1 General notes on operation
Structure of the user interface
The user interface of the Offboard Diagnostic Information System Engineering application is split up
into four sections:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Header
Function view
Expandable side bar, right
Status line
1.1 Header
The status of vehicle communication is displayed in the header. It is split up into two sections (from
left to right):
Vehicle project and identification
Veh. project (e.g.: VW36x)
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 4 von 64
Veh. ID = vehicle chassis number (e.g.: WVWZZZ1K9ZE206545)
Connection status
Veh. connection (e.g.: VAS5054 - corresponds to the diagnostic interface identified)
Veh. status (e.g.: ---, term.30, term.15)
This information is filled out as soon as it is determined by the application and is always kept up-todate. As long as the information has not been determined, the corresponding field is indicated by "---".
1.2 Status line
This area is for displaying the status of program modes (indication of trace active, etc.) and for configuring protocol and trace settings. The respective contents are described at the corresponding program
functions.
1.3 Expandable side bar
The side bar on the right side of the screen has buttons, which are not required constantly during a
diagnostic session and which can therefore be hidden to increase the size of the display area. The ">>"
and "<<" buttons can be used to open or close the sidebar.
The two buttons at the top in the "Modes" field can be used to select "Diagnostic Tester" and "Administration" modes. When the application is started, the "Diagnostics" perspective is active. The side
bar also provides additional setting options for global functions:
1. Log: Functions for creating a result log.
2. Build status documentation: Using non-vehicle-specific functions of the build status documentation,
3. Macros: Recording macros
4. Trace: For using the trace function,
5. Help: For accessing the online help or sending a support request,
6. Info: Information on the installed software.
7. Extras
1.4 Function views
Start screen
The function views are displayed on the left of the application window.
When the program is started, the start screen appears there initially. It enables the selection of a vehicle project using a drop-down menu. The list contains all vehicle projects available in the system, as
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 5 von 64
well as the entry: "VIS start-up". If this entry is selected, the application uses the vehicle identification
number itself to search for the corresponding project. Otherwise, the project specified by the user is
loaded. Automatic or manual loading of the project is triggered using the "►" button under the dropdown menu. After successfully loading the project, the "Control unit list" view is displayed. An "Info"
icon is displayed next to the combobox for selecting a project. Left-click on the "Info" icon to open the
"index.xml" file of the vehicle project selected at the combobox in the computer's standard browser.
After left-clicking on the "Info" icon of the "Automatic" project, the application runs the process with
the "index.xml" file of the currently loaded project. If no "index.xml" file is available or if no project
has been loaded yet in the event of the "Automatic" project, pressing the "Info" button is acknowledged by a dialogue: "No project information available". Any open result tabs are automatically closed
when a project is changed. (Renewed) diagnostic start-up with the selected project is not initiated until
the "Start" button is pressed.
If the user presses the "Diagnostic end" button (Eject icon), the application is reset to its initial state,
i.e. all result tabs are closed and no project is loaded.
Control unit list view
The control unit list view is opened using a tab with a car symbol on the very left. Its structure is described in more detail in the "Control unit list" chapter.
Result views
If a diagnostic or vehicle function is to be executed, operation and the function's results are displayed
in a corresponding result view.
A variable number of views can be created during runtime on request by the user. Like the tabs of the
control unit list, the tabs of these views are arranged at the bottom edge of the function view area.
Every tab (i.e. the corresponding instance) is assigned to a specific diagnostic function. Several views
can be created for every diagnostic function (depending on what can be displayed practically on the
screen). Only one result view is opened for the same diagnostic function for a specific control unit,
even if the user selects the function again from the "Control unit list" view. Only one result view is
created for every vehicle-wide function, as well. Up to nine result views can be created to display
measured values. Each of the created views is given a unique name by default, to distinguish it from
the existing views. The name consists of a prefix, which corresponds to the diagnostic address of the
diagnosed control unit, and a postfix, which represents the corresponding diagnostic function. Prefix
and postfix are separated by the character string " – ". The "VEH" prefix is used for functions across
all control units. For space reasons, the postfix size is limited to a maximum of three characters. The
postfixes are assigned according to the following system:

Table 1.1 Prefixes view
A number in the range of 1-9 is added to the "MW" prefix for the "Measured values" diagnostic function, according to the sequence numbers of the open Measured value tabs.
1.5 Control functions of tables in ODIS Engineering
The result views use tables at many points as display and input elements. Every table can be sorted
alphabetically in ascending or descending order by a column by left-clicking on this column heading.
Clicking on the column heading again reverses the sort order. The default setting for the first click is
sorting alphabetically in ascending order or according to ODX data input for all tables. Columns with
numeric content only are sorted numerically in ascending order instead. The current sort order is indicated by a small, triangular arrow in the column header. Certain tables deviate from this general procedure in terms of the context (e.g. sorting by groups, deviating sort order). This is described separately in the corresponding chapter.
1.5.1 Filter function for tables
There is a general filter function for table contents. If a view has a filter field, a text field labelled "Filter" is inserted, left-justified, below the corresponding table. After entering a filter text in the text field,
only those table contents are displayed that contain the entered "filter text" directly as a text component. In this case, interpretation of the input is not case-sensitive. In the case of a multi-column table
or tree table, only the content of the first column is used to evaluate the filter. In the case of a tree table, only the first level is used to evaluate the filter. If a tree table element is hidden using the filter
function, its subordinate elements are also hidden. Use the shortcut "Ctrl + F" to transfer the input
focus to the input window. The filter function is applied immediately for every entry in the text field.

1.6 Displaying text for control units with ODX data input
In the Administration area (General), the user has the option of choosing between the following settings for displaying text for control units with ODX data input:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Displaying the translated customer service texts
Displaying the translated customer service texts with TI
Displaying the long names from the ODX data
Displaying the short names from the ODX file
Special handling in the event of blank customer service text (TI MAS00194)
1.6.1 "Displaying the translated customer service texts" display
mode
To display names, values and units of control units with ODX data input, for text identifiers (TI) with
data input the corresponding customer service text (CS text) is used from the customer service reference table (CS table) in the language set in the ODIS Engineering application. If the CS text is not
available in the CS table in the set language, for TI with data input the information to be displayed
must be taken directly from the ODX data. A distinction needs to be made between the following
cases:
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has data input, the long name is displayed with the prefix "[LN]_".
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has no data input, the short name is displayed with the
prefix "[SN]_".
If it is a TEXTTABLE entry, the TEXTTABLE entry is displayed with the prefix "[VN]_".
If it is a unit, the DISPLAY-NAME needs to be displayed with the prefix "[UN]_". To display names,
values and units of control units with ODX data input, for TI without data input the information to be
displayed must be taken directly from the ODX data. A distinction needs to be made between the following cases:
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has data input, the long name is displayed with the prefix "[LO]_".
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has no data input, the short name is displayed with the
prefix "[SO]_".
If it is a TEXTTABLE entry, the TEXTTABLE entry is displayed with the prefix "[VO]_".
If it is a unit, the DISPLAY-NAME needs to be displayed with the prefix "[UO]_". If selected accordingly in the "Administration" view (cf. Chapter 6), TI precedes the customer service text. A space
character is used as separator.

1.6.2 "Displaying the long names from the ODX data" display mode
In this display mode, the ODX data is always accessed directly instead of displaying the customer
service texts, regardless of the TI's data input. If the TI has data input, a distinction needs to be made
between the following cases:
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has data input, the long name is displayed with the prefix "[LN]_".
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has no data input, the short name is displayed with the
prefix "[SN]_".
If it is a TEXTTABLE entry, the TEXTTABLE entry is displayed with the prefix "[VN]_".
If it is a unit, the DISPLAY-NAME is be displayed with the prefix "[UN]_". If the TI does not have
data input, a distinction needs to be made as follows:
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has data input, the long name is displayed with the prefix "[LO]_".
If it is a parameter name and if the long name has no data input, the short name is displayed with the
prefix "[SO]_".
If it is a TEXTTABLE entry, the TEXTTABLE entry is displayed with the prefix "[VO]_".
If it is a unit, the DISPLAY-NAME needs to be displayed with the prefix "[UO]_".
1.6.3 "Displaying the short names from the ODX data" display mode
In this display mode, the ODX data is always accessed directly, regardless of the TI's data input. No
customer service texts are displayed. In the case of TI with data input, a distinction is made between
the following cases:
If it is a parameter name, the short name is displayed with the prefix "[SN]_".
If it is a TEXTTABLE entry, the TEXTTABLE entry is displayed with the prefix "[VN]_".
If it is a unit, the DISPLAY-NAME needs to be displayed with the prefix "[UN]_". In the case of TI
without data input, a distinction is made between the following cases:
If it is a parameter name, the short name is displayed with the prefix "[SO]_".
If it is a TEXTTABLE entry, the TEXTTABLE entry is displayed with the prefix "[VO]_".
If it is a unit, the DISPLAY-NAME needs to be displayed with the prefix "[UO]_".

3 Presets
Presets are for saving settings and configurations defined by the operator once, which can then be
called repeatedly. They can be found in every view in which the operator is able to configure or select
the content and display information.
Two control elements can be used to select the functions for presets described below.
Available presets can be selected using the combobox on the left. For this, the names of all preset elements are listed that apply to the selected control unit type (control address) and the selected functions.
The selection of a preset adapts the corresponding display according to the information in the loaded
preset. Furthermore, the name for a new preset to be created can be entered in the combobox.
The "Preset…" button opens a popup menu for accessing various operations for a preset.
The "Save" menu item is for saving the currently set configuration as a preset. This entry is only active
if the user has manually entered a new name for a preset to be created in the edit field of the combobox. The user can delete the selected preset using "Delete". The "Restore" entry enables the parameters to be reset to the contents in the preset after a modification of the parameters. "Import" and "Export" can be used to exchange a preset between different installations of the application. After pressing
the corresponding button, a file selection dialogue appears. For export, a name must be specified under
which the active preset is then saved. During import the preset is transferred to the application under
the name specified in the exchange file. The "Empty" menu item can be used to undo the selection of a
preset.
4 Diagnostic start-up
4.1 Start performance
When the application is started, the "Control units" view is open. In the "Selection and feedback" area,
only the text "Please connect to the vehicle and press Start" is displayed in a format-filling manner. In
the "Function navigation" area, the user has the option of selecting a vehicle project or of pressing the
"Start" button. This button has a large green arrow pointing to the right. The vehicle project is selected
from a drop-down list. If the user presses "Start" without having selected a project, the preset vehicle
project is selected. As an alternative to pressing the button, a double-click opens a list item for immediate diagnostic start-up.
4.2 Vehicle selection
Diagnostic Over IP (DoIP) allows connections to vehicles to be established via Ethernet or Internet. A
selection list of vehicles can be displayed that can be accessed via the test computer. Regardless of the
VCI setting configured by the user, Diagnosis over IP (DoIP) vehicles (i.e. DoIP VCIs) can be selected in the application. If the user presses a button with the "(several vehicles)" icon, ("vehicle selection" tooltip), a vehicle selection list is opened. If a vehicle project is currently loaded, the confirmaODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 12 von 64
tion dialogue for closing the current project is displayed. To display the vehicle selection list, a DoIPcompatible D-PDU API is loaded. As soon as this is done, a vehicle search (broadcast) is performed in
the network. There is an adjustable timeout in the Administration area for this. It can be entered with a
resolution that is precise to the second (default value of 2 seconds). If no available DoIP vehicle is
determined after a timeout, "No vehicle available" is displayed instead of vehicles in the list. The first
time the vehicle list is determined, the vehicle at the very top is selected. The user can start a new vehicle search using a "Refresh" button. A vehicle already selected before this refreshing, is selected
again after refreshing, provided it is still included in the vehicle list. Otherwise, the vehicle at the very
top of the list is selected. If the list of DoIP-capable vehicles is displayed, the "Diagnostic start-up"
button is only active if a vehicle is selected in the vehicle list. If the user selects the "Diagnostic startup" function while the vehicle list is displayed, diagnostic start-up is performed with the vehicle selected. Double-clicking on a vehicle and pressing the Return key also initiates diagnostic start-up with
the selected vehicle project. "Automatic" project selection" is also possible during diagnostic start-up.
If the user selects "Automatic" diagnostic start-up, the diagnostic start-up step "Determine VIN via
VWVIN" is skipped and the project assigned to the VIN is loaded directly.
4.3 Managing vehicle designations
During development and extensive testing, vehicles are not primarily identified according to their
VIN. There are internal vehicle numbers there, which are used for the identification of the vehicles. By
assigning the VIN to the vehicle designation, it can also be displayed in the application and changed.
For different users to be able to use the same vehicle designations, they can be made available to the
application on network drives. The known vehicle designation is displayed in the vehicle selection for
all vehicles. The user can edit all vehicle designations in the list. The input field for vehicle designations allows a maximum of 20 characters to be entered. If the user edits a vehicle designation, it is
immediately entered in the vehicle designation file. The user can enter a link to the vehicle designation
file in the Administration area. If a vehicle designation cannot be determined for a VIN using the vehicle designation file, a blank vehicle designation is displayed for this vehicle. The vehicle designation
is also re-determined if the application detects that the diagnostic interface has been changed. In the
VDS dialogue of the build status documentation the vehicle designation is used as the internal vehicle
number.
4.4 Selecting the diagnostic interface
Selecting diagnostic interfaces in the ODIS tester applications is influenced by the connection between
the tester PC and the diagnostic interface. With DoIP and VAS6154, exactly one diagnostic interface
or vehicle is no longer assigned to every tester PC due to the direct connection. In fact, it must be possible in the tester PC to make a selection from a predefined number of diagnostic interfaces or vehicles
of the same type. The function is for the unambiguous identification and selection of a diagnostic interface.
If the user presses the "VCI" button, the application opens a modal dialogue. It displays the currently
selected diagnostic hardware type, the currently selected diagnostic hardware serial number and - if
available - the individual diagnostic hardware ID. If the serial number was not specified, "Not defined"
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 13 von 64
is displayed instead of the serial number. If the diagnostic hardware ID was not specified, "Not defined" is displayed instead of the diagnostic hardware ID.
The dialogue provides the following selection:




"Change diagnostic hardware",
"Configure diagnostic hardware" (for diagnostic hardware type VAS6154 only),
"Display diagnostic hardware detailed information"
"Cancel" (closes the dialogue)
If the user presses the "Change diagnostic hardware" button, the application deregisters the diagnostic
hardware, switches to a new dialogue view and reads the list of VCIs connected. All DoIPVCIs are
omitted. The VCIs that can be selected are displayed in the fields "Type of diagnostic hardware", "Serial number" and (if available) the "ID" (PersonalVciID). The currently selected type/serial number
combination is displayed on a blue background. For the coming diagnostic sessions, the user selects
the diagnostic hardware to be used with the selection bar and by pressing the "Select" button. The
sequence program then connects to the selected diagnostic hardware. Then, the program jumps back to
the "Current diagnostic hardware" dialogue and displays the new selection.
If the "Display diagnostic hardware detailed information" button is pressed, the application connects to
the selected diagnostic hardware and queries the version information of the diagnostic hardware connected. It is then displayed in the dialogue box: "Information on the diagnostic hardware". After pressing the "Continue" button, the program updates the diagnostic hardware list and connects to the selected diagnostic hardware. Then, the "Current diagnostic hardware" dialogue is displayed again.
4.5 Selecting the vehicle project
The projects that can be selected are provided to the user in a drop-down list. This default project is
visible in the line that is always visible in this list on starting the application. In the subsequent program run, the project selected by the user is displayed. During the program run, the user can select a
new vehicle project at any time. For this, a modal confirmation dialogue, "Do you want to change the
vehicle project and perform a new diagnostic start-up? All result views will be closed." (question mark
icon) must be confirmed with "Yes". The focus is initially at "No". If you confirm it with "Yes", all
result views are initially closed and a new diagnostic start-up is performed with the newly selected
vehicle project. That also applies if the user selects the currently used project again.
An "Info" icon is displayed next to the combobox for selecting a project. If you left-click on the "Info"
icon, the application displays the "index.xml" file of the vehicle project selected at the combobox in
the computer's standard browser. After left-clicking on the "Info" icon of the "Automatic" project, the
application runs the process with the "index.xml" file of the currently loaded project.
Any open result tabs are automatically closed when a project is changed. (Renewed) diagnostic startup with the selected project is not initiated until the "Start" button is pressed.

