K-Suite 2.40

K-Suite 2.40. New protocols for K-TAG

In this month, we have worked to try to meet the demands that we keep on getting through many channels, and this update is a concrete answer to those specific needs.
We know that the list is still long, but we are working every day to fill gaps, answer to today’s demands and meet those that are going to be in the future: with the upcoming updates we will prove it again.

In this update, we wish to point out in particular the SID208 protocol.
To give you the opportunity to work on Citroen and Peugeot vehicles equipped with Continental SID208 ECU and micro TC1796, we introduced a new communication mode for K-TAG: in addition to the Boot connection via the micro, we also introduce Boot communication through the OBD connector. The tool will automatically recognize the connection mode and guide you through read and write operations. Either in OBD or on the bench.

Update your tools and start working right away.

2015 Suzuki Jimny 1.3L 16V VVT 85PS

Today's study is a focus on Suzuki Jimny, which mounts a 1.3L 16V VVT engine with 85PS and ECU DENSO 076JX.

Jimny was born in Japan, in 1970: it was called LJ10 and had an air-cooled 2-stroke twin engine; it was launched in Italy in the beginning of the 80’s with the name LJ10 (also known as SJ20) and four 800 cc cylinders (four strokes).

The “suzukino” (small Suzuki), as it was called in Italy due to its small dimensions (just exceeding three meters in length), was built on a side-member chassis suitable for off-road driving: in addition to the four driving wheels, the car was originally provided with a reliable leaf spring suspension system, low range gearbox and 16-inch wheels.
