During a press conference Wednesday at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACV) in Atlanta, Mitchell 1 announced enhancements to its RepairConnect diagnostic truck repair software for all-makes and models of Class 4-8 trucks.
In addition to engine diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), users may now access ABS and transmission DTC diagnostic and repair information in a single location through TruckSeries, Mitchell 1’s repair information software suite for commercial vehicles.
“Every feature in RepairConnect has been developed with the goal of increasing technician productivity, helping ensure that repairs are completed correctly the first time, to ultimately reduce vehicle downtime,” says Scott DeGiorgio, general manager at Mitchell 1. “The addition of ABS and transmission codes in RepairConnect gives truck repair shops immediate access to comprehensive service information and eliminates the ‘replace and pray’ scenario that can result in a comeback for the same problem.”
RepairConnect is fully integrated with all major scan tools and supports medium-, heavy-duty and school bus SAE protocols. Mitchell 1 says the system provides the ability to access accurate diagnostic repair procedures in seconds whenever a Class 4-8 truck vehicle requires service.
RepairConnect eases the complexity inherent in commercial vehicle systems by delivering clear and specific information, including component location photos, color wiring diagrams, and testing steps and procedures, in 30 seconds or less, to help technicians work more efficiently and accurately, the company says.
