ACI SCANNER Introduction
ACI Auto Communication Interface is 100% compatible with AUTO ENGIUITY OE-LEVEL software, Support all Enhanced Options
Scan Tool is a professional PC diagnostics scan tool for all OBDII
(OBD2) and EOBD IV+ compliant vehicles. ACI Scan Tool allows you to read
the vehicle's diagnostic trouble codes, live vehicle sensors (including wide-band O2 sensors), actuate bi-directional controls, reset adaptations, and view inspection/maintenance system test results to quickly determine what service the vehicle requires.
What ACI OBD2 Scan Tool can do for you?
the professional repair business getting as much coverage as you can is
important to effectively and quickly service any vehicle. We offer
enhanced coverage options for 43 car brands: Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM-family,
Chrysler family Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Mazda, Nissan/Infiniti, BMW/MINI,
Land Rover, Honda/Acura, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Porsche, Mercedes,
Hyundai/Kia, Jaguar, and Audi/VW.
Not Simple Code Reader
you read your vehicle's trouble codes, now what? Reading the trouble
codes from your vehicle is easy. But without live data and
bi-directional controls, you may not have enough information to properly
perform the repair. Don't waste your time or money with simple code
readers or hand-held scanners. ACI OBD2 scan tool can not only read your
codes, but it can also show you live data, actuate components, and run system tests. With complete coverage, you can get the job done right the first time and prevent dreaded "comeback".
NA Emissions and European MOT
may have known that almost all states are using OBD2-based emission
testing for all 1996 and newer passenger vehicles? Now with the 2010
legislation, even the 8500 - 10000lb trucks are
required to be OBD2 complaint. If you have a Check Engine or Service
Engine Soon indicator illuminated, or a specific inspection system
monitor test fails, your vehicle will fail its emissions test. With ACI
OBD2 scan tool you can inspect your vehicle’s compliance before you wait
in line and pay for the test.
Tuning Your Vehicle
live sensors such as wide-band O2 sensors, fuel adaptation, MAF,
ignition timing advance, and lambda readings. If your vehicle supports
wide-band O2 sensors, Scan Tool can show you real-time air/fuel
mixtures. Finally, data log them all in TXT, CSV, and XML formats with
1ms sampling accuracy.
buy into claims of increased horsepower or added torque; you can verify
whether that new, expensive part really works. Do your own dynamometer
and acceleration testing at your own convenience and without having to
rent expensive dynamometer time.
OE-Level Coverage (Enhanced Interfaces)
service shops and vehicle tuners require more information than what
OBDII can provide to do their job effectively. Since the OBDII standard
covers only emissions-related powertrain systems
and sensors, there is more information you won't be able to see with a
generic OBDII scan tool. With our enhanced interface options, you can
get factory tool-like capabilities; allowing you to access hundreds of
systems (ABS, airbags, instrument cluster, etc.), sensors, and system/component-level bi-directional controls so you can do your job faster and with a greater degree of accuracy.
ACI supports non-OBDII and European models. For example, due to their excessive vehicular weight trucks like the Ford Super Duty, Chevy Duramax, and Dodge
are not required to be OBDII compliant. But with our enhanced interface
options you can now access the diagnostics capabilities of these
our European customers, our enhanced interface options also support
Audi/VW, BMW, Chrysler/Dodge, Ford, Jaguar, Mercedes, and Toyota/Lexus
diesel engines and the European-specific models.

Enhanced interface for Audi/VW (EI16) 1996-2010
enhanced Audi/VW interface supports hundreds of sensors selected from
the engine, transmission, ABS, airbag, and dozens of other systems. To
help facilitate ease-of-use for this interface, we've allowed users to
select as many sensors as they want. We also do not require that certain sensor groups to be selected in specific orders. We've also
extended our support by allowing module coverage to be externally added
by way of the Audi Information File (AIF). These files can be generated
during a network test or during a module sensor mapping test and help
extend the over all coverage of the interface untill such coverage can
be built into the software. Many of the features that Audi/VW features
offer are not consistent with other manufactures (i.e. Ford, GM) as they do not offer
component-level actuations and the sensors vary based on installed
modules. Like most aftermarket Audi/VW tools, some of the sensor
descriptions are missing, but data values can still be retrieved with
basic descriptions. It is therefore strongly recommend to use a service
manual alongside our tool while working on these vehicles.
