Please make sure you have read and understood the instructions before using this product.

Using the TrailerCheck

On opening the case you should hear a bleep; this confirms the microprocessor has powered up and the unit is ready for use. Fully closing the lid will automatically switch the unit off.

Plug the 24N, 24S & ABS/EBS leads into the trailer sockets, drop down the protection flap to revel the main control panel. Press the black 24 N button to scroll down the various normal outputs, side lights, circuit 1 & 2 indicators etc. You will hear the ticking of the relays, this switches the lights on for two seconds and off for one, operating in this way extends the battery life.

Please note that the stop lights do not flash as this would confuse the ABS warning lamp check, do not leave the lights on for any longer than necessary as this will drain the batteries

Scroll down using the 24S (green Button) to power the Reverse, Fog and Secondary ABS power. Note if the green ABS warning light flashes the correct code for the ABS system is fitted to the trailer, there is also a reverse and side light position to test the silent mode of some reversing warning devices.

To activate automatic full test, press the green 24S button until the Fog Lights LED is lit, press it once more and all the control lights will illuminate, the processor will sequence through every circuit one after the other this will be indicated by the lights moving to the next position after each flash.

Press and hold both the green and black buttons for 3 seconds, this puts the tester into diagnostic mode, this will enable the selected circuit to be powered continuously.

Pressing the red button powers the ABS / EBS via the dedicated ISO7638 lead. The EBS CAN line test is automatic and results are displayed. The Yellow In Cab warning light will flash depending on the ABS / EBS system installed on the trailer.

To save power the tester will turn off after approx. 10 mins, except when in diagnostic mode and using ABS/EBS power.

A double bleep indicates low battery, and NOTE, the tester cannot be used while on charge!

Charging TrailerCheck

To recharge, close the lid to switch off and connect the mains charger into the TrailerCheck on the side of the case. Now plug into a mains supply and turn on. Or connect to a vehicle cigar lighter

TrailerCheck ABS & EBS Fault Diagnostic

ABS – If the ABS circuit is OK you should see the YELLOW light flash on for 2 seconds and then off for 2 seconds then on all the time (this is dependant on the trailer system). If the ABS circuit has a fault the YELLOW light will be on all the time. If testing a Wabco VCS system, this light will be on all the time. If you have a fault, check all ABS sensors and pole ring with the aide automotive ABS Sensor Tester.

EBS – When the TrailerCheck tests each CAN line you will see on the front panel a HI and LO LED, if the ISO circuit is faulty the fault LED will be lit in RED under the corresponding CAN HI or LO LED, if OK the GREEN LED will be lit.

Trailer Cables

TrailerCheck has 3 cables connected to the inner case, you can identify each cable by…

Cable with the clamp – This is the ISO ABS / EBS cable

Black cable with no white front face – This is the main lighting circuit cable

Black cable with a white face – This is the secondary cable

1000V Electrical Insulated Tool Kit for Electric EV Cars Vehicles

October 23rd, 2019 No comments

With the increasing number of hybrid and electric vehicles on the road, the demand from workshops for correctly insulated tools has grown significantly.

A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses two or more distinct power sources to move the vehicle for example a conventional internal combustion engine and also a high voltage electric motor. The term most commonly refers to hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which combine an internal combustion engine and one or more electric motors. However, other mechanisms to capture and use energy may also be included, such as diesel-electric trains which are powered by both diesel engine and electric motor and submarines that use diesel engines to power the rotors and also to charge batteries that power the craft when submerged.

So is your garage ready? Does your car / van MOT garage have the necessary tools to guard against the dangers of electrocution from hybrid-electric vehicles?

Mechanics should be cautious when working on hybrid vehicles because hybrid vehicles use a combination of a petrol motor and a high-voltage electric motor. The electric motor operates on voltages as high as 500 volts, that’s more than eight times the lethal voltage. Be ready for anything. Don’t be caught worrying about the “what ifs” while working on these vehicles.

aide automotive’s Hybrid Service & Test Tool Kit is ideal for servicing and general maintenance of Hybrid vehicles systems. Used by auto-technicians and HSE compliant to ensure safety. At present this is the only kit of it’s kind for auto-servicing professionals, the Hybrid Vehicle Service & Test Tool Kit is the natural choice for small and large garage operations. This is suitable for use on all Hybrid vehicles, when the term hybrid vehicle is used, it most often refers to a Hybrid electric vehicle. These encompass such vehicles as the Saturn Vue, Toyota Prius, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Ford Escape Hybrid, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Honda Insight, Honda Civic Hybrid, Lexus RX 400h and 450h and others.

aide automotive’s Hybrid Car Service & Test Tool Kit Contains:
CAT III 1000V Multimeter, Cables, Probes, Clips and Magnetic Hanging Strap.

HSE Approved Warning Sign

MOT Decelerometer Approved As Connectable Tester

October 15th, 2019 Comments off

Bowmonk BrakeCheck has been approved as a MTS CONNECTABLE DEVICE

BrakeCheck MOT Decelerometer is one of the first decelerometers to get the MTS Connectivity approval from the DVSA.

A big advantage of connected MOT equipment will be the time it saves MOT garages. Instead of a tester carrying out a test, noting down the result, then entering it manually, it will be recorded instantly.

The time saved per test won’t be massive – we think it should save you a couple of minutes per test – but when you do hundreds of tests a year, the savings will add up.

Using this equipment gives MOT garage more accurate results, direct onto the MTS System making it quicker for MOT testers and customers alike; both critical factors in our business success. Said Ian Wills, the authorised examiner designated manager (AEDM) for the site at Deptford where testing & research has taken place.

Bowmonk’s technical team have been working with the DVSA on connecting the decelerometer BrakeCheck directly to the MOT system in order to reduce errors and save time. In the long term, this will help to reduce or eliminate the number of incorrectly entered results, as well as stopping incorrectly entered vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and mileage.

Truck Fresnel Lens Blind Spot Mirror – Purchase Online
Purchase The Truck Fresnel Lens Via PayPal

That means the driver will assimilate any danger much faster and react far more quickly.

Due to a blind spot, drivers of trucks cannot see smaller vehicles or other vulnerable road users which are immediately next to the passenger side door of their HGV. These unseen road users can be hit if the truck changes lane in their direction.

London has become the first city in Britain to fine the drivers of HGVs not fitted with equipment to protect cyclists.
