I had been looking for a bi-directional scan tool since long and been saving up for it. Finally the much awaited tool arrived yesterday. And I thought of sharing it with fellow members along with posting the first tool application.
The Steermatic battery had completely drained in the past couple of days and the ECU forgot about the CVT start clutch calibration. Sadly this happens everytime if the battery is disconnected or it completely discharges.
So instead of the old "drive upto 60 and decelerate method" suggested in ESM, I thought of putting the tool to some use.
But before I proceed, I must thank the one person who made it possible for me to decide. Without his input, I would have ended up with a wrong choice or some chinese clone.
The one and only, our teacher, our automotive mentor, our guru and our respectful elder brother @xulfiqar bhai.
Thanks alot Xulfiqar bhai.
Okay here we go

Now the Calibration Procedure.
Question: So whats my point:
The point is: when your CVT starts giving poor idle in D (excessive vibarations), and idles itself all fine in N, you would want to calibrate you r transmission start clutch. Most Honda dealerships and some "gheroo-program" mechanics advise throttle body service, engine/tranny mounting replacements, valve body replacements and what not.
However, its just a couple of steps in procedure to get it back on road hassle free.
Happy CVT driving. Cheers
