Tags: Launch CR419 Launch Creader 419

I received Launch CReader 419 after 10 days i ordered it at Launch X431 it’s small and light, plug and play, portable to use anywhere 

I confirm the plug is connected well;

all buttons are workable;

and the port can be used no issue

the screen resolution is good to read

and the speed, as the dealer says, fast and smart

so far, I have used it for 2 weeks. Worked perfectly.
Read DTCs …OK
Clear DTCs …OK
Turns off Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) …OK
Read dynamic data streams …OK
Read readiness status …OK
Read freeze frame data …OK
Read pending DTCs …OK
Read permanent DTCs …OK
Read vehicle information …OK
Color and graphical display of data streams …OK
Query DTCs …OK

I must say it’s definitely worth every penny (€30 actually), very useful to for home use / personal use/ DIY users etc. Maybe more languages better for others (now English, Spanish, French, German). But for me, it does what i paid for.

If someone is tired of ELM327, handheld CReader 419 launch should a good choice i think.

How to use Launch CRP Touch Pro diagnose Ford Focus
Category: General
Tags: Launch CRP Touch Pro

Launch CRP Touch Pro is a great tool that I will show you some features. I have a 2002 Ford Focus, it has rough Idle problems, and I am going to use Launch CRP Touch Pro to diagnose the problem and show its practical actuation.

Let’s go to see some features we have.
It also has some pad buttons, it is very easy to use with the touch screen which is very incredible quick responsive to move.

This is for Ford here.
On this screen, we can do Automatically search, manually select, manually reset service and F-650 / F-750 Test specification
I always find the vehicle by automatically search, which is quick than manually search.
And it’s asking for the VIN number.
Read out faults: GEM (Generic Electronic Module)  and RCM (Restraint Control Module).
As you can see, we have many systems to read state. And we are going to Powertrain Control Module, and asking Turbo charge = Not equipped.
As you can see, we can read fault codes, there is actually no fault codes because the check engine light isn’t on.
Let’s going to do some more challenging because we don’t have code direction. you can see it can clear the codes, read the data stream.
Let’s go to the data stream, and if you watch this previous video, I am hoping this thing how quickly and responsive compare with other tools.
As you can see we do have hundreds of parameters available here.

Let’s look at this “Throttle Position” and “Intake Air Temperature” and “Fuel Rail Pressure”, it is very responsive.
Very important feature here is graphing, all the graphing display in the same page. Here you could click the graph
to see clearly, it is kind of nice.
If you can’t understand the meaning, you could click the lower button to check it.
What I want to mention is to choose the below button to google for whatever, so really kind of nice feature.
So start the car, and I can tell it does has rough Idle problem for sure. So what I want to do is go back and read fault code.
There is no fault codes here.
So let’s go to read data stream “Engine misfire currently detected”
Go to confirm the definite problem one by one…
Finally, choose “Engine Revolutions Per Minute” and “Fuel Rail Pressure”, as you can see, definitely not fuel pump problem.

All right, Launch CRP Touch Pro does meet the minimum criteria for the future’s require to do the types of diagnostics.
so it is really really good consideration if you want to do some diagnostic. I’ll say it is very responsive, very good communication.
And in my impression, Launch is very good Company, I have to say you could also get some support what happened issues.

WinOLS definitely better than ECM TITANUIM(Feedback)
Category: General
Tags: WinOLS

It is clear that a car is best done with WinOLS if you have the give, but if you leave a car to schedule early in the afternoon and pass it to pick up as the limit at the last minute and WinOLS not give for that car. How long do you have to search the map and try to identify and program until it fine?

Which better Winols and ECM TITANIUM


That’s the problem WinOLS without we would take forever to locate and map to map and define their similar and it takes longer to modify

With Ecm Titanium you leave the essential potential maps to make a normalita repro without squeezing the most of the engine, maps advance, correction, singles, boot and other we all know that if you know not to touch them better not make it clear not appear because you canfudge the engine or turbo pump.

The problem of ecm titanium is that poorly defines the axes of the maps but for me it is no problem because I edit the driver and change the dimensions of X axis and Y to make it look as real as possible and then apply I conversion factors relevant to Z.

Then if I have to look for other important maps that the program does not reflect in their drivers, do you make them yourself, I look in 2D or 3D and is very easy to select the memory location from where it starts to where it ends the map and define their axes as with any other program.

My conclusion is that if you know how a map and as I touch it, the two program can go well but WinOLS v1.500  has more advanced options and is more accurate, but I think a change is slower to use when you start with a new ECU do not know.

Another thing is when you bring a car and you leave him time to do it well get all the juice to the engine and everything is perfect, things change.

So i think that if a person does not know how the parts of an engine and the engine ESN do work and not known as a map, leapfrogging is to have one or another program works.
