Revoke Licenses – SIS Serial Number Recycling

Beginning in September 2015 SIS DVD or SIS Network serial numbers will be RECYCLED after a license is Revoked & Replaced Auto Diagnostic tool

Caterpillar SIS software vendor bills Cat based on a count of Active Serial Numbers

New serial numbers issued to current users inflates the user count after a revoke and replacement of a SIS DVD license

Recycling serial numbers will help reduce cost to Cat which is passed on to Cat dealers.

Revoke Licenses – SIS Serial Number Recycling
When SIS DVD or SIS Network licenses are revoked and REPLACED the revoked serial number will be RECYCLED with a new Activation ID

CAT ET Serial Numbers WILL NOT BE RECYCLED
This change affects SIS DVD or SIS Network ONLY

What Does it Mean & How Do I Figure Out What it Is

10

We have all had our check engine light come on and think the worst. Well just because the light came on doesn’t mean there is a monumental disaster around the corner. In fact, most of the time, it is something small such as a faulty o2 sensor or your gas cap is on incorrectly. There are two different ways your check engine light warns you. First is a steady light; this indicates not an emergency, but still important enough to make an appointment. Second is flashing, this usually means there is a severe problem. If this happens, stop your vehicle immediately to avoid further damage. Don’t stress, you can find out exactly what is going on by using an (On Board Diagnostics) OBD2 Scanner, or you can go to your local auto repair shop.

An Auto Scanner Diagnostic Tool can help you retrieve the error codes that trigger your check engine light. These codes are defined specifically and are either (generic) universal or manufacture specific and there are five digits. I will explain them briefly below.
1st Digit: signifies the system the trouble code is related to.
B = Body C = Chassis P = Powertrain U = Undefined
2nd Digit: signifies whether it is manufacturer specific or generic.
1 = Enhanced (manufacturer specific) and 0 = Generic (the # not the letter “O”)
3rd Digit: signifies the sub system the code pertains to.
1 = Emission Management Air or Fuel 2 = Injector Circuit Air or Fuel 3 = Misfire or Ignition 4 = Emissions
5 = Idle Control & Vehicle Speed 6 = Output Circuit & Computer 7 = Transmission 8 = Transmission
What are the Most Common Check Engine Light Problems

There are a handful of problems that are the usual suspects of the dreaded Check Engine Light. The first being your gas cap. If it is not properly attached it can cause your check engine light to illuminate. The second culprit is your O2 sensor. If the sensor is malfunctioning or broken, it can effect your emissions and reduce gas mileage. Third would be your Mass Air Flow sensor. This Professional Automotive Diagnostic Tool is responsible for supplying the right amount of air to your engine allowing for proper fuel distribution. Spark Plugs are also a common factor when your check engine lite is on. Your spark plugs ignite the compressed gas within your engine, when there is spark plug failure damage to the catalytic converter can happen. Additionally it can affect your engines overall performance and fuel economy. Your check engine light can alert you to more problems than I have discussed here. So if you are experiencing check engine light problems check get the codes from an OBD II Scanner Tool or visit your local auto repair shop to diagnose your vehicle’s trouble codes.

The 5 Top Reasons You Need an OBD Scanner On Board

Empire auto care Car Services Repair

Many things that can go wrong with your car, even if it’s brand new. Sometimes an engine component will malfunction, and you’ll need to understand what’s happened to get it fixed. That’s where an OBD scan tool comes in.

An OBD scanner is a tool that mechanics, auto parts stores, and vehicle manufacturers use to test the mechanics and computer functions in a vehicle. The tool is plugged into your car or truck, then it scans the system for errors.

After that, the scanner provides detailed information so you know how to repair the problem. Sometimes, it’s as simple as ignoring the error message because it was triggered by mistake; other times, it indicates a serious issue with your engine.

Whatever the result of the scan, your OBD tool will give you valuable peace of mind as you drive. With winter in full swing and uncertain road conditions, the last thing you want is to be stranded in the cold.

In many situations, you’ll be very happy you invested in a handy scanner. Here are five of the biggest.

1. Check Engine Light Turns On

If you paid attention during driver’s education, you’ll recall there’s a variety of lights and indicators on the dashboard, but the scariest is the check engine light. When that indicator blinks on, you were told to pull over as soon as possible and get the problem diagnosed.

Typically, you need to head to the nearest mechanic shop or auto parts store to check the error code and plan for repair. There are a couple of problems with this approach, however.

The first is that you may be in a remote location without a store nearby. It could also be a weekend or the middle of the night, when none of these facilities are open.
You run a risk of damaging your vehicle if you continue to drive it with the check engine light on. In some cases, it could be a non-immediate problem such as a loose gas cap, but in others, it could be your spark plugs, which can lead to more serious damage the longer you drive.

When you have an OBD scanner, you can diagnose the problem wherever you are, whether a freeway shoulder in the middle of nowhere or your driveway. You can read the error code and learn whether it’s safe to drive the car to a mechanic, or you should call a tow to prevent further damage.

