ALLDATA Repair Provides Mode $06 Data Onboard Diagnostics monitor test results yield important information
Elk Grove, CA – October 14, 2008 – ALLDATA LLC, the leading provider of vehicle manufacturers’ service and repair information for professional repair shops, incorporates Mode $06 data in its ALLDATA® RepairSM product. The $ in the name indicates the system’s hexadecimal numbering system.
Mode $06 monitor test data is a part of the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD II) system, which is installed on most cars and light trucks on the road today. The monitor test results offer valuable diagnostic clues even before a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is generated by the system.
ALLDATA Managing Editor Josef Nairn explains, “Emissions and driveability technicians use the monitor test results to diagnose problems and verify repairs. These results have become increasingly important as technicians learn how to use Mode $06 data.”
ALLDATA Repair contains detailed service and repair information for more than 20,000 engine-specific vehicles, including DTCs and associated procedures.
