Before you use the U585 scanner ,pay attention the details and the function of the U585 Car Diagnostic Tool.

Here are some tips for you that can help you use the Memoscan U585 in the right way .

1,When an engine is running, it produces carbon monoxide, a toxic and
poisonous gas. To prevent serious injury or death from carbon
monoxide poisoning, operate the vehicle ONLY in a well-ventilated
2. To protect your eyes from propelled objects as well as hot or caustic
liquids, always wear approved safety eye protection.
3. When an engine is running, many parts (such as the coolant fan,
pulleys, fan belt etc.) turn at high speed. To avoid serious injury,
always be aware of moving parts. Keep a safe distance from these
parts as well as other potentially moving objects.
4.Engine parts become very hot when the engine is running. To prevent
severe burns, avoid contact with hot engine parts.
5.Before starting an engine for testing or trouble-shooting, make sure
the parking brake is engaged. Put the transmission in park (for
automatic transmission) or neutral (for manual transmission). Block the
drive wheels with suitable blocks.
6.Connecting or disconnecting test equipment when the ignition is ON
can damage test equipment and the vehicle’s electronic components.
Turn the ignition OFF before connecting the U585 to or disconnecting
the U585 from the vehicle’s Data Link Connector (DLC).
7.To prevent damage to the on-board computer when taking vehicle
electrical measurements, always use a digital multimeter with at least
10meg Ohms of impedance.
8. Fuel and battery vapors are highly flammable. To prevent an explosion,
keep all sparks, heated items and open flames away from the battery
and fuel / fuel vapors. DO NOT SMOKE NEAR THE VEHICLE
10. Don’t wear loose clothing or jewelry when working on an engine.
Loose clothing can become caught in the fan, pulleys, belts, etc.
Jewelry is highly conductive, and can cause a severe burn if it makes
contact between a power source and ground.

air filter ducts are properly connected. Check the air filter ducts for
holes, rips or cracks.
-Make sure all engine belts are in good condition. Check for cracked,
torn, brittle, loose or missing belts.
-Make sure mechanical linkages to engine sensors (throttle, gearshift
position, transmission, etc.) are secure and properly connected. See
your vehicle’s service manual for locations.
– Check all rubber hoses (radiator) and steel hoses (vacuum/fuel) for
leaks, cracks, blockage or other damage. Make sure all hoses are
routed and connected properly.
-Make sure all spark plugs are clean and in good condition. Check for
damaged, loose, disconnected or missing spark plug wires.
-Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. Check for
corrosion or broken connections. Check for proper battery and
charging system voltages.
-Check all electrical wiring and harnesses for proper connection. Make
sure wire insulation is in good condition, and there are no bare wires.
– Make sure the engine is mechanically sound. If needed, perform a
compression check, engine vacuum check, timing check (if
applicable), etc.
