Chapter 1. Introduction 1.1. Notes on the manual This manual describes how to use the Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service program of the Volkswagen Group. The program is used in the field of workshop diagnosis. It allows vehicle control units to be identified and event memory entries to be read. It also supports vehicle repairs using guided fault finding. Functions such as test instrument support, flashing control units and vehicle self-diagnosis extend the range of applications. All important information and services of the Volkswagen group are available to you for your work via network connection to the group systems. Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service is intended for all brands of the Volkswagen group. To illustrate the significant workflows, such as diagnosis and flashing, the corresponding chapters include a graphical view showing which part of the process is just being described, what the previous step was and what is to do next.

Figure 1.1. Example of a diagnostic workflow

The complete diagnostic workflow is displayed in the example shown above. The diagnostic workflow consists of four parts, each consisting of the corresponding individual steps. In the figure, the currently described part is highlighted in red. The description of the individual parts with the individual steps is as follows:

Chapter 3. Installation This chapter deals with the process of installing Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service.

Note: If an older version of Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service is already installed on the device, it needs to be uninstalled first before starting to install the current Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service. To install, uninstall and configure Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service, administration rights are required for the operating system on the tester or laptop.

You have two installation options. The first option is online installation: Open the e-mail you received from eShop. Save the licence certificate from the e-mail to a folder of your choice. To access the corresponding installation file (setup.exe) on mirror server 2, click on the URL in the e-mail (make sure that you click on the version you ordered). Now save setup.exe to a directory of your choice. To start the Installation Wizard, double-click on the saved setup.exe file. The second option is offline installation: Save the licence certificate received via e-mail to a folder of your choice. Insert the DVD with the installation data in the drive. After the DVD starts, select the version you ordered. To start the Installation Wizard, click on the appropriate setup.exe file.

Note: During offline installation, it is important that you install the Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service version that corresponds to the order. If the setup.exe file of a different version is installed, it will not be possible to start the application, since the licence will not correspond.

Chapter 6. Diagnostic mode This chapter deals with the scope of functions in diagnostic mode.

6.1. Diagnostic workflow The typical workflow of a diagnostic session with Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service is described in the following chapters. A diagnostic session is characterised by the sections Diagnostic start-up, Test plan and special functions, Using fault finding (GFF) and Ending diagnosis.

Figure 6.1. Diagnostic start-up workflow

In the Diagnostic start-up section, the vehicle is connected and identified (GMD), login to the Group systems is performed, a corresponding order is selected from ElsaPro, the vehicle's control units are identified and, finally, the start of GFF is initiated. In the Test plan and special functions section, start modules and traversion tests are executed, the test plan is calculated automatically and adjusted manually via DISS and TPI, if necessary. At the end of this section, the test plan and special functions are available for guided fault finding. The focus of the Using GFF section is on the execution of GFF tests. In the End diagnosis section, a diagnostic session is completed by erasing the event memory, executing end modules and the option of giving feedback. In addition to this typical course of a diagnostic session, in diagnostic mode it is also possible to subsequently mark control units as installed, change control unit variants, check individual control units using guided functions or perform a complete self-diagnosis.

45

Diagnostic mode

6.2. Diagnostic start-up In the Diagnostic start-up section, the vehicle is connected and identified (GMD), login to the Group systems is performed, a corresponding order is selected from ElsaPro, the vehicle's control units are identified and, finally, the start of GFF is initiated.

49

Diagnostic mode

Note: Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service only provides the option of diagnosis and flashing for the licensed brands. Which vehicle models of this brand are available depends on the type of dealer of a brand in the licence. All vehicle models are available to a licensed authorised dealer, dealer type = H. Only EU vehicles are available to a licensed unaffiliated market participant, dealer type = U, of a brand. It is possible to check the contents of the licence in the administration area: See also "Administration/General/Licence info" An unaffiliated market participant must log on to the Group systems online at the start of a diagnostic or flash session to enable diagnostic or flash start-up. If login is cancelled, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service returns to the start screen. After login, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service displays the remaining duration of validity of the diagnostic flat rate in days and hours in the Information area of the user interface under Time remaining. In addition, the Actions tab and History tab are not available to the unaffiliated market participant.

During diagnostic start-up, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service checks the vehicle status according to the battery and ignition status: •

Is the battery connected (terminal 30 - battery voltage)?



Is a vehicle connected (terminal 30 - battery voltage)?



Is this vehicle's ignition switched on (terminal 15 - ignition)?

If no battery is connected, the No battery connected dialogue appears.

Diagnostic mode

The current progress of diagnostic start-up is shown at the bottom right of the user interface.

Figure 6.12. Status area example, determining the VIN

6.2.2. Basic characteristics dialogue (GMD) The next section describes the identification of a vehicle according to its basic characteristics.

Figure 6.13. GMD execution section

The main element is the Basic vehicle characteristics (GMD) dialogue.

Figure 6.14. Dialogue for selecting the basic vehicle characteristics

If the ignition status is OK, the vehicle identification number (VIN) is read out of the vehicle and the Basic vehicle characteristics dialogue appears for selecting the basic vehicle characteristics.

53

Diagnostic mode

The VIN can be corrected manually, if required, by switching the vehicle identification from automatic to manual. A detailed description of how to switch between automatic and manual is given below. Cancel: Vehicle identification, and thus diagnostic start-up, is cancelled. Whether guided fault finding is to be used during a diagnostic session or not is also decided using the basic characteristics dialogue.

