4.3 “PARAMETERS” ENVIRONMENT
The “PARAMETERS” environment allows you to dynamically display (in
real time) the parameters that the ECU uses to manage its system.
Each parameter is associated with its own Unit of Measurement (in
brackets “(…)”) and, on the right-hand side of the screen, the value
sent back by the ECU.
As an indication, in the top part of the screen, we have the name of the
menu “ECU PARAMETER LIST”, the progressive number of the selected
parameter and the total number of parameters.

Use the UP and DOWN keys to scroll through one parameter at a time,
the TAB key to scroll through the pages, the ENTER key to display the
details of the selected parameter and the ESC key to exit the menu.
In case of loss of diagnostics communication refer to Chapter 6. .
By default the tester periodically tries to re-establish the connection: if
the connection is restored the menu for the selected ECU will be shown.
4.4 “ACTIVATION” ENVIRONMENT
The Activation environment allows the user to actuate the
transducers controlled by the ECU.
Within the Activation environment is a submenu with the various
available actuations.
Select the option required in the usual way (UP/DOWN to select,
ENTER to confirm, ESC to return to the previous menu).
After selecting a given actuation, the user is guided through the
available procedures by a series of menus (example: Start Engine), and
is asked to confirm commands sent to the ECU (example: Delete
Errors).
Finally, the user sends the diagnostics command to the ECU and the
message “RUNNING DIAGNOSIS” is displayed.
The user can interrupt the diagnosis by pressing ESC, or continue until
the ECU terminates the procedure, either correctly or because an

actuation error occurs (a message appears to indicate which of these is
the case).
All diagnostic programs have similar interfaces to the one described
above.
4.5 “ACQUISITION” ENVIRONMENT
The Acquisition environment allows the user to select any parameter
controlled by the ECU and record data on files.
These data files are stored on the disk tester memory to be used later in
off-line mode.
Using the “SKILL ORGANIZER”, they will be downloaded onto the PC
for analysis and printing.
Within the Acquisition environment there is a submenu with various
parameters available.
Select the option required in the usual way (UP/DOWN to select,
ENTER to confirm, ESC to return to the previous menu).

In order to save the files on the tester a vehicle serial number is
required, and it will be used to name files connected to other
information (timestamp).

5. Diagnostic example
This chapter describes the operation of a generic diagnosis
program, since all diagnosis programs follow the broad outline of the
procedure described below.
When it starts running, the diagnosis program displays the Skill Tester
logo.
Following the “DIAGNOSIS” MENU instructions, we can identify the car
model and the system to test.
Press any key to display a screen which gives the name of the program
and a set of data downloaded to check the ECU (assuming it to be
connected, switched on and operating). This screen is displayed for a
few seconds, unless the user presses a key.
On our example we select a “FERRARI 360 MODENA – MOTRONIC”.
Once selected follow the tester’s instructions.
1. Select the diagnostic ISO line required.
NOTE: The ISO-1 line is considered as the default line
(ref. Ch. 1.7.3.3 Tester-ISO Cable [TC8-3])
Figure 40 (ISO identification)

To use the 2 ISO line press ESC key and the following menu will
appear:
.
Figure 41 (ISO 1 / 2)
Having selected the ISO line, proceed with the following steps.
2. Insert the VSN (Vehicle Serial Number: Chassis Number or V.I.N.).
Inserting this number is useful for the diagnostics session but not
indispensable (press the ENTER key to avoid inserting any data):
inserting of this data is necessary to perform parameter
acquisition (the name of the acquisition file is given by this
information).
