Here’s a sharing user experience about Vident iLink450 Full Service Tool of veteran controls engineer from the USA. Compared with Vident iLink400 full-system scanner, this scan tool is specially designed for professional technicians and vehicle repair shops with its main functions ranging from EPB, Oil Service, ABS & SRS Reset, Battery Configuration, SAS Calibration, DPF regeneration to TBA.
Concluded views in parts from Mr. Tesla from Impala Forums:
Part 1. Package
A few photos of the box.
The carrying case is a nice zippered one, included with the iLink450, along with a shot of the contents of the case. The CD contains the Setup program for the PC-based application. The cable is used to connect the unit to your PC, and the white gizmo is a micro-SD, which can be used to update the software in this device.
Part 2. Features
The Vident iLink450 is an excellent selection for anyone on a budget who is interested in a full-service scan tool. I was particularly interested in a unit that ‘s able to perform automated brake bleeds, and this one does have that capability and meet my needs. It can perform many functions apart from reading and resetting codes. The iLink450 is a standalone unit, but is capable of recording live data.
Part 3. Installation
It’s very simple to install application on my laptop. I inserted the disc, selected my language, and clicked Install.
A desktop icon titled iScanzilla was automatically created as part of the software installation. After completing initial startup of the application, I was instructed to create a free user account, which also doubled to register the warranty for my unit. Then I could update both the scan tool and the PC software.
Part 4. Operation
The first is a picture of the main screen. The three function buttons (F1 … F3) below the screen are programmable.
I selected the ABS & SRS option → Electronic Brake Control → Special Functions to see what was there.
You can see Automated Bleed option reside in the Special Functions screen.
Out of interest, I selected this option to see what came next. I got a detailed instructions about how to proceed.
Then I backed out of the Brake Bleed procedure and selected the ABS Motor option.
It showed all sorts of data regarding the ABS.
After browsing the data displayed, I backed out and unplugged the tool from the OBDII service port.