Figure 6.15. Query for guided fault finding

With every diagnostic start-up, Work with guided fault finding is automatically set by default in the Basic vehicle characteristics dialogue. If this option is deselected a warning is displayed with information about the consequences. Only Self-diagnosis and Guided functions are available. Yes: The diagnostic session is resumed without guided fault finding. In this case, work can only be continued without an order. No: Diagnosis is resumed using guided fault finding. Reference: For more information on self-diagnosis, see chapter "Self-diagnosis". Vehicle identification for determining the GFF diagnostic data in the basic vehicle characteristics dialogue can be performed automatically or manually. Basic characteristics that are not determined clearly, need to be identified manually. If an error occurs during automatic identification, a message is displayed with the request for manual identification of the vehicle.

54

Diagnostic mode

Figure 6.16. Error during automatic identification

OK: Identification mode is switched to manual. Basically, there are two possible reasons why automatic identification failed: •

An error occurred while reading the VIN, e.g. due to a faulty control unit.



An error occurred while determining the diagnostic data corresponding to the VIN. The data pool is outdated or incorrect.

If an error occurs during automatic identification, you have the option of switching between automatic mode and manual mode. When switching from automatic mode to manual mode, all previously determined basic characteristics are retained but can be changed. However, if basic characteristics are changed, all previously selected characteristics will expire. When switching from manual mode to automatic mode, all basic characteristics entered manually as valid are retained. That means the validity of manually entered characteristics is automatically checked and adjusted, if necessary. For example, an invalid VIN is replaced by the VIN automatically read.

Figure 6.17. Entering the VIN manually

In manual mode, the plausibility of the entered VIN is checked, e.g. for its correct length (17 characters). There is no other technical check of the VIN. The manually entered VIN must be plausible for the manual identification of the vehicle to be continued. Otherwise, there are no restrictions and dependencies in terms of the selection of the vehicle characteristics provided.

Note: If a plausible but technically incorrect VIN is entered, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service might not provide purposeful tests for GFF due to missing requirements. The manual input of the VIN should therefore be performed carefully.

In automatic mode, it is no longer possible to change the vehicle identification number and the clearly determined basic characteristics.

55

Diagnostic mode

Vehicle identification is continued after determining the VIN. There are several pop-up menus in the Basic vehicle characteristics dialogue that allow you to choose from several proposals, if available.

Select the vehicle manufacturer in the Manufacturer pop-up menu.

The models for the manufacturer selected above are now shown in the Model pop-up menu.

After you have selected the model, select the model year for the selected vehicle in the Model year pop-up menu.

Once the model year has been selected, specify the model type in the Model type pop-up menu (e.g. saloon, estate, etc.).

Finally, select the vehicle engine in the Engine pop-up menu.

Note: The selection of the basic characteristics from the pop-up menus of GMD for unaffiliated market participants is limited toEU5 vehicles.

56

Diagnostic mode

Note: If the vehicle is changed during a diagnostic session, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service rereads the VIN and indicates the change of vehicle.

Every vehicle change is entered in the diagnostic log.

Note: The individual pop-up menus will not be active until a selection has been made in the pop-up menu above.

Click on Apply to accept the basic vehicle characteristics. The vehicle has been identified.

6.2.3. Login to Group systems The next step after identifying the vehicle is login to the Group systems.

Figure 6.18. Login to Group systems section

To login, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service opens a login window.

Figure 6.19. Login window to the Group systems

57

Diagnostic mode

Login takes place once per session. The global user ID and the password for access to the Group systems are required for login. Apply: The login data is sent to the Group systems. Cancel: The login data is discarded. Authorised dealers may repeat login at all times. This button is available in all views of Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service that obtain data from Group systems. It can be used to repeat login at all times. After login, access to services such as ElsaPro, CarPort, DISS etc. will be possible in the subsequent course of the diagnostic session.

Note: An unaffiliated market participant must login to the Group systems online at the start of a diagnostic or flash session to enable diagnostic or flash start-up. If login is cancelled, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service returns to the start screen. After login, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service displays the remaining duration of validity of the diagnostic flat rate in days and hours in the Information area of the user interface under Time remaining. In addition, the orders and vehicle history are not available to the unaffiliated market participant.

6.2.4. Selecting an order After login to the Group systems, an order is selected for the diagnostic session. It is also possible to work without an order, which is decided in this section.

6.2.5. Control unit identification After selecting the order, the identification of the control units starts. To do this, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service evaluates the gateway installation list first.

Figure 6.28. Identify control units section

If the vehicle is marked in the equipment network for CAN diagnosis, the gateway installation list is read with information on the communication protocol, the vehicle's target installation, the vehicle's actual installation and the current event memory status. If a difference between the target installation and the actual installation in the vehicle is identified according to the status information in the gateway installation list, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service opens a Check installation list window with the control units in the order provided by the gateway. This installation list can be sorted by diagnostic address, control unit name, coding status and installation status in the test window.

Figure 6.29. "Check installation list" dialogue

The installation status is indicated by these symbols: The target installation displayed corresponds to the actual installation.

