Vehicle Diagnostic Tester System
Model: VAS5052
Superseded To:


Fault readers V.A.G 1551 and V.A.G 1552 have been in operation for many years supporting fault finding and service work on electronic vehicle systems. Today`s vehicle technology, however, demands new equipment. In the autumn of 2001, the support concept for modern vehicle systems is rounded off with the introduction of the vehicle diagnosis and service information system VAS 5052. Meanwhile, for fault finding in electronic vehicle systems, VAS 5051 has easily proven itself with the functions "test instruments" and "guided fault finding". The gap in vehicle service work is closed with VAS 5052 with functions such as interrogating fault memory of all control units, update programming of all control units or resetting service interval display. All diagnosis information is available to the service technician on the 12.1" high resolution TFT screen (touch-screen) of the highly mobile equipment. The scan tool mode of operation allows the prescribed transfer of data within the scope of the European On-Board Diagnosis (E-OBD) from and to exhaust gas influencing control units from all vehicle manufacturers. Service information such as service schedules, current flow diagrams etc (ELSA) are shown on the screen and thus considerably reduce the amount of paper needed for conveying such information. The necessary information is available directly at the vehicle and is very up-to-date. The equipment features interfaces for access to service information on local servers or the internet. Service information for independent workshops is offered on CD-ROM and on the internet (erWin = electronic repair and workshop information). This way the equipment offers the complete solution (hard and software) for diagnosis and service information for Volkswagen and non-Volkswagen dealerships/workshops. The multimedia capabilities of the equipment further allow direct inclusion in the new service training concept (multimedia training) from Volkswagen.