4.6 Customer service configuration of project start-up
An "Automatic CS" entry is for enabling diagnostic start-up that only applies customer service specifications for DIDB, MCD projects and VPT/VRT. This is primarily for ensuring the consistent execution of GFF programs with the corresponding MCD data. For this purpose, the application provides an
entry in the project list designated as "Automatic CS". After unloading the diagnostic project, the application resets the configuration of the VPT/VRT table back to the configuration selected in the administration for customer service or TE data, as well as the path for the MCD projects. The application
provides the user with the option in the administration of permanently setting the use of customer service MCD projects and customer service VPT/VRT. It also provides the user with the option in the
administration of permanently setting the use of user-specific MCD projects and user-specific
VPT/VRT tables. The application also an option in the administration of specifying the path to the
user-specific MCD projects and the path to a user-specific VPT/VRT configuration. Those projects are
displayed in the project list that correspond to the user configuration set in the administration. If the
user closes the MCD project after an "Automatic CS" diagnostic start-up, the application displays
those projects in the project list again that correspond to his application configuration. The application
displays the path for the customer service-specific DIDB in disabled form for information in the administration. The application must provide an administration setting for a path to the DIDB with specific user contents. The application displays the administration setting for the path to the DIDB with
user-specific contents with the message: "For test purposes only - no online update of the contents". If
project start-up took place in ODIS Engineering in "Automatic CS" mode, the application applies the
customer service-specific DIDB for subsequent use in the program. If project start-up did not take
place in ODIS Engineering in "Automatic CS" mode and the user entered a path to the DIDB in the
administration, the application applies the user-specific DIDB for subsequent use in the program.
4.7 Automatic diagnostic start-up via the VIN
With this option, the application attempts to determine the best-suited vehicle project itself according
to the VIN read out of the vehicle connected. If the user selected "VIS start-up", an attempt is made
first to read it out of the connected vehicle. If reading fails or if an invalid VIN is determined, all
available vehicle projects are offered in the dialogue box described below. If a VIN was determined, a
locally managed table is first searched for an assignment of this VIN to a vehicle project. If there is
such an assignment, the corresponding project is selected. If there is no assignment or if the local table
does not exist, a selection is made using the VRT/VPT mechanism. If several possible vehicle projects
are found, they are displayed to the user in a drop-down list for subsequent selection. This list is displayed in a modal dialogue box. After confirming the dialogue with "OK", the project specified by the
user is selected. To cancel diagnostic start-up, press the "Cancel" button. The selected vehicle project
is then transferred to the local assignment table. If it does not yet exist, it is created at this point.
4.8 Unloading a project
If the user presses the "Diagnostic end" button (Eject icon), the application is reset to its initial state,
i.e. all result tabs are closed and no project is loaded. The application displays a confirmation dialogue.
In this dialogue, the option for "Yes - stop" is selected by default. If the currently used project was
loaded from the vehicle list, the vehicle list is displayed again after closing the project. If the vehicle
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 15 von 64
list is displayed after closing the project, it is updated once. The same vehicle is selected in the list that
was used previously in the diagnostic session.
4.9 Evaluating the installation list(s)
After the application has created a control unit list based on the selected vehicle project, the installation list(s) of the bus master is/are evaluated. This work step is skipped if the user has deselected the
evaluation of the installation list(s) in the "Administration" view. This result means that all control
units from the vehicle project are created in a list with only one hierarchy level, i.e. flat. Installation
list information is not stored in the data structure. If the evaluation of installation lists is selected, the
bus master(s) installed in the vehicle is/are determined. There are three options:
1. No bus master is found
2. Only a central bus master is found
3. Several bus masters with installation list are found
In the first case, you can proceed as in the case described above, in which the evaluation of the installation list(s) was deselected. The second case always occurs with WP2000 gateways. This case may
also occur with UDS systems. In the third case, several control units respond to this call. The installation lists of all bus masters found are read out and the information included there is stored in the central control unit list.
5 Control unit list view
Diagnostic start-up provides a list of control units in the connected vehicle with a hierarchical structure. Depending on the results of diagnostic start-up, it may have a different appearance:
1. No gateway/bus master is installed in the vehicle, or the user has deactivated the evaluation of
the installation list(s) in the Administration area (function configuration).
2. The vehicle has a central gateway and further subordinate bus masters that are linked to each
other in a tree structure via their installation lists.
3. The vehicle has exactly one central gateway. That applies to KWPxxxx and vehicles with
mixed installation KWP / UDS.
The control unit list is initially created after diagnostic start-up and filled with the information determined during diagnostic start-up. In the first case, it is a "flat" list and in the second and third cases, a
"tree-like" list, the nodes of which represent the respective bus masters. The control units assigned to a
bus master are displayed one level lower in the tree structure.
Displaying subsystems of diagnostic classes 1 and 2
The information about any subsystems of diagnostic classes 1 and 2 is determined during the initial
selection of a diagnostic function of the main control unit. Only once the diagnostic class 1 or 2 identification data has been determined using one of the diagnostic functions, "Identification" or "Coding",
on the main control unit of a subsystem it is supplemented in the extended view. Since no information
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 16 von 64
on fault memories and no "TP selection" is possible for these systems, these two columns remain
empty. The reloading of these systems described in this chapter can be activated or deactivated in the
Administration area (function configuration). The default setting is "activated". Reading the identification data out of a subsystem of diagnostic class 1 or 2 control unit may result in a lengthy response
time.
Sorting the control unit list
The control unit list can be sorted by all columns in ascending or descending order (exception: tree
view, which is not part of the table). Sorting takes place within a hierarchy level. The sort order is
displayed in the column header. Initial sorting takes place within the hierarchy levels by the diagnostic
address (numeric). The control units are also sorted numerically in the flat view of the list.
5.1 Columns of the control unit list
Tree view
In the case of a hierarchical control unit list, the tree structure is displayed here. The control elements
for opening or closing the hierarchy levels are to be found here. All hierarchy levels with control units
of diagnostic classes 3 and 4 are open here by default. Diagnostic class 4 systems already identified
are displayed in the form of nodes in the tree structure. In the case of a "flat" list, the tree only consists
of one hierarchy level, which is always open.
Address system
This column normally contains the control address of the corresponding control unit followed by the
system designation and further information, separated by "-". If the control address is not available, the
node or LIN address is displayed. Node addresses are displayed in square brackets to be able to distinguish them from control addresses. If no address exists in the case of a subsystem, the cell remains
blank for the corresponding control unit. If a diagnostic address is not known for a control unit (former
5-baud address), "??" is displayed.
Only the system designation is entered here initially after the hyphen After initial access to the identification data of the corresponding control unit, additional identification information is also entered
here. Bus masters are indicated by a preceding icon. The installation status of the corresponding control unit is attached to the system designation if it deviates from the code in the installation list (VBL)
of the corresponding gateway. In this case, the following text is displayed in red font:
Not coded => available.
If coded in the corresponding bus master as not installed, but identified as actual or additional installation and/or available.
Coded => not identified.
If coded in the corresponding bus master as installed, but identified by the bus master as installed.
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 17 von 64
Coded => communication faulty.
If coded in the corresponding bus master, but cannot be accessed by the application.
Sleep icon
If the sleep bit is set, a corresponding icon is displayed in the "SB" column.
GW information
The bus identifier and/or the protocol combination of the corresponding control unit - if available is/are displayed in this column.
DTC
This column is initially filled with information from the customer service bit of the corresponding
control unit from the installation list of the respective bus master. As soon as the fault memory of a
control unit is read in the context of a diagnostic function, the number of faults in this control unit is
entered in the corresponding cell. If a subtree is closed under a bus master, a "lightning" symbol is
displayed at this item here if there is an event in one on the non-visible control units.
TP selection
This column contains a drop-down list for every control unit with protocol combinations determined
from data input that can be selected by the user. The selected protocol is used for communication with
the control unit. In addition to explicit protocol entries, the list also has a blank entry for automatic
selection, which is pre-selected by default.
Updating the control unit list in cycles
The dynamic contents of the control unit list are activated in cycles if the "Control units" view is active. The user can activate or deactivate this update in the "Administration (function configuration)"
view (default: "active"). The user can also set the duration of the refresh interval between 0 and 999
seconds here.
Selecting a control unit from the control unit list
After the initial creation of the control unit list, the control unit is selected in the top row. The user has
three different ways of selecting another control unit:
1. By a simple mouse click
2. Line-by-line using the cursor keys é and ê
3. By directly entering the control address

5.2 Selecting diagnostic functions for a control unit
As soon as a control unit is selected from the control unit list, the functions supported by this control
unit are determined. With KWP1281, all functions available with this protocol are displayed. The determined functions are listed in a function menu arranged to the right of the control unit list. The restriction of the functions displayed can de deactivated in the Administration area (function configuration) so that all diagnostic functions can be displayed as an option. The diagnostic functions are displayed in hierarchical form. Further sub-entries can be opened under the main entry and used to select
specific versions of the corresponding diagnostic function. The respective entries are described for
each diagnostic function in the corresponding chapters.
If an entry in the function menu is selected via mouse click, the corresponding diagnostic function can
be triggered by pressing "Enter <┘" on the keyboard. Double-clicking on an entry has the same effect.
If the input focus is still in the control unit list, the user can use the "Space" or "TAB ->▌" key to
switch to the function menu. Selecting entries from the function menu is also possible using the "arrow
up" and "arrow down" cursor keys as soon as the list has the focus.
If the user executes the "Stop communication" control unit diagnostic function, the connection to this
control unit is terminated regardless of its lock status.
Selecting vehicle services
The "Vehicle services" heading in the function menu lists those services that may apply to more than
one control unit:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Flashing
Fault memory for overall system
Installation state
Coding / adaption
Transport mode
Stop communication
If the user executes the "Stop communication" vehicle diagnostic function, all connections are closed,
regardless of their lock status, as described below.
The corresponding entries are described for each vehicle service in the corresponding chapters.
Macros and scripts
The menu items in this category can be used to execute GFF scripts and macros.