65

Diagnostic mode

The target installation displayed corresponds to the actual installation. The target installation has been changed and not coded yet. The target installation displayed does not correspond to the actual installation. The target installation displayed does not correspond to the actual installation. The target installation has been changed and not coded yet. Close: The window is closed. The installation status can be edited via the coding status.

Figure 6.30. Editing the coding status

The coded or not coded setting can be edited. To do this, mark the control unit using the mouse and click on the coding status on the right to open the listbox for making a selection. Coded means that the control unit is included in the target installation. Not coded means that the control unit is not included in the target installation. Code: The changes to the coding setting are applied and the installation list is re-read. If there are still differences between the actual installation and the target installation, the dialogue is displayed again. Close: Checking of the installation is stopped and the existing code is accepted.

Note: For the following automatic identification of the control units, a reading plan is compiled, in which all control units are listed, which are addressed independently by the system during identification. The reading plan consists of information of the MCD project, the gateway installation list and the control unit nodes of the equipment network. The list is thus limited to those control units that are very probably installed in the vehicle.

66

Diagnostic mode

If control units indicated in the equipment network as correctly installed are not identified during automatic identification, it is possible to read them out again. The dialogue opens: Control units not identified (installed correctly).

Figure 6.31. "Control units not identified" dialogue

All control units that have not been identified are displayed in the left-hand field of the dialogue. By marking one or more control units and clicking on the direction arrow >, control units can be moved into the right-hand window to be identified again. Control units can also be moved into the left-hand window using < if repeated identification is not desired. Repeat reading: To start another attempt to read these control units, click on this button. If the control units are still not identified, the dialogue appears again. The list of control units then only includes those previously selected. Close: To close the dialogue and end repeated identification, click on this button.

6.3.1. Start modules, traversion tests, test plan calculation This section describes how Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service executes start modules and traversion tests and then creates the test plan.

Figure 6.51. Start modules, traversion tests, test plan calculation section

When guided fault finding is started, start modules and traversion tests are executed on the Process tab. These tests run in the background. During a traversion test, the control unit information read out is used to set the control unit variants. If a variant cannot be determined automatically or if a vehicle-specific characteristic is to be specified, a message is displayed with an appropriate selection. If several variants of individual control units are available in the context of the traversion tests, a dialogue for selecting variants appears.

Figure 6.52. Variant selection view

To select a control unit variant, click in the Variant field next to the corresponding control unit. A button appears that can be used to open the menu for selecting the variants. Set variant: The selected control unit variants are applied. After setting the control unit variants, the creation of the test plan starts.

reception available in coded form. These coded customer live statements are made up of fault objects (e.g. components), fault types (e.g. "rattling") and boundary conditions (e.g. temperature). The test programs in the test plan are listed in the guided fault finding, sorted from top to bottom by their potential success. There are several ways of creating and updating a test plan. More details on creating the test plan are available in these chapters: Creating a test plan during diagnostic start-up. Reference: See chapter "Diagnostic start-up" Creating a test plan by selecting the variant. Reference: See chapter "Diagnostic start-up variant button". Updating a test plan by re-reading the event memory. Reference: See chapter"Diagnostic start-up event memory". Test plan update via DISS / TPI. Reference: See chapter "Guided fault finding, DISS /TPI"

6.3.2. DISS / TPI This section describes how the creation of the test plan with the creation and integration of complaints can be controlled.

Figure 6.53. DISS/TPI section

After compiling the test plan in the background, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service automatically switches to the DISS tab and opens the coding wizard.

83

Diagnostic mode

On the one hand, all DISS complaints are listed for the order selected in ElsaPro. On the other hand, manual complaints can be created using a coding wizard. These complaints can be used to change the test plan for guided fault finding.

Figure 6.54. DISS tab view

The upper part of this view lists DISS complaints in a table. At the bottom, you have the option of using the coding wizard to enter manual customer complaints in coded form and update or supplement the test plan.

Figure 6.55. Table with DISS complaints

The table has four columns: 1. DISS BA ID: That is the identification number of a complaint. 2. Customer live statement: That is the complaint in the customer's words as entered during placement of the order.

84

Diagnostic mode

3. Customer code: That is the customer live statement in text form. 4. TPI from DISS: The number of the TPI assigned to the complaint from the DISS system. There are two possible categories of DISS complaints: 1. Complaints from the DISS system: These complaints display all DISS information from the currently used order from ElsaPro and are called automatically in the background when the order is selected at the start of the diagnostic session. To list the complaints from DISS, an online connection with login to the Group systems is necessary. 2. Manual complaints: These complaints are entered manually and displayed in the customer code column. The DISS BA ID is always "manual", the two remaining columns are without data. These complaints are also available offline without login to the group systems. The first empty row in the complaints table is automatically selected, see fig. DISS tab view. A new manual code can be created here. The coding wizard is used for this. Each time after entering a manual code in the complaints table, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service creates a new row for a manual complaint. Reference: How to use the coding wizard is described in more detail in the "Coding wizard" chapter. Functions for displaying TPI: The complaints list has a context menu that can be used to extend the test plan and call individual TPI linked to the complaint or corresponding TPI lists from the DISS system.

