Identification Data: Identifying a vehicle is the critical first step to finding a relevant part or piece of information. Locating the identification plate can be time-consuming. Tech features a locator as standard that shows the mechanic the precise location of the identification plate on the vehicle.
Maintenance Schedules: HaynesPro maintenance guides are clear, comprehensive and, above all, helpful. Full maintenance schedules, which are printable for convenience, are provided for make – model – derivative, presented by intervals and broken down by vehicle area (engine, steering, etc.). Where necessary, there are links to detailed and annotated technical drawings of components, showing their location, as well as to subsections relating to additional aspects of the task. There are instructions on how to disconnect and reconnect batteries, program ignition keys and reset service indicators and tyre pressure monitoring systems. Additional work is also displayed, for example relating to a car with a high total mileage at the time of routine service. All tasks have a corresponding time and a total time is displayed at the top and bottom of the page. A unique feature is the availability of logical follow-up tasks which makes it easier to complete the work sheet. A single overview of the all-important service intervals gives a quick indication of tasks that might be required.
Adjustment Data (Torque Settings): ‘Comprehensive’ doesn’t begin to describe the extent of the information contained in this section of Tech. The specifications provided range from torque settings to cylinder firing order, from idle speed to NOx emissions, and from cooling system cap pressure to rear brake disc thickness.
Repair Times (Flat Rates): A more realistic timeframe, HaynesPro expands official repair times to take account of associated tasks, making its data more helpful and relevant in the real world. The module contains numerous included tasks for overlap calculation. By listing follow-up tasks we ensure that no labour times are overlooked. This helps to maximise workshop revenue.
Repair Manuals: Helpfully, Tech features detailed, step-by-step repair and service instructions for those tasks which, while being relatively routine, require specific procedures for the car in question. Again, Tech provides technical illustrations and, where necessary, reference numbers identifying special tools. In this way, Tech helps boost productivity and improve workshop flow.
Lubrications and Fluids: Again, all conceivable specifications are provided here, conveniently linked to related data for ease of use, and featuring technical illustrations showing the location of filler and drain plugs.
Technical Drawings: Picture is worth a thousand words. HaynesPro has over 100,000 high-quality technical drawings in its database. Far from being generic images, these are bespoke illustrations with featured parts highlighted for ease of identification and the option to link directly to a shopping cart in a parts catalogue. Torque settings are indicated in the drawing to ensure that the correct torque is used for the specified bolt/nut. There are also notifications for bolts/nuts which must be renewed and of any requirement for using locking compound.
Fuses and Relays: Clear fuse location and identification feature. Ever helpful, HaynesPro has created an Electronics module packed with essential information, typified by this clear fuse location and identification feature. Fuse boxes may be installed in various locations on a vehicle, making them more difficult to find. Using the data in Fuses and Relays minimises the time spent on searching.
Locations: One of the clear goals of HaynesPro’s data is to reduce the number of unbillable hours. The time spent on searching for ground points, control units or the EOBD connector location should be reduced as much as possible. To facilitate this, HaynesPro’s electronic data offers direct links to such locations.
Electronic Procedures: Disconnecting/reconnecting a battery used to be a straightforward task. In modern vehicles, the procedure is more complicated. The mechanic needs to know what procedures to follow after reconnecting a battery. This will prevent the customer having to return the vehicle to the workshop due to errors in systems such as parking assistance or power windows. Due to the growing number of hybrid vehicles on the market, mechanics also need specific instructions on how to work safely on these vehicles.
Warning lights and indicators: An extensive list of possible warning lights, specific to each manufacturer, with a short description and solution.
Wiring Diagrams: Clear, ‘localised’ wiring schematics for all key vehicle features, with wire and component trace functionality for fast, efficient, first-time fixes. Wiring diagrams covering e.g. door locks, windows, airbags, exterior lights, starting/charging and wash/wiper systems Pan and zoom functionality Highlight functionality to trace corresponding wires and components.
HaynesPro VESA™ (Vehicle Electronics Smart Assistant): An innovative electronics diagnostics tool. Using data retrieved from the vehicle’s CAN-Bus system, VESA helps mechanics to diagnose fault codes and component errors. The module, which benefits from intelligent, step-by-step diagnostics, generates local component diagrams from a ‘net list’ and automatically generates type-specific diagnostic solutions whereby the fault code defines the most logical diagnostic path.
Technical Service Bulletins: It contains OEM Technical Service Bulletins complete with symptoms, causes and solutions, supported by fault codes, their analysis and fault rectification details. With a simple mouse click, the mechanic can instantly be shown how to fix the fault
HaynesPro SmartFIX: It provides Technical Service Bulletins containing all the information which a workshop needs to diagnose and repair common faults across a range of vehicles.
HaynesPro SmartCASE: Thousands of problems and fixes sourced form professionals in the automotive sector. It offers clearly formulated and appropriate solutions, enabling every mechanic to work with this data, it helps the independent workshop to quickly check for solutions to uncommon problems for a selected vehicle, so saving time and money.