6 Identification
If you select a control unit from the control unit list and activate the "Identification" diagnostic function in the function menu, a result view opens with the identification data that has just been read. This
view's tab has a caption consisting of the control unit address and the suffix ID, for Identification.
The identification information is displayed in two tables. The system ID, part number, hardware version and software version are displayed in the table on the top. The master control unit addressed is
displayed in the very top row of the table. Further slave control units that can be accessed via the master control unit are displayed in the following lines – if available.
To display additional identification characteristics, select the respective entry in the table at the top.
For the information displayed in the table at the bottom, the user can switch between the standard
identification characteristics and the extended identification characteristics of the system selected
above. The "Show standard identification" and "Show extended identification" buttons are used for
this purpose. After selecting an entry from the upper table, the standard identification is automatically
displayed first. For control units with KWP2000 light plus and 0x22 service, the service life data can
be deleted in the control unit. A "Delete service life data" button is displayed for this purpose. It is
only visible and active if the extended identification is displayed.
The workshop code in the table at the bottom can be displayed in two ways: If it is an ODIS workshop
code, the code converted by the ECF is displayed and the HEX value is added in brackets. In the case
of a VAS workshop code, only the converted code is displayed.
7 Fault memory
On selecting the "Fault memory" item in the function menu of the control units view, a view appears
for displaying the fault memory contents of the control unit selected. This view has the "<control unit
control address>-DTC" tab. The contents of the fault memory are displayed in two tables arranged on
top of each other. The table at the top lists all events read out of the selected control unit. The event
code, event location and the description of the fault memory entry are displayed there.
Click on the event line to display the ambient conditions in the table at the bottom. They represent
additional information on the selected event, such as mileage, date or fault status. The amount and
type of this information may deviate in parts from one control unit to another. The left-hand column of
the table contains the type of information and the column on the right the read-out value. "+" may
precede the designators. That means that they represent a group of individual pieces of information
that can be opened by clicking on "+".
With UDS control units, in addition to the ambient conditions to the right of the table, another table is
displayed with information on the event status. In the "Refresh" area, you can click on the "now" button to trigger re-reading of the fault memory. Selecting the "in cycles" checkbox initiates reading of
the fault memory in cycles with the cycle time that can be configured in the "Administration" area
under the "Function configuration" tab. In the "Sort" area, you can enter a criterion here by which the
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 20 von 64
fault memory entries are sorted in the table at the top. Clicking on the column headings of the table at
the top reverses the sort order (ascending/descending). The default sort order is descending by priority
and the time of occurrence of the events displayed.
To delete the contents of the fault memory in the selected control unit, click on the "Erase fault memory" button. This button is only active if physical deletion is possible. For UDS control units, the special data groups (SDG) can be used to access further information on an event, depending on ODX data
input. If a certain event is selected in the upper table of the view, a button entitled "DTC Information"
can be used to open a dialogue, in which the additional information is displayed in a table. The lefthand column of the two-column table contains the name of the information and the column on the
right its value.
The user can use a drop-down list for UDS control units to choose between the functions "Read fault
memory" (entry: fault memory), "List of all unchecked error paths" (unchecked error paths) and "List
of all active errors" (active error). In addition, the drop-down list has three entries that address dialogues that can be configured by the user. They are set in the Administration area (function configuration).
Displaying the diagnostic status of all error paths (KWP)
The "Diagnostic status of all error paths" function is displayed in all views for KWP control units. The
topmost element of the fault memory functions in the tree view of the selection of functions is called
"fault memory" and results in the fault memory being read on being actuated. The "All error paths"
functions are below the "fault memory" element (for the "diagnostic status of all error paths"). Doubleclick with the left mouse button or press the Return key after selecting the respective element in the
tree view to execute the function. The tree view for selecting functions is closed by default. The "Read
fault memory" and "Diagnostic status of all error paths" functions can be selected in the function navigation of the result view using a combobox with the contents "Fault memory" and "All error paths".
This combobox represents the selection of functions from the control unit list on opening the "Fault
memory" result view. The event table is updated automatically after selecting the corresponding function.
8 Measured values
After selecting the "Measured values" function in the function menu of the control unit list, a new
result view is created. Its tabs are given the designation "MW<1...9>", since up to nine measured value
views can be created this way. The Measured values tab has two views: one for configuring the measured values to be recorded and one for displaying the test results. Measured values of several control
units can be displayed together in a measured value view.
8.1 Measured value selection
There is a drop-down list at the top left of this view, which can be used to select the control unit from
which you want to add measured values for selection. The configuration of the measured values to be
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 21 von 64
displayed deviates, depending on whether the measured values were read by control units with KWP
protocol or by control units with UDS protocol. Depending on what type of control unit was selected
from the drop-down list, the configuration view is adapted accordingly.
Control units with KWP protocol
For control units with KWP protocol, measured value blocks are read out with up to four measured
values. The measured value block numbers (1 to 255 for KWP 1281 or 1 to 254 for KWP 2000) and, if
necessary, the measured value position within the corresponding measured value block are entered in
the "Block.Position" text field, separated by a dot. The input screen for the measured value block also
provides the option of selecting several measured value blocks and complete measured value block
ranges with a single entry. Measured value block ranges are entered in the format "<measured value
block start>-<measured value block end>". It is not possible to enter individual measured values. Several individual measured values, measured value blocks and measured value block ranges can be entered in the text field for measured value blocks, separated by commas. Space characters are ignored.
Example:
3 ,4, 5.1,7-10
Measured values entered several times (e.g. due to overlapping areas) are only transferred once to the
selection of measured values. Invalid entries (e.g. start block < end block, position > 4 or measured
value block > 255) are ignored. If the user has also entered a measured value designator, the application applies the designator to all measured value blocks entered and adds the measured value number
to it.
The "Apply" button is enabled once you have made a correct entry. Click on "Apply" to transfer the
entry to the right-hand table with the selected measured values. If only the block number is entered,
when you click on "Apply" all measured values of this block are displayed.
Clicking on the required measured value block in the left-hand table enables the buttons for moving. If
individual blocks are not to be displayed, you can click on "<" to move them into the left-hand table.
All measured value blocks there are not displayed. The button is enabled if at least one measured value
block has been selected in the right-hand table. It is also possible to click on > to move measured value
blocks from the left-hand table into the right-hand table. The button is enabled if at least one measured
value block has been selected in the left-hand table. If all measured value blocks are to be moved in
one go, this is possible using the ">>" or "<<" buttons. The "▲" or "▼" buttons can be used to move
measured value blocks in the right-hand table up or down.
These buttons can be used in the same way for UDS control units after selecting the measured value
designators, as described above.
Control units with UDS protocol
Control units with UDS protocol do not use any measured value blocks. Instead, the measured values
available for the selected control unit are read out of the internal database of Offboard Diagnostic Information System Engineering and their designators are displayed in the table on the left. The designators displayed in the left-hand table may therefore also represent a group of measured values that can
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 22 von 64
be selected or deselected together via the group. Clicking on the required measured value designator in
the left-hand table enables the buttons for moving. As already described above for KWP control units,
the buttons for moving are used to add measured value designators to the right-hand table or remove
them again.
Clicking on the "Display measured values" button displays the measured values for the measured
value blocks in the right-hand table in the result view.
8.2 Measured value display
After switching to the "Display measured values" view, the current measured values are read out and
displayed in a table. The left-hand column of this table contains the control address of the corresponding control unit, the measured values are listed in the middle column and the value and unit of the
measured value are displayed in the right-hand column.
Updates to measured values can be controlled using the control elements in the "Refresh" area. In the
standard case, the measured values are updated in cycles as soon as possible. You can set the update
interval in seconds in the Administration area (Function configuration, Cycle times). Update in cycles
can be deactivated by deselecting the "in cycles" checkbox. If this option is deselected, you can update
the measured values specifically using the "now" button. Press the "●" button in the "Record" area to
record the measured values in a file.
The directory for saving the result files can be set in the Administration area (Storage locations). The
file name is determined by the application according to the date and time. The "▐▐" button interrupts
the recording of the measured values. It can be resumed with "●". The measured values are then attached to the previously used file. Click on " ■" to stop the recording and close the result file. Reactivating the recording with "●" starts a recording in a newly created file. Exiting the result view (switching back to the configuration of measured values or closing the tab) stops the recording and closes the
result file. Switching to another tab interrupts the recording. If you switch back to the measured values
view, recording is continued.
Measured values may be combined to groups by UDS control units in the measured values view. In
this case, there is a "+" in front of the group designator and the column on the right does not have any
values. Click on "+" to open the group and display its measured values. Click on "-" in front of the
group designator to close the group again.
You can use the "Select measured values" button to return to the initial view and then change the selection of the measured values to be displayed. If you want to subsequently reuse a measured value
selection made, you can save it in a preset.

9 Coding
If you select the Coding function in the Control unit list view, a result view appears with a tab caption
consisting of the control unit address (e.g. 01) and the suffix "COD" for Coding. If a Coding tab is
already open for a control unit and the function is selected again, the existing tab is displayed. Depending on whether coding is to be performed on KWP or UDS control units, configuration and operation will deviate. In both cases, whether the control unit for which coding is to be performed has subsystems, i.e. control units subordinate to this control unit, is checked first. If that is the case, all systems of the sub-bus are provided in a drop-down list for selection. Then, the drop-down list contains
the system names of all systems at this sub-bus. The master control unit is initially selected. A different sub-bus system can be selected from the drop-down list at any time, for which the corresponding
protocol-specific code value is then displayed. A label with the identification data of the master control unit is displayed above the drop-down list. The code value of the master control unit is read and
displayed immediately when the view is opened. The other display and input options differ for different diagnostic protocols and types of code.
9.1 Control units with KWP protocol
The coding function for KWP control units is explained below. There are two possible code types for
these control units, the short code and the long code. The type of code depends on the control unit and
cannot be changed by the user.
Short code (KWP 1281, KWP 2000)
When you have opened the view or selected the required sub-bus system, the code is read and displayed in a text box. A new code can be entered in an edit field. Press the "Apply" button to write the
code value to the vehicle system. A confirmation prompt is displayed first in a modal dialogue box.
The written value is then written back and displayed in the display field for the old code value, followed by the original value in brackets:
2815 (2842)
Edit and write operations can be repeated any number of times. The "Restore" button displays the
value prior to the last write operation in the text field. It can be reset using "Apply".
Long code (KWP 2000)
The long code is a bit field consisting of up to 32 bytes. It can be displayed bit-by-bit or in the form of
bytes. It is displayed in the same way as for the binary code for UDS.
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 24 von 64
9.2 Control units with UDS protocol
With UDS control units, there is a binary code and a plain text code. These are different representations of the same type of code. If supported by data input, after calling the Code function and possibly
selecting the subsystem, the plain text code is displayed by default. Otherwise, the binary code is displayed.
UDS binary code and KWP long code
The representation of the binary code for UDS control units and of the long code for KWP control
units is identical. The following description applies to the binary code, but also applies to the long
code in the same way.
In the binary view, the code string is displayed with one byte per line in a table that cannot be sorted.
The table columns contain the byte number, the value in hexadecimal representation and the value in
binary representation. For every type of representation, the table has one column each for the current
value and the entry. To enter values in binary code, after pressing the "F2" key or double-clicking with
the left mouse button, a dialogue appears with two input fields for hex or binary input. If you switch
between the two input fields, the value last entered is transferred to the other input field. Pressing OK
transfers the values to the table's input columns. After selecting another (sub) system via the combobox with the "System ID" caption, the input focus switches to the first line of the code table. If the
view is used for the long code of a KWP2000 control unit, the user can select the blank line after the
last code line with data and add a new code byte there. This procedure may be repeated any number of
times. The columns for the current value are filled with 0 by the application in the code lines added.
You can also use the "Remove byte" button to remove the selected code line. After doing this, the
remaining lines are re-numbered by the application in the "Byte no." column. In the Checksum input
field, the user must enter a number sequence corresponding to the code string if required. If there is no
checksum, a special warning appears when the data is saved:
"Could not check the code string for errors. Do you still want to save it?"
The check by means of the checksum can be disabled by modifying a setting in the administration
system. The default setting is: the check is active. If the check is disabled in the administration, the
input field for the checksum is displayed in disabled form. In this case, no message is displayed stating
that the checksum was not used for the check. In the event of changes to the plain text view, a checksum is not required, since only valid values can be entered here. In both views, a code value is selected
by clicking on the corresponding table line. The "Restore" button is used to enter the status before the
last write operation in the input column again. “Apply" saves the code string after a confirmation
prompt is displayed.
Plain text code
In the plain text code view, a table in the left part of the view is filled with the available code strings.
If one of these code strings is selected, it is read, decoded and displayed in a table with the names and
values of the individual parameters that it consists of. The cells in the input column are created in the
form of drop-down lists in the case of enumerated parameters. By selecting a value from the list, the
user can make changes. For other data types, the value in the "Input" column can be edited. The user
can use the "Binary code" button to switch to this view. If plain text coding is not supported, the biODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32

nary view is automatically selected. If coding is to be performed, a checkbox with the caption "Reset
control units" is displayed in the confirmation dialogue. In the event of plain text coding, the checkbox
is enabled and selected by default (a control unit reset is performed) if ODX data input supports the
ECU reset service. Otherwise the checkbox is disabled and not selected. In this view, the general filter
function for filtering table contents is implemented for selecting the coding property. A filter value
entered is deleted automatically by loading a preset. If codes are displayed again by changing the filter, any previously entered input values are displayed again. The functions of the "Apply" and "Restore" buttons only have an effect on the visible codes. In the case of all values that are not visible, the
previously read value is entered in the control unit.
If the setting "Only display coding texts relevant to customer service" is selected under "Coding" in
the
"Function
configuration"
tab,
the
values
equipped
with
the
semantic
"NOT_VISIBLE_IN_SERVICE" will not be displayed in the plain text code.
9.3 Saving codes as a preset
The "Preset..." function is available in all views for KWP and UDS coding. This function can be used
to save the current code. In this case, the plain text code and the binary code are both saved. If you
select a stored code using "Preset..." or using the "Restore code" button, their contents are entered in
the "Input" columns or in the input field for the short code and are only written if you press the "Apply" button. A plausibility check is then performed for the loaded preset to check whether the data
included contains the currently available code type. If the plausibility check fails, the user is informed
in a dialogue that the preset data does not correspond to the current control unit.
9.4 "Special code" for KWP gateways
The "Special code" function is provided for gateway control units only, depending on the type of representation of the supported functions selected in the administration. The special code currently contained in the control unit is determined when the installation list (Chapter 23, Coding the gateway installation list) is read, and is displayed in an additional row at the end of the installation list.
10 Adaption
To execute the Adaption function for the control unit activated in the control unit list, the "Adaption"
item needs to be selected first from the function menu of the "Control unit list" view. It is displayed in
a new result view, the tab of which has the control unit address (e.g. 01) plus the suffix "KAL" as its
caption. Configuration and operation can differ, depending on whether the adaption is to be performed
on KWP or UDS control units.

10.1 Control units with KWP protocol
With KWP control units, after switching to the Adaption view all adaption channels of the selected
control unit are displayed in a list The channels are numbered and sorted in ascending order.
A maximum of 99 channels can be used per control unit. All channels are always displayed, regardless
of whether they are actually being used by the current control unit. To change the adaption value of a
channel, select it and then click the "Select channel" button. Alternatively, a channel can also be selected by double-clicking on it. Then, the current channel value is displayed on the right-hand side of
the view.
New adaption values can be entered on the table on the right side of the view. It has four columns: the
first column ("Old value/default value") displays the adaption value read out of the control unit, the
second column ("Test value") displays the current test value, the third column ("Input") displays the
value entered by the user and the fourth column ("Unit") remains empty for KWP. The adaption value
can be changed in the "Input" column. Initially, it is identical to the value in the "Test value" column.
If the user changes the value and confirms this change using the "Enter <-┘" key, the value is sent to
the control unit as a new value and used by it temporarily. This procedure may be repeated any number of times.
As long as the modified value has not yet been saved to the control unit, the user can reset the test
value to the initial value by clicking on the "Reset" button (i.e. to the value in the "Old value/default
value" column). The test value is also reset if a new channel is selected or on changing or closing the
result view. If the correct test value was determined, click on the "Apply" button to save it to the control unit. Only then is the value in the "Old value/default value" column also set to the new value. After saving the value, the "Reset" button is disabled. Both values are also disabled if the value in the
"Input" field and the value in the "Old value/default value" field are identical. The values of all channels can be reset to the control unit's factory settings using the "Reset all" button.
10.2 Control units with UDS protocol
Unlike KWP control units, UDS control units cannot identify any numbered adaptation channels, but
adaptations with a name.
On switching to the "Adaption" view, all available adaptions of the selected control unit are listed in a
table. Each of these adaptions has parameters. By default, they are displayed in closed form and they
can be displayed by double-clicking in the row or by clicking on "+" in front of the function's name.
Another double click or a click on "-" closes the parameter list again. To open the parameters of all
adaptions in one go, click on the "+" button on the right below the table. In the same way, clicking on
"-" closes all open parameter lists again. When you close one or more parameter lists, all values that
have not yet been saved are lost. Pressing the "Apply" button transfers the entered values to the control
unit. Before saving the values, the system verifies whether the parameters entered are valid. If this
check is not successful, the values are not entered in the control unit and an error message informs the
user of the cause. If the new values were saved successfully, they are then displayed in the "Current
value" column. To restore the values last saved, press the "Restore" button. The values last used are
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32

displayed in the "Input" column. To enter the restored values in the control unit, click on the "Apply"
button again.
11 Default setting
The Default setting function opens a view with a tab, the name of which consists of the control unit
address (e.g. 01) and the suffix "GES". The configuration of the default setting and of the measured
values to be displayed deviates, depending on whether the function is executed on control units with
KWP protocol or with UDS protocol.
11.1 Control units with KWP protocol
The steps for executing the default setting function on a KWP control unit are explained below.
Preset functionality
There is a preset function, which only has one channel number. When a preset is loaded, this channel
number is selected and reading the "not in default setting" measured values is started. When a preset is
loaded, the loaded channel number is displayed in the Edit field, next to the "Select channel" button.
Channel selection
Decimal values in the following range are valid values for the channel numbers:


