Electronic Injector Test Kit
With today’s Common Rail injector technology, it’s no longer sufficient to just measure resistance to check a coil’s health – you also need to measure inductance for an immediate and accurate assessment. Previously separate tools would have been needed for this. Not with our Electronic Injector Test kit. Otherwise known as the ‘buzz tool,’ or part number YDT720, you’ll be able to quickly test the electrical integrity of all makes of solenoid Common Rail injectors on vehicle. The simple,hand-held tool measures the injectors core criteria, allowing you to quickly compare values and identify if any are not within a comparable performance range, or confirm specific electronic failures which may indicate an unrepairable injector. You can also use it in conjunction with our solvent cleaning kit to resolve early-stage lacquering. All with just one tool, saving significant time and cost for the garage.

The full kit is compliant with VM programming requirements and comes complete with a DS-Flash™ VCI, cables, a battery support unit and a laptop PC, pre-configured for key brands. Users will also benefit from our 12-month support package, which includes training and technical support for both the equipment, registration to the VM web portal and installation and use of the VM software. So from now on, jobs that were turned away, or referred back to the dealer network, can now be managed in house.
HD3000 High Pressure Diagnostic Tool
Designed for specialist workshops, our patented HD3000, part number YDT840, simplifies the diagnosis of faults with current and future-generation diesel and gasoline high pressure fuel systems, on all vehicle types. With one tool users will be able to safely set and electronically control any pressure testpoint , up to 3000 bar, in order to investigate the full range of pressures and analyse the performance of the fuel injection system – previously this level of flexibility, accuracy and pressure capability could only be achieved with a system-dedicated test bench. Containing an electronic control device, hydraulic block and electrical device, it incorporates multiple dedicated test routines, as well as an IMV cleaning procedure. All this can be achieved without changing any ECU parameter, dismantling the fuel injection system, or taking the vehicle out on a road test – helping workshops save valuable time and deliver faster service turnarounds.

False Actuator Diagnostic Kit
Designed to work in conjunction with the Sealed Rail diagnostic kit, the False Actuator kit, part number YDT410, enables interrogation of the pump when a reduction in Common Rail system pressure has been identified. Simply fit the false actuator when maximum pressure cannot be generated using the sealed rail and vehicle actuator, to allow the pump to generate full system pressure. If the pump generates the correct pressure, then the vehicle actuator is considered faulty and should be replaced. On the other hand, if the pressure is still below the required level then there is a mechanical failure within the pump. It’s as easy as that!

Fuel Injection Diagnostics
Due to the design of today’s advanced fuel injection technology, electronic diagnostic tools require additional support to accurately trace faulty components – the ECU diagnostic software can often go no further than failure mode identification, which does not always pinpoint the particular part of the system that has failed and can result in the unnecessary replacement of complete systems. That’s where we come in. We know exactly what is required when diagnosing this technology – after all, the chances are we designed and manufactured it in the first place. So, we’ve developed a range of simple, low-cost, on-vehicle diesel diagnostic tools to help you and your customer save time and money.

Sealed Rail Diagnostic Kit
Because Common Rail systems operate at extremely high pressures, any loss in pressure will have a knock-on effect on the vehicle – causing a progressive reduction in power and even a complete engine shut down. It is therefore imperative that any such issues are identified and resolved as early as possible. We have just the answer. Our Sealed Rail diagnostic kit, part number YDT850, provides simple, low-cost on-vehicle capability for all makes of Common Rail pumps and injectors. Consisting of a sealed rail pressure tester and injector back leakage measurement equipment, users can check the pressure being generated by a Common Rail pump and identify individual injectors that fail, meaning only faulty components will need to be replaced.
