I can communicate with all the modules read data and read/clear codes. But there are no codes
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 8 months ago.

We are not looking for codes. We're looking to test CAN bus. We need a DRB-III or equivalent scan tool that can communicate with the body control module (BCM) and command it to perform actuator tests such as lock and unlock the doors, etc. Then communicate with the electromechanic instrument cluster (EMIC) and command it to perform actuator tests such as gauge sweeps, etc. Can that snap on solus ultra do that? If so, can you perform at least one test per module and tell me if they were successful?
