Durametric Diagnostic Tool


Recommended Posts

I tried to use the Diagnostic Tool today on my 01 S (DME 7.2).

It read the fault codes and cleared them, the vehicle identification was correct but the Actual Values displayed were either blanks or illogical (e.g.temperature readings of -minus).

Do you have any opinions/experience on the matter? Is the tool supposed to perform all functions with all models/years, or is the Durametric Tool limited to fault code reading/deleting at present on certain cars?

Thanks

If the engine was not running then that would be normal for some readings. You will get the same readings (under the same conditions) with a PST2.

Here is a screenshot of my car with just the ignition switch on - cold engine overnight.

You can also look in your log file and should see a list of readings taken.

Also, make sure you have the latest version 2.1 just came out a few days ago. You can always download the latest version at their site.

By coincidence, in the meantime we received a support e-mail from Durametric saying among other things:

"We recently became aware that Actual Values on some versions of Motronic 7.2 are not working correctly. We are working on fixing this problem and will hopefully have it resolved within a few weeks at most. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

So this seems to be our problem.

But even on your read-out Loren the exhaust temp. is incorrect (-54 F)
