ABC procedure for 2nd Vehicle???
« on: November 22, 2010, 04:29:14 PM »
I have my UG setup and calibrated for my Ford Ranger,  I drove almost 50 miles to calibrate the distance.  Obviously I don't want to do that again.
My wife has a engine light on in our Hyundai elentra, I need to check for codes using UG.

What is the ABC procedure to save all my Ranger settings and use the UG to read engine light trouble codes on Hyundai elantra?

thanks

If you are wanting to just check the codes, then its simple.

Just move UG to the 2nd vehicle, read the codes, and then return it to the 1st vehicle.  No config or calibration will be harmed.

The only issue would be if you have used the "force protocol" configuration option and the 2nd vehicle does not use that protocol.
If so, set the protocol to auto, move it to the 2nd vehicle, and then set it back to the forced protocol when finished.