KWP1281: 0..255
KWP2000: 1..254
The button for selecting the channel remains disabled until the user enters a valid channel number. As
long as the user as not entered a valid channel number the background of the channel edit field is red,
indicating that parametrisation is required. If a channel is changed, the default channel of the previous
channel is exited before changing over to the newly specified channel.
Status indication
The current status of the default setting is displayed in bold in the "Selection and feedback" area in
two lines: the currently selected channel and the default setting status. As long as no channel has been
selected, "-" is displayed as the current channel. As long as no channel has been selected, "-" is displayed as the current status. There are two separate tables in the "Selection and feedback" area, called
"Measured values not in default setting" and "Measured values in default setting". Depending on the
status of the default setting provided by the control unit, the measured values obtained are entered in
the corresponding table. Entering new values after a change of status retains previously determined
values in the corresponding other table in unchanged form. That means that values may be displayed
in both tables simultaneously.
Controlling a selected default setting
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 28 von 64
There are two "Activation" buttons in the function navigation area that correspond to the two tables
visually. If one channel is selected, the two buttons are only enabled alternately. If no channel is selected (on switching to the result view), both buttons are disabled.
Default setting for KWP1281
After selecting a channel, the "Activate" button is enabled for the "Measured values in default setting"
table. On clicking on one of the two "Activate" buttons, the activation of both buttons alternates. If
you click on the "Activate" button, the measured values are determined and displayed in cycles.
"Status not available" is displayed as the default setting.
KWP2000 default setting
If a channel is selected, the measured values are determined and displayed in cycles. Both "Activate"
buttons have the same function, they activate the default setting. The status information of the default
setting is displayed. Only one button is enabled at any time, depending on the status information:
i.e. for status information from the control unit:
- 07, 10: the button is disabled for the "in default setting" table.
- 04, 06: the button is disabled for the "not in default setting" table. The default setting is only stopped
on exiting the tab and on changing the channel.
11.2 Control units with UDS protocol
For UDS control units, after selecting the default settings, parameters can be additionally set and
measured values selected. The steps required here are described in the following.
Selecting the default settings
The required default settings need to be selected from the initial view of the function. The available
settings are displayed in the list arranged on the left. The list on the right contains the selected settings
and is empty to start with. Clicking on the ">" button moves the selected default settings from the lefthand list into the right-hand list To add all default settings to this list, use the ">>" button. Individual
default settings can be removed again from the right-hand list by clicking on "<". The "<<" button is
used to remove all default settings from the list. Then, these default settings are displayed again in the
left-hand list. The list of selected default settings can be sorted. To do this, select exactly one default
setting. Every click on the "▲" button moves it up one position and "▼" moves it down one position
in the same manner. Once you have made the required settings, click on the "➨" button to switch to
the next view, Parametrisation.
Parametrisation
The left-hand list contains the default settings selected in the previous view. The first default setting is
selected by default. As soon as a default setting is selected, the right-hand table displays the corresponding parameters. Depending on the type of parameter, its value in the right-hand column may be
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 29 von 64
selected from a pop-up menu or entered manually. If you enter the value manually, the system will
check whether it is valid. If problems are detected or if a value is missing, the respective parameter is
marked in red and the corresponding default setting is displayed in bold red characters. To set all parameters to their corresponding default values, click on the "Default parameters" button. Once again,
the system checks whether values are missing or invalid and marks the relevant parameters and default
settings accordingly. As long as problems still exist during parametrisation, i.e. at least one parameter
is marked in red, clicking on the "➨" button will cause an error message to be displayed. If the validity check for all parameters was successful, however, the next view is displayed, the "Measured value
selection". Clicking on "◄━" switches back to the previous view. Even if default settings are added
or removed there, all settings made are retained for the remaining default settings.
Measured value selection
This view can be used to select measured values for every default setting displayed during the process.
In addition, global measured values can also be selected, i.e. measured values that apply to all default
settings. The pop-up menu at the top lists all previously selected default settings. The first entry is
always "overall". The measured values are assigned to this entry that do not apply to a specific default
setting but to the entire control unit. The available measured values are displayed for the default setting selected or for the "overall" entry on the left-hand side. Like for the selection of default settings,
the measured values to be displayed can be selected here. The right-hand list contains the selected
measured values and it is empty to start with. Clicking on the ">" button moves the selected measured
values into the right-hand list To add all measured values to this list, use the ">>" button. Individual
measured values can be removed again from the right-hand list by clicking on "<". The "<<" button is
used to remove all measured values from the list. Then, these measured values are displayed again in
the left-hand list. The list of selected measured values can be sorted. To do this, select exactly one
measured value. Every click on the "▲" button moves it up one position and "▼" moves it down one
position in the same manner. Once you have selected the measured values you require, click on the ">" button to switch to the implementation of the default settings. Clicking on "<-" switches back to the
previous view. Even if parameters are modified or default settings added or removed there, the selection of measured values for the remaining default settings is retained.
Implementation of the default settings
The actual default settings for the control unit are implemented in this view. A list at the top displays
the default settings and – closed by default to start with – the corresponding measured values. Clicking on "+" displays these measured values. The list at the bottom displays all global measured values
and groups of measured values. Measured values may be combined into groups. In this case, there is a
"+" in front of the group designator and the column on the right does not have any values. Click on "+"
to open the group and display its measured values. Click on - in front of the group designator to close
the group again. The overall status of all default settings is displayed above the two tree structures in
the "UDS default settings - Status" field. Some possible status indications may be e.g.: active, not active, ended. To start with, the default settings to be configured need to be selected first. For this, you
can select one or more default settings by clicking on them. Clicking on "►" starts the implementation
and "■" stops it. The "STOP" button stops all active default settings. The same applies if the tab is
closed or exited or if you switch back to the selection of measured values using the "<-" button. If the
user then returns to the "Implement default setting" view, it is not automatically continued but needs to
be re-started manually. The "▐►" button can be used to switch to the next default setting. Clicking on
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 30 von 64
"►" starts the implementation of the currently selected default setting. When it is finished, the process
is continued with the next default setting in the list. Once the end of the list has been reached, the first
list entry follows. The measured values of the currently configured default setting are open by default,
and all other measured values are closed. The "►" button is disabled during implementation. Click on
"■" to stop the currently implemented default setting. It can be continued with "▐►". For this, the
currently selected default setting is used to start, regardless of at which point the process was interrupted. Some default setting operations require the user's action. If that is the case, the required action
is displayed in the table of measured values for the currently active measured value. Once the action
has been performed, the process of defining settings is automatically continued. After completing the
default setting, the measured values are still displayed. If the default setting was not successful, a dialogue appears with an error message that needs to be confirmed by the user.
12 Actuator diagnosis
The actuator diagnosis function is accessed via the function menu in the "Control unit list" view under
the "Actuator diagnosis" item. It is controlled in a result view with a tab, the name of which consists of
the control unit address and the suffix "SGD" (e.g. "01 – SGD"). Configuration of the actuator diagnosis and of the measured values to be displayed deviates, depending on whether the function is executed
on control units with KWP protocol or with UDS protocol.
12.1 Control units with KWP protocol
Configuration of the actuator diagnosis (KWP)
The user can use the "sequential" and "selective" radio buttons in the "Actuator diagnosis" group to
select either sequential or selective actuator diagnosis. The first time the function is started for a control unit, the "sequential" option is pre-selected. If sequential actuator diagnosis based on the supported functions reported is not available, the "selective" option is pre-selected. In the case of the selective actuator test, the user can enter the required actuator code in a second group. Two radio buttons, "dec" and "hex", are available for selecting either decimal or hexadecimal input. The group / the
input elements included are deactivated when sequential actuator diagnosis is selected.
Operating the actuator diagnosis (KWP)
The "" is enabled as soon as sequential actuator diagnosis or a specific actuator is selected by the user
or automatically pre-selected. That starts the actuator diagnosis. The ">▌" button can be used to
switch to the next actuator, if the user has started sequential actuator diagnosis and the control unit
reports that continuing to switch is currently not permitted (i.e. the status
CU_RUNNING_CANNOT_BE_INTERRUPTED is active). The "H" button can be used by the user
to exit actuator diagnosis.
Displaying the results of the actuator test (KWP)
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 31 von 64
During actuator diagnosis, the returned status is displayed in the status line. The actuator code returned
by the control unit and the corresponding name follow in brackets. The returned measured values are
displayed in the "Measured values" table.
Preset function
The user can use the preset function during the selective actuator test to save the selected actuator code
under a preset name, after entering and confirming the actuator code. When a preset is loaded, the
application automatically switches to selective actuator diagnosis.
12.2 Control units with UDS protocol
For control units with UDS protocol, actuator diagnosis can be configured more extensively. After
selecting the actuator diagnosis function for a UDS control unit, the user is first taken to the actuator
selection view. A list of the available actuators of the control unit appears, which that can be parametrised individually. The actuator tests selected and configured this way can then be performed in succession or simultaneously. The function can be exited in all states by closing the tab. If the tab is
closed (e.g. by selecting a different tab) or if the view is changed, the status of the function is retained
in terms of parametrisation. However, all currently active actuator tests are stopped. That also applies
if you switch from the conduction of actuator diagnosis back to the parametrisation. It is therefore not
possible to add or parametrise individual actuators during an active actuator diagnosis. The four
phases of actuator diagnosis for UDS control units are described in the following in detail.
Actuator selection
The left-hand list in this view contains all actuators available for the selected control unit. This list can
be sorted alphabetically by clicking on the column heading. The right-hand list contains the actuators
to be tested. It is empty to start with. You can select one or more actuators either by clicking on them
or using the arrow keys on the keyboard. The first actuator is selected that starts with the letter entered.
If the same letter is entered again, the next element with this initial letter is selected. Clicking on the
">" button moves the selected actuators into the right-hand list To select all actuators and add them to
this list, use the ">>" button. Individual actuators can be removed again from the right-hand list by
clicking on "<". The "<<" button is used to remove all actuators from the list. Then, the removed actuators are displayed again in the left-hand list. The list of selected actuators can be sorted. To do this,
select exactly one actuator. Every click on the "▲" button moves it up one position and "▼" moves it
down one position in the same manner. Once you have selected all required actuators, click on the
button to switch to the next view, Parametrisation.
Parametrisation
The left-hand list contains the actuators selected in the previous view. The first actuator is selected by
default. The available parameters are displayed for each actuator selected in the right-hand table. Depending on the type of parameter, its value in the right-hand column may be selected from a pop-up
menu or entered manually. If you enter the value manually, the system will check whether it is valid.
If problems are detected or if a value is missing, the respective parameter is marked in red and the
corresponding actuator is displayed in bold red characters. To set all parameters to their corresponding
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 32 von 64
default values, click on the "Default parameters" button. Once again, the system checks whether values are missing or invalid and marks the relevant parameters and actuators accordingly.
As long as problems still exist during parametrisation, i.e. at least one parameter is marked in red,
clicking on the "->" button will cause an error message to be displayed informing the user that there is
still a data problem. If the validity check for all parameters was successful, however, the next view is
displayed, the "Measured value selection". Clicking on "<-" switches back to the previous view. Even
when actuators are added or removed there, all settings made are retained for the remaining actuators.
Measured value selection
This view can be used to select measured values for every actuator displayed during the conduction of
the actuator tests. In addition, global measured values can be selected for actuators. The left-hand list
displays the measured values available for the selected actuator or for the "overall" entry. Like for the
selection of actuators, the measured values to be displayed can be selected here. The right-hand list
contains the selected measured values. It is empty to start with. Clicking on the ">" button moves the
selected measured values into the right-hand list To add all measured values to this list, use the ">>"
button. Individual measured values can be removed again from the right-hand list by clicking on "<".
The "<<" button is used to remove all measured values from the list. These measured values are then
displayed again in the left-hand list. The list of selected measured values can be sorted. To do so, select exactly one measured value. Every click on the "▲" button moves it up one position and "▼"
moves it down one position in the same manner. Once you have selected the required measured values, click on the "➨" button to switch to the execution of actuator diagnosis. Clicking on "<-"
switches back to the previous view. Even if parameters are modified or actuators added or removed
there, the selection of measured values for the remaining actuators is retained.
Conduction of actuator diagnosis
The actual actuator diagnosis is performed in this view. The selected actuators and – initially closed by
default – the corresponding measured values are displayed in a tree structure at the top. Clicking on
"+" displays these measured values. The actuator parameters and their values are displayed if you
move the mouse pointer over an actuator. All global measured values for actuators are displayed in the
tree structure at the bottom. Measured values may be combined into groups. In this case, there is a "+"
in front of the group designator and the column on the right does not have any values. Click on "+" to
open the group and display its measured values. Click on "-" in front of the group designator to close
the group again. The collective status of all selected actuator tests is displayed above the two tree
structures in the "Actuator diagnosis - Status" field. Some possible status messages may be: active, not
active, ended. To start actuator diagnosis, the actuators to be checked need to be selected first. You can
select one or more actuators by clicking on them. Clicking on "►" starts the actuator test and "■"
stops it. The buttons always only apply to the currently selected actuator test. For example, if you select actuators 1 to 3 before starting, these tests are started by clicking on "►". If you reduce the selection to actuators 2 and 3 and press "■", only actuators 2 and 3 are stopped, while actuator 1 continues
to run. Mutually independent actuators may be started and stopped at all times. The "STOP" button
stops all active actuators. The same applies if the tab is closed or exited or if you switch back to the
previous view using the "<-" button. If the user then returns to the "Perform actuator diagnosis" view,
the actuator tests are not automatically continued but need to be re-started manually. The "▐►" button
can be used to also perform a sequential actuator test for a UDS control unit. For this, no other actua-

tor test may be active. In addition, exactly one actuator must be selected in the list on the left. If both
conditions are fulfilled, the "▐►" button is enabled. Click on "▐►" to switch to the next actuator and
click on "►" to start the test for this actuator. If the end of the list has been reached, clicking on "▐►"
takes you to the first list item. The measured values of the currently performed actuator test are
opened. Click on "■" to stop the currently active actuator test. The sequential actuator test can be continued with "▐►" and "►". The test is started with the currently selected actuator, regardless of at
which point the test was interrupted.
12.3 Special features when using the keyboard
Some settings can also be made using shortcuts with the keyboard. The following shortcuts are available in addition to the generally applicable short cuts:
Shortcut Function
CTRL + P Start the actuator test (Play ►)
CTRL + S Stop the actuator test (Stop ■)
CTRL + N While an actuator test is in progress:

