The THINKCAR can quickly locate failures in your car, identifying and describing the problem. It also enables continuous data monitoring of cylinder pressure, air-fuel ratio and spark intensity. THINKCAR continually monitors your fuel consumption by accessing the vehicle’s fuel vaporization carbon tank data (EVAP).
It allows you to reduce exhaust pollution and determine when your vehicle is ready for emissions testing. With its advanced intelligence, THINKCAR is a long-term solution in ensuring your car continues to run at prime condition long past its sell-by date.

How It’s Different
Full Vehicle Diagnostics:
Why does THINKCAR differ from other products? Conventional OBD tools can only scan four major parts of a car, whereas THINKCAR will provide a fully comprehensive test, assessing additional systems of your vehicle such as its ABS, gearbox, and engine. This allows you to enjoy full control over your car’s systems.
On top of this tool’s excellent intuition, mechanics using THINKCAR’s app can access your vehicle’s data from anywhere, regardless of distance. Even if you struggle to understand your OBD data, rest assured that anyone with the THINKCAR app can connect to your car and help resolve any concerns.
Inspired by aviation, the THINKCAR scan tool features a blackbox function. OBD data from your vehicle is recorded and stored in real time allowing you to access historical data through the app. If you are ever involved in a crash or motor accident, the THINKCAR 1 or 1S functions as a standalone Event Data Recorder. Saved data can be reviewed by technicians to analyze the root cause of the vehicles issues.
What is OBD?
OBD stands for On-Board Diagnostic. It’s the standardized system that allows external electronics to interface with a car’s computer system. It has become more important as cars have become increasingly computerized, and software has become the key to fixing many problems and unlocking performance
OBD vs. OBD II
Several automakers introduced computer interfaces for their own cars before the 1990s, but the push to standardize didn’t begin until 1991, when the California Air Resources Board (CARB) mandated that all cars sold in California needed some form of OBD capability. However, CARB didn’t issue standards for the systems until 1994. Known as OBD II, that standard was implemented for the 1996 model year, and is still in use today. Previous iterations of OBD were retroactively classified OBD I.Virtually every new car sold in the U.S. over the past 20 years follows the OBD II standard. OBD II cars have a port — usually located under the dashboard on the driver’s side — that devices can plug into and connect to a car’s computer.
Delving into diagnostics
As the name implies, diagnostics are the primary purpose of OBD. When a car’s sensors decide that something is amiss, they trigger a message known as a “trouble code,” which may manifest as a “check engine” light or other warning on the dashboard. OBD scanners can check these trouble codes to determine exactly what’s wrong, and clear them from the computer’s memory once the problem is fixed
OBD for performance
Diagnostics may be the most important function of OBD equipment, but these tools can also be used to make your car go faster.Several aftermarket brands offer both OBD II data loggers and performance tuners that access critical vehicle systems through the dashboard port
OBD AND SCAN TOOLS
Release time: 31, MAR 2019
When the “Check Engine” light comes on, many motorists don’t have a clue as to what to do next. They know the light means something is wrong, but is it a serious problem or a minor one? The only way to know for sure is to plug a scan tool or code reader into the vehicle’s diagnostic connector and see what comes out
Scan Tool Differences
Whether you are choosing a scan tool for diagnosing customer’s vehicles, or are recommending a scan tool to a DIYer or a professional, there are major differences between the types of scan tool products available.There is a huge difference between a basic code reader and a full-fledged scan tool
Our product has already been produced, tested and verified. This gives us a massive advantage in knowing our hardware is ready to be shipped. We’ve encountered many crowdfunded campaigns on Kickstarter that have failed to deliver goods to their backers for months, even years. We preempted this by ensuring our product was a fully manufactured product before even considering embarking on our crowdfunding campaign. THINKCAR is a trustworthy company to invest in.
How to set up Thinkcar for the first time?
1) Make sure your vehicle is compatible. Vehicles which support OBD II standards after 2005. (Check the compatibility list for more information on models supported: Think Car Compatibility List).
2) Install the Thinkcar APP on your smartphone and sign up for a new account. You can also sign in via Facebook or Twitter.
3) Make sure your smartphone is connected to a stable network.
4) Find the OBD II port of the vehicle. In most of the vehicles, it is located on the driver’s side under the dashboard and above the pedal.
5) Insert the device into the OBD II port. Once connected, the device’s red light will turn on.
6) Start your vehicle.
7) Turn on Bluetooth on your Phone, or click on “Please pair Thinkcar with your car” in the APP.Please note: There is no need to pair the Thinkcar in Bluetooth setting. Pairing occurs automatically when Bluetooth is turned on.
8) Once the device is paired, the red light will change to blue, and the APP will also show that the pairing is successful.
9) While using real-time dashboard display, OBD diagnosis, full system detection, remote diagnosis, or black box functions, the blue light will flash, letting you know there is communication between the device and APP.
10) The first time you use “Full OBD II Functions”, “Full Vehicle Modules Scan Health Report” or “Real Time Remote Diagnostics”, the APP will automatically download the diagnosis and detection software suitable for your vehicle. Software size is generally around 50M. Please make sure your smartphone is connected to a stable network. Or you can download the diagnosis and detection software suitable for your vehicle as “Full OBD II Functions”, “Full Vehicle Modules Scan Health Report” or “Real Time Remote Diagnostics”
11) Please note the engine must be turning on, to use Thinkcar device.
