At the time I shot the video I was not aware that it was also capable of
reading SRS codes.
Honestly, I found this tool difficult to set up. I will admit that this may
be due to the interface with my phone however. Once I got it up and running
it seemed to work fine however. This tool can be a simple code reader, or
it can be on par with some of the more high end scanners due to it's ABS,
SRS capabilities, and the 'Code Connect' feature. Also with 'Code Connect'
it can provide additional diagnostic information that is not found in many
other scan tools. At least for the code I checked it seemed the information
was minimal, but it was accurate. That said, this seems like it would be a
nice scanner for the DIY and possibly for side work if you're a
professional technician. It really depends on how much you want to spend on
the in app purchases to unlock the tools full capabilities.

1. With the ignition switch turned off, disconnect the Coolant Temperature
2. Turn the ignition to the on position. The glow plug relay should
energize for about 20 seconds (glow system self-test) and supply the glow
plugs with 12 volts.
3. Check the amp draw on each individual glow plug. A normal glow plug will
show a draw of about 9 amps (On initial application of power, the amp draw
will spike high until the glow plug begins to heat. A typical spike can run
as high as 19 amps).
4. Check the glow plug wiring and connections for damage, looseness or
5. A difference in amperage draw of 3 amps between glow plugs can cause a
code P0380 to set. Be sure that all glow plugs are within 3 amps of each
other on initial application of power and also during normal glow period.
6. If glow plugs fail testing, always replace them as a set.

Pegisys Direct Hit Technician Webinar 062910 Part 1.f4v
Pegisys with Code Assist ™ and Direct Hit Technician ™ Webinar
Work was performed on 3 separate Test and Diagnose for Code and No Code
type of vehicle failures.
1. We will work on a difficult to obtain scan tool access and repair
information, the SUBARU with a symptom of check engine light on, with
multiple codes, and all relays and solenoids cycling on and off. We will
show how to test and we will show the cause. Codes P1101 -- Manufacturer
Controlled Fuel and Air Pump Metering as well as P0500, P1121 and P1510
2. Follow this difficult exercise with an even more difficult
automobile a Volkswagen with a P0420 Catalyst Efficiency code this is also
the same code as a Volkswagen long code 16804. We will look at the Data
Display groups and run a forced monitor test on the front and rear HO2S
validating their response time. We will also perform a Volkswagen
catalytic converter test. We will then determine the cause and the repairs
3. The final vehicle we will look at will be a Chrysler with symptom
of Climate Control that has poor AC and Heating performance with NO Codes
detected. We will show how to test and determine the cause.
All this will be done with the Pegisys with Code Assist ™ and Direct Hit
Technician ™ database at the fender while never leaving the vehicle to
obtain additional information, saving time, and improving efficiency and
profitability for the technician.
