A Video Guide on How to Read and Clear Fault Codes with FORScan
Among the features that FORScan offers is the functionality for users to read and clear vehicle fault codes. Fault codes are part of the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) found in most OBD systems. DTCs notify users if there's a certain issue in your vehicle. Each code corresponds to a particular issue in a vehicle. A corresponding fault code is activated once vehicle trouble is detected.
A Youtube video created by SY Diagnostics shows a guide on how to read and clear fault codes using FORScan. Check it out at the video below.
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) are categorized into four main systems. The first letter in the DTC corresponds to the type of system that relates to the trouble code. B-codes (Body) are composed of functions inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle. C-codes (Chassis) deal with functions that are mainly outside of the vehicle's passenger compartment, such as suspensions, brakes, steering, etc. P-codes (Powertrain) include functions related with the vehicle's transmission, engine, and related drivetrain accessories. U-codes (Network & Vehicle Integration) covers all the shared functions that are related to the vehicle's computers and systems.
