Actron U-Scan coverage includes Airbag codes

Posted on January 14, 2014

Bosch Automotive Service Solutions LLC has released Actron Airbag coverage for its U-Scan dongle + app code reader pairing, allowing access to vehicle codes and definitions specific to Airbag warning lights.

Airbag codes are also paired with CodeConnect to help easily identify and fix vehicles. Previously, this data was only available in scan tools at a significantly higher price point, notes Actron.

“Our customers have been asking for this since U-Scan’s release, an important update in knowing what’s happening with their vehicles,” says Jennifer Grabowski, Actron product manager of Diagnostics.

“With the addition of airbag coverage, U-Scan provides professional grade diagnostics. As with other U-Scan in-app upgrades, users need only purchase coverage for the vehicles they own, or all makes and models.”

Actron says several common reasons exist for an Airbag warning light in a vehicle, including: a vehicle was involved in a collision; an Airbag sensor stops working; airbag network wires are broken, pinched or otherwise not working properly.

“The major issue here is safety,” adds Grabowski. “Our customers want to ensure a vehicle is safe to drive, and checking airbag codes can help determine a fix for a safer vehicle.”

In addition to expanded coverage, base U-Scan upgrades include improved support for iOS7, U-Scan Mart coverage chart to check vehicle coverage, and minor bug fixes including those affecting in-app upgrades.

The upgrade will be available in both the Google Play and iTunes store for download.

Plugging directly into a vehicle’s OBD II port, U-Scan helps users instantly communicate with their vehicle via the U-Scan app on their iOS or Android device. Using Bluetooth wireless connectivity, U-Scan assists vehicle owners in diagnosing and resolving automotive issues, saving time and money.
