Using Mode $06 with Autel Maxidas DS708
Posted to Tool & Equipment Forum on 3/7/2013 7 Replies

Hi everyone, I am looking for some input on utilizing the Mode $06 or "On-Board monitor" Feature on the Autel scanner.

I really enjoy how quick it will pull up the information and clearly present the hexidecimal information for you

What does it mean?

I am assuming any of the tests that have values in "red" mean that monitor is failing and is pending a check enigne light fault

I can not seem to find information to help translate the info. Just basic web pages that show simple translations.

Alldata is kind enough to put "some" information in text but very little and very vague

I found an app for my Android phone that is really helpfull, but still little to no explanation and I am not completely sure I am using it properly.

Where is the best source for the $06 translation information and what do you guys use on a regular basis for checking your work after repairs are performed?