Figure 6.56. Context menu for individual complaints

A long left click or a right click on a complaint in the table opens the context menu. The following functions are available here: Extend test plan: The Transfer diagnostic objects to test plan window appears, in which the diagnostic objects linked to available codes are displayed. These diagnostic objects can be added to the test plan. Not all complaints have linked diagnostic objects. The test plan cannot be extended in these cases. A detailed explanation of this function is available later on in this section. Reference:

6.6. Self-diagnosis The following chapters describe under which circumstances self-diagnosis functions of the control units are available, in addition to guided fault finding, how the self-diagnosis functions are called and what the individual functions can do. Self-diagnosis gives the user the option of accessing individual diagnostic functions of the control unit or vehicle. Self-diagnosis is generally used if: •

No GFF is available for the vehicle (very old or very new vehicle model),



No GFF is available for the problematic case,



The GFF refers to the self-diagnosis.

Unlike with GFF, the interpretation of the results must be performed by the user.

6.6.1. Self-diagnosis in general There are two ways to execute self-diagnosis functions in Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service: 1.

A diagnosis with guided fault finding is performed without order. In this case, the self-diagnosis functions for identified control units or control units entered as installed manually are available in the context menu of the block diagram or control unit list. Reference: See chapter "Block diagram"

2.

If diagnostic start-up is performed as quick start-up without the using guided fault finding option, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service does not automatically identify the control units. The control units are identified manually or entered as installed manually via the block diagram or the control unit list.

Note: Subsequent start-up of guided fault finding is possible using this button on the Control units tab. That starts the automatic identification of the control units and guided fault finding.

111

Diagnostic mode

Figure 6.90. Block diagram without control units read out

You must left-click (for about 1 second) or right-click on the desired control unit in the block diagram or control unit list. That opens the context menu.

Figure 6.91. Manual identification of control units

112

Diagnostic mode

Identify control unit: The selected control unit is identified. Read event memory: If an identified control unit has event memory entries, this button is enabled. It can be used to re-read the event memories of the control unit. Read all event memories: The event memories of all control units identified so far are re-read. Guided functions: This button is enabled for an identified control unit. It is used to open the guided functions available for the selected control unit in a selection window. If a guided function is marked and you click on Execute, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service starts this function and switches to the Process tab for this. If a control unit is not identified during manual identification, Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service opens a message asking whether it is to be entered as installed manually.

Figure 6.92. Entering a control unit as installed that has not been identified

Yes: The control unit is entered manually as installed. The self-diagnosis functions are not available. No: The control unit is not entered as installed.

Reference: See chapters "Diagnostic start-up" and "Block diagram".

Note: Self-diagnosis is only possible with control units identified or entered as installed.

Calling self-diagnosis functions: For self-diagnosis, you must left-click (for about 1 second) or right-click on a control unit marked as installed, which opens a context menu with the self-diagnosis buttons.

The transport mode and access authorisation functions are not listed here, since they are executed in a separate window and not on the Results tab. To display and execute a function, Control unit self-diagnosis or Vehicle self-diagnosis must be selected from the menu first, and then the desired function name. Every function can also be active once for each control unit. If a tab is already open for a function for a control unit and the function is selected again, the existing tab is displayed. To restart the function explicitly, the existing tab must be closed first by clicking on

6.6.2. Control unit-specific functions 6.6.2.1. Adaptation Depending on whether the adaptation is to be performed on KWP or UDS control units, configuration and operation will deviate.

117

Diagnostic mode

6.6.2.1.1. Control units with KWP protocol For KWP control units, after switching to the Adaptation view all adaptation channels of the selected control unit are displayed in a list . The channels are numbered and sorted in ascending order. A maximum of 255 channels can be used per control unit. All 255 channels are always displayed, regardless of whether they are actually being used by the current control unit.

Figure 6.98. Adaptation KWP

New adaptation values can be entered in the

table. It has four columns:

Old value/default value: The adaptation value read out of the control unit. Test value: The current test value. Initially identical to the value in the Old value/default value column. Input: The value entered by the user. Initially identical to the value in the Old value/default value column. Unit: The unit of the adaptation value, if entered. There are four buttons below the table: Select channel: Selects a channel selected in the list. Apply: Writes the modified adaptation value into the control unit. Reset: Resets the test value to the original value.

118

Diagnostic mode

Reset all: If test values were set on several channels, they are reset to their original values - provided the new values have not yet been saved to the control unit using Apply. If the control unit or data input support this function, the information area the selected channel, e.g. its designation:

list.

table.

Change the adaptation value in the Input table column and confirm it with Enter. Then, the value is sent to the control unit first as the new test value. This procedure may be repeated any number of times.

Example: In the figures above, channel 4 was selected. For the dash panel insert/instrument cluster control unit used in the example, the language displayed is set at this channel. The value 1 stands for German and the value 2 for English. If the user sets the test value to 2, all messages are shown on the display panel of the instrument cluster in English until a different test value is entered, the Reset button is used or a different channel is selected.

As long as the modified value has not yet been saved to the control unit, the user can reset the test value to the initial value by clicking on the Reset button (i.e. to the value in the Old value/default value column). The test value is also reset if a new channel is selected or on changing or closing the tab. If the new value is invalid, an error message informs the user of this and the value is not stored in the control unit as the test value:

Figure 6.100. Error message in the event of an invalid adaptation value

4.

If the correct test value was determined, click on the Apply button to save it to the control unit. Only then is the value in the Old value/default value column set to the new value. After saving the value, the Reset button is disabled. Both values are also disabled if the value in the Input field and the value in the Old value/default value field are identical. 119

Diagnostic mode

On saving values, whether the value to be written is valid is checked - like for setting test values. If that is not the case, the error message described in step 3 appears and the write operation is cancelled.