13 Hex services
Hex services ("HEX" tab suffix) are a function for the direct transmission of diagnostic PDUs (Protocol Data Unit) on the vehicle bus without using the corresponding ODX data input for the control unit.
The "Hex service" view is selected in the same way as the other views from the function selection list
of the "Control unit list" view. The left-hand section of the view is split up into four sub-sections arranged on top of each other:
1.
2.
3.
4.
A table for selecting predefined query PDUs
A text field for query PDUs
A trace display for displaying diagnostic communication
A display table for the response PDU last received
The size of sections 1, 3 and 4 can be changed by pulling the "sash" lines using the mouse.
The selection table combines two options for using predefined query PDUs. The first option uses presets and the second option uses an ODX browser that can be used to create the PDUs from ODX data
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 34 von 64
input. Only the "Presets" option is available for KWP control units. The "Preset" and "ODX data input" tabs arranged above the table can be used to switch between the two alternatives. A query PDU
selected in this table via double click is copied into the text field. It can be edited there as required. A
query PDU can also be entered here in complete form manually. The "Send" button to the right of the
text field is used to send the query PDU to the control unit. The control unit's response is displayed in
the two sections "Trace display" and "Display table" underneath. All queries sent and responses received are listed in chronological form in the trace display. The "Delete trace" button can be used to
delete the display. The user can use "Copy trace" to copy the contents of the trace display to the clipboard and reuse them in another application. The display table arranged at the very bottom shows the
control unit response last received. The control unit response can be transferred to the clipboard using
the "Copy response" button.
Using the selection table
"Preset" tab
With this variant, frequently used query PDUs are provided for selection in a table that can be sorted
by the "Hex service" and "Service name" columns. The selection is not only restricted to a standard
table. The user can change and/or supplement an existing table and save it as a new table under a different name. The drop-down field of the selection of presets has an entry entitled "Empty" that can be
used by the user to create a preset table without diagnostic PDUs entered. Then, the active preset designator (in the combobox) is deleted. The standard preset always exists and cannot be overwritten. A
preset (exception: standard preset) can be edited row-by-row by pressing the "EDIT" button in the last
column of the table row. Pressing this button opens an Edit dialogue. The edit mode of a selected row
is also activated by pressing the "F2" key. That opens a dialogue for entering the PDU and the service
name. Pressing the "Del" (Delete) key deletes the selected row from from the table.
ODX browser tab
The ODX browser allows suitable query PDUs to be created from the ODX data input elements. A list
of the services available for the selected control unit is available on the left side. Selecting a service
results in the list of parameters being displayed for this service on the right. Its values are initially
filled with the default data from data input, which can, however, be changed by the user. Double-click
on the desired service or press "Return <┘" to transfer the compiled query PDU into the input line.
14 Access authorisation and changing sessions
Common functions
The "Access authorisation" and "Session change" functions are listed in the selection of diagnostic
functions of the control unit list in two separate items in the "Diagnostic functions" area. "Diagnostic
session" is used as the name of the "session change" function. Both functions can also be accessed via
the expand bar. Both functions are each executed via a modal dialogue entitled "Access authorisation"
or "Session selection". The NRC sent by the control unit that selected the dialogue is displayed in a
text box at the top of the dialogue, incl. service ID and NRC in hexadecimal representation. FurtherODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32

more, the relevant control unit is displayed in the format "<control address> - <control unit name>",
and the relevant diagnostic function and any parameters concerned are displayed in the information
area of the corresponding dialogue for changing the session or for access authorisation, in order that
the user can decide which login code or diagnostic session is required.
There is an "Execute" button for both functions, for executing the corresponding function, i.e. access
authorisation or change of session. The user can use an additional "Cancel" button to close the dialogue without taking any action. After starting the "Access authorisation" and/or "Session change"
function, the execution dialogue appears that is hidden automatically after at least 1 second after the
successful execution. If access authorisation or session change is not performed successfully, this is
displayed in a result dialogue.
Access authorisation dialogue
For parametrising access authorisation, the dialogue displays a list box with the "Login method" caption for selecting the type of access authorisation and a text field with the "Login code" caption for the
login code. A checkbox with the caption "Display login code" is also displayed. It is not selected by
default. In this case, only asterisks ("*") are displayed in the "Login code" text field instead of the
characters actually entered. If it is selected, the login code is displayed in plain text. The available
login methods for KWP are to be designated and sorted as follows:
KWP2000:
Automatic access authorisation (default, pre-selected)
Access authorisation level 3/4
Access authorisation level 5/6
KWP1281:
Automatic access authorisation
The available login methods for UDS control units are displayed and sorted according to the ODX
data input. Login methods are available for UDS control units, which are defined as input parameter
IPA_SecurMetho for SinglJob_SecurAcces.
Session change dialogue
The current diagnostic session of the control unit is displayed in an information area in the dialogue, at
the top.
The diagnostic session is only determined for UDS control units and service 22-KWP control units as
follows:
1. UDS: measured value with TI IDE00325 (long name: Active Diagnostic Session)
2. KWP service 22: record data identifier $F186
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 36 von 64
If the active diagnostic session cannot be determined, e.g. because the measured value does not have
any data input or because it is a KWP control unit that does not support service 22, the following is
displayed: "Diagnostic session cannot be determined". To select the diagnostic session, the dialogue
has a list box displaying all diagnostic sessions available for the control unit or diagnostic protocol.
The available diagnostic sessions for KWP control units are designated and sorted as follows:
KWP2000:




End of line at the Volkswagen Group
KWP1281:
The GUI area for changing the session is disabled here.
The available session change methods for UDS control units are displayed and sorted according to the
ODX data input.
15 Write data record
The "Write data record" function is selected in the function menu of the "Control unit list" view by
selecting "Data record". This function (the tab suffix is "DAT") can be used to enter a target data container (TDC) in the control unit. For this, the user can use the "Data record" text field and the
"Browse" button to select the file with the target data container and start data input using the "Write
data record" button. In addition, the user can open the TDC in an external editor using the "Start external editor" button. The desired editor can be selected in the Administration area under "Function configuration->Write data record". Once data input has been started, it cannot be cancelled any more.
After completion of the process, a status message is displayed to the user informing him whether the
operation was successful or not.
16 Reading and writing memory cells
The functions for reading and writing memory cells are provided in the control unit list in the "Diagnostic functions" section as "Memory cells" item. The following functions are provided as corresponding sub-functions in the case of a KWP1281 control unit:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Read RAM
Read ROM / EPROM
Read / write EEPROM
Read / write EEPROM (serial)
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 37 von 64
In the case of a KWP2000 control unit, the following detailed function is provided, if it is reported by
the corresponding control unit as being supported in the supporting "developer functions":
1. Read / write EEPROM
In the case of a UDS control unit, the following detailed function is provided if the DiagnServi_ReadMemorByAddreMCD20001 service is included in the data input.
1. Read / write EEPROM
The direct selection of the higher-order "Memory cells" item always leads to the detailed function
"Read / write EEPROM", regardless of the diagnostic protocol.
After selecting one of the detailed functions for reading or writing memory cells, a separate result view
is opened for this diagnostic function. Like for other individual control unit functions, the caption consists of the control address of the corresponding control unit and the new function code "SPZ" (example: 09 – SPZ). The result view consists, as is normally the case, of a function navigation area on the
right and the actual result view on the left.
16.1 Reading memory cells
The user can configure the start address of the memory cells to be read in the function navigation area.
For this, a "Start address" group has been created in the function navigation area. The user can select
the address protocol within this group using a combobox that offers the values "2 byte" and "3 byte".
The user can use two radio buttons to select either decimal or hexadecimal input of the start address.
When the result view is opened for the first time, the hexadecimal input of the start address is enabled
by default. The user can enter the start address of the address range to be read in a text field. The text
field for the start address is indicated by a red background colour until the user enters a valid start address in the range between 0x000000 and 0xFFFFFF. It has a decorator used to display the permitted
input values. The user can configure the number of memory cells to be read in the function navigation
area. For this, a "Number of memory cells" group has been created in the function navigation area.
The user can use two radio buttons within this group to select either decimal or hexadecimal input of
the number of memory cells to be read. When the result view is opened for the first time, decimal input of the number of memory cells to be read is enabled by default. The text field for the number of
memory cells to be read is indicated by a red background colour until the user enters a valid number in
the range between 0 and 1000 (dec). It has a decorator for displaying the permitted input values. The
user can use a "Read cells" button to start reading the memory cells. The button is only enabled if
there are valid entries for the start address and the number of memory cells to be read.
16.2 Displaying the read memory cells
The name of the detailed function selected is displayed in bold at the top left of the result view. Below
it is a table with the memory cells read or to be written. The values of the memory cells queried are
displayed in the "Hex service" function like the result view, grouped by 16 bytes in one row. The first
column contains the address of the memory contents displayed, starting with the start address with an
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 38 von 64
increment of 16 bytes. The table cannot be sorted. 16 columns are then displayed, the headings of
which contain the offset of the result byte to be displayed, from 0 to 15 or 00 to 0F, depending on the
type of address view. The column headers for hexadecimal representation are displayed as two digits
with a leading zero (e.g. "00"). An "Address indication" item has been created in the administration, in
the "Function configuration" area, in the "Memory cells" category, which can be used to switch the
address indication between decimal or hexadecimal. Both the entries in the "Address" column and the
headings of the sixteen offset columns are adapted to the type of display selected. The 16 bytes of a
row are displayed in the last column as ASCII string with the name "ASCII". If less than 16 bytes
were read on the every bottom row, only the bytes actually read are displayed as ASCII characters.
Characters not included in the character set or that cannot be displayed practically (e.g. line break) are
replaced with a dot, ".". The same disproportionate character set is used in the table as in the "Hex
services" function. The individual result bytes are displayed in decimal or hexadecimal representation,
depending on the result representation option set in the function navigation area. The column widths of
the table are selected in such a way that switching over from hexadecimal to decimal representation
does not change the column width (hexadecimal representation: two digits, decimal representation:
max. three digits). When the dialogue is opened for the first time, hexadecimal representation is active.
The memory contents in hexadecimal representation are displayed with two digits with a leading zero.
16.3 Manipulation of read memory cells
Within the result table, the user can select a complete row via mouse click or by navigation using the
arrow up and arrow down keys. The user can double-click on a row or press the "F2" key to activate
an edit dialogue for the selected row.
In the edit dialogue for changing the memory cells, the 16 bytes of the previously selected table row
are displayed in "tabular form" without using a real table element. The corresponding, absolute address of the memory area shown is displayed in the form of a text box in the first "column" with the
"Address" heading. The type of representation (decimal or hexadecimal) is applied from the result
view and displayed after the heading in brackets. The current value of the memory area is displayed in
a text field in the second "column" with the "Value" heading. The type of content representation
(decimal or hexadecimal) is applied from the result view and displayed after the heading in brackets.
The value of the memory area is displayed in ASCII representation in a text field in the third "column"
with the "Value (ASCII)" heading. Characters not included in the character set or that cannot be displayed practically (e.g. line break) are also replaced with a dot, "." in this dialogue. The user has the
option of editing the corresponding memory cell in the "Value (dec. or hex.)" column or in the "Value
(ASCII)" column. Any change is automatically applied to the other text field. Every memory cell
changed compared to the read data is identified by a decorator next to the two text fields. This decorator displays the read value or the read ASCII character in round brackets. If a change is undone (i.e.
the read value is re-entered), the decorator is hidden again. The specification of the tab sequence
within the dialogue ensures that a "tab" in the table view always places the focus on the same text field
(the same column) in the next row of the table. The arrow up / down arrow keys can be used for navigation between the rows of the same column. All text fields belonging to memory cells that were not
previously read are disabled. After confirming the changes using the "OK" button or the Enter key, the
changes are transferred to the result view. All memory cells changed compared to the read values are
highlighted both in numeric (dec. or hex.) and in ASCII representation by bold characters and a yellow
background colour in the cell. The user can press the "Cancel" button to discard the changes made and
the dialogue box is closed without applying any changed values.

16.4 Writing memory cells
The user can use a "Write cells" button to write in memory cells. The button is only enabled if one of
the detailed functions
2. Read / write EEPROM
3. Read / write EEPROM (serial)
was selected by the user.
For UDS, the write button is only enabled if the corresponding service has data input for the control
unit. The button is only enabled if memory cells have already been read. After pressing the "Write
cells" button a confirmation prompt appears, informing the user about the risks of writing in memory
cells directly.
Attention !!
Changing physical memory addresses directly may cause irreparable damage to a control unit!
Only write if you are absolutely certain.
16.5 Preset function
The user can use the preset function to save the values currently displayed in the view to a preset, regardless of whether they have already been written to the control unit. A preset is only provided for
selection if both the SW part number and the software version of the currently connected control unit
match the preset. When a preset is saved, a dialogue is displayed asking the user: "Do you want to also
save the contents of the memory area to the preset?". If the user selects "Yes", the currently displayed
values of the memory segment are also saved. The ASCII interpretation of the memory contents is not
saved to the preset. When a preset is loaded, the memory area saved here is read out of the control unit
again. Previous results are automatically discarded without any query. If contents of the memory area
are included in the preset, if they deviate from the read values they are displayed, highlighted in bold
and with a yellow background colour. After reading a preset, the values can be transferred to the control unit using the "Write cells" function.
17 Transport mode
To activate or deactivate transport mode for the complete vehicle, in the function menu of the "Control
unit list" view select
"Transport mode". To switch transport mode on or off, the corresponding list entry needs to be selected and confirmed and the action triggered by clicking on the corresponding sub-item. In the event
of an error, a message appears with detailed information on the error.

