Delphi’s DS diagnostic software for car and light commercial vehicles, provides many built-in features for quick, easy and accurate diagnostics, including:

ISS (Intelligent System Scan): ISS scans the vehicle and displays the fault codes stored in each system, providing a quick overview of the entire vehicle and helping to pinpoint an initial diagnosis. You can then select a specific control system to further analyse the results.

ISI (Intelligent System Identification): ISI identifies and automatically selects the type of controller mounted in the vehicle. This ensures that the diagnostic session is performed correctly with the right parameters.


Report function: With the built-in report function you can add fault codes from multiple controllers in a report and show real-time graphs and data. Simply print the results for a professional report, showing customers what you have done with their vehicle.
