Bulletin date: 16/10/2017
Safety is GM and Holden’s number one priority. A number of important changes have been made with regards to Pre and Post Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) scanning. This bulletin replaces 2017-R3750.
Post-Repair Scans must be carried out after the collision repair of every Holden vehicle when the following occurs
Holden recommends Pre-Repair Scans. There are several benefits conducting a pre-repair scan for Collision Repairers and Insurers:
Technology Supported Diagnostic Aids
The method to correctly identify vehicle diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) is by using the appropriate GM diagnostic software: GDS2 or Tech 2/Tech2Win. Each can scan a vehicle for all DTCs in one operation. GM diagnostic software is supported by one of the GM approved diagnostic scan tools
GM does not recommend the use of other scan tools and cannot guarantee their accuracy.
