How to use Launch X431 V 8 inch?

Launch X431 V review from a user tell you the how-to’s:

Package received. Each item was packed well in a box, incl the  X-431 V 8inch tablet, a password envelope, a scanner protection sleeve, a x431 v user manual, some connectors, looks good.

In the afternoon, i tested on the first car; it’s Skoda Rapid the 2016 year.

For the first time to use it, i went to Launch x431 v application via the tablet and registered it first, with the user name and pass

Then downloaded VW software to test Rapid 2016

Went to European, then VW

This Launch x431 V supports VW full system, incl. Power, chassis, body, info, seat & door, A/C,etc.

Next, plug the connector to the DLC socket on the car

Ps. The connection diagram from the manual

Then had a quick test for the car

Test result: all ok.


Also, i tried the special function… did a steering angle learning

steps as the tablet displays:

1 start the vehicle

2 drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at a speed not higher than 20km/h

3 while driving turn the steering wheel one turn to the right and one turn to the left

4 when having the steering wheel straight again stop the vehicle with the wheel’s pointed straight

5 ensure that the steering wheel is not moved again

6 keep the engine running and do not switch off the ignition

7 system voltage at least 12.0v

Mt thoughts:

If i rate my old Autel DS708 7/10, then the new version of 8-inch x431 v scan tool can be scored 9/10. The language and vehicle coverage is what i wanna share with all. x431 v has 23 languages available (it’s said to add more) and it’s very easy to change the setup language by users (no need any help from the factory; ds708 needs that). And the new x431 v covers almost full European and USA cars. Of course, no problem with Asian cars. And works good Brazilian, Indian, Malaysian cars also.

X431 V User Reviews:


Complex machine but very easy to learn with. Assists in solving many problems that elude the common do it yourself person. Has nearly paid for itself in the first couple uses.
Extremely fast shipping.


X431 V is excellent and by far the best one on the market for the money. It paid for itself in the first 2 weeks of use. Also the customer service you receive from this seller is excellent. I highly recommend this scanner and this seller.


$800 plus price tag on this item is a bit hard to swallow at first but once you get it and open the casing you will understand. The quality of X431 V matches its price point.
I purchased this to help a friend that was doing a manual transmission swap on his 2011 Nissan Cube. We swapped to a manual transmission ECM but the vehicle couldn’t start due to immobilizer issue. With this tool, I was able to program his keys immobilizers to the “new” donor car manual transmission ECM and write the chassis VIN to the donor ECM as well. Not even the Nissan Dealership was willing to do it for him and just took his money of diagnostic labor time of 1 hour and have him walk away with nothing to show for it. I had the car running in less than 30 minutes after this tool was fully setup


the launch x431 is very easy to use and fast results on my honda civic it works 100% i recommend it


I bought this scanner for diagnosis and to be able to program keys. The bi-directional controls seem to work on everything that I have tried. The key programming didn’t go as smoothly. I have a 2005 Jeep liberty with the key fob as part of the key. It programmed the keys, but not the fob. Tech support wasn’t able to help. They did try, but it didn’t work. Maybe in future updates, it will work. Overall, I’m satisfied with it.
