1. Safety Precautions And Warnings
To prevent personal injury or damage to vehicles
and/ or the Scan Tool, read this instruction manual
first and observe the following safety precautions,
at a minimum, whenever working on a vehicle:
Always perform automotive testing in a safe environment.
Wear safety eye protection that meets ANSI standards.
Keep clothing, hair, hands, tools, test equipment,
etc. away from all moving or hot engine parts.
Operate the vehicle in a well-ventilated work area:
Exhaust gases are poisonous.
Put blocks in front of the drive wheels and never
leave the vehicle unattended while running tests.
Use extreme caution when working around the
ignition coil, distributor cap, ignition wires and
spark plugs. These components create hazardous
voltages when the engine is running.
Put the transmission in PARK (for automatic
transmission) or NEUTRAL (for manual transmission)
and make sure the parking brake is engaged.
Keep a fire extinguisher suitable for gasoline/
chemical/electrical fires nearby.
Don't connect or disconnect any test equipment
while the ignition is on or the engine is running.
Keep the Scan Tool dry, clean, free from oil, water or
grease. Use a mild detergent on a clean cloth to clean
the outside of the Scan Tool, when necessary.
