Identify Parking Sensor Faults on 2013 Mercedes C 220 by XTOOL A80 Pro

We have got a 2013 Mercedes Benz C 220 from one customer. There is something wrong with the rear parking sensors, it cannot work. So we decide to use the XTool A80 Pro to identify the issue.

Why choose XTOOL A80 Pro?

It’s a very good top line diagnostic scan tool. A lot of functions are on it, and covers a really good range of vehicles, also has key programming function. So all around as a device excellent value!


Note: Since we don’t have the new A80 Pro on hand, we test with the XTool H6 Pro. A80 Pro also has the same function. The main difference between them is the hardware configuration.


Here we go:

Connect Xtool VCI with A80 Pro diagnostic tool, and connect VCI to the vehicle via the main cable

Put the ignition on (because as a general rule, when you scan the vehicle, it normally wants the ignition to be on)

Go to operate on A80 Pro tablet