18 Stopping diagnostic communication
The "Control unit list" view has the "Stop communication" item below the diagnostic functions and
also below the vehicle services. The item below "Diagnostic functions" stops any communication with
the control unit selected in the control unit list. The item below "Vehicle services" closes all open connections. Note that calling these functions will switch the corresponding control unit(s) back to the
default diagnostic session.
19 Update programming
The view for update programming with the "VEH-FL" tab caption contains a hierarchical table of all
programmable control units. The control unit selected in the control unit list is also selected by default
in this list. The table has the columns Control unit address, Detailed control unit information, Flash
selection and Flash status. The flash container selected for the corresponding control unit is displayed
in the last column but one mentioned. The flash containers available for a control unit are displayed in
the table one hierarchy level below the corresponding control unit. Subsystems may also have their
own flash containers. It is possible to add one or more flash containers to a control unit. The baud rate
is only displayed if its setting deviates from the standard rate set in the Administration area (function
configuration).
Session selection
The selection of the flash sessions for which flash reprogramming is required from a flash container is
made using a session selection dialogue, which is described below. If a flash container or a flash session is selected, the 'Session selection' button for opening the dialogue is enabled. If a flash container
is selected, when this button is pressed or if the defined key combination is used, the session selection
dialogue appears for edit mode. If a flash container is selected, all sessions included are pre-selected,
without the dialogue being opened at this time. The sessions are selected in the dialogue using checkboxes. When the session selection dialogue is opened, all sessions selected so far as pre-selected. The
order of the flash sessions is displayed in the order in the dialogue and provided for flash reprogramming as returned by the MCD system when querying the available sessions. The user cannot sort the
table contents of the session selection. The session selection dialogue has a combobox and a label for
setting the baud rate, which are only enabled for KWP control units.
Administration settings
The default path for flash files can be set in the Administration area. The default is the same as for
ODIS Service. For this, the corresponding ODIS Service configuration entry is applied. For KWP
flash reprogramming operations there is a setting option for specifying the standard baud rate. Possible
values: default from the container, 1 MBaud, 500kBit, 100kBit.
System42
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 41 von 64
There is a "System 42" button with the System 42 icon in the function navigation area. It opens a System-42 dialogue for selecting suitable flash containers for the currently selected control unit. The flash
containers that can be selected from System 42 are filtered by the part number of the corresponding
control unit, ignoring the indices at the end of the part numbers. The selected flash container is
downloaded after confirming the dialogue and stored temporarily in the local path set in the Administration area. The following information is displayed in the flash container selection table for every
flash container:





The name of the relevant basic control unit
The name of the container file
The software version
The hardware version
The part number
The default setting for the sorted output of the entries in the flash container selection table is defined
using the name of the basic control unit, then the part number, followed by the software version. If the
user clicks on a column heading of the table to change the sort order, sorting by this columns is performed first, then according to the default order. The following information is displayed in the flash
container selection dialogue for the control unit in question:




The control unit name with diagnostic address
The part numbers read
The software version read
The hardware version read
It is possible to select one or several flash containers. A note on flash reprogramming is displayed in
the dialogue, which always applies to the container just selected. The selected flash containers are
downloaded after pressing the "Done" button and stored temporarily in the local path set in the Administration area. If a flash container was downloaded, the flash sessions included are automatically
assigned with the selected control units. When the "Continue" button is pressed, all files in a relation
with the selected flash containers are displayed in the dialogue. In this state, the "Continue" button is
disabled. The user has the option of selecting all files via checkbox. If the user has selected other files
that are not flash containers, a "Save file" dialogue will appear when the "Done" button is clicked. All
files selected by the user using the checkboxes are saved by the application to the selected folder, apart
from the flash containers.
Local flash files
There is also a "Local flash file" button with a folder icon. It opens a file selection dialogue for selecting a flash file at a file system, i.e. the local hard drive, a network drive, a CD or DVD, a USB stick or
SD card.
The file selection filter for local files includes the following formats:


for UDS: *.sox, *.frf and *.odx.
for KWP: *.stt and *.sgo
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 42 von 64
in addition, the user can select the "All files *.*" filter.
External editor
If a container for a control unit is selected, it can be opened in an external editor by clicking on the
"Open in external editor" button.
Subsystems
Subsystems of UDS control units are loaded into the control unit list according to the setting for "loading subsystems" in the Administration area (function configuration) when the main control unit is selected (Release 3.2 and higher). A "Read subsystems" button can be used to load the subsystems for
the currently selected control unit. This button is only active for UDS control units, if the administration setting "Load subsystems" (function configuration) is deactivated and data input of the subsystems of the selected control unit is intended.
Version check
In the event of a version conflict, i.e. ECU version >= container version, or if a version cannot be determined, a warning message is displayed, in which the user can cancel the flashing operation for the
corresponding control unit. The version check for KWP control units can be deactivated in the Administration area (function configuration).
Flash sequence
After clicking on the "Start flashing" button or using the shortcut Ctrl+P, a confirmation dialogue appears. On confirming it the user will be asked whether logging is to be performed in the existing log or
in a new log. A progress dialogue appears when flashing begins. It contains information on the overall
progress of the flashing process (in the form of a progress bar) and further individual pieces of information. If the user presses the "Cancel" button, cancellation takes place at the next possible time. If
cancellation is not possible immediately, a status message informs the user that cancellation will take
place. If errors occur during flashing they are only logged, but the overall sequence is completed. After
the complete flashing operation (even if it was cancelled), the user is asked whether all fault memory
entries in all control units are to be deleted. When the entire flashing operation is complete, a result
dialogue is displayed. The number of successfully flashed, cancelled and unsuccessfully flashed containers is displayed. In addition, the "Display log" button (on the side bar) can be used to display the
log. During flashing, information on the flash sequence is automatically added to the result log, which
is saved each time a container is completed. If a new log file is created for flashing, the file name is
selected automatically as follows:
Flash_<VIN>_<timestamp>.xml
The timestamp is displayed in the format yyyymmddTThhmmss.

20 Fault memory for overall system
If the operator selects the entry "Entire fault memory" in the function menu of the "Control unit list"
view in the "Vehicle services" category via double click, the "VEH-DTC" view opens for displaying
the fault memories of all control units that can be accessed. They are displayed in a table that is similar
to the control unit list. On opening the view, reading the fault memory is automatically started. Fault
entries identified consisting of the following components are displayed in the table in the hierarchy
level below the corresponding control unit:
1.
2.
3.
4.
For UDS/KWP the SAE code if available, otherwise the event code,
For KWP the event type in decimal representation,
The event text,
In brackets: the event type in text form for KWP + static/sporadic, active/passive for UDS.
Indication via the changed number of faults is made by a "+" in front of the control unit entry.
The operator can perform the following action in this view:
1. The operator can switch to the view of fault memory entries for the specific control unit for
control units already displayed by double-clicking on the corresponding row - even if determining the entries via all control units is not completed yet. As a result, the content of the fault
memory of the selected vehicle system is displayed on a new tab.
2. The operator can update the displayed entries manually, which stops any loop for reading the
remaining control units still running after the currently read control unit and restarts it. In such
a case, the view is not deleted completely. Only the rows already read are overwritten. A refresh during time-controlled automatic update (see next list item) results in the time already
elapsed being reset to zero.
3. The operator can activate a time-controlled, automatic update by defining the interval for the
update and activating this function; then, the number of fault memory entries of the control
units are read and displayed every time the interval set in the Administration area is reached as
described above. The specification of the interval refers to the time from the start of a cycle
until the start of the next cycle. If the set interval is shorter than the time required to read the
fault memory, the next cycle is started immediately after the end of a cycle.
4. The user can erase the fault memories for the entire system. For this, there are two options that
can be selected from a drop-down list:
"Erase individually":
If you select "Individually", OBD-relevant UDS control units are erased first using the corresponding
functional OBD command. Then the fault memories of the other control units are erased individually
in a loop. Immediately after erasure, the fault memory of the corresponding control unit is re-read and
the result is displayed on the user interface.
"Erase fault memories of all control units simultaneously":
This function, triggered via "Overall system" erases the fault memories of all control units that support the corresponding services within as short a time as possible. Control units that communicate via
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 44 von 64
K line or CAN-TP-1.6 are not available with this method. This function can also be triggered using the
"DEL" shortcut.
The erasure is performed after pressing the "Execute" button according to the method selected in the
drop-down list. The "Execute" button is disabled for the duration of executing the erasure command.
In addition, a "Now" button is available to the user for manual update of the list of events in the "Update" field. Automatic update is activated via the "in cycles" checkbox and the corresponding interval
is set in the Administration area (Function configuration->Cycle times). During automatic update, the
user may continue to use the button for manual update if current results are required in the meantime.
The "Cancel" button stops the reading cycle. The "in cycles" checkbox is deactivated. A new reading
cycle can now be started using "Now".
The operator can additionally have measured values displayed in the "Measured values" field. For this
a suitable preset must be selected from the drop-down list. If the "Read only in case of events" checkbox is selected, the measured values are only read if the corresponding control unit has fault memory
entries.
Double-click on a table row to select the "Read fault memory" function for the corresponding control
unit. The result is displayed in a fault memory view; if none exists, a new fault memory view will be
created and the result displayed there.
21 Transfer code / adaption
The operator can transfer codes or adaptations read once to other control units in this result view entitled "VEH-CDA". The information on one or more control units can be transferred here.
The view contains the following buttons for this purpose:
1. "Read data"
2. "Load data"
3. "Write data"
There is a checkbox, "Read KWP control units", arranged below the buttons, which is selected by
default. If the selection is deleted, no KWP control units are read, regardless of the selection in the
control unit list.
A list of all control units that can be coded / adapted is displayed on the left side of the view. All
coded control units are listed in hierarchical form in the first column, "System".
In the second and third columns, "Coding data" and "Adaptation data", an icon indicates that template
data is available for this control unit. The symbols used have the following meaning:
Green tick: all parameters of the control unit can be written, i.e. there are more or less the same number of parameters in the data input as in the loaded data record.

Yellow caution sign: the loaded data only reflects some of the ODX data input, i.e. parametrisation of
the control unit might be incomplete after entering the data.
Red diagonal cross: the control unit is missing completely in the loaded data or in the vehicle's ODX
data input.
In the fourth column, "Select data", the user can use a drop-down list to select the data to be read or
written.

Adaptions
Codes
Adaptions and codes
The user can use an additional entry, "- Delete selection -", to undo the selection. A blank entry is then
displayed in the table.
Two checkboxes, "Adaptions" and "Codes" (grouping title: "Data of all ECUs"), are arranged in the
bottom right area of the view. On selecting one of the checkboxes, the corresponding selection is supplemented or removed for all control units of the list.
Examples:
1. That the code is to be written was already selected individually for the engine. On selecting the
checkbox for adaptations, the corresponding engine entry is changed to "Adaptations and
codes". For all other control units, only the adaptation is selected.
2. "Adaptation and coding" has already been selected for the engine. The checkbox for codes has
already been selected and will now be deselected. Then the selection for the engine changes to
"Adaptations".
"Read data" function
As soon as one or more control units are selected using the drop-down list, the data of the selected
systems can be read using the "Read data" button. The status indication for any loaded data is reset by
the reading operation and the loaded data is rejected. When reading is finished, a standard result log is
automatically created with the coding and adaptation information. The log is automatically saved after
the reading cycle.
Load data function
To make the information available for a subsequent write operation, it is first imported from a result
log using the function previously created. Pressing the "Load data" button opens a dialogue box for
selecting the desired result log. During the reading operation, the last adaptation or coding entry from
the result log is used for every control unit as the basis for subsequent data input.
The available information is displayed in the "Coding data" and "Adaptation data" columns as described above.
Write data function
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 46 von 64
After any preselection of the control units for which data input is required, the write operation can be
executed using the "Write data" button. If the vehicle for which data input is intended does not contain
all control units previously selected from the selection list (e.g. the selection list was generated from a
log for another vehicle), the superfluous data is ignored. Whether the target control units are compatible with the code to be written is also checked. The check is based on the VW/Audi part numbers
(software part numbers). If this condition is not complied with, a dialogue box is displayed for each of
these control units with the different versions in which the user can skip the corresponding write operation or still have it performed.
Handling NRCs for access rights and diagnostic sessions
If access authorisation is required in the "Transfer coding/adaptation" vehicle function for a control
unit, the user has the option of not only cancelling this input, but also of suppressing all other queries
of an access authorisation for this control unit. Only the adaptation values that can be read out are
added to the log. Adaptation values that could not be determined due to an NRC, are not added to the
log of the "Transfer code/adaptation" function either.
22 Creating a build status documentation
Selecting the "Installation state" function opens a view called "VEH - BZD". The control unit list is
displayed on the left side of the view like with the "Read fault memory for overall system" function.
The function navigation bar on the right contains the function's control elements.
"Sequence" grouping with checkboxes
The user can use the Sequence checkboxes to define an individual sequence for entering the build
status.
"Read BZD" checkbox (always selected)
Since the function does not make any sense without this step, the corresponding checkbox is always
selected and cannot be changed.
"Read event memory" checkbox
The event memories of all control units are read.
"Erase event memory" checkbox
The event memories of all control units are erased.
"Read event memory" checkbox
The event memories of all control units are re-read. That is only practical if the event memories were
previously erased. On selecting the second entry, "Read event memory", during the process the "Erase

option, the second entry, "Read event memory", is automatically deselected.
"BZD protocol" checkbox
All coded control units in the vehicle to be tested in the gateway installation list are diagnosed here. If
there is no gateway installation list, the potentially available maximum installation of the control units
is diagnosed. To configure the control unit information to be read out, presets can be used for measured values and adaptations. For this, all presets stored in the "bzd_logs\bzd_presets" folder are read
out during a reading cycle for identifying the build status and entered in the log.
"VDS protocol" checkbox
Input essentially takes place in the same way as for a BZD protocol. However, pressing the "Start
process" button first opens a dialogue box with a text field for the user name. The dialogue also has
test fields for the VIN, the internal vehicle number and the mileage. The application enters the data
determined as default values in these fields, which can however be changed or supplemented by the
user. The presets are taken from the "vds_logs\vds_presets" folder.
Functions
"Start process" button
After pressing this button, all control units in the vehicle to be tested coded in the gateway installation
list are diagnosed. If there is no gateway installation list, the potentially available maximum installation of the control units is diagnosed. To configure the control unit information to be read out, presets
can be used for measured values and adaptations. For this, all presets stored in the
"bzd_logs\bzd_presets" or "vds_logs\vds_presets" folders are read out during the reading cycle and
entered in the log.
"Display/compare logs" button
The button opens a modal dialogue entitled "Display / comparison of BZD / VDS protocols", in which
two lists with the available protocols are provided to the user for selection. Both lists contain the VDS
and BZD protocols available on the computer in a tree structure. The three categories "VDS protocols", "VDS protocols (download)" and "BZD protocols" are displayed at the first tree level. The
available protocols of the corresponding category are available one level further down.
The "Compare protocols" button is used to select the comparison of the protocols. The button is enabled if precisely one protocol is selected from both lists. The "Delete" button arranged below the right
selection list can be used to delete the protocols selected in the right selection list. The user can use a
"Display" button to have the selected protocol displayed (in the right list in the case of single selection
only). It is displayed in the computer's standard browser.
The "Load from VDS" button activates a function for downloading protocols already stored in VDS.
After responding to a login dialogue and successful login, another modal dialogue appears that can be
used to select the VDS protocol to be downloaded. A list of all available protocols is displayed in this
dialogue. This list can be limited using the following search criteria:

The user can use the "Search" button to initiate the update of the selection list. When the "Download"
button is pressed, the selected protocols are downloaded and saved to the "vds_logs\download" folder
in the ODIS Engineering installation path.
"Send protocols" button
The "Send protocols" button is available using the corresponding button (cf. Fig. 64) or via the "Send
protocol..." button on the expand bar in the BZD section. Access to the function in the latter way is
also possible without a connection to the vehicle. The data is transferred to VDS in the result log format of ODIS Engineering (see "Result log" specifications catalogue). There is an option that defines
the URL fir VDS in the standard configuration file config.ini for ODIS Engineering. A group entitled
"Send protocol" must be implemented in the administration, in the "Function configuration" area in the
"Installation state" category that can be used to configure the "Send protocol" function. A combobox
with the caption "Transmission options" can be used to configure the selection options

