Introducing The QST Quick Service Tool Specialist Tool Range

As vehicle technology increases, so does the complexity of the repair process. Increasingly, there are more vehicles that require a scan tool to do even the simplest of repairs. The Quick Service Tool line of tools from Bartec is designed to offer powerful yet affordable tool solutions for services like Oil Changes, Brake Pad Replacement, DPF Resetting, Steering Angle calibration, fault code detecting, and Battery Replacement. Bartec USA have developed a new range of specialist aftermarket automotive tools to suit a range of applications

QST300

QST300

The QST300 is the first tool of its kind that combines more than one function in to a single tool. The QST300 ships with that ability to service Battery Management Systems, Electronic Parking Brakes, and Oil Light Reset. The QST300 is flexible and additional add-on applications can be purchased. Add-on applications now available for the QST300 are: DTC Reading Steering Angle Reset, and Diesel Particulate Filter Resetting. Simply purchase the desired add-on, log in to the QST Suite, and enter the license number when prompted.

QST250

QST250

The QST250 has been designed to give a visual indication of the output signals of parking sensors using ultrasonic sensors on a range of vehicles. The QST250 with its extended pick lead allows a single person to operate the vehicle safely and test the sensors while in the driver's seat. This makes the QST250 both a time saving product, but also ensures the system can be tested safely and easily by the service technician.

QST200

QST200

The QST200 completes the battery relearn step in mere seconds. On average the total time required by the technician to reset a system will be 30 seconds. The QST200 covers all makes and models with a simple make, model, year selection process. The QST200 gives the operator access to the necessary functions that were previously only available on complicated and clunky scan tools.

QST150

QST150

The QST150 turning out oil service lights is no longer always a simple task using the buttons on the indicator stalk or dashboard. Many new systems require a scan tool to reset specific service items and various counters that are used to indicate condition of oil, spark plugs, and many other service parts.

QST100

QST100

Modern braking systems that require electronic scan tool control for service are fast becoming the norm. The QST100 can easily guide the technician through the processes to ensure safe removal, refitting, and calibration of brake pads and calipers. Using the QST100 makes it possible to complete very simple tasks in just seconds.

Bartec USA, the North American leader in TPMS Diagnostic tools and solutions, announces their latest update to the TPMS Desktop, version 4.0! Desktop 4.0 includes the brand new feature REMOTE TOOL SETUP. Using the newly released Tech200Pro Tire inspection tool, the front counterperson can remotely preconfigure the Tech200Pro tool with the proper MAKE, MODEL and YEAR settings as the customer’s information is entered. This saves the extra step of having to set up the tool and makes the vehicle inspection process more efficient and accurate.

Bartec USA Announces TPMS Desktop 4.0

TPMS Desktop 4.0 also features a brand new, consumer friendly audit report. According to Bartec Product Manager Michael Rose, “This new report will make communicating tire and TPMS information to your customers more effective, help keep their vehicles operating safely and even help sell more tires!” Bartec’s newly developed audit report features all the critical information a consumer needs in order to make a proper decision. The counter person can easily walk through remaining tread life, tread wear, tire pressure and the state of their TPMS Sensors, all in a single document!

TPMS Desktop 4.0 also allows the linking of service reports. In a typical scenario, the Tech200Pro is the front shop inspection tool designed to gather the information from a parking lot inspection.

The information from these two devices can now be seamlessly linked together into a single customer report using the Desktop 4.0.

Revive uses proven patented technology that was developed for cleaning aeroplane jet engines, power station turbines, large marine engines and now vehicle engines. It is a surfactant, which combines with the air to remove the surface layers of soot/carbon which build up in an engine over time. This soot/carbon gets attached to the vanes of the turbo and all of the moving parts of the system through which the combustion gases flow and is removed as small particles which will not damage the engine.
