Wells Vehicle Electronics announced the implementation of its new Smog Test for the company’s GoTech Mobile OBDII Diagnostic Tool – an innovative automotive diagnostic solution for consumers and repair professionals. Available as a free in-app upgrade when using the GoTech device, the Smog Test allows users to identify incomplete powertrain system monitors on their vehicle that may indicate issues related to excessive emissions levels.

The GoTech scan tool identifies when the vehicle may be emitting excessive levels of smog emissions and the user-friendly, mobile interface offers easy-to-read test summaries. GoTech also provides diagnostic codes which can be shared with vehicle repair facility personnel to diagnose specific powertrain failures, allowing drivers to quickly address emission violations to keep their vehicle functioning as efficiently as possible.

“The addition of the new smog emissions test further demonstrates both the versatility and convenience of the GoTech OBDII Diagnostic Tool,” said David Boer, vice president of marketing, Wells Vehicle Electronics. “This tool continues to be a game-changer for service writers and technicians as it provides easy access to performance information, all while fitting in your pocket.”

With the GoTech device and free app, users can use their compatible mobile devices to easily scan vehicles and monitor performance, define powertrain trouble codes, access Wells’ proprietary library of more than 10 million diagnostic records compiled by Master ASE-certified technicians, and clear powertrain trouble codes. Users can also identify technical service bulletins (TSB) and recall information as it applies to each specific vehicle. The device can store up to 10 vehicles and includes a “Freeze Frame” option, giving users the ability to email vehicle performance information at the time the code is set. The tool works with OBDII vehicles (model years 1996 and newer) and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
