In Motor Mechanic magazine found this new diagnostic tool. Looking on the Ferrari forums, it seems geared up for them and Maserati. It says it can do zillions of things on Fiat/Alfa/Lancia, BMW/Mini, Mercedes, Renault, VAG. The claim is that if it can access an ECU it can do everything from code reading, actuation, adaption, key coding, recoding, programming etc etc. Has 2 channel scope built in.
I don't have a price in the UK but its 6,000 dollars in US.
Hi Mark, Seems similar on the claims. Not doing so well with the Autologic on the French program. The Renault is particularly poor. No Bosch MP 5.2 as in 306 XSi. Air temp on 05 Clio 1.5 dci is 6,222C and did not find a fault or code for a failed glow plug. Megane 1.6 16v on a Y reg, injector opening time was 256 m/s. Hmmm......... After a bit of shouting, think they are fixed now. Oh, and in the live data there is no guidance or specifications so you don't know if the value is correct. Even in the cheapo ACR4 you can get a lot of this info. Bit of work to do I think, but at £6,800 inc vat very poor overall.
Just a final update. Sent the Autologic back for full refund. The French program is very poor. Virtually no vans on it and couldn't isolate an immobiliser problem on an 04 Relay. In fact couldn't read the van at all, not even the engine!!! This has been launched 2 years too early I think. Anyway, my £300 Citroen Lexia (made by Actia) did it okay.
