Elec. Throttle Adaption is to utilize the car decoder to initialize the throttle actuator so that the learningvalue of the ECU returns to the initial state.By doing these, the movement of the throttle (or idle motor)can be more accurately controlled, thus adjust the intake volume.
3 Steering Angle Reset
To reset the steering angle, first find the relative zero point position for the car to drive in straight line.Taking this position as reference, the ECU can calculate the accurate angle for left and right steering.After replacing the steering angle position sensor, replacing steering mechanical parts (such as steeringgearbox, steering column, end tie rod, steering knuckle), performing four-wheel alignment, or recoveringcar body, you must reset the steering angle.
4 Battery Matching
This function enables you to perform a resetting operation on the monitoring unit of vehicle battery, inwhich the original low battery fault information will be cleared and battery matching will be done.
5 ABS Bleeding
When the ABS contains air, the ABS bleeding function must be performed to bleed the brake system torestore ABS brake sensitivity. lf the ABS computer,ABS pump, brake master cylinder, brake cylinder, brakeline, or brake fluid is replaced, the ABS bleeding function must be performed to bleed the ABS.
6 Break-pad Reset
lf the brake pad wears the brake pad sense line, the brake pad sense line sends a signal sense line to theon-board computer to replace the brake pad.After replacing the brake pad, you must reset the brake pad.Otherwise, the car alarms.
7 DPF Regeneration
DPF regeneration is used to clear PM (Particulate Matter) from the DPF filter through continuouscombustion oxidation mode (such as high temperature heating combustion, fuel additive or catalyst reducePM ignition combustion) to stabilize the filter performance.
8 Gear Learning
The crankshaft position sensor learns crankshaft gear machining tolerance and saves to the computerto more accurately diagnose engine misfires. lf gear learning is not performed for a car equipped withDelphi engine, the MlL turns on after the engine is started.The diagnostic device detects the DTC P1336’gear not learned’. In this case, you must use the diagnostic device to perform gear learning for the car.After gear learning is successful, the MIL turns off. After the engine ECU, crankshaft position sensor, orcrankshaft flywheel is replaced, or the DTC ‘gear not learned” is present, gear learning must be performed.
9 IMMO Service
To prevent the car being used by unauthorized keys, the anti-theft key matching function must beperformed so that the immobilizer control system on the car identifies and authorizes remote control keysto normally use the car. When the ignition switch key, ignition switch, combined instrument panel,ECu,BCM, or remote control battery is replaced, anti-theft key matching must be performed
10 Injector Coding
Write injector actual code or rewrite code in the ECU to the injector code of the corresponding cylinder soas to more accurately control or correct cylinder injection quantity. After the ECU or injector is replaced,injector code of each cylinder must be confirmed or re-coded so that the cylinder can better identifyinjectors to accurately control fuel injection.
11 TPMS Reset
After the tire pressure MIL turns on and maintenance is performed, the tire pressure resetting function must be performed to reset tire pressure and turn off the tire pressure MIL.Tire pressure resetting must be performed if tire pressure is too low, tire leaks, tire pressure monitoring device is replaced or installed, tire is replaced, tire pressure sensor is damaged, and tire is replaced for the car with tire pressure monitoring function.
12 Suspension Matching
This function can adjust the height of the body. When replacing the body height sensor in the air suspension system, or control module or when the vehicle level is incorrect, you need to perform this function to adjust the body height sensor for level calibration.
