MaxiDiag MD806 Pro Service:
The MaxiDiag MD806 Pro provide ABS, SRS (Airbag), Engine, Transmission, Oil Reset, EPB, DPF, SAS, BMS, Throttle and Adjust A/F functions for most modern vehicles on the road today. Select the Service function from the Main Menu to access the special functions.
1. Oil Reset:
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. An oil change is required whenever indicated by the display and according to the recommended maintenance schedule.Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is change dprior to a service indicator being turned on, also reset the system.
This electric parking brake (EPB) function has a multitude of uses to maintain the electronic braking systems safely and effectively.
1). Ensure that you are fully familiar with the braking system and its operation before commencing any work.
2). The EPB control system may be required to be deactivated before carrying out any maintenance/diagnostic work on the brake system.This can be done from the tool menu.
3). Only carry out maintenance work when the vehicle is stationary and on level ground.
4). Ensure that the EPB control system is reactivated after the maintenance work has been completed.
Steering Angle Sensor Calibration permanently stores the current steering wheel position as the straight-ahead position in the steering angle sensor EEPROM. Therefore, the front wheels and the steering wheel must be set exactly to the straight-ahead position before calibration. In addition, the vehicle identification number is also read from the instrument cluster and stored permanently in the steering angle sensor EEPROM. On successful completion of calibration, the steering angle sensor fault memory isautomatically cleared
The DPF function allows you to carry out numerous functions on the Diesel Particulate Filter system without having to send your car to a main dealer.The tool will manage DPF regeneration, DPF component replacement teach-in and DPF teach-in after replacing the engine control unit.
The BMS (Battery Management System) allows the scan tool to evaluate the battery charge state, monitor the close-circuit current, register the battery replacement, activate the rest state of the vehicle, and charge the battery via the diagnostic socket.
MaxiDiag MD806 Pro All System Diagnostic Functions:
1. OBD II Diagnostics:
The OBD II Diagnostics function is a fast-access option that allows you to carry out a quick test on the drive train systems of OBD II vehicles.When more than one vehicle control module is detected by the scan tool,you will be prompted to select the module where the data may be retrieved.The most often to be selected are the Power-train Control Module [PCM] and Transmission Control Module [TCM].
Select this function to display the system status of the test vehicle, refer to the following description for the system status of the test vehicle.
1. OK – indicates that the monitor being checked has completed its diagnostic testing.
2. INC – indicates that the monitor being checked has not completed its diagnostic testing.
3. N/A – indicates that the monitor is not supported on that vehicle.
2. Read Codes:
Read Codes can be done with the key on engine off (KOEO) or with the key on engine running (KOER). This function is used to read the detailed information of a particular diagnostic trouble code for technicians to better solve the problem.
3. Erase Codes:
Erase Codes is performed with key on engine off (KOEO). This function is used to delete diagnostic trouble code when the fault the caused the specific DTC is fixed.
4. Record Data:
The Record Data function allows recording vehicle modules’ Parameter Identification (PID) data to help diagnose intermittent vehicle problems. You could save data files to the Micro SD card and then use the Playback function to view the saved files.
5. Freeze Frame:
Freeze Frame Data allows the technician to view the vehicle’s operating parameters at the moment a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) is detected.For example, the parameters may include engine speed (RPM), engine coolant temperature (ECT), or vehicle speed sensor (VSS) etc. This information will aid the technician by allowing the parameters to be duplicated for diagnostic and repair purposes.
6. I/M Readiness:
I/M Readiness function is used to check the operations of the Emission System on OBD II compliant vehicles. It is an excellent function to use prior to having a vehicle inspected for compliance to a state emission program.
7. O2 Monitor Test:
OBD II regulations set by SAE require the relevant vehicle monitors and tests on the oxygen (O2) sensors to identify problems related to fuel efficiency and vehicle emissions. These tests are not on-demand tests and they are done automatically when engine operating conditions are within specified limits. These test results are saved in the on-board computer's memory.
8. On-Board Monitor Test:
The On-Board Monitor Test is useful after servicing or after erasing a vehicle’s control module memory. The On-Board Monitor Test is used for non-CAN-equipped vehicles to retrieve and display test results for emission-related power train components and systems that are not continuously monitored. This function is also used for CAN-equipped vehicles to retrieve and display test results for emission-related power train components and systems that are continuously and non-continuously monitored. Test and components IDs are determined by the vehicle manufacturer.
9. Component Test:
The Component Test function allows initiating a leak test for the vehicle's EVAP system. The scan tool itself does not perform the leak test, but commands the vehicle's on-board computer to start the test. Different vehicle manufacturers might have different criteria and methods for stopping the test once it has been started. Before starting the Component Test, refer to the vehicle service manual for instructions to stop the test.
10. Vehicle Information:
The Vehicle Info. function enables retrieval of Vehicle Identification No.(VIN), Calibration ID Nos. (CINs), Calibration Verification Nos. (CVNs) and In-use Performance Tracking on 2000 and newer vehicles that support Mode 9.
11. Modules Present:
The Modules Present function allows viewing of the module IDs and communication protocols for OBD II modules in the vehicle.
12. DTC Lookup:
The DTC Lookup function allows user to search definitions of DTC stored in built-in DTC library

Autel MD806 Pro Review: Super Worth The Money
Autel MaxiDiag MD806 Pro diagnostic scan tool is of course cheap to buy. It was $239 dollars on auteldiag.com which is an absolutely ideal scan tool in my opinion. I got the tool and the case last week, it is including a quick guide and the USD cable. That is the case, look, it is nice big and sturdy.
I’ll give you a quick demonstration. This is the OBD2 cable, it is quite small, but can fit very snugly in my car. Turn on the ignition, okay, it is power on now, there are 6 function buttons on the main menu. I will test the “Scan” function first.
Scan >> European >> Vauxhall >> (4)2004 >> Astra-G
This is not a full system scanner, there are 4 modules you can scan in the vehicle: engine, body, chassis and transmission.
Engine >> Search engine
I just do it over a general scan, it is automatically picked up that we have a fault codes. Click it to show the details, fault codes is P0141-8 Intermittent. It can return back to erase the codes as well.
Now I gonna exit to system menu to select “Z 20 LET”, I can also perform ECU identification, read codes, erase codes and live data here.
Live data >> Data list
All the live data you can look at the screen, it is really a good tool for the money.
Let’s go into OBD2 function generally. Just read codes again. The diagnostic menu including system status, read codes, erase codes, live dta, freeze frame, I/M readiness, O2 monitor test, on-board monitor test, component test, vehicle info, modules present and DTC lookup.
Now let’s go to service function, you can do a service like oil reset, EPB, SAS, DPF, BMS, Throttle. You can go into the function to select region and car model for maintenance service.
Overall, Autel MD806 Pro Diagnostic Tool is absolutely super valuable for the money that I will definitely recommend it.
