Modern methods and techniques employed to repair cars

18
As years pass by, every car undergoes its wear and tear condition after having run for some years.  Then it’s time for repairs and getting a car repaired is quite expensive. There is constantly new innovation and ways to repair products, that is why it is very important to get the right replacement for the parts of the car that have been damaged or disfigured.  Technology such as Professional Diagnostic Tools provide an alternative to traditional repairs, but vehicles need repairs either way.

This is where all the problems begin as most cars as well as their spare parts become redundant in a few years’ time. That is why cars are harder to repair nowadays.  Moreover, the automotive technician must be updated according to the demands of modern technologies and techniques, and in most auto repair centers the technicians have been forced to take up extra training to update their skills and capabilities in order to satisfy the modern needs, especially with vehicle diagnostic tools. Though there are efforts to introduce modern techniques and methods nowadays to make it possible to overcome the difficulty in fixing cars, there are still many apprehensions regarding the availability of getting the services in the entire auto repairs center.

Technology has rapidly improved, with the introduction and wide use of vehicle diagnostic tools by both motor repair shops as well as individuals. Vehicle diagnostic tools allow for users to easily access the point of damage and understand what part of the car needs repair.

Some of the modern methods and techniques employed to repair cars include:

Computerized Color matching techniques for painting is one of the methods used to get the paint to the exact color of the car that may have gone out of stock or is not manufactured any more. By using the Automotive diagnostic tools of photo-spectrometer, the color of the original paint is analyzed and then a matching color is obtained that flawlessly matches the original.

Dent Repair techniques is another new method used on cars to repair the dents that might occur due to accidents or hits.  Most mechanics face difficulty in fixing cars, with surfaces that are angular or curved in shape. But with the use of specialized tools and processes, it is possible to straighten out those dented surfaces in the car.

Straightening the car body-frame is another area where damages usually occur and is difficult to repair which explains why cars are harder to repair nowadays. With Autel MaxiSys Mini on the rise the body of the car gets damaged longitudinally and laterally. The inconsistency in its alignment is recognized by computerized methods and then alignment is done by a laser method to restore the shape.

How to use the vehicle diagnostic tool

To retrieve the various fault codes, a diagnostic tool such as a code reader or Obd2 scanner is required to determine the issues with your car. Simply connect the scanner to your laptop, computer, iPhone etc. after installing the software into the system. Connect the port with the inbuilt device in your car and follow the instructions from the tool or the software. This will display the DTCs and the code translation sheet will help you decode the same to figure out the malfunction. Many advanced versions of the diagnostic tools even display the text explanation of the fault code on the screen or have graphic functions to allow one to watch the different vehicle parameters onscreen while the engine is running.

OBD-II scanners differ in function

 

Obd2 scanner differ in function. Some only work as mere trouble code readers, while others can interact with sensors throughout a vehicle. Accessing trouble codes will not turn your check engine light off. Accessing the codes will only tell you the malfunctions the vehicle’s computer has recorded. Codes can be erased with a scanner, but if the problem has not been fixed, the check engine light will always come back on.

Software-wise, my choice for this on Android is Torque, an excellent app that not only can collect all the OBD-II stats, but also graph and log them in myriad ways. (There’s also a free version, Torque Lite, that has a fair deal of the functionality of the full version.) Grab either one from the Google Play store.

Note that this solution is for read-only access to the OBD-II system in the car. You can’t modify the running parameters of the vehicle with this adapter, unfortunately (or fortunately, perhaps, as it’s very easy to make a mess of things). Flashing your car’s computer with a new fuel curve or ignition timing map is a nontrivial exercise that requires an adapter with different voltage levels and different Auto Repair Software. So, don’t worry about breaking your car with this solution—you’re just “peeking under the hood”.

Make sure the vehicle is turned off. Locate the Data Link Connector under the steering wheel. This is an outlet that allows access to the diagnostic computer, which in most vehicles is on the driver side.Connect your Professional Diagnostic Tools to the Data Link Connector. The scanner cable has in a 16-pin plug that should naturally fit into the outlet.Insert your vehicle’s key into the ignition cylinder and switch to “On.” Depending on the brand of OBD-II device, you may also need to turn the engine on and allow it to idle.
