Vehicle System 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 analyses all available systems for the vehicle plus Global OBD-II codes and Readiness Monitors for a more complete view of vehicle systems.
  • The vehicle 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 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.
