Toronto, Ontario — Tesla technicians will now be getting an extra layer of coverage from Autel, as the global automotive diagnostics company announced a major update to its Ultra-series tablets, in addition to a new Tesla-compatible adapter.
Autel says that “Tesla update 2.0” will introduce Read and Erase Code capabilities for Model Y and Model 3 vehicles on the following systems: Compressor (CMP), Steering Column Control Module (SCCM), Electric Power Assisted Steering 1 (EPAS1 ) and 2 (EPAS2 ), Center Radar (RADC), Restraints Controller Module (RCM), Electric Stability Program (ESP), iBooster (IBST), Park Assist System (PARK).

With this software update comes a significant hardware launch from Autel as well, as the company unveils the new Tesla-compatible JX03-IAI-778 adapter (TESKIT3Y).
Autel says the CAN001 cable in its TESKIT, released earlier this year, must also be connected to the CAN port on Models 3 and Y.
The company released software updates and the TESKIT for Tesla S and X vehicles in July 2021. The TESKIT includes LAN001, CAN001, and CAN002 to diagnose pre-and post-2015 Tesla S and X models. How-to connect sheets are included with cable and adapter kits, according to the press release.
