Displayed from left to right are  The status of the connection with the ELM  The status of the ELM  The ECU undergoing diagnosis  The make of vehicle selected  The OBD protocol currently being used Vehicle make selection window In order to obtain as much data as possible on connection. The functions in these tabs are described in more detail in the following pages. dashboard and CAN bus analyser  Register to create an activation file to activate the software. select this make.  Help to run this help file and know the software version Tabs: represent the various tabs in the main window. If the make you want is not available.EOBD-Facile Manual 3 Overview The software is comprised of several principal zones described below Menus: contain the various main menus for the software:  File containing the menu Parameters and PID Decoder. This choice will display the corresponding description of the manufacturer’s specific DTCs.  Additional functions containing shortcuts to the graphic functions. select Generic / Other Special cases: If your make does not appear but your vehicle is fitted with the engine of one of the makes listed.  Language to choose the language used by the software  Interface to view the interface parameters  Calculators to select the calculator on which to run the diagnostics.

you can force the ELM to connect with the desired protocol. It may happen that protocol auto-detection does not work for several reasons. To do so. you can use ELM32x RS232 or Bluetooth interfaces by correctly configuring the port parameters and by connecting with an (ELM327 USB) interface in the connection tab. Note: Connection problems are never due to the fact that your software version is not registered! First. You can connect in several ways: When the message “The interface is connected and initialised” appears. run the Bluetooth connection manager If your interface has never been paired. 5 Connecting using a Bluetooth interface Before connecting using a Bluetooth interface. In this case. By default. To do. Confirm your parameters by clicking on OK. you will be asked for a code. The properties of the interface will give you the COM port number to be used when connecting with Bluetooth from the EOBD-Facile software (Interface ELM327 Bluetooth) Configuring the initialisation time: The ELM requires time to initialise the connection with the vehicle. Unless you are an expert. Indications are displayed Outils OBD Facile – January 2015 3 . select “Enter the device pairing code”. The result of this scan will be displayed in the text area of the connection tab. and proceed as follows: Connect your interface to the vehicle Switch on the vehicle’s ignition (the engine indicator should be lit) Start the connection using the Connection button on the application EOBD-Facile will scan all the computers in your vehicle.  Manually: The software tries to connect using the parameters you entered in the Setup window – accessible from the File menu. display the devices and connect the interface. Important: This option is only possible with USB ELMs. the software is ready to communicate with the vehicle 4  Automatically: The software automatically detects the port number and communication speed of your ELM. Most often it is because there are several valid protocols for your vehicle.EOBD-Facile Manual Connecting to the vehicle (USB and RS232) to help you diagnose the problem. and all the functions supported by them. you must first pair it. connect to the vehicle using the interface. Note 1: The status bar at the bottom of the main window permanently displays the connection status. when you open the application. consult the chapter Problems connecting to the vehicle. The USB driver for the interface must first be installed. (see image below). Important: In manual (Auto-detection unchecked). Important: If you are having problems connecting to your vehicle. Once the interface has been paired. click on “add the device” to your list of known devices. leave the option on automatic. Autodetection is checked by default. If you are having connection problems. read the information in the text area. For the pairing option. it may be helpful to increase this parameter. you must first pair the interface with the computer. Configuring the vehicle protocol: The ELM can automatically detect your vehicle’s protocol. the waiting time is set to 14 seconds. Note 2: If you are having problems connecting.

etc.) Clear resets all data concerning the fault(s) stored in the ECU to zero. After clearing. Very important:  Only use this function to find the cause of the failure and after having repaired it. Click Read to show the currently selected ECU and update the window with:  Confirmed fault codes  The current status of the indicator  The distance and time since the indicator has been lit (not available for all vehicles)  The monitored test tables The monitor test shows the status of the various systems:  Not supported: Shows if the system is not monitored electronically by the ECU  Completed means that all system tests have been successfully completed. etc. The function is available in the unregistered version of the software. at full load. idling. These data show the conditions when the fault was detected (engine hot. Engine status when the fault appeared (Mode 2) completes the diagnostic data (only on the full version).EOBD-Facile Manual 9 The “Diagnostic” tab This tab is used to diagnose the cause of the indicator light. 6 .  This operation will cancel all the fault codes and also the whole internal diagnostic history of the code(s) present:  reset monitor tests. a message will confirm whether or not the operation was successful. mileage when the fault appeared.  Completed means that the system tests failed or that the ECU has not completed all the system tests (after cancelling a fault for example)  Outils OBD Facile – January 2015 Description of fault codes: Click on the default code to update the associated description. A fault may sometimes reappear after several hundreds of kilometres. The software uses the vehicle make selected on connection to show the exact description.

the faults are recorded in mode 7. Read (Mode 10) corresponds to the permanent DTC. faults detected on the vehicle need several driving cycles before the indicator lights. Permanent faults cannot be deleted. Select the index number of the fault you want (default 0). Read (Mode 2) is used to display the engine status when the fault appeared. The software will display a table with the values of the associated engine sensors. Usually. These functions are only available in the full version of the software.

Hardware filtering: this is a filter than can be set within the ELM. The connection will fail but you will still be able to use the CAN bus analyser function. force the interface in one of the CAN protocols and start the connection. Thus it avoids saturating the link between the ELM and EOBD-Facile. either increase the communication speed with the ELM or define a filter to only display the frames that interest you. It has the advantage of being easy to configure but does not solve ELM buffer overflow problems. The principle of filtering is to choose CAN identifiers that you want to display.  The status of the CAN filters. frames with the same ID are always displayed on the same line. Reading can be paused at any time.