6.6.2.1.2. Control units with UDS protocol For UDS control units, when switching from the Adaptation tab, all available adaptation functions of the selected control unit are listed in a table. They can be used to change the adaptation values of the control unit. This is illustrated in the following figure using the control unit with diagnostic address 17 (instrument cluster/dash panel insert):

Figure 6.101. Adaptation UDS

This is illustrated in the following figure using the control unit with diagnostic address 17 (instrument cluster/dash panel insert, 17 - KAL tab). The table of adaptation functions has four columns: Adaptation/parameter: The name of the adaptation function or parameter. Old value: The parameter value read out of the control unit. Input: The new parameter value. To change the value, click in the Input column of the desired parameter. Depending on the type of parameter, the new value may be selected from a list Unit: The unit of the adaptation value.

120

or entered freely.

Diagnostic mode

Every adaptation function has parameters . By default, they are displayed in closed form; they can be displayed by double-clicking in the row or by clicking on + in front of the function's name. Another double click or a click on - closes the parameter list again. To open the parameters of all functions in one go, click on the

button on the right below the table. In the

same way, clicking on closes all open parameter lists again. Depending on the number of available functions, opening may take a while.

Note: When you close one or more parameter lists, all values that have not yet been saved are lost. The user is informed about this by a message:

Figure 6.102. Warning on closing the parameter list

Yes: The values entered are discarded and the parameter list is closed. No: The parameter list remains open and the values entered are retained.

There are three buttons below the table: Restore: Restores the values of the selected adaptation function saved to the control unit before the last write operation. Clicking on the button displays the values last used in the Input column. To write the restored values into the control unit, click on the Apply button. Reset all: Restores the values of all adaptation functions saved to the control unit before the last write operation. Clicking on the button displays the values last used in the Input column. To write the restored values into the control unit, click on the Apply button. Apply: After changing the values of all desired adaptation functions, you can save them by clicking on the Accept button. Then, the user needs to confirm this:

Figure 6.103. Confirmation prompt before performing the adaptation

Yes: The new adaptation values are written.

121

Diagnostic mode

No: The adaptation values are not written into the control unit. Reset control units: This option is only active for control units that support this function. If the tick is set, the control unit is reset after writing the adaptation values. Before saving the values, the validity of the parameter values entered freely is checked. If this check is not successful, the values are not written into the control unit and an error message informs the user of the cause:

Figure 6.104. Error message in the event of an invalid adaptation value

If the new values were saved successfully, they are displayed in the Current value column.

6.6.2.2. Coding Depending on whether coding is to be performed on KWP or UDS control units, configuration and operation will deviate. The selection of the subsystem to be coded, i.e. of the control unit subordinate to the current control unit, is the same in both cases: 1.

Whether subsystems are available is checked.

2.

The system names of all available subsystems are displayed in a selection list. There is normally no default entry, instead the text "Please select subsystem" is displayed in the list.

3.

The user selects a subsystem or the control unit.

4.

The current code of the control unit is read automatically.

If the control unit does not have any subsystems, steps 2 and 3 are omitted. Then, on opening the Coding tab, the control unit is selected automatically and the code is also read directly. The subsequent steps deviate, depending on the diagnostic log and type of code.

Note: Gateway control units represent an exception. The Coding function cannot be selected for these control units.

122

Diagnostic mode

6.6.2.2.1. Coding on KWP control units The Coding function for KWP control units is explained below. There are two possible code types for these control units, the short code and the long code. The type of code depends on the control unit and cannot be changed by the user. 1.

Short code

Figure 6.105. Short code

Apply: Writes the code into the control unit. Restore: Enters the value last coded in the New code field. Click on Apply to save the restored code to the control unit. After opening the tab or selecting the desired subsystem, the code is read out of the control unit and displayed in the Old code field. The new value can be entered in the New code field and confirmed using the Enter key. That enables the Apply button. After pressing the Apply button, a message appears with a confirmation prompt.

Figure 6.106. Confirmation prompt before coding

Yes: Writes the new code value into the control unit. 123

Diagnostic mode

No: Writing is not performed. If coding was successful, another message is displayed:

Figure 6.107. Success message after coding

After confirming the message, the user is requested to reset the control unit:

Figure 6.108. Request to reset the ignition

To do this, switch the ignition key to the "Off" position and then back to its former position. Now, the old value is also displayed in the Old code display field, followed by the original code value in brackets:

Figure 6.109. New and old code

This procedure may be repeated any number of times. If coding was not successful due to an invalid value or other problems, a corresponding error message informs the user of this and the current code is not changed. Depending on the type of error that occurred, the messages may differ, e.g. stating that communication with the vehicle could not be established. After rectifying the problem, coding can be repeated. Any example of an error message is shown in the following figure:

Figure 6.110. Error message during coding due to missing data

2.

Long code

124

Diagnostic mode

With the long code, the values to be coded are displayed in the form of a bit field consisting of up to 32 bytes. It is displayed in binary and in hexadecimal representation. It is displayed in the same way as for the binary code for UDS control units. Reference: See "UDS binary code".

