Mitchell 1 builds on its industry-leading database of repair information with the release of comprehensive Mode 6 data in its update of OnDemand5.com.

"Mode 6 information continues to become more and more relevant for diagnostic technicians every day,” said Gary Hixson, product manager. “In the past year, we’ve found that diagnostic technicians are demanding this sophisticated information in order to properly repair increasingly complex vehicle systems.”

The value of Mode 6 data lies in the ability to diagnose vehicles at a deeper level via test parameter and result information for OBD II systems. For the first time, technicians now know the amount by which a test passed or failed.

Hixson continued, “At Mitchell 1, we’re particularly proud of this achievement as it is an example of listening closely to our customers’ needs and responding quickly to improve their ability to fix vehicles more efficiently.”
