We diagonse even the trickiest problems.
Today’s cars are complicated.
When they fail, they require diagnosis by trained technicians using up-to-date factory-level diagnostic equipment. We have over 15 diagnostic scanners.
|Mercedes-Benz||Compact 3||Touch-screen diagnostic system|
|Mercedes-Benz||SDS||Diagnostic software on an IBM T-30 laptop computer|
|BMW||GT1||Factory BMW scan tool diagnostic V56 programming V32|
|Autologic||Dealer-level scan tool, with tech support|
|Programa Tools||PC Retriever||This tool clones the factory BMW tool, through BMW's website for diagnosing and programming and is also a very capable Volvo scanner. ISTA and ISATP for programming|
|Mongoose||Bluelink||Scanner and j2534 programmer|
|Bluelink||Adapter||C.A.N. analyzer, passthrough programmer using j2534 protocol|
|Snap-On||Modis||C.A.N. breakout box|
|Strategic Tools||Factory BMW scan tool diagnostic V56 programming V32|
|Ross-Tech||VAG-COM||VW and Audi scanner|
|VAG-Tacho||VW and Audi key and immo (immobilizer) programmer|
|Launch||X431 Diagun||Wireless scanner|
|Volvo||Vida Dice||Scan program|
|Drew-Technologies||J2534||Online Programing and Coding|
|Ford||VCM||IDS for diagnosing|
Here we use our Mercedes Compact 3 scanner to reactivate the SBC braking system on a 2006 Mercedes CLS550 219 chassis vehicle. (4/29/2009)
We begin each car’s diagnostic session with a general diagnosis.
Then we "drill down" to analyze specific problems.
This is the Autologic scan tool. It works very well with Land Rover and BMW vehicles, as well as others. This slideshow illustrates its use on a BMW.
Some modern cars employ active suspensions
They have no springs, conventional shock absorbers, or anti-sway bars. We use a dealer level computer to diagnose these systems and put them through their paces.
In this video clip, notice the cable that connects the car to our computer; commands are sent on this cable from our computer (on the cart) to the car's suspension components. The car's supension sensors report success or failure in executing the computer's commands.