6.6.2.2.2. Coding on UDS control units For UDS control units, there is a binary code and a plain text code. These are different representations of the same type of code. If supported by data input, after calling the Code function and possibly selecting the subsystem the plain text code is displayed by default. Otherwise, the binary code is displayed. 1.

UDS binary code and KWP long code The representation of the binary code for UDS control units and of the long code for KWP control units is identical. The following description applies to the binary code, but also applies to the long code in the same way. The code string is displayed in a table view. Every row of the table corresponds to a byte of the code string:

Figure 6.111. Binary code

The table has five columns: Byte no..: The byte number in the code string.

125

Diagnostic mode

Current value, hex: The value in hexadecimal representation. Current value, binary: The value in binary representation. Input, hex: The user's entry in hexadecimal representation. Input, binary: The user's entry in binary representation. There are three buttons below the table: Apply: Writes the modified code string into the control unit. Restore: Restores the code last used. Plain text code: Switches to plaint text code representation, if supported by the control unit. Otherwise, the button is disabled. The value may be changed in binary form as well as in hexadecimal form. If you click in one of the two cells, a new input screen will appear:

Figure 6.112. User input for binary code

If one of the two values is changed, the corresponding binary or hexadecimal value is automatically updated during input. Closing the dialogue discards the changes. Apply: The changes are added to the table. Cancel: The changes are discarded. Once all changes have been made as desired, the checksum corresponding to the code string must be entered in the Check digit text field. It can be calculated as follows: The code string is split up into 2-byte groups. If the byte number is odd, the value 00 is attached to the end of the byte. The values are added up, any out-of-range value is cut off.

126

Diagnostic mode

Example: Code string: F0 01 02 04 08 10 20 F001 + 0204 + 0810 + 2000 11A15 & 0xFFFF = 1A15 Checksum: 1A15

To write the code into the control unit, the user must click on the Apply button. Before saving the code, a query appears.

Figure 6.113. Confirmation prompt before binary coding

Yes: The code string is checked for errors using the check digit. No: Coding is cancelled. If "Reset control units" is ticked, an automatic reset is performed after coding, i.e. the control unit is automatically switched off and back on again. If not, the user will need to perform a manual reset after coding, i.e. switch the ignition key once to the "Off" position and then back to its former position. If there is no entry in the Check digit field, a warning is displayed:

Figure 6.114. Note on missing check digit during binary coding

Yes: Writes the code string into the control unit. No: The code string is not written. If a check digit was entered that does not correspond to the code string, the following message is displayed:

127

Diagnostic mode

Figure 6.115. Note on incorrect check digit during binary coding

Yes: Still writes the code string into the control unit. No: The code string is not written. If coding was successful, another message is displayed:

Figure 6.116. Success message after coding

The new parameter values are now displayed in the table. In the event of an error, an error message informs the user of the reason why the code not could not be saved. Depending on the type of error that occurred, the messages may differ, e.g. stating that communication with the vehicle could not be established. After rectifying the problem, coding can be repeated. Reference: See "Error messages" chapter. If coding was successful and no automatic control unit reset was performed, after confirming the message the user is requested to manually reset the control unit:

Figure 6.117. Request to reset the ignition

To do this, switch the ignition key to the "Off" position and then back to its former position. For UDS control units that support this option, the user can click on the Plain text button to switch to the view for plain text coding. Changes already made in the binary view are not applied. In this case, the user is informed about this by a message:

128

Diagnostic mode

Figure 6.118. Warning when switching to plain text code

Yes: Switches to the plain text code view. Any changes in the binary view are lost. No: Does not switch to the plain text code view. Changes in the binary view are retained. If the code was saved without errors, the Restore button is enabled. Click on this button to restore the code last used. To write the restored code into the control unit, click on the Apply button again. 2.

Plain text code When you switch to the plain text code, the current code string is read out of the control unit and split up into its individual parameters. They are displayed in the table along with their designation and read-out value.

Figure 6.119. UDS plain text code

The table has five columns: Parameter name: The name of the parameter in the code string. Current value: The current code value.

129

Diagnostic mode

Input: The user name entry. There are three buttons below the table: Apply: Writes the modified code string into the control unit. Restore: Restores the code last used. Binary code: Switches to binary code representation. To change the value of a parameter, the user must click on the desired parameter row in the input column. The new value can now be selected from a selection list. For this type of code, it is not necessary to enter a checksum since only the code values from data input and thus valid values can be selected. Coding is started after clicking on the Apply button. With the exception of checking the checksum, the process is the same as for binary coding and is described there. Reference: See "UDS binary code".

6.6.2.3. Event memory The Event memory function reads the current contents of the event memory of a control unit. It also provides the option of erasing the event memory.

130

Diagnostic mode

Figure 6.120. KWP event memory

The contents of the event memory are displayed in two tables arranged on top of each other. The table at the top lists all events read out of the selected control unit. It has four columns: Event code: The code number of the event. SAE code: The code number of the event in SAE format. Event text: The description of the event. active: Indicates whether the event is active or not. If you click on an event line, the table at the bottom lists the ambient conditions. They represent additional information on the selected event, such as mileage, date, fault status etc. The number and type of these pieces of information may deviate partially from one control unit to another. The table has two columns: Type/name: The type of information. Value: The value read. A + may precede the designators. That means that they represent a group of individual pieces of information that can be opened by clicking on +. If the group is open, - is displayed in front of its main entry. Click on this symbol to close the group again. There are three areas for additional functions next to the tables: Refresh : Clicking on the now button triggers re-reading of the event memory. Selecting the in cycles checkbox initiates the reading of the event memory in cycles at the cycle time entered in the text field below. If the cycle time is changed, click on the now button again to accept the new cycle time.

