October 12th, 2019 No comments

With the growing need for fault finding the modern way, Code Talk Trailer Diagnostics is becoming more and more of interest to the commercial vehicle trade.

Cooks Commercials, based in Taunton consulted aide automotive of the available tools to determine faults on trailers, reviewing TrailerCheck, The EBS ABS Sensor Master & Code Talk it became obvious the full trailer diagnostic system Code Talk was the correct tool.

Code Talk is a world-renowned Diagnostics Handheld Fault Code Reader for all Trailer Manufacturers including WABCO, HALDEX, KNORR-BREMSE and specifically their trailer ABS/EBS Brake systems. This product is used by being plugged into the braking ECU and will read out and clear any fault codes that the trailer may have. The Code Talk can also show live air pressures, wheel speeds, and system voltages which also helps with the diagnostics on the trailer. It can also act as a remote to our VTC allowing you to work from inside an HGV Service Van.

With NO annual software fee with Code Talk, this trailer diagnostics tool is by far the best on the UK market. Up gradable for future proofing, the Code Talk will outlast and beat any Texa or JalTest system.

Truck EBS Brake Tester

July 31st, 2019 No comments

This Is The ISOCheck EBS Plus Tool.

Designed By Our In House Tech Team The ISOCheck Tool Will Test The ISO7638 Socket On The Rear Of A Tractor Unit.

Trucks first used on the road on or after 1 May 2002 must be fitted with ISO 7638 connections. If a truck is fitted with an Electronic Braking System (EBS) and is towing a trailer fitted with EBS then a 7 core cable must be used. Trucks & Trailers with a defective EBS system (especially double decker trailers) would vastly increase the chances of roll over or jack-knife.

The simple & quick procedure of attaching the tester to the ISO7638 Truck Susie Socket and turning on the ignition will confirm Green for Good Or Red for Fault! So when the truck is returned to the road all information from the trucks ISO7638 can be trusted & proven.

Also, if the RED light indicates a fault, ISOCheck EBS-Plus will indicate which pin is at fault. Once the initial power test is complete with a RED fault light, ISOCheck will then go into diagnostic mode and flash a 1 to 7 count sequence in relation to the faulty pin.

ISOCheck EBS will test all electronic braking systems, Wabco, Knorr Bremse and Haldex, covering the differences between the early generations and the latest.

So for truck manufacturer workshops to large haulage fleets to small independent commercial repairers, ISOCheck Is An Ideal Tool!

Truck ISO ABS / EBS Susie – What Is It?

November 29th, 2017 Comments off

Faulty ISO7638 Line Can Cause Fatal Accidents

Some drivers aren’t aware of the role Of the ISO ABS / EBS Susie!

aide automotive have seen recent reports in the media of articualted truck drivers knwloedge of the ISO 7638 Susie.
We offer credit to the below article to Don Bur Ltd.
There is disturbing evidence to suggest that some drivers aren’t aware of the role and critical importance of the ABS ISO7638 line for articulated trailerswhilst in transit or, more worryingly, are deliberately leaving it disconnected.
The use of the ABS ISO7638 line (otherwise known as the EBS/ABS line) became law in May 2002 where the tractor and trailer are both provided with connections.
The EBS/ABS ‘Suzie’ connection provides electrical and data feeds to the trailer’s ECU or ‘brain’. The ECU then controls the anti-lock braking system (ABS), load sensing (LSV), roll stability (RSS) and suspension control which regulates the correct trailer ride height and, in turn, the overall trailer height.
So why then might a driver leave it disconnected? There are, surprisingly, a couple of reasons. Firstly, the roll stability system (RSS) automatically applies the brakes if the trailer is going too fast round a bend. This has an impact on both speed and fuel economy and, if a driver is either in a rush or targeted against fuel consumption, they might be tempted to disable this ‘inconvenient’ feature.
The other apathetically induced reason is that it just “doesn’t seem to do anything”. Indeed, when the driver pulls away, his/her brakes and lights will appear to work. What the driver may not understand is that they are more likely to experience jack-knifing, aquaplaning, brake lock, rollover, bridge strike and, more commonly, the fact that the 44T rig just won’t be able to stop as quickly when trying to avoid that pram that’s just peeked out from a line of parked cars.
So, just in case there is any lingering doubt, failure to connect the ABS ISO7638 line correctly results in the risk of catastrophic, life-threatening accidents. If the driver fails to use the line/ ‘Suzie’ correctly and there is a collision in which someone is killed, then the driver can face a charge of manslaughter.
aide automotive market a ISO7638 cable with fault indicator, so as well as having the cable correctly connected a driver can also be notified of any faults within the system. Again an electrical fault could have the same catastrophic effects as the ISO Susie cable being non connected.
ISOCheck lights bright RED when a fault is identified, if good to go the ISOCheck is continually lit bright GREEN.

