You'll rarely need that.
I can find another end if it becomes an issue anyway.
with these clones, you will want to plug it into AC power to keep it running if you need to have it stay on while starting the vehicle, the power module used in these clones does not keep it running when the voltage drops. you can buy a module that fixes that but it takes some work to get it installed and then it still might not fix the issue or you risk screwing it up not have a working tech2
Thanks, Luckily my ac adapter works perfectly
Haven't tried the cigarette lighter cord on mine. I've just been hooking up to AC power.
I tried that once and it still re-booted.
I came across this...
I found that if I use the cigarette lighter cord, but connect that to a lithium jump pack I can restart the engine without a reboot of the Tech 2.
That's because the ac needs to be plugged into the bottom of the tech2 not on the obd adapter
This!! ^^^ I think I may have had the power cord plugged into the cable and not the VCI module.
