Bosch has introduced Repair-Source, a comprehensive database of vehicle service and repair information, to software version 3.5 for diagnostic scan tools ADS 325 and ADS 625.
The largest of its kind in North America, this database is a part of Bosch’s annual diagnostic subscription and carries no extra charge. Repair-Source promises to help technicians and shop owners save thousands of dollars by replacing multiple subscriptions of OE information.
“With Repair-Source and the new software version 3.5, techs can use this go-to diagnostic tool to scan more vehicles, confirm more diagnostic tests and turn cars more often with the correct repairs,” says Danijela Haskin, Product Manager. “Our tools make shops money, and the addition of Repair-Source gives them more repair information, in the tool and at the vehicle, to maximize their hours.”
The Repair-Source service information database is available on-screen as soon as technicians using Bosch ADS tools download and install software v3.5.
With Repair-Source, users have direct access to OEM service procedures, DTC troubleshooting, torque specifications, wiring diagrams, TSBs, maintenance schedules, fluid recommendations and more.
Repair-Source integration also adds the following:
- Component location
- DTC codes and definitions
- Estimated work times
- Parts and part vector illustrations
- Fluid recommendations
- Maintenance schedules
- Service procedures and specifications
- Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs)
- Vehicle identification and premium options
- Wiring diagrams
The software v3.5 also includes new coverage for Volvo, BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, GM, Ford, Hyundai and Kia vehicles. Currently, the Bosch scan tools are the only ones to offer OEM service info, repair-based confirmed fixes and symptom-based troubleshooting on an Android platform.
