HD Scan TOOL

Michael Owner/Technician Quebec Posted   Latest   Edited  

Hi Guys,

I've been doing more and more light duty & medium duty truck diag lately as another garage specializing in heavy duty trucks has been sending the lighter stuff our way. When it comes to sprinters, fords, gm & dodge I'm equipped already but I find my snap on will not do Fuso & Hino which there are starting to be more and more of. Any body know of a good HD scan tool (possibly with DPF regen options) that is a bit more budget friendly? Not really working on a bunch and its not worth it for me to invest that heavily but I want to at least read codes…

Thanks

The Autel Commercial Vehicle tool works well on medium and light duty trucks. I have hooked up to multiple Dodge Cummins with it and even a Chevrolet Express Van. Plus it's inexpensive.

Autel would be my first choice. I have an Elite and it does Isuzu, Hino, Fuso and a bunch more.

What is the oldest Hino you have hooked up to? I'm going to be seeing a 2006 238 pretty regularly.

I would recommend the Bosch HDS 250, if you are looking for inexpensive code reader. HDS 250 | Bosch Diagnostics But if you want a real Heavy Duty scan tool than the Bosch 3824A is the tool I would recommend, It works on Light duty and Medium duty as well Heavy duty and you can ad Off highway, busses, Agriculture, as close to an OE tool I have ever seen and easy to use as well.

Hi! In my opinion, Gscan 3 is the best tool for Asian commercial vehicles, which includes OEM level software for Hyundai trucks and buses and Japanese brands, supporting all systems and all special function both for 20-30 years trucks with original adapters and th newest models with OBD socket.

How about Cummins, Allison, Navistar, Mack, Bendix, Wabo, Eaton in the US? Found some info online. Will have to watch your you tube videos.

Hi Rex. Gscan 3 is great for Asian commercial vehicles. For US truck I would use Drew Linq with OEM software. For Wabco systems I prefer Autocom (both belong to the same group), as they provide OEM level software and plenty of adapters to cover all variations of trailers' ABS/EBS systems, including programming of new modules.
