Installation package for your chosen operating system (for example, for Windows OS, you need to download and install a file Setup.exe).

This version of the program works directly with the adapter via a Wi-Fi network and does not require a permanent Internet connection.

Online version

Online version

To use the online version of the program, you do not need to download and install the program, just go to the website www.scandoc.online in a web browser and enter your username and password.

The online version of the program requires a constant Internet connection, but it makes it possible to work with adapters remotely. For example, the adapter can be connected to the car and to the Internet via Wi-Fi in another city.

To work with the adapter remotely, you must "attach" it to your account. You can attach or untie the adapter in the online version of the program only.

To register, you need a password for the adapter or an invitation code (Invite code)

Password for adapter

Password for adapter

When you buy a new device, you get a password for the adapter. This password is also an invitation code (Invite code) when registering an account if you have not created it yet. The password is required to bind the adapter to your account or to “untie” it during the sale, as well as to allow other users to access their adapters. The password is saved to the adapter and does not change over time. The password can be read from the adapter in the ScanDoc program.

Invitation Code (Invite Code)

Invitation Code (Invite Code)

Invite Code - the invitation code that you receive when you purchase the device or from other participants www.scandoc.online.
If you bought a new scanner, then the invitation code will match the password that you receive with your scanner.

Password for the Wi-Fi connection of the adapter

Password for the Wi-Fi connection of the adapter

To connect the ScanDoc scanner to a computer or phone via a Wi-Fi network, you must enter the adapter password on Wi-Fi .
The Wi-Fi password is set in the adapter at the factory.

Window for choosing a car model in ScanDoc

After communication with the electronic control unit (ECU) is established, the program will show sections of the diagnostic module.
In different ECU can be a different number of sections.

Depending on the type of ECU or the diagnostic protocol, it may take from 0.5 to 15 seconds to start working with the computer. Some ECUs require more time. This may be due to the peculiarities of the diagnostic protocol itself, and to reading the configuration of the car with a scanner.

The DTC section shows the number of DTC errors.

Identification Section

ScanDoc Authentication Menu

There are shown the ECU identification data. This data is necessary to determine the version of software and hardware, the calibration version of the control units. The identification data contains additional information necessary for the correct diagnosis of this control unit.

The program controls the software versions in the ECU and identifiers. If the program encounters an unknown identifier, a message is displayed. Continuation of work is usually impossible                      or limited. In some cases, the user can continue to work, taking responsibility for the risks.

Fault Codes (DTC) Section

The Fault Codes section displays error codes (DTCs) that the electronic control unit, their status and decryption have saved.

Fault Code List (DTC)

Most ECUs, in addition to storing the error number, can display the current error status in an additional column. Statuses show additional information on the code. For example, that the code is active or missing at the moment.

The scanner reads the error code and decodes it. The error may be numbered as specified by the manufacturer or by the OBD-II standard.

To send a command to delete DTCs from the ECU, press the button Clear button.

The OBD-II standard also provides codes defined by the manufacturer. These codes begin with the number P1000.

Errors defined by the OBD-II standard

Symbol Decryption
P P - Powertrain
B - Body
C - Chassis
U - Communication.
0 0 - Codes are defined by the OBD-II standard.
1 - Codes defined by the manufacturer.
1 System or vehicle code.

Some manufacturers standards only assume the numerical value of the error.

Freeze frame

Some blocks support the Freeze frame mode. When an error occurs, information about certain parameters is recorded in the memory of the control unit. This allows you to determine the conditions under which the error occurred. Freeze frame is recorded separately for each error.

If the Freeze frame is available for the error, the error name is displayed in orange in the form of a link. For information, click on the name of the error. Freeze frame will appear under error.

Some ECUs provide several Freeze frames with a single error code. Data is usually stored before, during, and after the appearance of the DTC.

If decryption is not defined for the error code, then you should contact technical support, as well as the dealer description for car repair.

