We wanted to see how well this new Autel ms908CV tool works, so we put it to the test against the best multi-brand diagnostic tool on the market. We go through everything on the Autel including total vehicle scan, fault codes, bi-directional commands, and more.
I am here today, we are hooked up to a 2017 Peterbilt with a car engine. I want to tell you how this works with the Autel scanner. So we first entered the commercial truck world system on the Intel maxi sis commercial vehicle. This is how good all the new automatic options are. So the way you work is that you will first enter here.
You basically go in and tell it how to read the VIN number and Try to figure out what you are trying to adjust my camera where we go. So we will be doing various things in real time here so one of the things. I don’t like this tool is that it took a little time so there it reads we are going to click The VIN number is ok and it will encode the VIN number. So you will notice it’s first thing it didn’t appear right. It’s called 1987 Detroit, this is the 2017 Pat car engine so we just need to click Yes, Then use the auto-scan button, which is a part that takes longer. I think it should really compare with us.
The kind next to Texas Artur makes you side-by-side comparison. This scan takes a little time, so What we want to do in the video is that we have to fast forward and come to the end here, we will add in the actual time. Point it needs to do a full vehicle scan, so it’s now scanning everything through, but anyway, good to go fast forward things are good now, because you can see it now it took a little time there but it really does it really Filling in something.
So the question is, what does it mean to fill this SAE standard?
Every truck in the world has such general information that you can read with any type of code or that is not important, the next two programs are What makes us still look at the diesel injection of the Pat card, so what we are trying to figure out is what level of functionality we have there so let us enter here and let us see what we are, even if we did the scan, I can It took a bit to find it, so let’s go to the ECU Info tab.
This information looks very good. It actually presents the correct VIN number part number and Pat car software version and all these things I want just a door fault code. The page let us see what the code is pulling up so we got four code it tells them to be alive Still inactive which is fine, here the freeze box button is not really lightened or anything then this search so there is no fix information here they do is they have a search button you can click, this will do what this will be on google It will search your code for Peter Bildt ttct zero or two, and try to give you something on Google.
The repair information is obviously lacking, but it is better than nothing, so let’s go one step further, this is We are there so we have to go back, now we have to try this SCR system, see what is different here, let us enter that guy, okay, I click on it again, okay, then it’s okay, so now it says EPA 10 or 13 this is An absolute EPA 13 so let’s go there let us see that we get an ECU information so once again more information about the emissions system it is taking it as a wrapper and my MX imaging and all the trouble code you should have us.
The exact same fault code again, what do we have to really do anything except we know that there is a code that escapes at the same time The real-time data here they actually have very good data all the things they have broken down into groups so if we get here and we click on the overview after treatment it will actually extract a list of all the codes that contain you after the treatment system is not Code I am sorry that the live sensor values are correct, you can draw them by reading them and do all sorts of things to do all sorts of things so if you want to read a bad one let me do this one here, So you want to put the chart ch art you can easily change it to do so pretty pretty gadget parameters read it again parameters are not too much you know the real problem is the feature active test we can do five commands so no Terrible, you know it’s not very good, we can do the biggest regenerative DPF we can do, let’s see if we can really get into it or even the truck is not running.
I don’t plan to do it here, so basically say that the conditions are met. We have to start the engine and do all the things we won’t do, so I will evade it. It looks like it is like it would do it. We don’t actually have Test to see if it works, but at least the command here, so let’s assume it has only five commands, so it’s not too scary we didn’t read the last tool. Oops, you will quit at the end of the day. We don’t read it. Not reading ABS. Instead of reading the cab controller.
I don’t know what other computers are, but we have to use the text of the tool neck to try, so here is a short pause, we will hang our text tools on the same truck, so stick to everyone Tyler used these two laptops. We just talked about the UH tail tool. If you are watching the UH tail video, we get the exact same engine charter on the same truck, and the VIN label 2016 it was in 2016 11 Made in the month, so it is actually 2017, I will navigate to the place we need to go to such a heavy American, this is a Peter Bilt sorry that I do this mouse left scorpion here Peter Bilt you can hit the VIN number to find If you want to pull up VIN just to see what it will do, but it basically only chooses to tell you what engine you have. We chose a car engine. We click on the system scan and then we hit the next one. It’s easier for us to capture the laptop and pull it to the back of the truck, because it’s easier for us to shoot because The tools are wireless, auto one is also a bit forgotten to mention in the previous video so our ones are our tail unit sitting there we will stop scanning so what is being done now it is very similar to that tail unit, but You will find it much faster.
