Modern diagnostic systems make it possible to perform all-round diagnostics on the vehicle and not just focus on wear parts.
Computer on wheels
Commercial vehicles are now highly complex computers on wheels: They are home to numerous computer systems and control units that are networked in ever more complex ways This is made necessary by the many assistance and comfort functions that are almost indispensable in modern buses. As complexity grows, so does the need for all-encompassing diagnostics on the vehicle. After all, even the simplest jobs cannot be done without a diagnostic system these days, for example:
● changing oil or coolant
● resetting the service indicator
● basic settings of clutches or brake lining wear indicator
● commissioning of exchanged control devices
The multitude of different brands, systems and manufacturers presents a challenge. Particularly in workshops where many commercial vehicles have to be serviced and maintained, it means a great deal of effort if the diagnosis has to be carried out each time by a third-party provider. So in addition to the cost of the diagnostic work alone, there are others, such as:
● Operating costs for arrival and departure
● Wage costs for the employees deployed and their simultaneous absence from their own company
● Waiting time on site
● Long idle times of own vehicle
With a professional diagnosis in your own workshop, sources of error can be identified directly during the first workshop visit, so you can take the right measures immediately. The effect: Repairs are handled much faster, costs are reduced