131

Diagnostic mode

Sort

: You can enter a criterion here by which the event memory entries are sorted in the table at the top.

Clicking on the column headings of the table at the top reverses the sort order (ascending/descending). The default sort order is descending by priority and the time of the occurrence of the events displayed:

Figure 6.121. Sorting the event memory entries

Delete : To delete the contents of the event memory in the selected control unit, click on the Event memory button. A confirmation dialogue appears. The event memory is only erased after confirmation using the yes button. Click on no to cancel the process.

Note: After erasing an event memory, it is re-read immediately and its content is displayed. If the event memory is not empty and still includes all or some events displayed before the erasure, the control unit did not accept the command for erasing or the corresponding event was immediately re-entered since the cause of the error has not been eliminated yet. Event memory entries that have been deleted CANNOT be restored!

132

Diagnostic mode

Figure 6.122. UDS event memory

For UDS control units, in addition to the ambient conditions to the right of the table, another table is displayed with information on the event status. Name: The name of the status bit. Value: The value of the status bit.

Diagnostic mode

6.6.2.4. Default setting The configuration of the default setting and of the measured values to be displayed deviates, depending on whether the function is executed on control units with KWP protocol or with UDS protocol.

6.6.2.4.1. Default setting on KWP control units The steps for executing the Default setting function on a KWP control unit are explained below.

Figure 6.123. KWP default setting

Read measured values: Reads the measured values for a channel out of the control unit. Default setting: Configures the default setting for a channel. In the list on the left, the desired setting channel can be marked and thus selected by clicking on it. The available channels are displayed in a list, sorted in ascending order. Multiple selection is not possible. 254 channels are available per control unit. All 254 channels are always displayed, regardless of whether some of them are not being used by the current control unit. If a channel that is not used is selected, no measured values are displayed and no default setting can be configured for this channel either. No channel has a default setting to start with, and the Default setting button is disabled. The second table

lists all measured values available for the selected channel.

Measured value name: The name of the measured value. Value: The value returned by the control unit.

134

Diagnostic mode

Unit: The unit of the measured value. First, select a channel from the list. Then, after clicking on the Read measured values button, the measured values are read for this channel and displayed in the table. During this process, no settings are changed in the control unit. The Read measured values button is now disabled and the Default setting button is enabled. To start the process of defining settings, click on the Default setting button. Then all measured values displayed are processed one after the other. If a different channel is selected during the functional sequence and you click on the Read measured values button, the process of defining settings is stopped and measured values are re-read. Some default setting operations require the user's action. If that is the case, the required action is displayed in the table of measured values for the currently active measured value. Once the action has been performed, the process of defining settings is automatically continued. When the default settings have been configured, the result is displayed in the Default settings for KWP - Status field.

Example: The necessary action "apply accelerator pedal" is displayed as the measured value. If the user performs this action, this text disappears from the table of measured values and the process of defining settings is continued.

After configuring the default setting, the newly configured measured values are displayed. If the default setting was not successful, a dialogue appears with an error message that needs to be confirmed by the user. Depending on the type of error that occurred, the messages may differ, e.g. stating that communication with the vehicle could not be established. After rectifying the problem, the process of configuring the default settings can be repeated. Reference: See also "Error messages" chapter.

6.6.2.5. Identification The self-diagnosis function, Identification, is for reading various permanent values out of the control unit, such as part number, software version etc. These values can only be displayed, they cannot be modified.

Figure 6.129. Results window of self-diagnosis identification

In this example, the control unit for the central electrics has been selected and identification has been performed.

The table at the top

has four columns containing information read out of the control unit.

System identification: The name of the control unit. Part number: The unique part number of the control unit. Software version: The current software version. Workshop code: The workshop code. The main control unit addressed is displayed in the very top row of the table. Further auxiliary control units that can be accessed via the main control unit are displayed in the following rows – if available. This is the wiper module in the example above. To display additional identification characteristics, select the respective entry in the table at the top. For the information displayed in the table at the bottom the user can switch between the standard identification characteristics and the extended identification characteristics of the system selected above.

identification button is used for this purpose. If it is confirmed, the extended identification is displayed and the button is given the caption: Show standard identification. After selecting an entry from the upper table, the standard identification is automatically displayed first.

6.6.2.6. Measured values The control unit for which the selection has been made is shown in the upper left part of the tab. The example shows the engine's electronics. The Measured values tab has two views: one for configuring the measured values to be recorded (see figure at the top) and one for displaying the test results. After compiling the measured values to be displayed in the first view, as shown in the figure above, use the Display measured values button to open the measured value display. The configuration of the measured values to be displayed deviates, depending on whether the measured values were read by control units with KWP protocol or by control units with UDS protocol.

