Meritor Wabco unveils new Toolbox 12 vehicle diagnostic package

by Truck News

TROY, Mich. –Meritor Wabco introduced the Toolbox 12 today – the latest version of its PC-based diagnostic software that expedites vehicle diagnosis, increases uptime and optimizes work for technicians.

“Vehicle uptime is a major industry focus, and Meritor Wabco is doing its part to improve fleet productivity by offering diagnostic tools that accommodate quick, accurate assessments and return vehicles to the road,” said Stephen Hampson, president and general manager for Meritor Wabco. “With the increasing complexity of safety and efficiency systems, as well as the introduction of our Aftermarket Programming Tool in early 2015, Toolbox is vital for service efficiency.”

The new package includes expanded diagnostic capabilities and support for anti-lock braking systems, electronic braking systems and hydraulic power brakes. It also includes OnGuardActive diagnostics, aftermarket electronic control unit (ECU) programming updates and an improved quick-start guide. The new program also works in conjunction with Meritor Wabco systems, including OnGuard collision mitigation, OnLane lane-departure warning, SmartTrac stability control for tractors and trailers as well as Wabco’s OptiRide electronically controlled air suspension.

The program’s basic functions include:

  • Static displays (ECU numbers) and dynamic displays (RPMs) for a system being tested
  • Displays for active and stored system faults as well as appropriate repair instructions
  • Activation of components to verify system integrity, correct component operation and installation wiring
  • Direct digital access to product maintenance manuals
  • Aftermarket ECU programming updates

The new software is now available for purchase and for a limited time Meritor Wabco is offering customers with a current Toolbox 11 licence a special $99 upgrade to Toolbox 12. New customers will pay the base price of $299 per licence with a discount for larger purchases.
