How is this done?
Any time a malfunction is detected by your vehicle, a "trouble code" is stored in the engine control module. Certain criteria have to be met to set this code. This trouble code gives technicians a place to start their diagnosis to properly fix your vehicle's problem. Now you can access these codes, retrieve the engine sensors' freeze frame data (data that was stored at the time the fault occurred), and clear this information, which turns the light off.
What do you need?
All you need is an Apple computer running Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or later, Movi® or Movi Pro® software, an OBD 2 interface cable, and an OBD 2 compliant vehicle. You may purchase an OBD 2 interface from our store, or if you already own an interface you can test it's compatibility with our Movi® or Movi Pro® demo software.
Movi® is a software product designed for Mac OS X that, in combination with OBD 2 interfaces that use the ELM327 chip, provides communication with a vehicle's engine diagnostic system.
Movi® is solely intended to interpret the information which is stored in or relayed to the Onboard Diagnostics (OBD) system.
Use Movi® as many times as you want, with any car that supports OBD 2!
Movi® software has the ability to turn off the "check engine" light only. ABS, Air Bag, and other dashboard lights are currently neither read nor affected by Movi®.
Is your automobile OBD 2 certified?
Look for the emissions label under your hood. If your vehicle is OBD 2 compliant, the label will state that it is "OBD 2 Certified".
