Guided Fault Finding
The mode "Guided Fault Finding" is activated by selecting the navigation element with this name in the system start mask.
Guided fault finding is the actual innovation with which the VAS 5051 facilitates workshop opera- tions and shortens the time required to find faults.
The test instrument and self-diagnosis functions are implemented as necessary during guided fault finding.
Starting from fault signals from the vehicle self- diagnosis, a brief description of the customer complaints, or assumptions concerning the cause of the fault, the mechanic is guided step-by-step through a fault finding program. This fault finding program is permanently gener- ated and optimized in the computer during the test.
All information from various workshop docu- ments required for fault finding, e. g.:
- Workshop manuals - Fault finding programs are included in the programs of the mode "Guided fault finding".
