Troubleshooting Fault Codes Pt III

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone - I received the new VAG/KKL USB connector that "TMod" recommended.  Ordered from Amazon.  $10.  Also downloaded the free HUD ECU Hacker program.  Connected everything up using the adapter plug I previously made for $20 (sources posted in first fault code troubleshooting post) and ran the software.  I am thoroughly amazed at the results.  The stuff actually works!  Better than expected I might add.  I was able to see more data and info about the Buck than I ever thought possible.  The fact that I can see what is happening while it is running is a very significant tool to have and very important to me when troubleshooting.  An OBD reader can't hold water to the amount of data you will get using this procedure. 

I've uploaded four videos of my experience to a YouTube page where they can be seen.  I tried to upload them to the forum but could not get them to play correctly.  Hope this info helps some of you if you're riding the fence about trying it.  I still have a lot of analysis to do on my results.  I ran a log file and trace to see the parameters of the sensor outputs.  There is a ton of data to sift through.  But I am very impressed at what this software can do for the Buck.  To me it was incredibly worth the $10 for the USB cable and the $20 for the OBD connector and adapter plug.  Best $30 I've spent in a long time.  

Here is the link.  Hopefully I figured out how to make them public.  Let me know if it doesn't work.  They are in order 1-4. 


- JT

You can install the drivers from the program itself as it has a install drivers button at the top of the screen and they are drivers meant to be used with that cable, Seems you lucked out but some won't so best to install the drivers from the HUD ECU Hacker program.

      2007 Mule 610,  owned for 8 yrs and valves were ticking when I got it and had them adjusted twice and this is when plugs began to foul.  I replaced battery (used battery I had on hand) a yr ago and didn't foul a plug for some time and replaced batter (new) with a bigger lawn mower type battery again a month ago and have fouled two plug since.  Had carb cleaned and valves adjusted and still fouls plugs way to often.  Friend has a mule just like mine and his does same thing. Have read this is a common problem with 610 mule.  Any help or suggestions would be welcomed.  Thanks and stay healthy.

      I have the factory service manual available for the Buck 400. Just send me a message with your email and I'll get it to you. Although there is no charge for this, it would be great if  you would visit my website where you could donate any amount to help do things like this with others who need it. Again, there is no charge for this manual, and no obligation to donate. But if you did, I would thank you for sure. Have fun on the trails. www.warriorsoffroad.com

      Hey. I recently got a used Polaris Ranger 570, and I’ve noticed if I let off the gas going down a hill, after about 5-10 seconds, it kicks out of gear or free wheels. Is this normal? It’s kind of annoying imo, since you have to hold your brake so much more. Also, is it bad to leave it in 2wd Diff Lock? I have turf mode, but like to keep it in diff lock because I climb some pretty steep hills frequently. Is it bad to engage/disengage diff lock/4wd while moving or in a pull? Thanks

      I was thinking of using one of my old head lights as a bed light for The mule, if we're loading fire wood in the dark etc we can see.
      There is a open electrical accessory connector I can plug to and run the wires alongside the roll cage, and mount a separate switch,
      I can just cut the old connectors and crimp on new ones, but does anyone know the name of the type connector this uses, all I can find are the square crimp connectors.

      Hello hisun owners! I love my utv.
      but as well other utv types mine needs some help from time to time.
      the voltage regulator fried  a pin hole on the plug it goes into. There are 6 pins on voltage regular so I am trying to find the plug that it connects to. No luck online.  Called Coleman company and waiting for help to replace plug. 
      Anyone have a clue where I can buy a new plug?  I use my utv for several projects and need this fixed fast! 
      Thank you for any helpful replies.
