Mitchell 1 updates software with ABS, engine, transmission identification

Nov. 2, 2023
Mitchell's TruckSeries software has been updated with a new ID Tag identification and location feature to help technicians more quickly locate and identify the system control module.

Mitchell 1 has unveiled a new feature within its TruckSeries maintenance software designed to assist technicians in finding and recognizing anti-lock braking systems (ABS), engine, and transmission identification tags on trucks undergoing service.

When trucks are brought in for diagnosis and repair at service centers, this new feature could help technicians more quickly locate and identify the system control module, according to a Mitchell press release.

“We spend a lot of time with customers to ensure that TruckSeries is user-friendly and meets their expectations. Sometimes we hear about tasks that cause a minor bump in the road, and addressing these issues is a priority for us,” said Kristy Coffman, director of Mitchell 1’s commercial vehicle group.

“Adding these ID tags was fairly easy to accomplish and has been very well received,” she added. “It saves time so technicians can get trucks back on the road faster. This frees up service bays for additional jobs and in turn, boosts overall revenue for the shop.”

The new ID Tag identification and location feature is accessible within TruckSeries, both in the 1Search and Service Manual sections. Under the “Common Specs” button for the current vehicle in 1Search, there’s an option named “ABS-Transmission-Engine-Identification Tag Locations,” leading users to the ID tag information.
Upon selecting the link, an article with headers for ABS, Engine, and Transmission tag locations is presented. Clicking on the ABS Identification Tag Locations reveals a list of available ABS manufacturers for the truck makes and models in TruckSeries.
Once the controller is located and identified, the user can open up the TruckSeries vehicle selector and select the correct controller from the menu selections. Additionally, users can open and enlarge images of the controllers for easier, detailed viewing.
