New “Vehicle Check Up” Software Function
“Vehicle Check Up” is introduced in Version 29 of IDC4 Truck – an exciting new function to diagnose all control units of many models from the main brands. In supported vehicles all ECUs can be diagnosed in just one operation without having to examine each system individually.
This function is an important new feature within the multi-brand diagnostic tool industry and, even with respect to the still active TGS2, it expands, enhances and simplifies workshop work. Key features include:
- Verify the models of the control units in the vehicle’s electronic system, even if the are not supported by the self-diagnosis.
- A quicker reading of the error memory (from 3 to 20 times faster).
- Check of the ‘active’ or ‘stored’ status of each error in each control unit.
- Access, when available, to the “error help” functions with the related repair procedures.
- Selection and display of only one specific group of control units (even only one at a time).
- Deletion of errors from the memory without having to physically reconnect the control unit at issue.
The same function is also available for Wabco & Knorr/Bremse Trailer/Semi-trailer EBS braking systems. For this category of vehicles, the function is called EBS Check up “Complete Scan + Error Reading” and it offers the same efficiency.
While TEXA tries its best to keep its “old generation” diagnostic tools updated through an active subscription (for example NAVIGATOR MOBILE and TRIBOX with A-DIA module), the electronics in modern vehicles are often very complex and require diagnostic tools with advanced technological features. For this reason, for some new systems, some advanced diagnostic operations are not available using “old generation” tools.
IDC4 will provide this error if you try to access an unavailable function: “This function is not supported on the selected tool”
