Technicians can navigate electrical issues on today’s advanced vehicles, whether they’re built on electric or internal-combustion platforms
San Diego—Mitchell 1 has added a new wire-to-wire feature to its advanced interactive wiring diagrams within the ProDemand auto repair information software that the company said will increase productivity for technicians as they navigate electrical issues on today’s advanced vehicles, whether they’re built on electric or internal-combustion platforms.
“Mitchell 1 has again enhanced its best-in-class ProDemand wiring diagrams with a new wire-to-wire jump feature that will make the difficult task of diagnosing complex vehicles even easier,” said Ben Johnson, director of product management for Mitchell 1. “It’s part of our commitment to provide information to repair today’s vehicles and the ever-growing population of electric models.”
Technicians often had to jump from a wire in one diagram to the related content for a component in a separate diagram to get the full picture of a circuit. With the new wire-to-wire feature, ProDemand takes technicians to the specific wire in a companion diagram with the trace already highlighted, Johnson said. The history navigation arrows can easily take them back to where they started with the original trace highlighted.
Exclusive to Mitchell 1, advanced interactive wiring diagrams let users navigate via the diagram directly to repair information for components. Component names shown in the wiring diagrams are active links that take users straight to the information needed, such as location, connector views and replacement procedures. Connectors, grounds and splices are searchable in 1Search and include active hyperlinks that take users directly to related content. ProDemand takes the user to the specific diagram, and when the diagram is opened, the component, connector, ground or splice will be in focus with all the traces already highlighted.
