Repair-Connect, a new tool designed to shorten repair time and lower truck operating costs, was introduced by Mitchell 1 at a press conference held during the 2010 annual Technology and Maintenance Council Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition in Tampa, Fla.
Mitchell 1, which also provides Web-based service and repair information with Tractor-Trailer.net and Medium-Truck.net, says Repair-Connect speeds up the repair process by taking an experienced technician using Mitchell 1 programs directly to the service information he needs by simply inputting the diagnostic trouble code. Repair-Connect anticipates what detailed information is required to fix the vehicle based on the DTC and retrieves it in seconds.
An easy selection menu quickly navigates the program and delivers a “to-the-point” wiring diagram displaying just the wires making up a particular circuit; Repair-Connect also provides the entire engine diagram when needed. Thousands of digital photos provide detailed real-world views of components involved with the repair.
Mitchell 1 says that by using the intelligent diagnostic capabilities of Repair-Connect, truck service facilities can increase their productivity and lower the operating costs of the vehicles they are servicing by having repairs completed quickly and correctly.
