Fault code readers can be purchased very cheaply these days but the basic ones have their limitations.
For Land Rover owners wanting to read and reset fault codes, programme key fobs, bleed ABS systems, reset service lights, calibrate suspension and much more then something a bit more specialised is required. The Hawkeye diagnostic tool from Bearmach is an easy to use, self-contained tool that allows owners to do much more than your basic OBD reader.
The Hawkeye comes supplied with 1 unlock code that enables it to be used on one vehicle model range, for example Discovery 2, this means it will work on any Discovery 2 model. You can purchase extra unlock codes if you have more than one type of Land Rover.
The Hawkeye comes supplied with the standard interface cable and stores in a protective wallet, ideal to keep in the car just in case it is needed! The Hawkeye is simply plugged into the OBD port and is powered from the vehicle.
The backlit screen is easy to read and navigating through the menus is easy and intuitive using the arrow buttons. Simply select the menu and then choose the function required. The on screen prompts help you and further help is available by pressing the ‘?’ button.
Regular updates are free of charge and available from Bearmach as new functions are released for existing and newer models.
So if you have a modern Land Rover with an on-board ECU, a Hawkeye is an excellent addition to your toolbox and could save you many pounds on garage bills. For further information and pricing see the JGS4x4 website.
