  WARNING

Risk of injury. Follow all warning messages and safety precautions. Refer to → Chapter "Warnings and Safety Precautions".

It is not necessary to disconnect or remove the Battery -A- when using the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-.

The following Batteries -A- can be tested using the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-:

  • 80 to 499 A cold crank amps according to German Industry Standardization DIN (Deutsche Industrie Norm). Refer to → Note.
  • 95 to 574 A cold cranking output according to IEC (International Engineering Consortium)
  • 136 to 855 A cold cranking output according to EN/ SAE (Europäische Norm/ Standard of Automotive Engineers)

1)  Batteries -A- with cold crank amps greater than 499 A according to DIN can be tested with the setting for 499 A according to DIN.

The Batteries -A- are tested by being loaded with current that corresponds to the starter current of a vehicle. Under this load, the Battery -A- is evaluated and the measured results are output through the printer.

  WARNING

Risk of injury. Follow all warning messages and safety precautions. Refer to → Chapter "Warnings and Safety Precautions".

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-

Always note the TPL 2012182.

Procedure

  WARNING

Do not check or charge a Battery -A- when the visual indicator has "no color or is bright yellow". Jump starting must not be used!

There is a risk of explosion during testing, charging or jump starting.

These Batteries -A- must be replaced.

  Note

The Battery -A- temperature must be at least 10 ºC (50 ºF).

  Caution

  • Turn off the ignition and all electrical equipment.
  • Remove the key.

- Check the visual indicator on Batteries -A- with visual indicator. Refer to → Chapter "Battery, Checking, Vehicles with Battery Monitoring Control Module J367 or Energy Management Control Module J644 and Data Bus On Board Diagnostic Interface J533".

- Switch on the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description".

- Determine the cold crank amps according to specifications on the Battery -A- in ampere (A) according to DIN and determine the Battery Tester With Printer -VAS5097A- adjustment range using the table. Refer to → Chapter "Cold Crank Amps Table".

  Note

If the Battery -A- does not state this value in DIN but rather in IEC or EN/SAE, then convert the value using the table (refer to → Chapter "Cold Crank Amps Table") or the table on the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-.

- Set the cold crank amps with the cold crank amps selector switch. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description".

- Set the measuring range (80 to 379 A or 380 to 499 A) using the ON/OFF switch. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description".

  Note

Batteries -A- with cold crank amps greater than 499 A according to DIN can be tested with the setting for 499 A according to DIN.

- Connect the red terminal (+) to the positive terminal of the Battery -A-.

- Connect the black terminal (-) to the negative terminal for the Battery -A-.

  Note

  • Make sure the test terminals make good contact!
  • Note TPL 2012182 for the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-.

- Using the sliding switch, select the test clamp connection point. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description".

N27-10201

1 - Direct connection to the Battery -A-

2 - Connection on the battery jump start terminal

- Check if the cold crank amps indicated on the Battery -A- matches the selected value on the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-.

- Press the Start-button. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description".

The green LED lights up. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description". The test program runs automatically. The test results are output through the printer. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Load Test Results". If the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- does not start, (the LED does not come on and there is no print out), then charge the Battery -A-. Refer to → Chapter "Battery, Charging".

- Switch off the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A-. Refer to → Chapter "Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- Device Description".

- Remove the test terminals.

  Note

  • The test is over after approximately 20 seconds.
  • The results of the test are output through the printer.
  • Only perform the test once. Repeating the test will not produce accurate results.
  • The Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- needs 30 minutes to cool off before it is ready for the next measurement.

Cold Crank Amps Table

Cold Crank Amps Table

1)  Batteries -A- with cold crank amps greater than 499 A according to DIN can be tested with the setting for 499 A according to DIN.

Battery Load Test Results

By placing the battery under a strong load during the Battery -A- load test, the battery voltage will be reduced.

  • If the Battery -A- is good, the voltage drops only to the specified minimum voltage.
  • If the Battery -A- is defective or weakly charged, the battery voltage will drop very quickly to below the specified minimum voltage.
  • After testing, this low voltage level is maintained for a lengthy period and only increases again slowly.
  • Only perform the test once. Repeating the test will not produce accurate results.
  • In order to be able to test another/additional Battery -A-, the Battery Tester with Printer -VAS5097A- must cool down for approximately 30 minutes for the test result to be correct.
