Step 2: Enter the unit’s Bluetooth application, and set its paring code to the same as the OBDII scanner’s. ( Normally, our OBDII device’s code would be 1234 or 0000.) Then click the search button on the Bluetooth menu, the OBDII will be found and shown on the available device. Click the data sync button on the other page of the Bluetooth menu.
