Kobra Products Wifi OBD Scanner User Guide

1. Leave your vehicle's ignition in the off position. Plug the Kobra™ OBD Scanner into vehicle's OBD2 port.

2. Turn your vehicle's ignition to the ON position. On your device, go to "Settings" > "Wi-Fi". Turn on your Wifi and Connect to the Wi-Fi signal named "WiFi_OBDII".

NOTE: If the App you are using still doesn't detect the "WiFi_OBDII" WIFI connection then force quit the app and launch it again. (To force quit inside Android, use "Task Manager". Inside iOS, double-press the home button and close the app).

3. Launch your OBD App. The most popular free apps for Android are: Torque Lite, OBD Link, ScanMaster Lite, OBD Car Doctor, and the most popular paid app is Torque Pro (cost $4.95). For Apple devices the most popular free apps are: OBD Fusion, OBD CarDoctor, and the most popular paid app is DashCommand (costs $9.99). See below complete list of recommended apps.

4. Some Apps will connect automatically, and you can begin using the device immediately. While other apps will require you to connect your device through the App. It really depends on what App you are using. Some apps require configuring to connect to the device first. In this case, go to App Settings and configure it to look for a WIFI OBD Scanner. (see step 5) and select the device.

5. Update Settings Inside OBD App. You need to set OBD App (E.G. Torque) to either search for WIFI. If this is not done, then App won't detect the scanner. This should be done on any OBD App, because they all work similarly.

Instructions:

In Torque (for example), go to "Settings". And update these 2 settings:

1. Tap "Connection" and choose "WIFI", as seen below

2. Tap "Device" and choose the OBD2.

3. Now force close the app via "Task Manager" on your Android device. And launch the app again. This is because many OBD Apps for some reason won't apply new settings unless you close it completely, and launch it again. Inside iOS Apple Device, double-press the home button and close the app.)


Troubleshooting
Step 1: Connect WIFI To Your Tablet or Phone. Before going to Step 2 below, you should have successfully paired the device to Tablet or Phone and car ignition should be ON (one step before engine turns on).

Instructions:
In Torque (for example), go to "Settings". And update these 2 settings:
1. Tap "Connection" and choose "WIFI", as seen below
2. Tap "Device" and choose the OBD2.

Step 3: Now force close the app via "Task Manager" on your Android device. And launch the app again. This is because many OBD Apps for some reason won't apply new settings unless you close it completely, and launch it again. Inside iOS Apple Device, double-press the home button and close the app.)

That's it. It'll now successfully connect to vehicles ECU. Ensure car ignition is on.

Common Issues
Issue: My device is successfully connected to your device but fails to be recognized by the OBD App? Solution: Turn Off WiFi On the Device. Disconnect the OBD Scanner from the Car. Force quit the app. Then close the app With Android, use "Task Manager". With iOS, double-click the home button. Then launch the app again reconnect the WiFi and see if it connects.

Issue: My OBD2 Does not show any signs of power, lights do not illuminate. Solution: Detach the adapter and and repeat the steps outlined above. If problem persists, check your OBD fuse and replace if necessary.

My Phone and App are connected to the Kobra Scanner but im unable to connect to the ECU. Solution: Turn off the WiFi on your device. Force close the app via "Task Manager" on your Android device. Inside iOS Apple Device, double-press the home button and close the app.) Disconnect the Kobra Scanner from you car, reconnect it to the car and wait until the red light is illuminated. Then, reconnect the WiFi on your phone, connect to the OBD2 network and launch the app again.

Issue: I'm trying to clear my "Check Engine" light but it keeps coming back or doesent clear. Solution: If you are experiencing difficulty clearing a particular code, try placing your car in ACC mode (second ignition position). Remember clearing a code does not fix the problem and your car's system will most likely detect the problem again at some point.

Issue: My "Check Engine" and other fault codes are showing on my dash but the Kobra Scanner tool is unable to read them. Solution: While the Kobra Scanner is compatible with 99.93% of automobiles made past 1996, it could be that your vehicle requires more specialized equipment to read the fault code.

Issue: Torque (or any other App) successfully detects the scanner device, but it still is not connecting to car. Solution: In this case your vehicle may not be OBD2 compatible. If your vehicle (any brand) is made/imported AFTER 1 Jan, 1996 then it is 100% OBD2 compliant. If your vehicle is not OBD2 compliant, then only option is to take it to mechanic for them to use their $3000+ scanner like SnapOn.
