Snap-on Announces New Collision Tools
Sept. 22, 2017 — Snap-on’s diagnostic scan tools perform full system code scans mandated by manufacturers for pre and post-collision work.
Standard and new driver assistance systems can be damaged by collision. The current and new software upgrades ensure a thorough diagnosis.
“Our Snap-on diagnostic platforms offer the most comprehensive coverage in the industry, with coverage for 49 original manufacturer makes and the ability to diagnose more than 100 vehicle systems — any of which can be damaged by collision,” says Leian Wunderlich, software program manager for Snap-on Diagnostics. “While Collision repair is not covered by a manufacturer’s warranty, regardless of age, many insurance companies pay shops to perform scans, as required by vehicle manufacturer. Snap-on provides the most comprehensive and latest technology for older and newer models, delivering new opportunities for business growth.”
The Software Upgrade 17.2 includes:
Seat Weight Sensor: ensures there are no issues post repair and recalibrates the passenger seat weight sensor
Forward collision warning/lane departure warning
Adaptive cruise control: this radar system is more likely to be the first sensor damaged in a collision
The new upgrade 17.4 (available October 2017) includes:
Chrysler pedestrian protection, light rain sensor module and active noise cancellation
Hyundai and Kia lane departure warning system, park assist system and surround view camera system
Mazda headlamp leveling, adaptive front lighting and lighting control modules
