FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (July 5, 2016) — Mahle Aftermarket Inc.'s Service Solutions division has added coverage for Mazda and Nissan vehicles for its TechPRO diagnostic scan tool.
Software updates for the tool cover all Mazda vehicles from 2007 to 2014, along with a majority of 2003 to 2006 models, the company said. Nissan coverage includes complete coverage of vehicle model years from 2007 to 2014.
According to Mahle, TechPRO was designed for busy technicians to be easy to use and quick to launch. The tool is able to decode a vehicle identification number in seconds with one click, the firm added.
A scan of vehicle wide diagnostic trouble codes on all modules takes 30 seconds or less with the Bluetooth-enabled vehicle communication interface (VCI).
The scan tool is manufactured in the U.S. and engineered to allow technicians a faster and easier way to diagnose and repair vehicles by using their current Windows 7, 8 or 10 based tablet, laptop or desktop computer, making it unnecessary to buy or lease extra hardware, Mahle said.
A subscription to TechPRO includes the VCI and software.
NAPA offers an exclusive two-year software subscription (extended from one-year) with each TechPRO automotive diagnostic system purchased for a price of $1,599. NAPA offers the same subscription package with an 8-inch Windows tablet included for $1,999. An upgrade to a 10-inch tablet also is available for an additional $200.
TechPRO is available exclusively through NAPA until June 30.
