Will scangague2 read codes like a solus

i know there are some codes that the cheap scanner i have is not picking up. When i had my trans repaired, the guy had a solus and gave me some codes...high side open/close. i cant recall the exact codes, but the cheapo scanner i got doesnt pick them up. I have since repaired the wiring in the uvch and the uvch. basically, will a scangauge2 read these items like a solus, and actually give me live data of the trucks operations. thanks

Re: Will scangague2 read codes like a solus

Um, NO, it won't. ScanGauge II is NOT the AeroForce Scan-gauge. Two different companies, two different products. The ScanGauge II only reads conventional OBD-II data; I tried one on both our OBS PSDs, and was only able to read speed and RPM. And it did the same as any cheap generic scanner would do, when I tried to scan for codes, it stalled the engine.

It is programmable using a simple register language they call 'X-gauge", and I've always suspected that one could, with some research and persistence, determine the right X-Gauge codes to read more live data from our trucks, and perhaps even scan for codes, and do tests like the buzz and CC test. So far I've seen no indication that anyone has come up with these code, or that anyone has determined whether it's possible and gone down the road of developing the codes.

If there is evidence to the contrary, there are folks in the OBS sections of ALL the various diesel forums who would be all ears....

Re: Will scangague2 read codes like a solus

oops, I stand corrected.. I was thinking of a new version of the aeroforce. I have not operated an SG2 but they discuss them all the time in the 6.0 forums. Thats what I get for reporting an assumption...my bad. carry on.
