How to use Automotive Diagnostic Scanners by Tracy Martin
on 12 February 2012
I bought this to accompany a U281 OBD-2 CAN-BUS CODE SCANNER VW/AUDI/SEAT/SKODA CAR. As it transpired the book was of little use to me as I had a problem with an Airbag System Fault which the book does not cover - it's a pity that the listing for the book didn't make it clear that it only covered engine management, not SRS, ABS or Transmission. Having now used the scanner and repaired the airbag system fault, given the amount of information available on-line I doubt if the book would be really all that useful in the event of an engine management fault. When I completed the scan, it identified a coolant system fault on the engine system which I didn't know was there. I used the scanner to reset the fault, I didn't need to use the book. The book includes some background information about the development & introduction of micro-processor based engine management systems, but from an American perspective.