Data Stream Section

Data Stream

In the "Data Stream" you can see the current information read from the sensors of the control unit.

In ECUs operating under the ISO-9141, KW71, KW-1284 protocols, each diagnostic parameter is requested separately by the scanner. Each request takes about 0.1 seconds. It takes about 1 second to display 10 parameters. The more parameters are displayed on the screen, the more time the screen will refresh.

Data Stream
  1. By default, 10 parameters are displayed on the page. You can select more options in the drop-down list.
  2. The total number of parameters subtracted from the computer.
  3. Number of pages with data. To switch to another page, click on the number of the page.

  4. Filter removal button (if you need to remove the entire filter);
Adding a parameter to a filter

How to quickly create a set of your own parameters:

  1. To quickly find a parameter from the general list, enter its name in the search line of the right table (on the right - a table with all possible parameters);
  2. Select the required parameter and check the checkbox on it, now the parameter has appeared in the left table (on the left - a table with the parameters you selected for the filter);

If you need to remove a parameter from your filter, uncheck this parameter in the left table.

The filter is saved automatically, after editing the list of parameters, just press the Cancel button.

Filter application

You can apply the filter in the DataStream tab.

Filter application

Above the list of parameters in the datastream, you can see a drop-down list with filters.

Click on a filter name to apply it to the current list of parameters.

If the parameters that are in the filter are not present in the current ECU, then the filter will not appear in the drop-down list.

For example, the O2 Sensors filter consists of the parameters "O2 Sensor 1 Bank 1" and "O2 Sensor 2 Bank 1".
If you connect to the AirBag airbag ECU, the O2 Sensors filter will not appear in the drop-down list, because the parameters "O2 Sensor 1, Bank 1" and "O2 Sensor 2, Bank 1" are not present in the Airbag ECU.

Filter application

If you apply a filter, then only those parameters that are in the filter and are present in the ECU will be displayed.

  1. To the right of the drop-down list, you can see the name of the applied filter;
  2. To cancel the filter and show all parameters from the ECU, press the clear filter button.

Adding parameters to a filter on the fly

If you see a parameter that you forgot to enter into the filter, then you can quickly add it to the filter without interrupting the work.
You can quickly add a parameter only to a previously created filter.

Adding a parameter in the Dataflow window

To quickly add a parameter to the previously created filter:

  1. Select the required parameters with the checkbox;
  2. Press add to filter button;
  3. In the new window, select the filter to which the parameter will be added.

Section "Actuator Tests"

Many control units allow you to temporarily control actuators (nozzles, motors, solenoid valves) to check their performance.

Actuator Tests

The list of actuator tests depends on the specific ECU model.

By selecting an actuator, you can control it using buttons or knobs. Sometimes the current readings of some parameters are displayed. Each actuator is tested in its own way.

Section "Configuration"

Often, ECU manufacturers make universal blocks that are configured for a specific vehicle equipment.

Section Configuration

Configuration is also often called coding.

The number of encoding parameters depends on the specific ECU model.

Change the desired parameter and press Ok, the scanner will write data to the block.

Utilities Section

Utilities Section

Here are the specialized ECU functions, such as adaptations, discharges, etc.

Adaptations

Some components of car systems, after installing new parts, or periodically, require an adaptation procedure. This may be, for example, teaching the control unit the extreme values of the throttle sensor or clutch pedal.

Before adapting, it is strongly recommended that you read the car repair documentation that describes this procedure.
Reset Adaptations

The engine management system adapts to changes in the parameters of the sensors. When installing new spare parts, zeroing of previously saved corrections is required. To do this, reset the adaptations.

If you are unsure of the function being performed, then refer to the appropriate manual before activating it. It must be understood that after resetting the adaptation, with a partially defective MAF, the engine may not start.
Reset Service Intervals

It is made when changing the oil. The reset procedure for each manufacturer is different. In one case, it can be just one reset button, in another - programming the run interval until the next warning occurs. For a more detailed description, refer to the vehicle repair documentation.
