Pre & Post Scans
At Layton Carcare we perform Pre and Post scans on all vehicles as recommended by that vehicle’s manufacturer.
But, as a consumer, are you aware of the auto manufacturer’s requirements for safe repairs?
As automotive technology evolves, advanced safety features are introduced, and vehicles are designed to automatically prevent accidents based on information from various computers and sensors, the proper repair and calibration of these sensors and computers become vital to the safety of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
Original Equipment Manufacturers
Many OEMs have released official statements saying that in order to be sure that repaired vehicles are safe to drive and that the sensors and computers within them are reliable, they need to be scanned before and after repairs.
The pre-repair scan should tell repair technicians whether the computers need to be repaired, replaced, or recalibrated when the vehicle comes into the shop. The post-repair scan will tell them whether the repair itself corrected (or caused) any errors before the vehicle is returned to its owner.
An example of what an OE manufacturer states:
During the panel discussion at the 2016 National Autobody Conference Event, the OEM panelists agreed that performing diagnostic scans is necessary. Brian Wayne, the representative from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, stated that the Chrysler Pacifica contains over 200 computers, many of which don’t trigger dashboard warning lights for every little problem.
Imagine having a separate dashboard warning light for every issue or even every system within the vehicle! According to OEMs, it’s not realistic and scanning vehicles is the only way to identify and diagnose every issue.
So it’s about safety and protecting your investment.
Know this: Layton Carcare will Pre and Post Scan your vehicle. Capture your data and will consult with you and your insurance carrier about any repairs, recalibration, or test procedures (like test drives) that are needed to insure that ALL the damage from the accident gets diagnosed and repaired.
