This paper deals with the strategy for development of an automotive scanner software for educational application, supplying the gaps created by the shortcomings of automotive electronics embedded systems diagnosis scanners market with respect to use in the classroom. The application of electronic diagnostic devices has become essential in view of the rapid development and growth of electronic embedded systems in automobiles, combined with increasing specialization necessary for professionals working in the maintenance segment and automotive repair. Using a low cost cable interface controller and application protocols established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), a Java PC application was developed. It allows the teacher to perform fault simulations without the need to modify parts or systems in the vehicle that is being used in class, ensuring greater productivity and safety in their classes.
