“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,” said 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.”

Technicians using a Bosch ADS tool will see the Repair-Source service information database on-screen after downloading and installing software V3.5. Repair-Source provides direct access to OEM service procedures, DTC troubleshooting, torque specifications, wiring diagrams, TSBs, maintenance schedules, fluid recommendations and more.
