Software upgrade brings new coverage

By autotech-nath on August 9, 2017

Snap-on’s diagnostic software upgrade 17.2 brings coverage of thousands of new vehicles and systems to the fingertips of technicians.

Highlights include: A 2016 model year update for Chrysler, Citroen, Ford, Jaguar, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes, Peugeot, Porsche, Subaru, Suzuki, and Toyota; Jaguar XF (260) and F-Pace (X760) models, and keyless entry has been introduced for the 2015 Hyundai Tucson, Santa Fe and Genesis 3.8L.

This version adds nearly 50,000 new systems, over 1,700 new vehicles, more than 18,300 new codes and nearly 1,800 new functional tests to the capabilities of Snap-on’s handheld diagnostic tools.

Coverage for Porsche vehicles has been added to the component Test Meter (CTM) with all models and engines featured, including ABS menus, ABS control module and tests.

Three new technology classes join the CTM: Electronic Throttle Control, covering H-bridge control (reversing polarity); Basic Electronic Components with a focus on transistors/diodes, theory and operation, and testing; and Engine Management Control Systems, which looks at inputs, outputs and communication.

Users of the VERUS and VERDICT family of products, and of the MODUS Ultra and SOLUS Edge platforms, also get exclusive access to SureTrack with the new upgrade. A resource designed to improve diagnostic accuracy and reduce repair time with diagnostic experience, repair timesavers and verified parts replacement records that are taken from millions of successful repair orders.
