Handling hybrid repairs

Servicing hybrids requires a commitment to keeping up with the pace of evolving technology

A: No, most routine hybrid service doesn’t require depowering the high-voltage electrical system as part of routine service. However, that may change if you need to perform more involved service procedures on certain systems. Always consult service information first before proceeding and if you do need to depower the high-voltage system, follow the manufacturer’s procedure to the letter.

Hybrid service routines and tools will continue to develop at a rapid pace as technology dictates. As long as you make a pledge to stay current and follow proper safety procedures, you’ll be able to stay in stride with the changes coming your way.