. The option "Send to VDS" is selected by default. A text field with the caption "Path to the file server:
" can be used to specify a path on the network drive for the optional transmission of the protocol to a
file server. It has a button for activating an additional file selection dialogue. As long as an invalid or
inaccessible path is specified, a decorator identifies the text field accordingly. It is only possible to
save the administration option if a valid or blank path was specified. When the "Send protocol" function is selected, a dialogue appears in which the result logs to be transferred can be selected from the
"vds_logs" folder. If the option for transmission to VDS was selected in the administration, the protocols can also be selected from the "vds_logs/vds_retry" folder in this dialogue in the same, flat list
view. If the option for transmission to a file server was selected in the administration, the protocols
can also be selected from the "vds_logs/fileserver_retry" folder in this dialogue in the same, flat list
view. Selection takes place by selecting a checkbox in a list/table of all available protocols. Two buttons are arranged under this list, with the captions "Select all" and "Deselect all". If you press "Select
all", all protocols are selected in the list. If you press "Delete selection", all previously existing selections are cancelled. The selected VDS protocols can be deleted using a "Delete" button in this dialogue. The button can also be selected using the "Del" key if the right-hand table has the input focus.
Deletion is only performed after a confirmation prompt is displayed in a confirmation dialogue. The
option "yes" (= confirm deletion) is set by default. The selected VDS protocols can be transferred to
the destinations selected in the administration using the "Send" button. Transmission to the file server
only takes place if a storage path that is not blank was specified in the administration. Protocols stored
in the "vds_logs/vds_retry" folder are only sent to the VDS server and protocols stored in the
"vds_logs/fileserver_retry" folder are only sent to the file server. Protocols successfully transferred to

all destinations are automatically deleted from the "vds_logs" folder. A protocol is assessed as having
been sent to VDS successfully if it was confirmed by the VDS server with the "OK !" status. If the
protocol could not be sent to one of the selected transmission destinations (VDS or file server), the
protocol is not deleted from the "vds_logs" folder. In the special case that transmission of the protocol
to the VDS server was not successful (status does not start with "OK"), the protocol is transferred to a
"vds_retry" folder in the "vds_logs" folder. If transmission of the protocol to the VDS server was answered with the "OK ??" status, the protocol is transferred to a "vds_problems" backup folder in the
"vds_logs" folder. In the special case that transmission of the protocol to the file server was not successful, the protocol is transferred to a "fileserver_retry" folder in the "vds_logs" folder. After transmission, a dialogue is displayed to the user with any errors that occurred. The table displayed there has
three groups:



The protocol could not be sent
Protocol was sent to VDS with warnings and saved to the VDS_Backup folder (not visible in
the VDS system)
Protocol was successfully sent
Protocols transferred successfully to one or both destinations are listed once under the section entitled
"Protocol was sent successfully". Protocols sent to VDS with warnings (status "OK ??") are listed in
the corresponding section and given the warning message from the VDS server. Protocols that could
not be transferred are additionally given a message on the cause of the fault in the section "Protocol
could not be sent". In the event of transmission to the file server, the message "Saving to the file server
was not successful" is added. In the event of transmission to VDS, the feedback from the VDS server
is added as a note. If none of the two transmission options was successful, the corresponding protocol
must be listed twice in the section "Protocols could not be sent".
Input of measure code
If "Send to Service42/Carport" is selected in the administration, after closing the selection dialogue of
the build status files another dialogue appears for entering the measure code. The name of the window
for entering the measure code is "Enter measure code". The user can enter a measure code in a singleline text box in the "Enter measure code" window. Only letters (A..Z) and numerals can be entered in
the text box for entering the measure code. Letters entered in the text box for entering the measure
code must be in upper case. In addition to the text box for entering the measure code, a selected radio
button must also be displayed. If the text box for entering the measure code is selected and blank, it is
marked as invalid by displaying it on a red background. A non-selected checkbox with the caption
"general update of the build status" is displayed under the text box for entering the measure code. The
actual transmission is only started when the user enters a measure code or selects "general update of
the build status".
Displaying the transmission results
After the transmission of the test, a dialogue is presented to the user with any errors that occurred. The
table displayed has three groups:

is added as a note. In the event of transmission to Service42/Carport, the feedback from the Service42
server is added as a note. If during transmission to Service42/Carport, transformation was not possible
due to incompatibility with the scheme, this error is added as a note. If none of the two transmission
options was successful, the corresponding protocol is listed twice in the section "Protocols could not
be sent".
"Build status check" button
Pressing the "Build status check" button opens a dialogue box, which essentially contains two lists to
be displayed next to each other for the available logs and the available installation rules. The "Build
status check" function is also available via the expand bar and the "Data" button as an item in the
opening menu without a connection to the vehicle. The list of available protocols from the "bzd_logs"
folder is displayed on the left side of the dialogue. Every protocol can be selected individually via a
checkbox. Multiple selection is not permitted A "Delete" button for deleting the selected protocol is
arranged under the protocol list. The list of available installation rules from the "bzd_logs\VBV"
folder is displayed on the right side of the dialogue. It must be possible to select every installation rule
individually via a checkbox. Multiple selection is not permitted Two buttons are arranged under the
list of installation rules: "load from system42" for loading a further installation rule and "Delete" for
deleting the selected installation rule. To obtain an installation rule from System42, a dialogue appears
for user login and for selecting the vehicle project and the installation rule. After loading the installation rule from System42, it is saved to the "bzd_logs\VBV" folder and automatically entered and preselected in the selection list. After pressing the "Check" button, the result of the build status check is
displayed to the user.
23 Coding the gateway installation list
Coding the gateway installation list for KWP 2000
With a KWP2000 gateway, selecting "Code" in the function menu displays the installation list (suffix
"BMC"). This essentially corresponds to the "Code bus master" view for UDS. Since the actual installation cannot be determined for KWP2000 gateways, there are two restrictions, however:
1. Only an "Additional installation" is displayed in the "Actual" column (i.e. the control unit is
not encoded, but was found in the vehicle by the gateway),
2. The "Code automatically" button is not displayed here, since a reliable build status cannot be
determined.

Code UDS bus master (gateway)
Coding a UDS bus master (gateway) is treated separately, since this function requires a view for all
control units. It shall be assumed that a vehicle project can have several bus masters.
23.1 Selecting the "Code bus master" function in "Control
unit list" view
The installation list code of a bus master is displayed in the selection list of the diagnostic functions in
the "Control unit list" view in the "Diagnostic function" category.
23.2 Display options of the installation lists
The installation list of a bus master is coded in a separate view. The coding information is displayed in
a table with four columns and the following headings:

"Target" column
The "Coded" column has a checkbox in each row after reading, which indicates whether the corresponding control unit is coded or not. The checkbox can be selected and deselected by the user.
23.2.3
"Control unit" column
The "Control unit" column contains the diagnostic address with the corresponding system name (e.g.
01 - Engine electronics). If no diagnostic address is assigned to a system, the node address is displayed
in hexadecimal format in square brackets together with the corresponding system name (e.g.: [42] Door control unit, rear left). The node address 0x00 is not displayed. If the system name of a diagnostic address or node address is not known, the entry is described as follows:
Diagnostic address + text [unknown system] (e.g. 00 - unknown system)
Node address + text [unknown system] (e.g. [49] - unknown system)
23.2.4
"GW information" column
The following information is displayed in this column:
1. GatewayComponentList BusIdentifier (0x2A2D)
2. GatewayComponentList DiagProt (0x2A29)
If a service does not return a value (e.g. reserved values or an NRC), this value or the NRC is not output. If both services return values, the responses are displayed next to each other, separated by " / "
(e.g. CAN drive / ISO-TP). The bus identifier is specified first.
23.2.5
Sort function of the table
All columns are sorted alphabetically in ascending and descending order. The following applies to the
order in the "Actual no." column: not coded/identified to coded/not identified to coded/identified control units. The default sort order of the table is first by the installation status of the control units and
then alphabetically by the diagnostic/node address. With alphabetic sorting by system names, the unknown system names are displayed at the very bottom.
23.3 Function of the buttons on the right side of the view
The "Apply" button is used to enter the code in the "Target" column according to the selected control
units. Pressing this button also displays a confirmation dialogue: "Coding will be performed using the
"Coded" column. Do you really want to perform coding?". The input focus is initially set to "Yes".
The "Code automatically" button is used to write the code according to the installation state identified
by the control unit, i.e. the code is written for all control units indicated by the "?" and "✔" symbols
under "Actual". Pressing this button also displays a confirmation dialogue. The display text is: "CodODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32

ing the subsystem installations identified by the control unit. User-defined changes will not be applied.
Do you really want to perform coding?". The input focus is initially set to "Yes". After a successful
response from the control unit, the coding information is re-read and displayed in the display area.
23.4 Coding the installation list for the overall vehicle
automatically
The "Vehicle services" area has a function, which determines all bus masters of diagnostic class 4 in
the vehicle and updates the target installation lists according to the ACTUAL installation read and
identified. This function is triggered using the "Automatically code" button. No control unit list with
more detailed information on the installation state is displayed in this view. Only the code of the target
installation state is changed in the control units. Other code/adaptation values are not affected by this
function and remain unchanged.
24 Roller mode
Roller mode is a special mode of operation of the control units in the vehicle for the roller test rig
measurement. The ambient conditions on the roller test rig are different from those during normal
driving on the road. Control units and/or functions that control the driving state and respond incorrectly due to the changed ambient conditions, must be switched off in parts according to the legislator.
The "Roller mode" function type is used for the deactivation of specific components to ensure safe
operation on the roller test rig. A further use of this function is the standardised measurement of the
vehicles' fuel consumption.
User interface
The user interface of the "Roller mode" function is displayed in the form of a function view. The
"Start roller mode" button is used to enable "roller mode" in the vehicle. It is disabled using the "Exit
roller mode" button. The "Read roller mode status" button is used to read the "roller mode" status displayed in the vehicle, which is updated in a table. A checkbox entitled "Cyclic reading of the roller
mode status" (marking 5) enables the user to activate cycle reading of the roller mode status. It is selected by default. The "Control unit list roller mode" does not have any entries at the start of the roller
mode cycle (prior to selecting the "Roller mode" function). After the end of the roller mode cycle (exiting the "roller mode" function), it is erased. The "Control unit list roller mode" table consists of the
columns Control unit ID, Control unit name, Roller mode status and Roller mode error. The control
unit ID is the 5-baud control address of the control unit. The Control unit names column contains the
system names of the corresponding control unit. Unknown control unit names are designated as "Unknown system". The roller mode status may have the values "Inactive", "Active" and "Timeout". The
status output is highlighted in colour. Table rows with the "Inactive" status are displayed in grey fonts,
those with the "Active" status in green fonts. Table rows with the "Error" status are displayed in the
colour red. The information from the error bits of the Roller_Test_Stand_Mode measured value is
stored in the Roller mode errors column. Either the text "No error" is displayed or a text determined
using the error bits from ODX data input.

25 OBD
To check the OBD scopes in the vehicle, a diagnostic function is provided in ODIS. This chapter describes the implementation required on the graphical user interface for this, and the diagnostic services
required for implementation. The generically available ODX data is used for the implementation of the
OBD functions. After determining the functions supported, the system displays the list of supported
functions. The user can use this list to decide which diagnostic functions are to be executed in the vehicle. Which services must be executed in which order and in the form of result views is described
individually for each mode from 0x01 to 0x0A.
25.1 Selecting the OBD diagnostic function
The ODIS Engineering application displays the OBD diagnostic function as a vehicle function in the
diagnostic function tree of the control unit list. The result tabs for the OBD diagnostic function are
indicated by "OBD" at the start. A dollar character and the corresponding OBD Mode ID are added to
this identifier as soon as the user selects an OBD mode and executes it. The result view is displayed in
the form of a wizard view.
25.2 Selecting the OBD modes
Whether the vehicle supports OBD services, whether via K-line or CAN, is identified by the application by checking which protocol the vehicle uses to respond to mode 01, PID 00. If the vehicle does
not respond, neither via CAN nor K-line, the application displays that the vehicle is not responding to
OBD functions in the result table. If no OBD function has data in the vehicle project, the application
indicates that there is no corresponding OBD data. If connection set-up was successful, the application
lists services of the functional group used according to its designation in the MCD project in the result
table. The OBD modes to be executed are selected using radio buttons. The complete row is clicksensitive. If the user clicks on the wizard arrow on the right, the application executes the selected OBD
mode. Double-click on the row with the desired OBD service to execute it directly. Modes without
data input in the vehicle data are displayed in greyed-out form by the application, and the expected
mode name is displayed.
25.3 Displaying supported functions
For modes 1,2,5,6,8 and 9, the application queries the functions supported by the vehicle. It displays
the functions supported by the vehicle in a list. If no control unit gives a positive response to the query
for supported functions, the application displays a message: "No control unit has reported a supported
function for this OBD mode.". A "display all" checkbox allows the user to have the unfiltered list of
functions displayed, regardless of the vehicle's responses. Those entries are displayed in the list in
greyed-out form that the vehicle has reported as not supported. It is possible to select entries from the
list that were reported as not being supported. Below the list of supported functions, the application
provides the option of filtering the functions.

User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 55 von 64
25.4 Displaying the OBD results
The application displays a table in the result view. The responses to a parameter request are displayed
below each other in the table. This is done hierarchically, grouped one level below the corresponding
parameter name, sorted in ascending order by the diagnostic addresses of the responding control units.
In faulty control unit implementations, a control unit might not send any response for a function, even
though it has reported that it supports this function using its support functions. This faulty behaviour is
displayed to the user. The application displays the message "No response from the control unit". The
reverse case is also possible. This faulty behaviour is displayed to the user by the application with the
message "Control unit reports a result, although it does not support the function". The user can use the
standard operating elements of the "Refresh" group to control refreshing of the view.
In the OBD Services administration group, the user can define the cycle times for all OBD services
together. A "Read in cycles" checkbox can be used to select whether reading is to be performed by
default or in cycles.
25.5 Sequence of the various OBD services
25.5.1
Mode 01 - Request Current Powertrain Diagnostic Data
In the "Display functions supported" step, the application determines all PIDs that can be queried in
the vehicle and displays them. In the "Display OBD results" step, all the data is determined in cycles
for the PIDS and displayed.
25.5.2
Mode 02 - Request Powertrain Freeze Frame Data
In the "Display functions supported" step, the application determines the PIDs that can be queried in
the vehicle and displays them. In the "Display OBD results" step, all the data is determined in cycles
for the PIDS and displayed.
25.5.3
Mode 03 - Request Emission-Related Diagnostic Trouble
Codes
The application determines the number of DTCs stored in the control unit. Then the application determines the DTCs stored in the vehicle. If the number of DTCs determined in mode 01 - PID 01 does
not correspond to the number of DTCs transferred in mode 03 in at least one control unit, the application displays an error message. In the error message, the application displays all control units with the
reported number of faults and the number of DTCs transferred, if they do not match. The DTCs are
displayed grouped by control units. The actual result parameters are displayed in hierarchical form.
The control units are sorted by their diagnostic address in ascending order. The reporting control unit
as the topmost hierarchy element of the group is displayed with the designation: Diagnostic address Customer service name of the control unit.

