ADAS set from Autel? Are you *#@#**X kidding me?

John Anello runs the very first company to do mobile diagnostics! It is called Auto Tech On Wheels and is located in Northern New Jersey. ATOW and ADS have been working together on some projects in the last year. Here we talk about ADAS

Hi John,

Tyler mentioned that you are maybe in the process of purchasing the Autel ADAS set.
I am sure I would not do that at this point. In fact I think others are making a big mistake in doing that!
We are in the process of looking real hard at the choices that will be best for all of the shops that we support.
We are worried about the Autel system not being one that will keep the lawyers away from prosecuting the end users as their targets are not legally obtained.
ADAS is in charge of preventing fatalities, right?
Our market presence revealed a case with a fatality in an Audi A8 that had not been correctly calibrated correctly at an Audi dealer after a collision and repairs. Active Cruise Control was the culprit. The lawyers won that one. The way that works is first the technician was sued, till he ran out of assets.
Then the dealership is sued, they have insurance and assets that will satisfy the settlements.
Last year we where invited to a new company opening in California.
That company is DH Sales LLC.
Their website is www.dhsalesllc.com.
Automotive Diagnostic Solutions is  representing DHSales in our area.
In fact we at Automotive Diagnostic Solutions are the first to sell the Beissbarth Touchless T-16 alignment machine to a repair facility in Gig Harbor Washington!
DHSales is the only authorized Beissbarth distributor in North America.
Beissbarth is the only manufacturer of the legal targets.
Beissbarth was chosen by the OEM’s as the only manufacturer with high enough quality standards to make targets correctly……
Now, if we all print the Beissbarth provided targets from an OE source like Honda and Subaru allows, no issues, right?
Or buy them from Mercedes or Audi…..
Post collision, vehicles must have an alignment check to ensure the center line of thrust is right.
Then you use the target holding rack and level the rails that it rides on in order to be level and square, your golden and you save thousands. In fact this rack could end up being the same rack you will use to adjust the new active headlights as well as ADAS.
All the OE systems have ADAS functions and re-calibration advice built in.
Doing this with anything other than an OEM system is foolish.
Left hand drive or right hand drive? OEM systems know what market your in. Aftermarket systems have trouble even translating from one language to another, and they definitely make mistakes as to what side of the car things are located on.  OE manufacturers in North America are responsible for their mistakes. Aftermarket tools might not be.
We have been following the ADAS system calibration advice for a while now.
My research showed that Autel has already tried reducing the size of the targets to reduce the overall foot print or floor space needed around the vehicle. They where not able to be accurate and they are now back to targets that are sized according to recommendations from OE manufacturers.
The Beissbarth EZ 3D aligner with the Bosch DAS-1000 calibration set is the most satisfying decision for ADAS.
Contact us and we will get this delivered.
I think it will not only stand up to the Lawyers, but it will be maybe 10K less than what Autel is asking for their not so legit offering.
The active headlights are what you and Tyler have been doing so many of on the Mercedes-Benz brand.
Most all new cars in our market have everything they need in them to be active headlights, they have not been turned on yet. They will be turned on soon.
Click the link below to see a system that will satisfy!
Thanks for working with us John!

Support On Demand

November 2018 Autoland Scientech introduced Support On Demand.

It comes with the *NEW* i Scan 3.
It comes with the lower priced i Scan 3 Euro package.
It is included in the *NEW* VeDis 3 as well, WITH NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE! (Until you want to use it.)

We have currently tested Mercedes-Benz Xentry system using our SOD, SCN coding, programming, Bi-directional control, and live data tests while diagnosing over the Internet!

Not just Emission related components like Drew Tech!

We are coding headlights and programming seat belt tensioners, and resetting SCR with limited starts lefts!

SOD now includes all these brands:
Mini Cooper
Rolls Royce
Land Rover

SOD is in testing still.
Mercedes-Benz may soon move out of Beta!
BMW may soon be released as well.

Our technicians have been supporting diagnostics far longer than Drew Technologies or any of these others.

Call us, to improve the functionality in your shop, we will help you get the right stuff so you can do it on your own.
Training on diagnostic systems, or remote programming.

Autel fools most shops!

Autel sells a lot of tools. Some people think they are great.

They last for a year, maybe two. So you only spent 3K and then around a thousand on the update.

Then they sell you another one, or another update.

Autel is sometimes said to require you send your tool back for updates, we think they removed functions due to the Ford and all other lawsuits!

Autoland Scientech customers get a package with extended access to updates included in your purchase price, and our hardware is still working great after many years. Our customers used the original VeDis  for 5-7 years and they loved it! Then they traded it in, with a two thousand dollar value for the first i Scan, the deluxe, another hardware we supported for 7 years or more! Then Autoland came out with the i SCan II WT in late 2011 and we are just now ending support for that fantastic system in 2019. We allowed another $2000 trade-in value. That’s seven years with the same hardware and most customers never had to pay for any additional subscriptions as Autolands new offer came with many years of updates included. Autoland Scientech is a more affordable option than any other choice. DO THE MATH!

