steps as the tablet displays:

1 start the vehicle

2 drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at a speed not higher than 20km/h

3 while driving turn the steering wheel one turn to the right and one turn to the left

4 when having the steering wheel straight again stop the vehicle with the wheel’s pointed

straight

5 ensure that the steering wheel is not moved again

6 keep the engine running and do not switch off the ignition

7 system voltage at least 12.0v

My thoughts:

Automotive Diagnostic Tools x431 v has 23 languages available (it’s said to add more) and it’s very easy to change the setup language by users (no need any help from the factory; ds708 needs that). And the new Launch x431 v covers almost full European and USA cars. Of course, no problem with Asian cars. And works good Brazilian, Indian, Malaysian cars also.
