Injector Solenoid Test using Caterpillar ET Software

How to perform: Injector Solenoid Test using CAT ET Software (CAT Engine)?
The purpose of the injector solenoid test is to diagnose injector wiring and injector solenoid functionality.

-Connect Caterpillar ET to your Laptop,
-Open Menu: “Diagnostics – Diagnostic Test – Injector Solenoid Test”
Example: CAT Engine – C11

Injector - Solenoid - Test - 1

NOTE: Injector Solenoid Test cannot be performed while the engine is running.

-Click “Power All” and wait the process until complete (Mode: powered), from Cylinder 1 to Cylinder 6.
-On Menu “Test Results”, all the results are OK, indicates that Solenoid Injector still on good condition.

Injector - Solenoid - Test - 2

NOTE:
-This test identifies an open circuit or a short circuit in the circuit for the injector solenoids. The test activates the injector solenoids one at a time while the engine is not running. A good solenoid will create an audible click when the solenoid is activated. Heavy Duty Diagnostic tool Cat ET indicates the status of the solenoid as “OK”, “Open”, or “Short”.

What diagnostic adapter do you prefer (Read 10626 times)

Tell you what adapter people use most. Here are views after the vote in the forum dedicated to all’s favorite adapter to share pros and cons and learn tips and tricks.

Here is my 2cents or 2.03cents Canadian on Diagnostic Interfaces.

DG Tech DPA4 or 4+: #2 Choice Metal case makes it durable (must use original USB cable to take advantage of USB port protection)

Nexiq USB-Link: #1 Choice can also be used with toyota techstream and isuzu IDSS (Must be very careful to not break the usb port on older style)

Nexiq Magikey: Was the best back in the day (Need a PC with printer port to connect)

Nexiq LiteLink: Works with Snapon Modis (older J1708 Data Bus only)

Cummins Inline: RP1210a compliant for apps other than Cummins Insite (Doesnt work well with all rp1210a applications)

Movimento/Navlink: Only way to connect to TCU via IDS on Ford/Int LCF/CF Trucks??? (Freezes using servicemax on some laptops)

Navistar IC4: Small durable adapter (Bad customer support, hard to find drivers, USB cable is part of adapter)

Older PF-Diagnose adapter (B&B Electronics): Small durable adapter (serial cable connection)

Eaton Wireless: Long wireless range (intermittent data loss even at close range)

Noregon DLA: #3 Choice alternative to Nexiq and Dearborn (Large size/odd shape)

Caterpillar II: Only way to connect to some offroad equipment with CDL data Bus (Need PC with printer port)

This is just my opinion on the CAT Caterpillar ET above based on personal use.

There are other adapters available and other peoples results/opinions may differ.

Cat Et Factory Password Keygen

Cat-Et-Factory-Password-Keygen-1

This version will give you 1-200 reason for All CAT Equipment.

Many job-critical tasks can be performed with an electronic service tool.

The user can display the status of a group of parameters (temperatures, pressures, etc.) simultaneously, view active and clear logged diagnostics, display the current configuration of an ECM and much more. The service tool works with a communication adapter to allow connection to an ECM. The version and identification of the ECM is automatically retrieved and is displayed on a summary screen when the program is started. Diagnostic tests and calibrations can also be performed.

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

Revoke License Scenario 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
Serial Number SS099947 must be revoked and replaced because Technician Bob who held the license was issued a new computer
-or –
Serial Number SS099947 must be revoked and replaced because Technician Bob who held the license is no longer employed by the dealership
After Serial Number SS099947 is revoked, SS099947 can be assigned to a NEW user because SS099947 has a NEW activation ID
