i worked on a 2007 chrysler pt cruiser today and went to pull codes from the codes overview and saw the ALL MODULES STATUS. eddie has mentioned this on several threads; it sure makes it convenient when checking codes. from now on i'll be looking for this feature on every car i scan. i hope snap on is listening; STOP ADDING MORE BRANDS to the scanner, ADD MORE FUNCTIONS to the brands we have already. LIVE CYLINDER CONTRIBUTION TESTS for toyota, nissan, honda, all fords and chrysler(the one for chrysler rarely works).

I agree we shouldn't discourage them from adding ANY coverage,
and I agree the original interface needs to be restored. Did you vote in either of the polls on this in the Verus forum?

66superduty 03-15-2011 10:34 AM

no i didnt vote. but i will . i have been very discourged. i am almost 60 years old and have bought snap-on tools since 1970. i cant get over the fact that snap-on goes to a lot of expense to demo thier product to the dealers ,but the dealers dont show. then when you ask a simple question like whats the new update about they cant tell you. i get answers from all the dealers i have hads like uh i got some emails from snap-on , i will read them and get back to you. my dealer couldnt tell me if i was supossed to get a 7a key with an update are if i was meant to buy one with an update. he didnt even know they where out are necessary. i just am trying to stay with snap-on two more years. then i will walk away from it all and never look back. wake up snap-on i used to wear you gimme hats and belt buckles with pride, now i dont even wont one !!!!!

04 Cadillac Srx

04 Cadillac SRX and maybe other models with memory seats, need access to the memory seat module. Reason ? If any of the adjustable pedal components need replacing or the memory seat module it's self, the pedals will have to be recalibrated with a function in the memory seat module or they will not be functional. Here is the VIN and the 10.2 menu. Thanks

Had a friend bring me an 07 Duramax tonight 6.6 LMM. He wanted me to reset the regen and DPF functions... He claims its dumping to much fuel and already had the calibration updated at the dealer. Broke out the verus but no bidrectionl support. I don't have my tech 2 at the moment but I was able to use my EFI Live which has bi-directional support on it to verify proper function before clearing and resetting the ECM Monitors.

Yes you are right, I hadn't worked on an older pre 2002 Honda's. I've mostly worked on newer 2003 models and found they have good coverage. But I have a 1997 Prelude and found that Bidirectional controls are very limited close to none and also found that there is no ABS or SRS testing for it, only how to manually pull codes on these systems. My OTC Genisys has better coverage on these older Honda's and can read codes and Data as well as run bidirectional testing I am surprised? So yes we need More support for these older Honda's. We need SRS, ABS Codes and Data,We need Evap functional Testing, which are not included. I Checked from 1996 to 2002 Honda Accords to the Prelude all are missing these testing capabilities.

Thanks Eddie!!! As long as I am not the only one asking for it... LOL

These cars are now getting old enough that when you get a Evap system failure they can very dificult to diagnose with out those features.

The same week we got our new solus pro at the shop I found this out on the honda's...

Luckly I kept that MTS3100. Now Im thinking I should get the rest of the cards and the update for it... I only paid $500 for it. It was complete with cables and connectors but only had the oem honda card. I Just scored an oem toyota card for $250 :D
