If you work with heavy duty or medium duty trucks and are the one people rely on to troubleshoot, repair, and get their vehicles back on the road as quickly as possible, you need a fast and accurate tool that performs high-level diagnostic and service functions on all makes and models of trucks. You need a system that gives you instant access to comprehensive technical info and guides you to the proper solution.
New to the market this year, is the HD Truck Multi-Brand Diagnostic System, by Bosch. We predict it will save technicians countless hours that would have otherwise been spent on guesswork, unproductive time looking around the engine, or on the phone to peers for advice.
Below is a quick intro guide to the tool so you can see if it may be a good fit for you or your shop.
1. One Software Covers it All – No Need to Purchase Multiple OE Scan Tools and Software
The Bosch diagnostic platform provides OE level diagnostics and repair information for all makes and models of heavy and medium duty trucks. Coverage is also included for Trailer ABS Controllers, transmissions, and brake systems. Basic scanning functions for light duty trucks 1996 and newer are included.
It’s a single scan tool that works on all major HD trucks, including Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Volvo, Peterbilt, Sterling, Western Star; and Medium duty Freightliiner Sprinter Van, Isuzu, GM, and Ford. Engine brands covered include Cummins, Pacckar, Volvo, Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel-MBE, Mack, Perkins, Deutz, MTU, Navistar.
For independent repair shops or a fleets wanting a single scan tool that covers all heavy duty and medium trucks, this tool fits the bill.
2. Easily Create, Save and Share Reports
Want to prepare a report for your service manager or customer of all trouble codes found on a vehicle? Just select the “read faults” option and the system scans the entire truck and returns a full list of all active and inactive trouble codes sorted by module. You have the option to save the report for future reference, or print it by hooking it up to any windows printer.
3. Trouble Codes Found. Now What?
Now that you have a complete list of the vehicle’s trouble codes that were found when you selected the “read faults” option, you (along with your customer or service manager) are probably eager to get right to work on clearing them. Excellent! The software is much more than a scan tool, it is a true diagnostic platform that will guide you through the repair process. Say you want to trouble-shoot an inactive fault that just came up. Just hit the “trouble shooting” button and it will pull up the full diagnostic process for that code. Dig in even deeper by selecting the “step-by-step process” option to view repair tips and possible causes. You can also toggle to comprehensive technical data such as full circuit, interactive wiring diagrams, and component pictures and locations at any time.
Having this level of information at your fingertips can simplify and speed up the diagnostic process. Important for shops of all sizes but especially critical for smaller shops that need to be as efficient as they can at trouble shooting. Smaller shops may not have the advantage of having another technician around who can help but the Bosch software does an excellent job of walking a technician, whether new or experienced, through the diagnostic process. You don’t need to be an expert on every tool and every module – you now have a complete diagnostic platform helping you diagnose, repair and get a vehicle back on the road as quickly as possible.
4. Bi-directional Diagnostics
With the help of the tool’s bi-directional diagnostics, you’ll now find the process of pinpointing issues and clearing fault codes a lot more efficient. For example, when testing for an engine miss, the bi-directional controls allow the technician to walk through each cylinder and manually kill them one at a time for testing purposes (available for most applications).
The ability to perform bi-directional diagnostics, previously only available from factory scan tools, is one of the most versatile and powerful features of the software and is now readily available to the technician.
5. Best Field Support in the Market
Technicians are able to get up and running in no time thanks to some of the best field support in the market. A Bosch representative can visit your shop location and familiarize you with the tool’s operation and navigation. You’ll learn how to start the diagnostic process by selecting the “connect and scan” option and quickly progress to performing more advanced operations such as injector coding, running parameter resets, DPF regenerations, and conducting bi-directional diagnostics.
