Original Press Release:
New EuroCheck Reset Tool From Snap-on Tools Company Delivers Easy and Affordable Solution for Servicing European Vehicles
First easily-affordable tool for resetting oil and service maintenance lights of most European vehicles KENOSHA, Wis., April 30, 2004 - Independent service shops and other automotive service providers now have a simple and affordable solution for quickly resetting oil and service maintenance indicators on European vehicles. The new Snap-on® EuroCheck (MTSC25) lets technicians reset a variety of oil and service lights for most major European vehicles, including Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Volvo and Saab. This innovative multi-system scan/reset tool also lets technicians clear airbag and climate control diagnostic trouble codes, enabling them to troubleshoot those systems. Performing those functions on European vehicles typically requires the vehicle manufacturer's proprietary OEM tool for the specific vehicle under service. Their high cost generally puts them beyond the reach of most independent service shops. EuroCheck is the perfect solution for both independent service shops as well as collision repair shops, national service chains and franchise fast-lube outlets, enabling them to perform diagnostic work that would otherwise be sent to specialty shops or new-car dealers, which incurs a cost to both the shop or service outlet and the customer. EuroCheck's functionality and ease of use are especially important for collision repair shops, quick-lube outlets and national service chains, which need a tool that delivers only the functionality they need, as opposed to purchasing a higher-cost tool that performs a wider array of service and diagnostic tasks, such as engine- and transmission-related diagnostics. Collision repair shops, for example, need a tool that lets them quickly and easily read and clear airbag and climate control codes. Similarly, the capability to quickly and easily reset oil and service maintenance lights is paramount for quick-lube outlets, while national service chains need EuroCheck's full range of functionality. EuroCheck is so easy to use, in fact, that virtually all levels of technicians, including apprentice technicians, can operate the tool effectively, increasing their shops' overall productivity. Thanks to the tool's ease of use, apprentice technicians can tackle additional diagnostic jobs, freeing up their shops' diagnostic experts to concentrate on things like drivability diagnostics. Most shops and other service outlets should be able to return their full investment in EuroCheck in as little as a few months. What's more, adding support for new vehicle models and makes is very easy because EuroCheck uses a simple plug-in software card. Built-in Spanish language support is also provided at no additional cost. Together, EuroCheck's unique range of functionality, wide vehicle coverage, ease of use and affordability make it an essential tool for any shop or other service provider servicing European vehicles on a regular basis.
