Launch X-431 PAD VII Connections
Normal testing conditions
• Turn on the vehicle power supply.
• Vehicle battery voltage range should be 9-18V or 11-36V and working voltage of the tablet is 5V.
• Throttle should be closed at its close position.
Select testing connectors/adaptor cables
If the tablet is testing vehicles equipped with universal OBD II (16 pin) diagnostic socket, please use the
included SmartLink C device. For vehicles with non-OBD II (non-16 pin) diagnostic socket, a non-16 pin
connector is required.
For Passenger Vehicles, the DLC (Data Link Connector or Diagnostic Link Connector) is the standardized 16-cavity connector where diagnostic code readers interface with the vehicle’s on-board computer. The DLC is usually located 12 inches from the center of the instrument panel (dash), under or around the driver’s side for most vehicles. If Data Link Connector is not located under dashboard, a label should be there telling location. For some Asian and European vehicles, the DLC is located behind the ashtray and the ashtray must be removed to access the connector. If the DLC cannot be found, refer to the vehicle’s service manual for the location.
