AURO OtoSys IM100 Special Functions Inside SERVICE:
Oil Serive Reset, Parking Brake Pad Relearn After Replacement, Steering Angle Sensor Relearn, Battery Registration and Reset, Diesel Particulate Filter Regeneration, Tire Pressure Monitoring System
The Service section is specially designed to provide you with quick access to the vehicle systems for various scheduled service and maintenance performances. The typical service operation screen is a series of menu driven executive commands. By following the on-screen instructions to select appropriate execution options, enter correct values or data, and perform necessary actions, the system will guide you through the complete performance for various service operations.
OtoSys IM100 Oil Reset Service
This function allows you to perform reset for the Engine Oil Life system, which calculates an optimal oil life change interval depending on the vehicle driving conditions and climate. The Oil Life Reminder must be reset every time the oil is changed, so the system can calculate when the next oil change is required.
OtoSys IM100 Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) Service
This function has a multitude of usages to maintain the electronic braking system safely and effectively. The applications include deactivating and activating the brake control system, assisting with brake fluid control, opening and closing brake pads, and setting brakes after disc or pad replacement, etc.
OtoSys IM100 Battery Management System (BMS) Service
The BMS allows the scan tool to evaluate the battery charge state, monitor the close-circuit current, register the battery replacement, and activate the rest state of the vehicle.
OtoSys IM100 Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) Service
Steering Angle Sensor Calibration permanently stores the current steering wheel position as the straight-ahead position in the steering angle sensor EEPROM. Therefore, the front wheels and the steering wheel must be set exactly to the straight-ahead position before calibration. In addition, the vehicle identification number is also read from the instrument cluster and stored permanently in the steering angle sensor EEPROM. On successful completion of calibration, the steering angle sensor fault memory is automatically cleared.
OtoSys IM100 Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Service
The DPF function allows you to carry out numerous functions to the Diesel Particulate Filter system without having to send your car to a main dealer. The tool will manage DPF regeneration, DPF component replacement teachin and DPF teach-in after replacing the engine control unit. ECM monitors driving style and selects a suitable time to employ regeneration. Cars driven a lot at idling speed and low load will attempt to regenerate earlier than cars driven more with high load and high speed. In order for regeneration to take place, a prolonged high exhaust temperature must be obtained. In the event of the car being driven in such a way that regeneration is not possible, i.e. frequent short journeys, a diagnostic trouble code will eventually be registered, DPF light and “Check Engine” indicator comes on. A service regeneration can be requested in the workshop, using the diagnostic tool.
OtoSys IM100 Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) Service
This function allows you to quickly look up the tire sensor IDs from the vehicle’s ECU, as well as to perform TPMS replacement and sensor test.
