X-431 PAD III V2.0 Handset VCI (Vehicle Communication Interface)
The handset acts as the central processing system, which is used to receive and analyze the live vehicle data from the VCI connector and then output the test result.
VCI (Vehicle Communication Interface)
The VCI connector works as a vehicle communication interface device, which is used to connect to the vehicle's DLC (Data Link Connector) socket directly or via OBD II extension cable to read the vehicle data and then send it to the handset via wireless (BT) communication only works with the vehicle with 12V battery voltage
Install the VCI connector
1. Locate vehicle's DLC socket:
The DLC (Data Link Connector) is typically a 16-pin connector where diagnostic code readers interface with the vehicle's on-board computer.
It is usually located on driver's side, about 12 inches away from the center of dashboard. See Figure DLC Location.
In case no DLC is found, please refer to Automobile Repair Manual.
2. Plug the VCI connector into the vehicle's DLC (It is suggested to use the OBD II extension cable to connect the DLC and the VCI). Normally the power indicator of the VCI will light up.
