Diagnostic scans are an essential part of your vehicle’s maintenance, just like you have a yearly checkup with your physician. The diagnostic scan and manufacturers position statement goes hand-in-hand, the diagnostic scan tells the technician what is wrong with your vehicle and the manufacturers position statement are the guidelines that the technician goes by in order to return your vehicle back to the manufacturers specs.
Listed below is the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) information. Manufacturers position statements are guidelines set out by the manufacturer, which states that your vehicle after a accident must be scanned before and after repair, to ensure that all systems are returned to proper working condition or pre-collision status. These position statements are essentially repair standards set by the vehicle manufacturer to insure that the highest level of quality is maintained when the vehicle is being either repaired or serviced by a facility.
