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
