Vehicle manufacturers spend so much effort creating PIDs and Scan Tool functions that are almost never used. There’s no reference to most of them in flow charts, and definitions are almost impossible to find. We’re left to fend for ourselves, but we have assembled some great solutions for choosing PIDs and controls, interpreting results, and determining units and meaning when it makes no sense.

Maybe more importantly, with High Level Indicators as a foundation, you can quickly move most PIDs into our favorite new category of ‘true but useless’. Quickly eliminating the dumb stuff really helps clear your head during diagnosis. As Sherlock Holmes stated, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth”. He would have been a great tech.

Coverage includes:

  • When Generic PIDs are better
  • The case for limited Mode $06
  • Managing customer expectations during layered repairs
  • High Level Indicator techniques & practice
  • Detailed PID comparison tables
  • Using wiring diagrams to determine what PIDs really mean
  • Lots of examples!

This seminar and manual were built by analyzing everyday diagnostics to find the best way to leverage PIDs, controls and code definitions. This path is rarely the same as the published flow chart and is almost always a lot shorter. Whether you’re just starting in diagnostics or have decades of experience, you’ll find something practical that can be applied immediately.
