U480 OBD2 CAN BUS Code Scanner OBDII Engine Code Reader


With a U480 code reader, you can quickly find out and troubleshoot malfunctions of electronically controlled systems on your car. By simply connecting a U480 with the 16 PIN diagnostic socket, reading the trouble code (DTC) shown on the U480's screen, identifying, locating and checking out trouble codes with attached user's manual.

What is OBD?
OBD-I was the first generation of On Board Diagnostic. This was developed by the California Resource Board in 1988 to better monitor the emissions coming from your vehicle. The second version OBD II was developed due to technology and the desire to expand the diagnostic capability. The OBD computer monitors the performance of the engine and emission systems and will provide an early indication of a malfunction that has occurred in a certain subsystem. If a problem is detected, then the system will illuminate the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) and store the important information. The stored information can then be retrieved by an OBD scanner.

Does My Vehicle have OBDII or EOBD?
All cars and light trucks built and sold in the United States after January 1, 1996 were required to be OBD II equipped. In general, this means all 1996 model year cars and light trucks are compliant, even if built in late 1995.
All petrol cars sold within Europe since 1 Jan 2001 (EOBD), and diesel cars manufactured from 2003, must have on-board diagnostic systems to monitor engine emissions.
Other vehicles
If your vehicle does not fall into any of the above categories, look under the hood and try to locate a label (Fig. 1) that explicitly states that the vehicle was designed to comply with OBD-II legislation.

What is CAN?
Controller Area Network (CAN) is the latest communication protocol that is being used by most of the major vehicle manufacturers since 2006, some as early as 2003. This communication protocol will be mandatory from all vehicle manufacturers starting in 2008. The advantage of using this protocol is it runs at around fifty times the speed of earlier OBDII protocols. The speed improvements coupled with the addition of new diagnostic parameters will give technicians the ability to see more information faster. If you are looking for a OBDII reader that that will work on late model vehicles and vehicles that you may purchase in the future, then we would recommend you getting a tool that is CAN enabled.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It does the job quickly and easily.

Cons: None that I can think of for what it does

Other Thoughts: It worked nicely with a 98 Ford Taurus. After getting error the codes a quick Googling should be enough to get you all you need to know about the errors. What possible causes and how to fix. If you don't want to fix yourself, at least you go the car shop equipped with knowledge so you don't become an easy target!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks!

Pros: Inexpensive
It works.

Cons: Have to look up the codes in the manual.

Other Thoughts: For the price, a good, simple unit. Nothing fancy, but it does read the codes and the manual has a list of the codes. It will clear the code memory too.
