AirPro’s Auto Diagnostics Tool: Fast, Reliable, and Accurate
A few decades ago, auto repair mechanics could simply conduct a visual inspection of a vehicle to determine the damages and then make appropriate recommendations. Even the most basic cars being manufactured today, come equipped with multiple computers.
Some are equipped with four to six times the amount of computer code as an F-35 jet pilot. Think about that for a minute, no wonder you are having so many challenges with these newer vehicles of all makes and models. Because of these complexities, auto repair shops need ready access to proven diagnostics tools and AirPro’s powerful technology which allows your shop to receive real-time diagnostics guidance from brand specialists with expertise in the specific vehicle’s make and model.
Consider this. Each vehicle manufacturer today has a proprietary computer network and driver assistance technology that’s uniquely complex. With more than forty manufacturers currently building hundreds of models, it quickly becomes apparent how challenging it can be for auto repair shops to keep up with this explosion in technology. We participate in OEM certification programs and help keep your shop in compliance by utilizing the OEM software to ensure the vehicle network is operating properly and Calibrations are performed to specifications.
That’s why AirPro Diagnostics creates a comprehensive solution that encompasses each of the four vital steps in the process:
AirPro Diagnostics can streamline and optimize each step of the process for vehicle repair shops across North America and the United Kingdom (UK). If you’d like to leverage the power of our diagnostic scanner or ask questions about our cutting-edge technology, please contact us online or call 904-717-1711.
Overall Look at Automotive Diagnosis
Each of these four key steps is intricately connected, and AirPro Diagnostics offers the most advanced solution available today. Powered by multi-brand OEM software and comprehensive diagnostic applications, AirPro’s technology is directly connected to the vehicle being diagnosed. (This “local” approach is now required by some vehicle manufacturers.) So, when the system is remotely operated by a team of expert brand-specialized diagnosticians, that’s a true difference-maker for repair shops like yours.
In fact, AirPro offers the only scanning and diagnostic service that’s “Local” or directly connected to the vehicle. —With the diagnostic software and hardware resident on the AirPro tool, this maximizes the accuracy and reliability of services and calibrations. Additionally, because our system is 100% touch-free, with our remote brand-specific technicians guiding you through each step, this minimizes the risk of contagious pathogens entering your facility. This is especially important nowadays.
Scanning and Diagnostics in Automotive Repair
As vehicle computers have become increasingly more sophisticated, auto diagnostics tools must, as well. So, repair shops must strategically select the most effective vehicle diagnostic systems that will dovetail with the years, makes, and models being repaired. Consistently following best practices, AirPro technicians scan, diagnose, calibrate, and reprogram vehicle computers to return them to original specifications.
At the start of the process, your staff will need to take a couple of steps:
- Thoroughly inspect the vehicle visually for damage, also verifying that malfunction indicator lamps are working / or illuminated.
- Document unusual odors and undesirable sounds.
- See if the airbags, bolsters, or seatbelts have been deployed during a crash.
Then, use AirPro Diagnostics technology to conduct a complete pre-repair scan. This will provide baseline information about the vehicle’s current condition. When using ORION by AirPro, the software stays in quick mode if no codes exist in the vehicle’s system.
Pre-Scan and Post-Scan Processes
We have the technicians, and brand experts so your shop doesn’t need to. A brand specialist in a box! We should not refer to shop technicians. This is where they are woefully short. Vehicles in a repair shop often won’t have fully operational computer systems because of damage occurring during accidents. In that case, AirPro’s system will cost-effectively guide you through the diagnostic process by providing fault codes and recommendations based on OEM procedures.
During the pre-scan, our technicians utilizing the software assess the vehicle’s condition, read live data, and diagnose problems. Scan results will typically identify most calibrations required and document results. This includes issues with object detection, OCS, park assist, steering angle, and more. If airbags are deployed, the electronic evaluation will provide your shop with information, including whether an airbag replacement is needed.
As diagnostics become more advanced, technicians reviewing results must have more in-depth, brand-specific knowledge about the vehicle’s functions and systems. Depending on the damage to the vehicle, your repair shop may need to request further diagnostics to fully identify electronics damages.
This benefits your shop by providing seamless access to our brand specialists who are factory-trained, ASE-certified technicians, experienced in diagnostic technologies to help you get the repair done right. More specifically, they will:
- Perform live vehicle, in-depth data analysis
- Test all PIDs and modules
- Go beyond deciphering diagnostic trouble codes (DTC), servicing the entire collision event
This allows you to give your customers a comprehensive upfront repair plan, which decreases cycle time, boosts customer satisfaction, and helps to build long-term loyalty. Plus, because of this technology and our technicians’ ongoing communications with your shops, this helps educate your team members and could also lead to increased employee job satisfaction.
Scanning and diagnostics processes intricately work together to help repair shops provide optimal repairs. Once repairs, calibrations, and computer reprogramming are completed on a vehicle, a post-scan allows your technicians to verify success. If all is fully resolved, then your shop can conduct a final quality control inspection with confidence.