Electronic Brake System (EBS) Trailer Testing With ISOCheck

What Is The ISO EBS Truck & Trailer Lead

How does the EBS truck & trailer Susie lead work?
Everyone seems to have there own ideas how it works, ranging from; “if it’s not plugged in your trailer brakes wont work”, & “it’s only a back up power anyway”
Both are incorrect!
The truth is…
The Electronic Braking System (EBS) Susie or the ISO 7638 (its correct name) is essential for the trailers Electronic Braking System (EBS) to operate correctly.
So, if a truck has an ISO7638 socket a tractor and trailer must be connected with an ISO7638 Susie and the EBS must be working correctly!
Also this means the EBS warning light the truck operator should be checking is in the cab and not the one on the trailer headboard (if there is one).
This is where the problems start, how does the EBS lead actually work, well this is how:
Pin 1 in most trucks is permanent live
Pin 2 is switched ignition live
Pin 3 is common return to battery negative
Pin 4 is common return to battery negative
Pin 5 is the warning light control (positive)
Pin 6 is “CAN” High
pIn 7 is “CAN” Low
Pin 5 which is the warning light control wire, this pin seems to be continually misunderstood. Some people think pin 5 is controlled by the trucks EBS system or even by the truck itself, both of these are incorrect, how it works is quite simple, a basic explanation is detailed below:
Power from the truck battery routes to a fuse, then to the ignition switch and then to the warning light in the dash board, finally then to pin 5 in the socket.
When an EBS Susie ISO7638 lead is connected to the trailer the trailer EBS system sees 24 volts down pin 5, which and then reduces that voltage inside the trailer ECU to below 5 volts (earth) which then activates the EBS light on in the truck cab.
Once a truck & trailer is in motion and the the trailer EBS system is happy with the wheel speed signals, the ecu then raises the voltage back up to 24 volts and the warning light in the cab goes out, if a fault appears when a truck & trailer is on the road, the ecu lowers the voltage again activating the In Cab Warning Light.(Please Note This Is a Basic Description).

aide automotive launches improved ISOCheck

EBS ISOCheck Now Available In Addition To the ABS ISOCheck – Review Products Details & Buy Online

Commercial Vehicle Equipment Supplier aide automotive Has Launched An Updated Version Of The ISOCheck

ISOCheck tests a trucks’ ISO sockets in order to help identify ABS or EBS faults.

 

The latest iteration of the system – ISOCheck EBS – has been designed to test electronic braking systems incorporating a CAN line test.

“Trucks that were first used on or after 1 May 2002 must be fitted with A ISO 7638 connection,”

“If a truck is fitted with an Electronic Brake System, and is also towing a trailer that is fitted with EBS, then a 7-core cable must be used.

Like the ISOCheck ABS tester, ISOCheck EBS tests the ISO Socket 7638 pins 1 to 5, but also tests pins 6 and 7, the EBS CAN lines.

Alongside the standard ABS & EBS ISOChecks we can also offer a diagnostic EBS ISOCheck.

ISOCheck EBSPlus test pins 1 to 7, and identifies the exact pin at fault.

Once the initial power test is complete with a RED fault light, the ISOCheck will then go into diagnostic mode and flash a count sequence in relation to the faulty pin,

The ISOCheck product range has benefited from a complete redesign, incorporating the latest electronics technology which enables future proofing truck and trailer brake systems.

ISOCheck can be used to test all Wabco, Knorr-Bremse and Haldex systems, from the early generations to the latest.

Testing is simple and easy,

ISOCheck can be used in many ways: fault-finding by the roadside or as an inspection sheet test within a workshop.

ISOCheck really becomes the perfect test tool on a dark wet night. The quick test and the bright (GREEN) OK / (RED) FAULT indicator increases test and repair efficiency.

The system can also be used continuously between a unit and trailer as a constant visual aide.

ISOCheck Re Launch & New User Guide

The ISO tester is an advanced circuit tester, it tests a trucks ISO 7638 socket, trailer susie and ABS/EBS functions.
With the launch now well under way, we can detail here the latest user guide.
When using the ISOCheck on a tractor and trailer, please make sure all health & Safety procedures are in place.
The ISOCheck is a test product & a diagnostic tool, the test lead will quickly identify where the fault is .i.e. on a tractor unit, a trailer or the existing Susie lead.
Testing a Tractor Unit
Firstly make sure the ignition is off in the tractor unit, remove the existing Susie lead that is fitted into the ISO socket.
Apply the ISOCheck to the ISO7638 socket on the tractor unit, fit the end with the clear Perspex modification, for future reference this is called “the ISOIndicator”.
Turn on the ignition, with all voltages and earths correct and also the ABS warning light “off” the ISOIndicator will light up GREEN.
If any of the voltages, earths or the warning light circuit is faulty, then the ISOIndicator will light up RED (or warning light on), this indicates a fault with the tractor unit, with the EBSPlus version the lead will now go into diagnostic mode and flash a count sequence in relation to the pin that is at fault. i.e. 5 flashes indicates PIN 5 “the warning light control wire”.
If the ISOCheck Truck Test resulted in Green and to confirm the trailer has a fault, not follow the trailer test procedure.
Testing the Trailer
Turn the truck ignition off.
Plug the ISOCheck Indicator into the trailer, turn on the ignition. The trailer warning light should activate on the truck dash board and the ISOCheck will light up RED.
The warning light should go out after 2 seconds and the ISOCheck will go GREEN, this means the trailers braking system is working at standstill.
If the warning light stays on, then drive the tractor and trailer above 10KPH, the warning light should go out and the ISOCheck will go GREEN. This proves the braking system is working correctly.
If all is working correctly and there is still an ABS fault light, this would mean the existing Susie lead is probably faulty. If the tester stays RED after a drive, stop the unit and trailer and remove the ISOCheck from the trailer. If the tester stays RED there is a power supply fault from the tractor unit or warning light fault, if the ISOCheck Indicator goes GREEN then there is a fault in the trailer system.
