 PIN eeprom near the CPU, EEPROM Model No. : 93C86. Disassemble the 93c86, Write initialization data, assemble back to the car, if without error the dashboard could be light up.
  2. Use Key programmer add new keys directly. Use Lonsdor K518ISE, OBDSTAR X300 DP, or I80 key programmer, connect the car OBD interface, select SUBARU, then XV smart system, direct add new key, all down, after the keys added, no need sync, directly start the car.

Attach Lonsdor K518ISE package

lonsdor-k518ise-key-programmer(1)

and OBDSTAR X300 DP package

Launch X431 HD on Easydiag

We can use easydiag for Launch X431 HD heavy duty scanning. what we need is voltage converter. we need to convert 30v to 12v

this post from another site:-

A converter with 30 to 12 volts or a battery. I disassembled the cargo ECU. There a bunch of converters from 24 to 12 volts and the standard CAN and KL chips are powered by 12 volts. And for KL you need to select a capacitor (taking into account the passenger cars 4700 pF) for freight you need somewhere 6800- 8000 pF. Ie additional 2000-2500 pf (between the K-line and ground) is a simple KL-adapter, but that’s what the JV700 needs to look at. Concerning the “X431 HD Heavy Duty Box HD Adapter” (this is as an add-on) it can work on this program, but there must be another account for the PRO3 adapter. It’s easier to buy a dolphin or a car.

from someone’s post:-

Can. But you need a table then everything is equal. There is nothing complicated. A pulser, a suppressor of 14-15 volts. Optocoupler 4 pieces or 2 dual pair of resistors per 10k and a pair for 1k and two trunks approximately … It is possible and without optocouplers on 4 trunks and to protect 2 more suppresses

new drawing from post

you can put a mini voltmeter to a heap.

How to choose a GM Tech 2 alternative on GM corvette

Have GM corvette, recently ran into an issue where I wanted to replace my aftermarket pioneer (didn’t like it and much prefer my smart phone) with a stock unit. Found a cheap OEM unit on eBay. After install, i realized that factory head units are tied to the original cars VIN. No problem, I’ll pay the dealership to fix the issue. Only problem they outright say they CANNOT guarantee they can fix the locked status of my radio and i’d still have to pay. As an IT/Network technician, i couldn’t imagine telling people i can’t guarantee I can fix your network or pc problems, but you still owe me full price plus tax.

Enter the VXDIAG VCX Nano for GM scanner. I was looking into clone tech II’s for the past couple weeks and stumbled onto this gem. There is very little info on this product, but i still had more faith in this thing and myself more than my own dealership so i took the plunge. For $119, I basically have the software version of a tech II device. I was able to unlock my radio in a matter of minutes. Have never used a real or upscale scan tool device so i can’t compare but just poking through some of the menus, it looks like i can do anything a tech II can. Cool thing is that the tech2win software runs just fine on my Windows 10 64bit laptop. Would be even cooler with a surface pro or similar tablet. I’m sure there are reasons for owning an actual tech II device over just software, but I wanted to try something different out of curiosity and explore other options for those that want an even cheaper alternative.

The way to make the connection between the VCX Nano and the computer:

You plug the device into the OBD2 port, and then you either use Wifi back to the laptop to connect that way ($119), or you can use a usb cable instead ($109).

You have options: USB version & Wifi version