The check engine light is not something to trifle with, and your Professional Diagnostic Tool will give you quick and accurate answers.
2. Cold Weather Concerns

When the temperatures drop below freezing, several things can happen to your vehicle. The battery can die, gas caps can loosen, and your tire pressure can go haywire.

These conditions can cause all sorts of warning indicators to light up your dashboard, including the check engine light. Obviously, that’s cause for concern.

You can make sure your vehicle is in tip-top condition for driving with an OBD scan tool. Any time a warning light flickers on, you’ll have the tool stored in your glove compartment for easy diagnostics.

It will check for key indicators like warning lights, fuel system pressure, engine temperature, exhaust emission levels, throttle response, idle speed, and other key metrics that can show problems in colder temperatures.

Then you’ll know what to have repaired and whether the vehicle’s safe to drive.

3. Your Car or Truck Dies in the Middle of Nowhere

Usually, if your vehicle dies during a long drive, you won’t know the exact reason. By popping the hood, you’ll only see problems that are on the surface. Usually, you need diagnostics to see something deeper.

An OBD scanner can help. Although it might not render specifics about the cause of a malfunction, it can clue you into such things as fuel system pressure and battery levels. It will give you information that can be useful for determining your next step … and in some cases, you may be able to fix it on the spot.
4. You’re Strapped for Cash

The average American spends around 1.5 percent of annual income on auto repairs. That averages to about $600 per car in the U.S., but the number is just an average.

Many people end up spending thousands for vehicle repairs in a year because their vehicle is older and needs more care. The sad thing? Many of the most expensive vehicle repairs can be fixed at home if the owner has the right tools and a decent YouTube tutorial.

An Car Diagnostic Scanner is one of those essential tools, and you can get a decent one for as little as $20. If owning such a tool saves you $600 on car repairs because you were able to diagnose the problem and fix it yourself, you’ll be more than grateful you made the initial investment for a scanner.
5. Manufacturer Recalls

reasons you need a obd2 scanner

It’s always a little unnerving when you receive a letter or phone call from your vehicle manufacturer that reports a mass recall of your vehicle’s make and model. Usually, the recalls involve a small and harmless malfunction, but occasional outliers could inflict serious harm on you and the car’s occupants.

Your OBD scanner test for the problem. You can determine whether you should be concerned about your vehicle right away or it can wait a while for the repair. Some factory recalls can take months to address, and you don’t want to drive a car or truck that could “blow up” at any moment.

An Automotive Scan Tool is not only a practical investment, but it buys you peace of mind. For less than $100, you’ll have a car repair tool in your arsenal that will save you money and clue you in on potentially serious issues.

Autel Maxisys Elite is worth buying

28-1

Coming from a snap on verus decided to look for a new Car Diagnostic Tool that would not break my wallet and decided to take it for a spin.

I could do everything the verus can do and more since it comes with the passthrough, performs bi directional tests even turn on the wippers or honk the horn. Every test imaginable can be made with the maxisys pro or elite for 1/3 of the price of a new verus.

Only real downside is that you have a troubleshooter in the verus scanner and with the autel you have a forum where you post every problem or doubt and other members of the autel comunity will help and give you solutions to your problems. Not a big problem but easily resolved with mitchell or all data.

Ive had a maxisys pro since it can out it has performed flawlessly , perfect. I own a small repair shop ranging from american to import vehicle from gas to diesel (ford powerstroke & dodge cummins) and have never had problems.

When you buy it new you will get 1 year of unlimited updates to new tests or new vehicle info after registering your scan tool on the autel pro page .

After that year you will go to the pro autel page and simply pay the fee for another year update. For the pro its 1,299 yearly but its up to you. You dont have to pay it for the Autel MaxiSYS Elite to continue to work. I havent updated mine in almost 2 years and performs neat everyday.

Now i have acquired the new elite version of the pro with a new android better camera and with a faster processors. It just works. In all my 12 years as a tech ive used different scan tools and had never seen one as good as the maxisys pro and elite.

Now that i have both i will be giving the pro to my employee and the elite for me. Thank Autel for making such great products.

Ps. Customer service is a little hard to get in touch with but very helpful once you get in touch they do everything by phone or remote access

Feel free to make question anytime

28-2

So i received my elite scanner very quickly. Customer services contacted me by email to see if their product had met my expectation. I like the fact that they contacted me and i havent seen that before.
Now continuing on the scanner i will be posting photos of the differences between the new Elite and the Pro (wich i use everyday on my shop)

The screen is brighter because is retina display (much like an ipad).

The bootup process is very very faster than the pro. The pro aprox 30 secs of boot up and 5-8 secs on the elite.

It has one more usb that is very usefull for connecting a mouse or a keyboard.

On the outside you will see is much thinner, lighter and rubber protection (feels more like hard plastic but its rubber) on the sides not on the corners like the pro (which are real rubber).

On the top right corner there is a led light that indicates the battery life which is great when you have the screen off. On the pro you have to turn the screen on to see batery life.

The elite come with a docking station where you can charge it of leave it out of harms way.

Im very impressed with my purchace from CnAutotool.com. I hope this helps because when i purchased my pro the lack of information made me hold of a little bit but tool a leap of faith
