    Does anyone know,

    Will HDS work with a Toyota / Lexus Mini VCI?

    Cheers

    Clue is in the name :-
    HDS = Honda Diagnostic System
    HIM = Honda Interface Module.

    I only wondered as in any advert they list Toyota and Honda together with the same cable... so they might use the same hardware? But the software only differ?

    Show us this advert please mate. The new Denso DST-i may do that in the future have a look at this Honda diagnostic Tools- New Version out Denso DST-i (In-Depth - )

    But HDS won't interact with Toyota's famous last words.

    I got my self a USB lead and HDS. Just need to install it to the car.
    I could not find the adevt anymore I thought I put it in my watched items on ebay, but it is not there.

    Will I be able to adjust the steering angle sensor after I do tracking on the car?
    I don't want the Lane Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control to get messed up.

    I would have gone to the local Honda in Canterbury, but most if not all they hadn't seen a Legend KB1 before (not very good in a way lol).
    So I am not very confident to leave the car with them. Also their service department waiting list is 25days before they can see the car?!!! lol

    My tracking is not out, I had it checked, but my steering needs to be very slight to the left to go straight.

    That's a tracking issue not a config issue.

    When you take your car for tracking, they first should fix the steering in a dead straight position and then do you're tracking.

    How did they determine the tracking is not out if they didn't lock the steering wheel ?

    I would take it elsewhere to have the tracking checked properly.

    They have fixed the position to the straight position and the tracking checked. However the Hunter machine will not talk to the Honda system and it advices to take to Honda to be reset after tracking is done.
    My Audi's etc other cars that needed the steering angle sensor reset previoustly the Hunter machine was doing them fine. But for the Honda for some reason it advices it needs to be taken to Dealer.

    Ok in that case, there must be some option in the HDS to do this. I've not ventured in to this sub system in HDS so I'm not sure what the options are.

    The only way to find out would be to connect your HDS up and have a snoop around, drill down to the Steering sub section and see what options you have in there.

    Never heard of this can you post your camber spec sheet here please. LKAS and ADAS has no adjustment for tracking I can look up the WSM to confirm this but I will surprised to see any adjustment for S-AWD either.

    We have not made any adjustments. The car was within tollerance as you can see in the picture hence we have not touched anything.
    However my steering wheel is a bit out, which needs adjusting, however since the Hunter machine it was indicating that cars fitted with ACC and LKAS needed to be plugged in after the adjustments were made for the steering angle sensor to be reset. I can only assume for the car to know where is straight.

    That makes no sense to me at all. You lock the steering straight when doing tracking, so if the tracking is all correct and the steering was locked straight, how then does it not be straight afterwards ?

    Thanks guys, I took the car for tracking, it was done once the steering was locked in place the right wheel was -0.05 and the left was 0.02, this is now adjusted and the steering is pointing straight.
    My only problem is I cannot setup the HDS I bought on my PC, and the seller is next to useless. Most annoying.

    The steering wheel SHOULD be locked straight ahead when setting the tracking, but it doesn't need to be... If you're lazy (or don't care) then it's easier to ignore the steering wheel position and simply make the necessary tracking adjustment on one side only.

    The steering wheel was locked then the adjustments were made. I always want my cars to have spot on steering, it really annoys me if it is not on correctly :Smile:
    - - - Updated - - -
    I have managed to setup the HDS on my computer, not the most straight forward piece of software lol :Smile: I did a whole scan to the car. Altough I had no lights on the dash and everything was working ok.
    Many DTC errors, regarding CMBS and LKAS, ABS/VSC most related the battery though.
    So cleared them all and will take the car for a spin.

    The conclusion and solution to the problems... at last. After the tracking had to do the reset to the steering angle sensor, my HDS version did not have that setting nowhere to be seen.
    Here is the solution on my other post.

    Have you checked all the tyres on your car is the thread even and round.. if you alignment was out prior the 4 wheel alignment it could have worn your tyres unevenly . Have you checked it with the palms of your hands?
