The CAN-Mate SRT allows you to reset the Service Interval Indicator in your vehicle. This is a requirement on the Land Rover service check sheet that needs to be completed on every service, if your Warranty/Service History is to be kept current.
When you have finished servicing your vehicle, without the CAN-Mate SRT you will still have to go a Main Dealer or an independent specialist who has equipment like our Faultmate MSV-2 to have them reset the Service Interval Indicator for you. Of course, they will want some of your money that you have saved by doing your own service.
Alternately, you may be a person who prefers not to get their hands dirty but also doesn?t want to pay exorbitant Main Dealer prices. This is especially true when you have a small garage down the road that is more than capable of doing basic servicing, but doesn?t have access to full diagnostic equipment needed to reset the Service Interval Indicator. Therefore you can hand him your CAN-Mate SRT to allow him to complete your service to full Land Rover Specifications.
The CAN-Mate is a tool that is required for the following vehicles only:
- Discovery 3/LR3
- Range Rover Sport up to MY2009
- Range Rover L322 - up to MY2009 (Jaguar engine fitted only, not required for BMW)
To reset your service interval, select one the sixteen possible service intervals on the CAN-Mate SRT - a table is in the User Guide. Then simply plug it into the OBD Connector and it resets the Service Interval Indicator for you. No fuss, no palaver and more importantly, no garage fees just for two minutes work.
With intelligent use of a high intensity flashing LED, the CAN-Mate SRT will inform the user that the Service Interval reminder has been reset, or if there has been a communication error - in which case it will then also tell you the cause of that error.
When you use the CAN-Mate SRT for the first time on your vehicle, it will lock itself to your Vehicle?s VIN. This will actually help you in two ways. It is a theft deterrent as there is no point in stealing your CAN-Mate SRT.
