Re: Fuel Pressure Adapter

I believe that is an OTC quick coupler.

See Lang Tools 41327 and 60772.

Re: Understanding the battery current waveform

I was told that after the car starts and runs you should see a net current of 3 to 5 amps, but what I'm seeing is -26 amps. How does -26 amps equate to 3 to 5 amps? This spec doesn't make any sense out of context. All I can say is review this charging system video with Pete Meier and Vince Fischell...

Re: High voltage cable testing

Sorry Mr Littlejohn, I just read your previous post stating you work as a field engineer for Jeep. I did find that this model can be fully charged in 5 hours at a "standard household outlet"; or, you can charge it in 2 hours with an at-home charging station purchased separately (Jeep brand accessory...

Re: High voltage cable testing

What is the history of the vehicle? Recent auction purchase? Recent body shop visit? Since when does it set this DTC? What symptom is the concern? Since this is a 2020 or 2021 year model plug-in hybrid, consider the external HV charge cable as the cause of the DTC. Do you have the ability to plug-in...

Re: ford fiesta vibrations to the engine

I see you scoped the MAP Sensor and wastegate position sensors. This seems like wise choice. Your screen images show your math channel is on CH A. But, your channel labels show Duty Cycle on B. The gold trace(math channel) seems useless as a result of selecting A instead of B to formulate the math c...

Re: the engine does not start

I do not understand the symptom in your description. Either there is something lost in translation; or, grammar mistakes. Since you are using a 2205A, you will need to reduce the amount of time on the screen until your sample interval is low enough to reproduce the signal accurately. Even with your ...

Re: Distributerless Power & Waste Split Screen Scope

Steve, thanks for the viewports ideas. I will give those methods a try. samjesse, looks like Steve's suggestion will work depending on how many cylinders you need to capture. I was going to suggest the Pico Mixmaster PP361 with 3 channels deployed: CHA with an inductive sync probe or MI074 Secondary...

Re: How to use TA329?

djagos, Pico does not have a wireless remote tester that I am aware of. Many tire pressure warning system tools have the ability to test for wireless remote transmitters because tire pressure sensors use radio frequencies. I do not know of a tool that will take a wireless remote transmitter signal a...

Re: How to use TA329?

Hi Steve, I have just recently purchased the TA330 and get no response (0 volts) when I use the sensor to scope (4425) the signal from my 2012 Fiesta, 2007 Silverado, or 2000 Lumina. I followed and downloaded the setup for the keyless sensor test but I am not having any luck. Is there a method to t...

Re: misfire opel corsa 1,2 help

I see CH A is a custom probe "PRESION CILINDRO." Since you are not using a WPS500, your zero(atmospheric pressure) level is probably wrong due to the characteristics of your pressure transducer when exposed to heat and the dynamic pressure conditions of a running test. Do you have an analog backpres...
