AUTEL 900This blog is a continuation of a previous blog named AUTEL D900 SCAN TOOL in which I outlined its indispensability and necessary tool to repair any VAG vehicle. Anyway, I hooked up the D900 2015 version to my polo classic 2.0l highline. As can be seen below, its software is already at version 15.7 and dated July 2015 meaning that it's a huge improvement compared to the 2011 model. There are 30 vehicle manufacturers listed in the Autel 900 menu, the 28th of which is Volkswagen and the last selection is other, meaning any vehicle not listed. I did a DTC scan but there was none stored in memory. Neither was there any vehicle information nor freeze frame data. Compared to VCDS the live data is accurate. I was interested to see the coolant temperature increase while the car idled and that's exactly what I saw.
The OBD2 monitors are abbreviated and I dropped in a list for ease of identification below. Unfortunately I can't demonstrate the DTC feature since there were not DTCs to display. I verified with my VCDS to make sure that the D900 isn't saying that there isn't any while there may be some.