IMS-MB saves the day!

I just finished a live tech support job. This Mercedes shop had a failure on a wire leading to their Mercedes-Benz multiplexor. It has been intermittent but failed for good yesterday. These things always happen on a Friday! Fortunately they bought an i Scan II WT from me back in 2013 with the IMS package. We found the DB9 cable, connected it, and they are know able to run the fuel tank purge test with the DAS program.

Support On Demand tested!

Drew Technologies released RAP a remote programming service in 2016.

Autologic presents to customers that they have live programming support about the same time.

Mike Eyler is in New Jersey, he runs “Eye Can Fix That!” a mobile diagnostic/programming company that provides his customers up with remote programming hardware.

AS Tech popped up in Florida selling their remote diagnostic services for pre and post collision scans a couple of years back.

Now the Bosch JPro boasts it allows cross platform communications with their device.

November 2017 Autoland Scientech releases the i Scan 3 with their SOD option for remote application of OEM software over the Internet at the AAPEX show in Las Vegas. This is very different than these other offers. At their introduction RAP was offering help on the easy platforms, so GM, Toyota, Honda, and Ford in the beginning. They turn down jobs after 3 PM. Autoland Scientech is a European focused tool, so our experience is in remote application of the European brands!

The first round of testing proved the distance to the server was too great, servers are relocated now. We did our testing yesterday using an Offline version of ISTA and ISTA-P. We quickly connected our BMW diagnostic PC in Lafayette with two BMW’s at Bimmerhaus Performance in Broomfield yesterday. We went into IHKA on an E series and activated the blower motor, disconnected and moved to an F10. Pulled VIN and DTC’s, we went into FRM and turned on cornering lamps. We then closed ISTA-D and booted into ISTA-P. We pulled the VIN and the software pulled the VO and asked us if we replaced any modules. We stopped there. We still need to test it on coding and programming functions. The Autoland SOD is the first designed to provide for the European cars to completeness.

So, let’s recap these systems.

The RAP 1 or 2  is useless without engaging with a remote tech support specialist. The one thing that is guaranteed is that you will pay something to Drew Technologies every month.

Autologic remote supports their diagnostic device and say that they are programming again from the handheld unit. From users we hear another story, some say they are told by Autologic tech support that for BMW they should have an official ISTA option. That needs to go on another PC. Their Mercedes software is not complete. Jaguar Land Rover requires a subscription to SDD.

Mike Eyler’s system sounds like it is better than the others because it comes from Mike, he is very good.

AS Tech might work, but the jury is still out on that service.

The real benefit of the Autoland Scientech SOD system is that we will do the harder brands. Our device is a stand alone scanner and programmer, so you do not need to rely on remote tech support, and it has programming options independent from dealer PC subscriptions. With the optional IMS feature you will be able to have your own subscriptions with the OE systems and save thousands on factory connectors. When needed, you can call us and we will remotely apply factory softwares, with over ten years of experience doing this, for your benefit. IMS emulates the Mercedes C4, BMW ICOM, VW Audi’s VAS5054A, and the Porsche PIWIS. Our J-2534 menu includes Ford, GM, JLR, Toyota and Lexus, Honda, and Volvo.

The Bosch JPro is completely new, we need to wait and see how they do.

It comes down to independence or dependance. Engage in any remote service choice and you are dependent on them and their schedules. Get the Autoland Scientech Diagnostic system and you are truly independent!

Land Rover Jaguar SDD Engineering functions!

We have been able to do some very cool stuff with a seed key generator we developed.

The seed enables engineering functions that even the Dealers cannot use!

We changed the VIN on a used PCM, we also guided a local shop in removing TPMS on a 2012 LR3.

We see signs that we can do mileage corrections but have not tried to do that yet!

We are working on modifying the vehicle configuration files on a 2007 LRover someone put a 2012 RDCM in.

Stay tuned to see how that turns out.

USED PCM installation on a Range Rover

We worked with Diagnostic Solutions, Inc.’s Mike Almond on a Land Rover in Toronto today. Mikes customer was trying to save his customer some $$$ by installing a used pcm into this Rover. You are not supposed to be able to do that! We started on the job last night by remotely installing the most current version of the JLR SDD software to Mikes PC. He drove out to the job the next morning and we connected to his PC using Teamviewer. We clicked on the image of the key, left side of first screen on SDD showing all the modules. We then used the VIN and the seed key to generate an engineering mode login. Once that allowed us in, we ran car configuration to configure the module. We completed after programming functions and car started and ran with just one DTC left to sort out in the entertainment system!
