Safety

1.Safety
1.1. Symbols The following notes are marked with different symbols. 1.3. Proper and intended usage The minidiag2 diagnostics device is solely intended for the contractually defined application purpose. Any other use, or one in addition to this, is not deemed to be proper and intended usage. DaimlerChrysler cannot be held responsible for any consequential damage resulting from such action. The previous minidiag2 operating instructions are to be adhered to. 1.4. Personnel requirements Parameter settings may only be performed by relevantly trained or DaimlerChrysler trained personnel as well as skilled personnel in DaimlerChrysler authorized workshops. 1.5. Conversions and modifications to minidiag2 Arbitrary modifications to minidiag2 may compromise the functionality and safety of the device. DaimlerChrysler cannot be held responsible for any damage resulting from such action. 1.6. Organizational measures The operating instructions should be handed over along with the minidiag2 diagnostic device to the personnel assigned to operate it and should be kept close at hand. The operating instructions are to be augmented by the generally valid, country-specific, statutory and miscellaneous regulations pertaining to accident prevention and environmental protection.

Risk of injury! This symbol is used for all safety notes, which if ignored may result in immediate danger of injury or death.

This symbol is used for all safety notes, which if ignored result primarily in a risk of material and functional damage.

All notes which serve to ease both understanding and working with the minidiag2 are highlighted in blue.

1.2. General

Danger of accident and death! The minidiag2 diagnostics device can be used to influence safety-relevant configurations on the engine and vehicle (e. g. accelerator pedal analysis, control for engine brake etc.). Improper editing of parameters may significantly affect the characteristics of the engine or vehicle. This in turn may cause damage to people and property.

2. General
1.7. Mercedes-Benz OEM parts Mercedes-Benz OEM Parts are subject to the most stringent of quality inspections and serve to guarantee the best possible functionality, safety and value retention. Each component is specifically designed, manufactured, selected and approved for DaimlerChrysler. For this reason, we cannot accept any responsibility for consequential damage as a result of using parts and accessories which do not comply with such requirements. In Germany and in several other countries specific components such as, for example, safety parts are only approved for installation and conversion when they correspond with valid statutory regulations. This precondition is always fulfilled by Mercedes-Benz OEM parts. In those instances where other parts are used that have not been tested and approved by DaimlerChrysler this may even where in individual cases an inspection or authorization exists lead to an inability to assess or guarantee such parts in spite of current market monitoring. Warranty claims may therefore be unilaterally restricted by DaimlerChrysler. 1.8. Operating conditions Observe the following list of operating conditions in order to avoid any damage to the device and components. The device may not be stored or operated in locations that exhibit a high degree of exposure to dust or high air humidity. Storage temperature may not be in excess of 80 C.

3. Connection
3.1. Connection to diagnostic socket

The operating temperature range lies between 0 C and 50 C. Deviating temperatures may compromise the functionality of the electronic components. The device is to be kept dry. If fluid penetrates the inside of the device, the electronic circuits will be corroded this can then lead to a malfunctioning of the device. The device may not be opened. The warranty is rendered null and void if the device is opened. Improper treatment may result in damage occurring. Do not drop, push or hit the device. Such action could break the sensitive PCBs within the device. This could cause the device to malfunction. Do not use aggressive chemicals, solutions or powerful cleaning agents to clean the minidiag2. Use a soft cloth dampened with a mild soap solution only to wipe down the device. The device is designed as a diagnostic unit and is not intended for continuous operation. Warranty claims will not be accepted for any faults which are the consequence of improper operation, faulty or negligent treatment or handling.

The minidiag2 diagnostics device enables the following operations to be performed on Mercedes-Benz ecu: programming of accelerator pedal (see page 16), parameter setting (see page 18), reading out actual values (see page 26), reading out/deleting fault code memory (see page 30). All ECUs are subject to constant advanced development. Please appreciate that for this reason we reserve the right to make alterations. Therefore, all details, illustrations and specifications contained in these operating instructions cannot be called on to press claims.

The ignition must be switched off when connecting!

Use an appropriate cable (see illustration).

4.7. Programming accelerator pedal


Accelerator pedal contacts (idle throttle, full throttle) are not assigned any constant signal values. For this reason, it is necessary to perform a onetime programming of the accelerator pedal on the vehicle ecu. This procedure enters the accelerator pedal contacts in the ecus permanent memory. When an accelerator pedal or ecu is exchanged the programming routine has to be repeated. The accelerator pedal must be in the idle position Run ecu search routine (see page 13) Cursor on vehicle ecu (e. g. ADM or FMR)
