  Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

ADAS IS HERE. ARE YOU READY?

ADAS Front CameraWhat is ADAS?
Commonly referred to as drivers’ aids or safety systems, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) create a better driving experience by helping drivers navigate challenges as well as protect them and others from harmful actions and collisions. These systems include, but are not limited to, lane departure warning, collision warning, adaptive cruise control, adaptive light control, automatic braking, automatic parking and blind spot detection.

Both collision and general repair shops perform common jobs, from windshield replacement, body work, wheel alignments to everyday component failure and replacement, relatedly a shop needs to recalibrate these systems to get the vehicle back on the road safely.

PTEN gave its Innovation Award to Snap-on for its extensive ADAS coverage and recalibration capabilities. ADAS coverage is included in your diagnostic software from the day you purchase the tool. It covers all recalibration types and allows you to show your work and worth with valuable Pre-/Post-scan and Recalibration reports that you can share with customers.  

Refer to the vehicle coverage guide for detailed ADAS coverage information.

  Secure Vehicle Gateway for FCA

Secure Vehicle Gateway for FCASecure Vehicle Gateway

Automobile manufacturers are developing solutions to protect their vehicles’ networks from unauthorized access, including potential cyber-attacks. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) recently implemented a secure gateway module that was introduced on a selection of their 2018 and newer model vehicles. For those vehicles with the secure gateway module, access to certain diagnostic functions requires registration and authentication through an approved device for all aftermarket scan tools.

How It Works

The Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway™ solution provides direct access to secure OEM vehicle gateway modules. Snap-on and FCA worked closely to develop a solution that uses FCA’s Aftermarket Scan Tool User Management and Tool Registration system known as AUTOAUTH to allow Wi-Fi enabled diagnostics platforms using current software to perform secure gateway functions.

All FCA secure gateway compliant solutions require device and user registration through AUTOAUTH. The Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway™ is designed to help navigate through this new process.

A Solution Now and Into the Future

As additional OEMs implement similar network protection technology, the Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway will help you manage multiple OEM accounts for direct from the tool vehicle network access.

  On-Tool Vehicle System Reports

Pre-scan and Post-scan Reports

Why should I run a complete system code scan (Pre/Post-scan)

Performing a full vehicle code scan ensures peace of mind for you and your customers. Many systems do not turn on a light or put a message on the Diagnostic Information Center of the vehicle so this process can help uncover unseen issues!

A good practice would be to do a pre-scan before any work is done, to make the customer aware of any and all issues, then a post-scan after work is complete to confirm the repairs were completed properly. Pre- and post-scan is mandated by the manufacturers for pre- and post-collision work as well as by some insurance companies.

What is included in a Snap-on code scan?

It analyzes all available systems for the vehicle plus Global OBD-II codes and Readiness Monitors for a more complete view of vehicle systems. The system reports give an advanced insight into the state of the vehicle you are working on and can be run before you start the job, then again after you complete the repair.

Why should I run the reports?

The benefit is that you can immediately show your customer where the problems lie with a pre-scan report, and using the post-scan report you can then confirm that the repairs were completed properly. Copies of the reports can be given to the customer, insurance companies and also saved for your own records.

How easy are the reports to understand?

Very. The pre-scan report will highlight any issues the vehicle has, while the post-scan report will confirm that they have been resolved. Plus, pre- and post-scan labeling options on Vehicle System Reports spell out clearly each report’s purpose.

Just click on the examples below to see what they show.*

ADAS Recalibration ReportADAS Recalibration Report

Meet the ADAS Recalibration Report, the handy companion report to Pre- and Post-scan reports. The ADAS Recalibration Report is used to show complete recalibration for one or many systems.

The ADAS Recalibration Report supplies a summary of the work carried out giving the next level of explanation to your customers and insurance companies. It identifies the vehicle, the system and date of recalibration. It also provides space to fill in input values and detailed results.

Used in tandem with the Pre- and Post-scan reports, it creates a holistic summary of the complete repair.

The report is linked with the vehicle job and if you're on the latest software and have Wi-Fi you can sync it to the Snap-on Cloud to share by text or email with customers and others.

The ADAS Recalibration Report is available on:
