Latest AFIT Software Updates High-Pressure Fuel Pump Coverage

The latest software release for the Active Fuel Injector Tester, or AFIT, (CH-47976) is now available. The release (CH-47976-230) updates the fuel pressure regulator software used in the AFIT DMU (Drive & Measurement Unit) as well as updates the AFIT MCU (Main Control Unit). (Fig. 3)

While regular updates to accommodate new vehicles and hardware have been made to the MCU ever since the AFIT was introduced, this is the first update of the DMU. (Fig. 4) The AFIT was originally designed to be compatible with 10-ohm pressure regulators on direct injection fuel systems. The new DMU update addresses the AFIT’s regulator drive capabilities that are needed due to the use of high-pressure fuel pumps with 0.4-ohm pressure regulators, such as those found on 2018 Corvette, Camaro, CTS, Escalade, Silverado, and Sierra models equipped with a 6.2L V8 engine (RPO LT1, LT4, L86).

Making Connections

 

When testing an engine using the AFIT kit, do not connect the adapter cables to the vehicle until instructed to by the AFIT MCU. The MCU should be placed in the vehicle cab and plugged into the power adapter.

 

The DMU (Drive & Measurement Unit) should be placed in the engine compartment and connected to the vehicle’s 12-volt battery and to the MCU.

 

Select a vehicle on the AFIT MCU and then select an injector test. Follow the on-screen instructions/prompts on the MCU to connect to the vehicle. When prompted, with the ignition off, connect the DMU cable to the vehicle ECM harness connectors.

 

To help in determining which adapter to use, the AFIT will display the correct adapter during the testing process. The latest software must be used in order to display all correct adapter and cable selections.
