X-431 PAD V is Launch’s latest top-end car comprehensive diagnostic scan tool based on the Android 7.1 system. It inherits Launch’s many advantages in car fault diagnostic technologies, including large car model coverage, powerful functions, a large number of special functions, and accurate test data.

  • With its new advanced Smartbox 3.0, X-431 PAD V could diagnose the passenger and heavy-duty vehicles (software and adaptors are optional) with one single dongle. And to make it better, it also has the built-in J2534 adaptor to make the X-431 PAD V one of the most powerful scan tools in the market. X-431 PAD V also supports LAUNCH’s extension module applications for oscilloscopes, sensors, endoscopes, multimeters, and battery detection, etc.
  • Its operation is easier and more intuitive, it includes a package of “Full” vehicle brands (more than 80 brands), with the most important European, Asian and American vehicle manufacturers, together with the full potential of LAUNCH diagnostic software. Able to diagnose cars, commercial vehicles, and also industrial vehicles (12 and 24 V).
  • The PAD V is compatible with the J2534 and ISO22900 (Pass-Thru) communication protocols, in this way you can connect to the manufacturer’s website and perform programming among many other functions.

1. Full System Diagnosis:

  • Actuation Test
    This option is used to access vehicle-specific subsystem and component tests. Available tests vary by the vehicle manufacturer, year, and model. During the actuation test, the display tablet outputs commands to the ECU in order to drive the actuators and then determines the integrity of the system or parts by reading the ECU data, or by monitoring the operation of the actuators, such as switching an injector between two operating states.
  • ECU Coding
    X431 PRO3S+ advanced diagnostic tool comes with advanced ECU coding & online ECU coding capability (on the majority of Volkswagen) to make full use of the hidden features like auto park, tilting rear-view mirrors, unfolding mirrors, customizing daytime running light, disabling auto engine start-stop and etc depending on the electronic features already built-in.
    Because every automobile actuator has a record code in ECU, which is the basis for automobile computer to mobilize their work.

LAUNCH X431 PAD V is equipped with an advanced ECU coding function for addressing the following issues:

  • After you change the bad actuators or certain parts, you need to use this function to make a new code and recognize the new actuators.
  • By changing the code with the ECU coding, it’s easy to improve vehicle performance or stimulate high-end functions for the car.
  • ECU coding enables multiple car systems to recognize each other and then the actuators can start to work.

2. Special Reset Functions

(NOTE: You can find 15 kinds of commonly used reset functions in the reset menu, and other special functions in the car brand diagnostic software menu)

  • Oil Lamp, Oil Reset Service allows you to perform reset for a new calculation of Engine Oil Life system once changed the oil.
  • EPB, Electronic Parking Brake Reset is important in the maintenance of electronic braking system’s safety and efficiency.
  • BMS, BAT, Battery Maintenance, Battery Register:
    allows the scan tool to evaluate the battery charge state, monitor the close-circuit current, register the battery replacement, and activate the rest state of the vehicle.
  • DPF, Diesel Particulate Filter regeneration: especially works for Diesel Particulate Filter system with DPF regeneration, DPF component replacement teach-in and DPF teach-in after replacing the engine control unit.
  • SAS, Steering Angle Calibration helps clear the fault steering angle sensor memories and plays an important role in the steering angle sensor calibration.
  • TMPS, Tire Pressure Monitor System Reset makes sense in displaying sensor IDs from the vehicle’s ECU, inputting TPMS sensor replacement IDs and testing sensors.
  • ABS Bleeding: ABS brake bleeding to get a firm brake pad after air exhaustion.
  • Throttle, Electronic Throttle Position Reset/ learn: The throttle body is a tube containing a pivoting flat valve (butterfly) that is used to control the amount ofair entering an engine. In an electronically fuel-injected car, a throttle position sensor and airflow sensor communicate with the computer, which supplies the corresponding amount of fuel needed at the injectors. It must need re-learning throttle sensor position after clearing or repair
  • Gear Learning: Leaking injectors and some dead injectors can be missed even when an injector is disabled. Other problems with the ignition system and mechanical components also may not show an rpm loss when an injector is turned off
  • AFS Reset (Adaptive Front-lighting System): It detects the light of the environment, then decides whether to automatically turn on the headlights or not. It can also adjust the headlights in time by monitoring the driving speed and body posture of the vehicle.
  • SUS Reset: When the body height sensor and control module in the air suspension system are replaced or the level of the car is wrong, this function needs to be performed to level the body height sensor.
  • EGR Adaption: Reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the exhaust gas and improve fuel economy at partial load.

3. Other Functions:

  • Health Report (Quick Test) It enables you to quickly access all the electronic control units of the vehicle and generate a detailed report about vehicle health. Note: This function varies from vehicle to vehicle.
  • Remote Diagnose helps repair shops or technicians launch instant messaging and remote diagnosis, making the repair job gets fixed faster. Could access remotely and quickly via mobile phone, tablet and computer, with low bandwidth and system resource occupancy. It also can “Add friend”, can add the one who also uses launch product, then you can communicate with them in X431 Pro3s, if you have a problem to car repair, you can talk with them online, they can help you.
  • Diagnostic feedback for any problem found during the diagnosis, submit the vehicle issue to us for analysis and troubleshooting.
  • Diagnostic History This function provides quick access to the tested vehicles and users can choose to view the test report or resume from the last operation, without the necessity of starting from scratch.
