Can't open dtc's that I download to my phone.

Post by Jayflight69 » Tue Apr 16, 2019 11:57 pm

Hello, I did a scan on my truck and saved the trouble codes to my phone but can't open them. I also tried to e-mail them to my phone and still can't open them. I have an LG phone. What am I doing wrong? Would like to save these codes for future reference. Thank you for any help.

I'm not entirely sure but I don't think you can access saved data with FORScan Lite unless you are connected to a vehicle.


I find it more convenient to take Screenshots or Screen Records of anything important.


They say that any digital data that you need to keep is not safe unless it is backed up to at least 3 different places. For example if you need to clear your Apps data or Factory Reset your phone, then the data may be lost for ever.

I have never tried emailing data, but it may be saved in a format that most recipetants can't open.
