Wide Band Sensors: Understanding the Latest in Feedback Technology

Supplying feedback information about the oxygen content of the exhaust to the PCM has changed and it has come in the form of a Wide Band Sensor (aka: air fuel sensor). How we diagnose these new sensors is much different. The tools we use can and will affect the results of our testing and many times may cause the diagnosis to be incorrect. These sensors are critical to Catalytic Converter operation and proper diagnosis is the key to getting the vehicle fixed right the first time.

Join us during SEMA to learn how mastering proper testing techniques of these critical sensors can add to your bottom line!

SCRS RDE Series Addresses Consolidation Trend

Rarely a day passes where the headlines of collision industry trade publications don't cover stories of multi-store operators or collision industry consolidators purchasing local collision repair businesses. There is an obvious awareness in the industry that nationally recognized collision repair brands are actively seeking larger market share through targeted acquisitions of independent business, and that the rate of such acquisitions is only increasing. The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has included several tracks in their Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series at the SEMA Show, specifically to address the trend and arm industry members with insight they can use in their business.

Estimating, Blueprinting and Billing a Focus During Repairer Driven Education at SEMA

Successful collision repair businesses understand that profitable repairs stem from a well-conceived repair plan that accounts for both the necessary tasks and a thorough accounting of the costs associated with performing them. Because of this, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has maintained an emphasis on seminars that focus on damage analysis and cost assessment during the upcoming Repairer Driven Education series at the 2013 SEMA Show. The four day show opens November 5th, and is held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Good estimates can't be formulated without in depth knowledge of required operations and the technology that drives them," shared SCRS Vice Chairman Andy Dingman. "Understanding the physical requirements of the repair process and what the manufacturers expect that process to look like is probably the most critical foundation for success in writing accurate repair plans."
