Snap-on Training Solutions helps you get the
most out of your SOLUS Ultra diagnostic tool. This training module covers the basic setup
and controls. Before operating or maintaining SOLUS Ultra,
read the safety instructions and user manual carefully paying extra attention to the safety
warnings and precautions. To install the battery pack, pull the folding
stand away from the back of the SOLUS Ultra. Loosen the two screws that retain the battery
compartment cover, then lift the bottom edge of the cover to open. The top of the cover
is hinged and will remain connected to the SOLUS Ultra.
Align the tabs on the sides of the battery compartment with the slots on the new battery,
then slide the battery to the right to lock into place.
Close the battery cover on the housing and snug up the screws to hold the cover in place.
Do not overtighten. Indicators and connectors are on the top panel.
The power indicator illuminates when power is being supplied to the tool.
The power supply port is used to connect the AC/DC power supply. Use only the correct AC
adapter provided with the SOLUS Ultra. The micro SD card port holds the micro SD
card that contains the SOLUS Ultra software. The USB Client Port is used to connect SOLUS
Ultra to a personal computer for transferring saved files.
And the data cable port is for the scanner vehicle connector.
To power up the SOLUS Ultra, press the power button. SOLUS Ultra automatically powers up
and opens to the home screen whenever it is connected to a vehicle or the AC power adapter.
SOLUS Ultra will boot up to the home screen in about 10 seconds. All operation of SOLUS
Ultra can be performed using the touch screen or the keys.
