Re: Top Don OBD2 Scanner for ECU & Enhanced Codes

G'Day JP,
Thanks for posting all this up..
I was wondering if it would handle DU ...looks like it will ...awesome...I'll get one of these...

As for Yaw rate / zero point calibration.... I already have a device to reset this - after lift etc....
A bloke DU built a plug n play tool to fix this, it just plugs into the OBDII point - saves trying to jump pins
Do you know if the Top Don, can reset Yaw rate ?

Thanks mate,

Cheers
Baz

Sounds like a handy tool. I used to jump the pins as well. My issue was after I had reset it multiple times, it would come back only on certain turns that I was knowingly driving hard, certain turn off ramps with decreasing radius. I think the VSC was doing it's job at those certain slip angles and wasn't causing the issue randomly. Since the DTC stays in the memory after the dash light shuts off (not sure it's supposed to shut off, but mine does), next time I scan I know I have the error code waiting. Let me see if it has a yaw rate/calibration mode. I'll try to check it out tonight at work but I'm leaving town so in a bit a rush. If not, I'll be sure to get to it first thing Monday.

Upon a quick search online, I don't see any option for that resetting calibration, but only trouble codes so if that's a concern, you may want to get one of the larger handheld units that have a little more power.

@bazross Their answer: "To calibrate steering angle zero point, you can refer to TOPDON Artidiag 100 Diagnostic scanner , here is the link for your reference, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D9F46NM. Any further question, feel free to contact us." Basically, you'd have to get something as powerful as the Toyota tools (Techstream?).

G'Day JP,
Thanks mate,
I'm talking to Hayden at Topdon to see what we can sort out.
I dont need the Yaw / zero point calibration, as I have a device for that already.... was just wondering if you can re-calibrate it with the Elite.
So its all good.
Cheers
Baz

The answer is no, you don't have to have a Techstream. I use this:
