 When iOBD2 is power on for the first time, if it does not communicate with the car within Waiting Time, and battery voltage is below the Limiting Voltage, it will go to sleep mode. The default waiting time is 15 minutes. This parameter can be modified.

 When the battery voltage is below the Limiting Voltage and within 5 minutes there is no communication between iOBD2 and the car, iOBD2 will go into sleep mode. When the battery voltage is above the Limiting Voltage, it will wake up. The default Limiting Voltage is 12.6V. This parameter can be modified.

When iOBD2 is connected with the car for the first time, you can diagnose the car within 15 minutes. If there is no any diagnostic operations over 15 minutes, iOBD2 will automatically go into sleep mode. Only when the battery

voltage is above the Limiting Voltage, or the actual waiting time is shorter than the setting Waiting Time, can iOBD2 wake up.
