“THINKSCAN Plus S04 currently supports 16 maintenance software, which will be increased to 26-28 in the future. The maintenance software is completely free to use and free to upgrade.
1.Oil Reset ：allows you to perform reset for a new calculation of Engine Oil Life system once changed the oil.
2.EPB Reset ：is important in the maintenance of electronic braking system’s safety and efficiency.
3.BMS Reset: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.
4.DPF Reset:specially works for Diesel Particulate Filter system with DPF regeneration, DPF component replacement teach-in and DPF teach-in after replacing the engine control unit.
5.SAS Reset:helps clear the fault steering angle sensor memories and plays an important role in the steering angle sensor calibration.
6.TPMS Reset :makes sense in displaying sensor IDs from the vehicle’s ECU, inputting TPMS sensor replacement IDs and testing sensors.
7.IMMO reset:it is mainly used to disable the lost vehicle keys and program a new replacement key fob.
8.ABS Bleeding:ABS brake bleeding to get a firm brake pad after air exhaustion.
9.Throttle reset: The throttle body is a tube containing a pivoting flat valve (butterfly) that is used to control the amount of air entering an engine. In an electronically fuel injected car, a throttle position sensor and air flow 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
10.Injector Coding: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.
11.Gear Learning:After the engine ECU, crankshaft position sensor, or crankshaft flywheel is replaced, or the DTC ‘tooth not learned’ is present, tooth learning must be performed.
12.Suspension Matching:Adjust the vehicle height sensor for level calibration.
13.Sunroof Initialization:Set the sunroof lock off, close in rain, memory function of sliding 1 tilting sunroof, outside temperature threshold, etc.
14.Battery Matching:By clearing the original breakdown information about the lack of battery power,rematch the battery.
15.A/F Reset:Applied to set or lean Air/Fuel ratio parameters.
16.Steering Angle Reset:helps clear the fault steering angle sensor memories and plays an important role in the steering angle sensor calibration.”