User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 56 von 64
25.5.4
Mode 04 - Clear/Reset Emission-Related Diagnostic Information
If the user executes the Clear/Reset Emission-Related Diagnostic Information function without querying mode 03 first after diagnostic start-up, the application displays a warning in a modal dialogue box:
The fault memory has not yet been queried. The following is deleted:
The number and contents of the fault memories, operating conditions
and test results will be deleted. Do you really want to continue?
Otherwise the first line of the above warning is omitted. A "Delete" button in this dialogue is used to
delete the data after confirmation. A "Cancel" button is used to abort the operation. If control units
respond with NRC $22 (Conditions not Correct), a dialogue box to be confirmed by the user is displayed: "At least one control unit has reported that the preconditions for deleting have not been met.
Switch off the engine and switch on the ignition.". The responses of all control units are also displayed
in this dialogue. If all control units give a positive response, a message is displayed to the user with the
text "The diagnostic data has been deleted in the following control units:", in which all control units
with a positive response are listed. After switching to mode 04, the application returns to the "Call
OBD mode" view.
25.5.5
Mode 05 - Request Oxygen Sensor Monitoring Test Results
In the "Display functions supported" step, the application determines all TIDs from the vehicle that
can be queried and displays them. In this mode there is another step similar to "Display functions supported", in which the user selects those sensors for which measurement results are desired. In the
"Display OBD results" step, the application determines all the data for the TIDs and sensors selected
by the user and displays them. This is done in cycles.
25.5.6
Mode 06 - Request On-Board Monitoring Test Results for
Specific Monitored Systems
In the "Display functions supported" step, the application determines all TIDs from the vehicle that
can be queried and displays them. In the "Display OBD results" step, it determines all the data for the
selected TIDs and displays them in cycles.

User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 57 von 64
25.5.7
Mode 07 - Request Emission-Related Diagnostic Trouble
Codes Detected During Current or Last Completed Driving Cycle
The application determines the DTCs stored in the vehicle. It displays the DTCs in the result view,
grouped by control units. The control units are sorted by their diagnostic address in ascending order.
The application displays the reporting control unit as the topmost hierarchy element of the group with
the designation: Diagnostic address - Customer service name of the control unit. The DTC contents are
displayed like in the measured values view, i.e. hierarchically.
25.5.8
Mode 08 - Request Control of On-Board System, Test or
Component
In the "Display functions supported" step, the application determines all TIDs from the vehicle that
can be queried and displays them. Unlike the standard performance, the application allows the user to
only select a single TID. In the "Display OBD results" step, the application determines all the data for
the TIDs selected by the user and displays them.
25.5.9
Mode 09 - Request Vehicle Information
In the "Display functions supported" step, the application determines all INFOTYPEs from the vehicle
that can be queried and displays them. In the "Display OBD results" step, the application determines
all the data for the INFOTYPEs selected by the user and displays them.
25.5.10
Mode 0A - Request Emission-Related Diagnostic Trouble
Codes with Permanent Status
The application displays the DTCs in the result view, grouped by control units. The application sorts
the control units by their diagnostic address in ascending order. The reporting control unit as the topmost hierarchy element of the group is displayed with the designation: Diagnostic address - Customer
service name of the control unit. The DTC contents are displayed like in the measured values view, i.e.
all result parameters are displayed hierarchically.
26 Executing GFF scripts
To use script functions, you have the option of executing function tests of guided fault finding (GFF).
The function uses two views with the designations ("FZG-SLI") and ("FZG-SAB") . Selecting the
"Script sequence" function in the function menu of the control unit view takes you to the "VEH-SLI"
view. The scripts included in the internal database of the application (DIDB) are displayed in the selection list of this view. A GFF script selected here is started using the "►" button. The button with
the folder symbol opens a file dialogue for an external directory. A GFF script selected here is executed directly on pressing the  button of the file dialogue. The default path for the external directory
is set in the Administration area (Storage locations). After selecting and starting a script, the "VEHSAB" view is displayed. It provides the same control options as in guided fault finding in Offboard

Diagnostic Information System Service. The "Cancel test" button can be used to prematurely stop a
test sequence. However, closing the "VEH-SAB" view or switching to the "VEH-SLI" view is not
possible during the test sequence. If a script sequence is finished, this button is inactive. The "VEHSAB" view can now be closed or you can switch to the "VEH-SLI" view. To log the script sequence,
the default log for guided fault finding is used.
Use the Save diagnostic protocol button in the "VEH-SLI" view to save it to the location set in the
Administration area (Storage locations).
27 Macro function
The macro functions can be used to automate ODIS Engineering operation sequences. The user is thus
able to record recurring operation sequences and run them later automatically. Recording macros is
controlled using appropriate buttons on the expand bar. The execution of macros is selected via a corresponding item in the function menu of the "Control unit list" view.
Recording macros
The expand bar has a group of buttons for controlling the recording of a macro. The ● button starts the
recording of the next user actions. If it is pressed, a file selection dialogue appears, which can be used
by the user to specify the file name of the recorded macro. The path is set by default to a directory
configured in the Administration area (Storage locations). However, the user can also create subdirectories in this directory and save the macro there. After closing this dialogue with "OK", all user
actions resulting in diagnostic action are recorded. The▐▐ button interrupts the recording. Subsequent
user actions are not recorded. The recording can, however, be continued using the ● button. The ■
button stops the recording and closes the macro file.
Executing macros
The execution of a macro is started by selecting the "Macro" item in the function menu of the "Control
unit list" view. That opens the view with the "VEH-MAC" tab. The view contains a list with all macros and sub-directories in a directory that can be configured in the Administration area (Storage locations). The user can select a macro for execution here or in one of the possibly included subdirectories. The ► button starts the execution of a macro. The ☼ button (bug symbol) starts the execution of the macro in the debugger in individual step mode. The execution can be started using the
"ENTER" shortcut.
On starting the execution, a window opens for controlling the sequence of the macro, which covers the
application's main window. None of the user actions available via the main window are thus possible
in the application for the duration of the execution of the macro. Depending on the sequence mode
(normal or debug mode) the macro window's appearance deviates. In both modes, a console window
provides the user with feedback on the sequence of the macro. The macro outputs are displayed here,
as well as the end of the sequence. Depending on the reason for stopping the macro run, the "macro
execution finished" message is displayed when the macro is finished or "macro aborted by user" after

abortion by the user. The macro sequence can be controlled by the user using a group of buttons. In
both modes, the buttons
►: normal macro sequence,
▐▐ : pause,
■: stop (macro is aborted),
x: close window (only active if no macro is running),
and a drop-down list () are available for selecting the speed of the sequence. This selection list is
used to set the interval between the execution of two successive macro statements. In normal sequence
mode, the window has another button ☼ (bug symbol) that allows you to switch to debug mode. In
debug modus the console output appears in reduced size at the bottom of the window. The macro's
source text is displayed above it in a text field. The row that was last processed is highlighted in colour. Lists with the names and values of the local or global macro variables are arranged on top of each
other on the right. In this mode, the "Individual step" and "Animate" buttons are displayed instead of
the "Debug" button. The macro can be executed here step-by-step or in animated form with the set
interval. On switching from normal sequence mode to debug mode, the individual step control is active initially. In debug mode, the following buttons are available to the user:
"Individual step" button:
Pressing this button executes exactly one macro statement.
"Animate" button:
Pressing this button executes the statements at the set speed and the sequence is displayed. Press the
"Individual step" button to switch back to individual step mode.
"Execute" button:
The application switches back to normal mode and the debug window is closed. The current mode
(individual step or animation) is resumed if you switch back to debug mode.
"Stop" button:
The macro sequence is stopped (aborted).
"Close" button:
The debug window is closed (only enabled after stopping or cancelling the macro).
Notes on operation:
1. Macros are controlled at the level of macro commands. That means that a diagnostic function
triggered in a macro statement is executed before a "Pause" request takes effect.
2. In individual step mode, the cursor may remain in the same line for several steps. This happens if a line is made up of several partial expressions (e.g. "for" statement).

3. Imported Python scripts are not displayed in debug mode. The "Individual step" button works
for internal function calls like "Step into" and for external calls like "Step over".
4. In animated debug mode, the minimum interval between two statements is set to 0.1 s even if
0.0 s is configured.
5. A started macro virtually becomes part of the application's program code. In unfavourable
cases, errors in the macro sequence can block or partially block the application, despite the
cancellation function of the macro controller. This applies in particular to macros created by
users.
28 Trace function
The trace function is applied by the user via buttons in the "Trace" category on the expandable side
bar. Bus trace and PV trace can be controlled independently. The following buttons are used for this
purpose:
1.
2.
3.
4.
"Record" button → Recording starts or is continued
"Interrupt" button → Recording is interrupted
"Stop" button → Recording is stopped
"Display" button → A trace recording is displayed
Storage location of the trace file
The user can select a storage location for the trace files created under "Storage locations" in the Administration view (Storage locations) for each trace type. The trace controller sets the file name in such
a way that existing files cannot be overwritten. The created file name has the following structure:
CAN bus trace:
<VIN>_<timestamp>_CAN.trc
Kline bus trace: <VIN>_<timestamp>_KLINE.trc
CAN PV trace: <VIN>_<timestamp>_CAN.xpvt
Kline PV trace: <VIN>_<timestamp>_KLINE.xpvt
The timestamp has the format <YYYMMDD>T<HHMMSS>, e.g. "20100229T184556". The user can
select which trace (CAN or Kline) is enabled under "Function configuration" in the "Administration"
view. Two checkboxes are provided for this. Any change made here only takes effect once a new recording has been started.
Trace analysis
An evaluation program, the "Trace analyser", is provided along with the DTS. After selecting "Display", a file selection dialogue opens with the trace files that are available in the set directory. The last
recording is selected by default. After selecting it, the "Trace analyser" starts with the latest CAN trace
file.

29 Creating a result log
The "Log" button on the expand bar opens a menu. The user can find all functions required to create a
result log here.
"Save as"
The user can use this function to save the result log in its current state to a new file. For this, a file
selection dialogue appears, in which the user can define the storage path and the name of the result log
file. The default path configured in the Administration area (Storage locations) is selected by default in
the file selection dialogue. The application proposes a default file name to the user. In the case of an
existing internal vehicle number, the file name consists of the internal vehicle number, the current date
and the current time. If no internal vehicle number is available, the vehicle identification number is
used instead.
"Save"
The current state of the result log is saved to a file under the file name already assigned using the
"Save as" function. If no file name has been assigned, the "Save as" function also opens the file selection dialogue.
"Display"
The user can use this function to display the result log currently stored in the file system using his
computer's default browser. The 'Display result log' function is only active if all current changes were
saved.
"New"
The user can use this function to create a new result log. When a new result log is created, general
information, such as vehicle information, the date and version information, is automatically stored in
the log.
"Add"
This function is used to transfer the current view/diagnostic function to the log's XML structure. All
other, context-specific data is transferred to the log in the process, such as parameter information on
actuators.

30 Support function
The support system integrated in VAUDAS is used to create and send problem reports. The "Attach
curr. result log" checkbox is enabled if a result log is currently available. If no result log is available,
the user is informed about this the next time the query is sent. Message text: "The result log is required
for analysis. Would you like to send the request without the result log?". The user can use a checkbox
to attach log files of the application. If the checkbox is selected, all ecf.log and engine.log files are
ZIP-compressed and attached to the problem report. The checkbox is selected and cannot be changed
if the support request is also to be sent to the official support address. Any number of external files can
be additionally attached to the problem report.
The "E-mail address" text field for queries contains the e-mail address of the Administration area
(support) by default. However, this entry can be changed by the user. This address is entered in the
sent mail as the sender's address. A text field that can be edited as desired is for entering an e-mail
recipient address. Several addresses can be entered using a separator (";"). The support addressee can
be disabled using a "to support" checkbox. The checkbox is selected by default. The text field for the
e-mail text supports clipboard functions for text and graphics. If the support request cannot be sent
directly (e.g. in offline mode or in the event of transmission faults), it is saved and sent at the next
opportunity. For this, the ODIS Service procedure is applied. In this case, the user is informed about
this via a message dialogue.
31 Updating ODX runtime data
The update mechanism enables the automatic update to the latest version of an ODX data package.
The update mechanism provides the ODIS application user with an optional selection of all available
ODX data packages. The update mechanism can perform an automatic update check when ODIS is
started. It can also be activated manually using a button on the side bar.
The update information is selected by the application via an update server, i.e. a network drive that can
be accessed via URL. The user can configure the corresponding URL in the Administration area on the
"General" tab in the "ODX update" category. The user can use the update mechanism in the Administration area in the "ODX update" category. The cycle of the automatic update can be configured in
"Update cycle (0 deactivates the update):" in days. The application provides an option in the "ODX
update" category for disabling the selection of the available data package version, thus automatically
updating it to the latest version. In the "ODX Update" category, this option always has the entry "Always automatically update to the latest version", which is selected by default.
An update package is identified by the common version number (date). It consists of one or more vehicle projects. The name of the individual data packages of an update package corresponds to the name
of the respective vehicle project and thus always has exactly one vehicle project. The individual data
package is available in a compressed format (Zip).
After starting the update check (manually or automatically), the application displays a progress dialogue, which is used to inform the user that the update check is in progress. The manual start of the
ODIS Engineering Team, Tel. +49-5361-9-16 1 32
User Manual v6.01 (January 2014)
Seite 63 von 64
update check is only performed if no runtime project is loaded. If no runtime project is loaded the corresponding button for manually starting the update check is enabled on the side bar. Otherwise, it is
disabled. If the user has not selected the option of automatically updating to the latest version, after the
update check the application opens a dialogue box in which the user can select the desired version of
the complete ODX update package or individual vehicle projects from it. For this, the application displays the available versions of the update package in a table in the dialogue box and the vehicle projects included. The following information is displayed in this table:
1. Version number (column heading: "Version")
2. Compatible ODIS E versions (column heading: "compatible with")
3. Comment (column heading: "Description", from "description" attributes)
The user can use a checkbox to select the desired version of the update package or, as an alternative,
individual vehicle projects of precisely one update package. The application selects the version of the
update package currently installed on the computer and of the available vehicle projects. The user can
press a "Start" button to start the update mechanism. The "Cancel" button can be used to cancel the
update mechanism. If the update is cancelled, the vehicle projects available so far are retained. The
download of each vehicle project is displayed in a progress dialogue. After downloading each vehicle
project, the application checks the consistency of the downloaded files. If the consistency check produced errors, the application will inform the user of this by means of a dialogue. In this case, the user
has the option of restarting the data package download or of cancelling the update completely. If the
consistency check was successful, the application checks if there is sufficient memory space for the
update in the installation directory of the basic diagnostic components of the ODIS application. If not,
the application will inform the user of this problem. In this case, the update is cancelled. If there is
sufficient memory space, the actual update of the runtime projects starts. Then the application is restarted. Runtime projects not included in the data package selected for the update are not modified. All
runtime projects replaced during the update are saved. The update is displayed in a progress dialogue.
