Electronic data has always been an important aid to workshops.
Nowadays, with electrical systems and advanced technologies becoming an ever more significant feature in modern cars, it has become essential.
At its heart sits Vehicle Electronics Smart Assistant MK II (VESA™).
An innovative electronics diagnostics application
Probably unrivalled in the aftermarket arena, VESA is an innovative electronics diagnostics application.
It is based on vehicle CAN Bus data and helps technicians diagnose faults and component errors.
It takes a manufacturer's often bewildering and unfamiliar wiring schematic, converts it to a clearer, more readable format and then zooms in on the component and wiring under consideration.
- Diagnostics wizard
- Wiring diagrams for engine management, ABS and ESP
- Wiring diagrams for EPS, air conditioning, climate control
- Fault codes (manufacturer's and EOBD)
- Fault code link to Smart module
- Component and grounding point location
Clear, ‘localised’ wiring schematics
Clear, ‘localised’ wiring schematics for all key vehicle features, with wire and component trace functionality for fast, efficient, first-time fixes.
- Wiring diagrams covering electrical systems/components, e.g. door locks, windows, windscreen/headlight wash/wipe, airbags, exterior lights, starting and charging
- Pan and zoom functionality
- Highlight functionality to trace corresponding wires and components
Clear fuse location and identification feature
The electronics module is packed with essential information, typified by this clear fuse location and identification feature.
Fuse boxes may be installed in various locations on a vehicle, making them more difficult to find.
Using the data in Fuses and Relays minimises the time spent searching.
Fuse locations are also accessible directly from the wiring diagram.
- Fuse and relay box locations
- Fuse and relay overview
An extensive list of possible warning lights
Specific to each manufacturer, with a short description and solution.
- Make-specific overview of available warning lights
- Covering both the European and the US car parc
Battery: procedures for disconnection and reconnection
Disconnecting and reconnecting a battery used to be a straightforward task.
In modern vehicles, the procedure is more complicated.
The technician needs to know what procedures to follow after reconnecting a battery.
This will prevent the customer having to return the vehicle to the workshop due to errors in systems such as parking assistance or power windows.
Due to the growing number of hybrid vehicles on the market, technicians also need specific instructions on how to work safely on these vehicles.
Other available procedures:
- High-Voltage Circuit: Deactivation
- Start/Stop System: Deactivation/Activation
Reduce unbillable hours
