Disconnect Forscan from Vehicle

Post by mickalo » Sun Jul 14, 2019 7:08 am

Hello,

Tried searching this on the forum but wasn't sure what to search for.

Being new to forscan just installed it the other day and was going to try it out this week. basic question regarding disconnecting and closing forscan when done. I read somewhere that if you don't close it done correctly can causing DTC codes to pop up. when done making changes, backup and such what is the correct procedure to disconnect and close forscan from the vehicle and on the PC ?

Thanks for the help
Mike

Mike,

here is a link to a "how to" video and at about the 6:44 mark of the video this guy explains how to disconnect FORScan from your vehicle properly.
