Operating the ScanTool
Installing the Software
1. Insert the CD-ROM into your PC’s CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
2. The Setup program will automate the installation process. Follow the instructions
provided on your screen.
3. If you purchased any enhanced expansions, refer to the blue activation instruction
sheet for details about activating your enhanced coverage.
Connecting the ProLine VCI connector to the Vehicle
1. Locate the Data Link Connector (DLC) in your vehicle. It is most often located
below the dash or steering column in the driver’s area. Typically it is not covered
and will not require a tool to access (notable exceptions being BMW &
Mercedes). A crouching technician should be able to see it under the dash or
steering column. (See Appendix A of the User Guide for details on hard-to-find
Common Problems
1. I can’t find my vehicle’s DLC / OBD-II connector.
On some vehicles it can be concealed or not in the driver’s area. Don’t forget to see
Appendix A of the ScanTool User Guide for details on “hard-to-find” Data Link
Connectors (DLC). Sometimes it also helps to “crouch” outside of the vehicle and use
a flashlight to look under the dash. Also, you might find a sticker with the actual DLC
location instead of a DLC. Lastly, run your hand underneath the dash to feel for a
connector that would fit the vehicle end of the AutoEnginuity ScanTool ProLine VCI
2. What do the lights on the ProLine connector mean?
The LED lights on the ProLine VCI connector can help you determine the connection
state. The red light is for power. Power will come from the vehicle and it can also be
powered by the USB port on the computing device. Next to the power LED is the
amber light, that tells you if the USB chipset has completed enumerating on your
computing device. Finally, the green light is the TX/RX indicator. When data is
exchanged it will blink. If either the red or amber light are not illuminated, then the
ScanTool software won’t be able to complete a connection.
3. I get a checkmark after the “Locating OBD-II Connector”, but no other
checkmarks appear.
Most likely the vehicle interface type is incorrect for your vehicle or Auto Detect
failed to determine the vehicle interface type. (See Table 1.) Open the Connection
Configuration window to change the computer or vehicle interface type by clicking
the AutoEnginuity logo in the Connection Status window, or by selecting Vehicle |
Communications Configuration. Also, make sure that the PC and the vehicle are
properly cabled, the AutoEnginuity ScanTool ProLine VCI connector is firmly
attached to the vehicle’s DLC, and that either the vehicle’s key is in the “ON” position
or the vehicle is running.

2. Connect the “USB” end of the AutoEnginuity ProLine VCI connector to your
computing device with the USB cable. Look for the red and amber LEDs to light.
3. Connect the “Vehicle” end of the AutoEnginuity ProLine VCI connector to the
vehicle’s DLC.
4. Turn the vehicle’s key to the “ON” position. In rare cases, starting the vehicle
may help to operate the ScanTool. You will be required to start the vehicle for
some onboard system tests to run, and for some live vehicle data sensors to report
(i.e., oxygen sensor, ignition timing advance #1, etc.).
NOTE: Never operate a vehicle within a confined space. Vehicle emissions are
Operating the Software
1. Launch the ScanTool program from the Start | Programs | AutoEnginuity menu.
2. The Connection Status window will appear over the ScanTool program. If the
ScanTool doesn’t automatically start connecting to your vehicle, select Vehicle |
3. The ScanTool program connection settings are defaulted to USB or Serial AE
ProLine Device for the computer interface and Auto Detect for the vehicle
interface type. The ScanTool can usually connect to all vehicles with these
settings. If this is not the case, you may be required to manually change these
settings. In the Connection Status window, click either the AutoEnginuity logo or
select Vehicle | Communications Configuration to change the computer interface
and/or vehicle interface type. First, ensure that the computer interface you are
using (i.e., USB, J2534, or Wireless) is correctly selected. Next, you should try
manually selecting the vehicle interface. For details on which vehicle interface
type to select, see Table 1: Vehicle Interface Types per Manufacturer. You will
not be required to restart the program if you change these settings.
4. As each step is completed, a checkmark will appear next to it. When the first two
checkmarks appear, the ScanTool is connected to the vehicle and will ask you to
tell it the make, model, and year. This information is required to help the software
translate all of the data it retrieves. Click OK when you are done. Once all the
steps have completed, the Connection Status window will disappear and you are
free to operate AutoEnginuity’s ScanTool.
