Pre and Post-Repair Diagnostic Scan Authorization
This diagnostic work authorization form grants Xtreme Auto Collision permission to perform a pre and post-repair diagnostic scan on your vehicle as part of the repair process. By accepting this procedure, you acknowledge the repair shop will not be held liable for problems with the vehicle that cannot be detected without proper diagnostic scans.
Pre Repair Diagnostic Scan: This is a complete health check of your vehicle and provides the repair shop (and insurance company, if applicable) a complete report on the number of computer modules on board, as well as any diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's) that could indicate pre-accident and/or accident related damage. This essential step eliminates the unnecessary delays waiting for parts and/or additional insurance authorization, and identifies issues with the vehicle that could be missed without a pre repair diagnostic scan.
Post Repair Diagnostic Scan: This step ensures that all systems on your vehicle are in proper working order prior to delivery. It is important to note that the majority of DTC's do not result in a malfunction indicator lamp (dashboard light). Failure to perform a post-repair scan by trained professionals with factory scanning tools significantly increases the risk that your vehicle may be returned with malfunctioning, or inoperable, safety and convenience systems. A post-repair diagnostic scan is the single best way to ensure that your vehicle is returned to pre-incident condition.
In the process of performing a diagnostic scan, Xtreme Auto Collision will collect important historical vehicle data, including in some cases, the date, time, and mileage of when a DTC was created. This information is helpful in understanding if a problem is accident related or pre-existing. It is possible this information will be shared with your insurance company. Your acceptance of this procedure grants Xtreme Auto Collision permission to share this information with others, including your insurance company. No personally identifiable information is collected during the pre or post-repair scan.
