KTS Diagnostics: Lesson 4

By autotech-nath on July 29, 2023

Identifying known fixes with experience-based repair…

Welcome to the fourth bitesize guide in our series of useful tips to help your workshop maximise the potential of your Bosch ESI[tronic] 2.0 software

IDENTIFY AND REMEDY KNOWN FIXES FASTER…

Last time, we delved into the time-saving potential of our ‘Service Tasks’ tool. By putting all the tasks your workshop team need to complete right at their fingertips – in seconds – ‘Service Tasks’ gives your engineers a head-start on the work at hand. While our Experience Based Repair (EBR) – Known Fixes feature helps them take efficiency to the next level.

FIXES YOU CAN TRUST, IN ONE CONVENIENT PLACE…

With the online knowledge exchange growing by the day, many workshops are turning to Google for their repair instructions. While the internet is a huge data source, many results are unvetted and unverified. Leaving a lot of time- consuming legwork for your team, even if the initial search goes smoothly.

By aggregating knowledge from across a worldwide diagnostic community of 75,000 experts, EBR – Known Fixes cuts out potential hours wasted searching the web. From the technical hotline and internet forums to trending Google searches – the EBR-finder utilises an innovative

algorithm to identify common problems from across a wide variety of sources and alert our experienced ESI[tronic] SIS authors of any emerging challenges being experienced in the field. This expert team then check the entries for plausibility and validate the data to create Bosch-quality content to guide you through the fix.

ACCESSING EBR – KNOWN FIXES…

Found under the Known Fixes tab, EBR – Known Fixes allows you to find the right solution in seconds.

Once registered, you can freely type any text into our search agent to find common fixes by fault code, symptom, component or keyword.

RANKED BY LIKES…

Find our most popular fixes, fast. Thanks to the feedback feature we’ve made it easy for technicians on the ground to rate a fix – helping you to easily see the industry’s best-ranked solutions, see Figure 1. It also enables you to have your say on how useful you found a particular fix.

SEARCH BAR…

You can quickly and easily search our database of fixes by keyword. Just like you would if you were relying on traditional search engines. The biggest difference? Every result is Bosch approved, see Figure 2.