6.6.2.6.1. Measured values with KWP control units The measured values to be read out must be selected first:

Figure 6.130. Measured value selection (KWP)

For control units with KWP protocol, measured value blocks are read out with up to four measured values. The measured value block numbers (1 to 254) and, if necessary, the measured value position within the corresponding measured value block are entered in the Block.Position text field, separated by a dot. After the entry has been made, the Apply button is enabled. If a block number outside the valid value range is entered, Apply remains disabled. Click on Apply to transfer the entry to the right-hand list containing the selected measured values. If only the block number is entered, when you click on Apply all four measured values of this block are displayed. By

Some control units permit diagnosis to be continued on the next actuator during the functional sequence. In this case, the button is enabled while the function is in progress. Click on this button to stop diagnosis on the current actuator and continue it on the next actuator. For control units that use the KWP 2000 protocol, measured values are read in cycles by the control unit in addition to the diagnostic status. A selection is not possible. The measured values displayed are specified by the control unit. When actuator diagnosis is finished, the test result is displayed in the Actuator diagnosis - Status field.

Figure 6.134. Actuator diagnosis status

If additional values were read by the control unit, they are displayed in the Measured values table. The left-hand column contains the name of the measured value, the measured value is displayed in the column in the middle and its unit is displayed in the right-hand column.

6.6.2.7.2. Actuator diagnosis on UDS control units For control units with UDS protocol, actuator diagnosis can be configured more extensively. After selecting the Actuator diagnosis function for a UDS control unit, the user is first taken to the Actuator selection view (see fig. UDS actuator selection). A list of the available actuators of the control unit appears, which that can be parametrised individually. The actuator tests selected and configured this way can then be performed in succession or simultaneously. The function can be exited in all states by closing the tab. If the tab is exited (e.g. by selecting a different tab) or if the view is changed, the status of the function is retained in terms of parametrisation. However, all currently active actuator tests are stopped. That also applies if you switch from the conduction of actuator diagnosis back to the parametrisation. It is therefore not possible to add or parametrise individual actuators during an active actuator diagnosis. The four phases of actuator diagnosis for UDS control units are described in the following in detail. 1.

6.6.3. Vehicle-specific functions 6.6.3.1. Event memory for overall system The Event memory for overall system function reads the event memories of all control units installed in the vehicle.

Figure 6.146. Event memory for overall system

The view consists of a table with three columns: Address: The diagnostic address of the control unit. System: The name of the control unit. Event: The number of events read. On switching to the view, the table is automatically updated, i.e. an attempt is made to read the events that occurred in each control unit installed. If the control unit's event memory is empty, 0 is entered in green text in the same column. For control units with entries in the event memory, the number of events is displayed in red in the Event column. In addition, a + is

157

Diagnostic mode

displayed in front of the diagnostic address. If the user clicks on it, the events that occurred are listed in detail. Additional information on an event can be displayed by clicking on the + in front of the event. If it was not possible to read the event memory of a control unit, the Event column for this control unit remains empty. The user has two ways of updating the table: by clicking on the now button or by ticking the in cycles option. In the first case, the table is updated exactly once. To stop the update, click on the Cancel button. If the user selects update in cycles, the table is updated continuously according to the interval displayed in the text box under the option. The value must be entered in seconds. By default, an interval of 30 seconds is used. If no value is entered, the value last entered is used. If the interval is shorter than the time required for the update, reading is started again immediately after finishing a reading cycle. The interval may be changed during the update in cycles. The new value needs to be confirmed using the Return key. To stop updates in cycles, remove the tick from the in cycles option. It is also possible to update the table immediately between two cycles by clicking on the now button. After reading all event memories, double-click on a table row to select the Read event memory function for the corresponding control unit (the prerequisite for this is that it was possible to read the control unit's event memory). As a result, the content of the event memory of the selected control unit is displayed on a new tab. Reference: See "Event memory" chapter. Once the event memory has been read completely at least once, the user may erase the event memory of the overall system. For this, there are several methods that depend on the control unit or vehicle. For example, the error memories can be erased together in one go or in succession:

Figure 6.147. Selecting the method for erasing the event memory

To erase the event memory in one go, select Overall system from the list in this example (it is already selected by default) and confirm this by clicking on the Execute button. A confirmation prompt appears:

Figure 6.148. Warning before erasing the event memory

Yes: The event memories of all control units that support this function will be erased. No: Erasure will not be performed. After completing the erasure, any errors that occurred are displayed in a dialogue. If the method was successful, no other messages are displayed. To erase the event memories of the control units one after the other, select Individual from the list. The confirmation prompt above appears here as well, which needs to be confirmed by the user with OK. Then, the event

158

Diagnostic mode

memories of the control units are erased one after the other. After each erasure, the event memory of the control unit is re-read and the result is displayed in a table.

Note: After erasing an event memory, it is re-read immediately and its content is displayed. If the event memory is not empty and still includes all or some events displayed before the erasure, the control unit did not accept the command for erasing or the corresponding event was immediately re-entered since the cause of the error has not been eliminated yet. Event memory entries that have been deleted CANNOT be restored!

6.6.3.2. Transport mode The following dialogue appears:

The installation list can be updated manually or in cycles. For a single, manual update, use the now button. If the user selects update in cycles, the table is updated continuously according to the interval displayed in the text box under the option. The value must be entered in seconds. If the interval is shorter than the time required for the update, reading is started again immediately after finishing a reading cycle. The interval may be changed during the update in cycles. The new value needs to be confirmed using the Return key. To stop updates in cycles, remove the tick from the in cycles option. It is also possible to update the table immediately between two cycles by clicking on the now button.