It is basically the whole truck trying to figure out what the engine is. What model abs transmits the cab controller to the whole thing so you remember on the UH telling unit it really only picked up two computers Used for engines and some general sae stuff, these are worthless, but anything can do this. Let’s continue to look at this thing almost completely scanned here so you know Attell we have to be fast in the video Go ahead, yes, we work in the store here with various background noises I just have to finish it so just finished, no matter what it will take, it will take a few minutes to run one. You ask the full scan so I did a lot of trying to figure out where it is What is the year, so the first thing is to let us check the diesel injection method, this tool is good Yes, you can hit the DTC and detect it telling it I don’t know what they are, but it tells it to have the code, so we can click on it and then we can press this button here and enter the system just fine so now we actually To connect to that particular engine ECU let us see how good it is or how it compares to Attell, because yes, if no one has used the tool, you know it is actually not that bad, or he gave us Code, you can see all the data, we can run four or five commands that look like some very common commands, but we are missing something, so let’s find out so first all the parameters are very similar to the eyes telling me.
There are 82 of this particular ECU I can get into here and double click on any of these and the graphics they are like the fault screen of that unit, you can see that we implement the code you are extracting now than we use Attell and text as a couple of advantages More, so let’s take a small thing like a frozen frame, for example, on the Pat car code. What you do is get a little freeze-frame button here, this will tell you what these sensors are showing you when these code settings, so that when you try to solve intermittent problems or work abnormally, this information may be very good The great gadget text has some built-in fix information, so I can click on the help button and you will see that it will actually give you a very good page, fix the code on different things so not only So, but if I double click the code of Heavy Duty Scanner.
I got p0 one or two we have built our own repair software, you can get all the kits for free, tell you how to solve it so I have to choose I have chosen PACCAR I will choose 2013 emissions and the code is p0 pair One we just double click on it. You can read all the information you want to know about the code. Maybe you need to solve a lot of good information. You can tell everything you need to know about that piece of code. Let’s go back to the ECU information that the same employee saw on Attell so now let’s talk about activation and setup so that this screen has only one Delete Aires setting.
We have a few things you don’t see another ejector codeine This EGR D rate disables importance when I package her engine Indy rate or limp mode you have to solve the problem, then run the command to get rid of the limp mode turbocharger actuator replacement, there are more commands we will also Tell you that this package actually has two ECMs in one second. I want to show you something else, so they didn’t pull the table. So the first cab controller in your cab also has a computer in these newer Peterbilts and in turn controls everything that happens there, you know most people obviously know but the Attell machine just didn’t pick it up without reading the code I don’t know how to handle it, so we’ll tell you what we can do with the text tool, so we’ll give it a bit of connectivity here. We’re basically doing something at this point. Some package car engines are completely bidirectional. You can have a lot of commands to run it usually from 2013 to 16 ish. Usually they have it today. There are some small things to say that there is a new variant of the hand visible, just click the confirmation button to blow it but now we get our Code, so you will see that they all have a lot of inactive code yellow. These are invalid codes used with the cab guitar, so the cab controller reads your engine drive and puts everything in it, but We can figure out what these are, again, this does have some
I am sorry there is a freeze frame data there, so we can upgrade it, but more importantly we can double click on the code where the DTC 90 109 dtc 2 8 409 take time is good again, we have any repair information we have in I have it in the dtc solution, so I will go back to our software, I choose the body controller, just give it a second here. We are a bit using the beta version of this new program we just got so so you can pass here again List, see if you try to find what you are looking for, or you can obviously enter the small search button here, but let’s go to the 8:09 power output and let us know what the code is and why it is set and provide the tool again. Never expire and then the only command you can do is to clear the code, so we will quit there, if we want, we can also go here to the ABS system and connect to that without too much exciting to you Show
I just want to quit, because there is still a computer that can connect to you, how do you know how to reach it so diesel fuel injection has one for the STR system, so we just fell in love with this PCI system, this SCR system is another And there are more commands there, so I have to confirm that we are going to log in to this one, so this one takes a second. It tries different bus buses. You can think that your computer is a big network and you are at high speed. There are different lanes on the road, so the bus one lane one can be the bus two lanes can be the bus three lanes three campus general general engine can bus two general? All other BS cab controller HVAC transmission, but now in Campus III is the new one they added and some original equipment manufacturers have moved traffic from the engine to the canvas three, so exiting a bit must be done by looking at all the buses and figuring out the location of the traf fic.
Here, we see again that these are the same code you saw before the 67 parameters. It is important to activate so you are doing more testing here. You need to be able to run all the AdBlue commands on the truck when you are out. Seeing some other important fuel metering modules is obviously an important fuel doze test important level command. You can click on the small question mark on any of these buttons, they will tell you what happened to these commands, I don’t know if I don’t remember seeing Everything in the hotel tool I can click to set, and here are some other things, such as no DPF filter can do a strong regens you research this ash load and more of these commands so in a nutshell you compare the two you know If you don’t know this better this autel tool actually you know it can hook up to read the code to do some basic stuff but when you jump up the price and go to another tool you obviously can see there one at this time Functional levels at www.obd2tool.com vary widely.
