Pegisys Code to Fix Webinar Part 2 03-25-10
This webinar covered "Code to Fix" illustration of a fast and simple
diagnostic procedure using Pegisys to retrieve a Code, obtain repair
information for the code and verify the failure and fix.
This training demonstrates how Direct - Hit - Technician repair information
can be utilized to proceed to the direct test of the failure using the lab
scope. Also covered was the On-Tool Repair Information to further guide
the technician through the fix.
The final part of the webinar covered the various uses of the Pegisys
Datastream feature to validate the repair, A brief tour of other training
finished off this webinar training session.
OTC Tool Guy Pegisys Direct - Hit Technician 2004 Toyota Prius 1.5 Ltr. Engine P1121, P1116
2004 Toyota Prius 1.5L
Customer Complaint = Check engine light On and codes P1121, P1116 set
1. Check to see if the technical service bulletin EG024-05 has been
performed for the coolant flow control valve.
2. Monitor the position sensor and check to see if the coolant flow control
valve can be operated to move open and closed.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta 1.9L TDI ALH
Customer Complaint = Check engine light on, vehicle starts hard cold code
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.

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.

Snap-on Data Bus Fault Finder EEFF500
The go-to tool when there is no communication with the scan tool. Modern
vehicles have roughly 15 to 25 computers all talking to one another on
shared circuits. When those circuits fail, the vehicle may exhibit any
number of problems.
The EEFF500 is a specialty tool that isolates the problem portion of the
affected circuit quickly and easily. It features 12 switchable circuits and
LED self-testing. Open circuits show up amber and short circuits show up
red for easy detection.

Rotunda vs OTC Ford Diesel Specialty Tools
Rotunda is Ford's OE tool manufacturer. When Rotunda is the only producer
of a specific specialty tool, the price is much higher. If an item is made
by an aftermarket tool company the price typically goes down and becomes
much more reasonable. One tool used on 6.0 Diesels to remove the glow plugs
is the Rotunda 303-1114 also known as the 561268. This tool was over a
hundred dollars! Now it is available at WiseAutoTools.com as the OT6768 and
is about a third of the cost. The Rotunda 303-1115 is an Injector Connector
release tool used on 6.0 Ford Diesels. The price has came down on it as
well since it is available at Wise Auto Tools as the OT6766. The funny
thing about these brands (Rtunda and OTC) is that they are both owned by
SPX, which is now actually Bosch that owns the automotive tool division.

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.
