OIL SPECS AND RESETS
Quick Lookups are an integrated Wi-Fi function that provides up-to-date OEM information on your diagnostic tool, via a wireless network connection to the Snap-on network over the internet.
Please note the following:
- Vehicle coverage for Quick Lookups is the same as the Scanner vehicle coverage
- Not all vehicles may have onboard diagnostic tool reset capabilities, or have information available
- To use the Quick Lookups feature you must have the current software upgrade installed on your diagnostic tool
- The diagnostic tool is equipped with the ability to connect to a Wi-Fi network. However, the connection is solely dedicated to the Snap-on network. Before you begin using an integrated Wi-Fi function, you must turn on the Wi-Fi and select the wireless network connection
- If you experience a wireless network connection loss, Quick Lookups information will not refresh or may cause the function to stop. To continue use, you must re-establish your Internet connection
- Performance may vary depending on your wireless network equipment and Internet Service Provider
To access the Quick Lookups, select “Quick Lookups” from the home screen.
Oil Specs and Resets allows you quick access to the following OEM information:
Fluid capacity and specifications,
Scanner functional resets, plus service reset procedures and information.
First, identify the vehicle. In our case, we chose a 2014 Dodge Challenger. Instructions and screens vary by vehicle.
Fluid Capacity displays OEM recommended fluid specifications and is the default screen.
Typical information may include:
- Vehicle engine information
- Oil capacity specifications with or without oil filter
- Oil rating, weight and type, and special notes
Selecting Functional Reset opens the service interval reset menu (within the Scanner function) for the selected vehicle, and includes functional resets for the oil service indicator and other supported resets.
Select the applicable menu option(s) to perform the functional reset, in our case Reset Oil Change Indicator. Read and perform any instructions provided. Not All resets apply to all vehicles.
Selecting Reset Procedure displays OEM oil service reset instructions. Typical information may include:
Step-by-step instructions for manually resetting the oil service reset indicator using onboard vehicle functionality (such as instrument controls cluster, accelerator pedal, information or media center controls, multi-function switch.)
Special notes, and or instructions and theory of operation
Use the scroll function to scroll through the procedure.
TIRE AND WHEEL SERVICE
Next is the Tire and Wheel Service menu.
The default screen is TPMS Reminder reset procedures, showing you any manual reset procedures that may be required on the TPMS system.
Press the Removal and Installation icon to see tire mounting and dismounting info and TPMS Sensor installation info.
If there are pictures, you can tap on them and zoom in using the “+” and “-” icons.
Press the Functional Reset icon.
Completing vehicle resets that require a scan tool, choose system test. On this vehicle, let’s select “System Tests.”
This brings up a menu for programming the individual tire sensors.
Press the Tire Fitment icon to see tire fitment specifications. Typical information provided is standard and optional tire sizes, inflation pressures, and wheel nut torque.
