Note: The scan tool doesn't perform the leak test, but signals to the vehicle's onboard computer to initiate the test. The vehicle manufacturer determines the criteria and method for stopping the test once it has been started. Refer to the vehicle's service repair manual to determine the procedures necessary to stop the test.
