All Your Important Information in One Place
Technical Information is the most important asset any aftermarket garage can have. As with any service and repair procedure, having the detailed information on how, where, when and what to do is vital to the completion of any task.
Vehicles are now so complicated it is impossible to complete most tasks without some amount of research and technical information or even technical support. Currently garages have this technical information in different programs or media, which makes referencing the information quickly a difficult task. It could be held on a diagnostic tester itself, in a technical data program or the data may only be available via a dreaded “google search”.
This is where the new DTS Tech information program will pay dividends to any garage or technical workshop. DTS Tech acts like a dashboard on your PC and keeps all your important information in one place. Being easy to access and quick to locate, DTS Tech saves significant time and gives the technician accurate, structured and valuable information.
In its basic form, DTS Tech is packed with useful information with over 170,000 fault code explanations, over 4000 technical bulletins plus an array of tips and hints, conversions, charts and much much more. Add to this VRM lookup, service schedules and service times and you have an information package that you will use every day.
In addition to this the DTS Tech can have Haynespro technical information embedded into the system and therefore from the one dashboard you can access all your information needs in one place.
But the power of DTS Tech does not stop there. If you own and subscribe to a Texa, Delphi or very soon a Bosch diagnostic system you will be able to embed this software into DTS Tech and launch your diagnostic tester software again from the dashboard of DTS Tech. This means from a single VRM lookup, DTS Tech will search the database, select the correct vehicle, locate the correct service schedule, load the correct technical data, launch the diagnostic testers software and return results only pertaining to that vehicle.
Furthermore, DTS Tech has an addon package of technical support. For only a few pounds a week DTS Tech customers can access technical support via email to a team of master techs. As an added benefit every time you re-subscribe to your diagnostic software or technical data you get your technical support events topped up at no extra cost.
As garages are constantly faced with new cars, this brings new challenges and the all important question of where do you look for help? DTS Tech is a PC based portal where all of your important information can be in one place.
Whether it is technical data, service data, service schedules, technical bulletins, fault codes, wiring diagrams, component location, repair procedures, conversion and calculations or general tips and hints, DTS Tech is crammed with information that has been reviewed and documented from real garage based feedback.
Furthermore, selected diagnostic equipment can be embedded into DTS Tech to streamline and enhance your diagnostic procedures, with the technical support package completing the services to ensure everything is at your fingertips..
VRM Lookup (Registration Number Search)
Ensuring you have the correct information and vehicle application is essential to correct repair and diagnosis.
With DTS Tech all of this information can be viewed either manually or via VRM lookup meaning from a single VRM lookup DTS Tech will search the database, select the correct vehicle, locate the correct service schedule, load the correct technical data, launch the diagnostic testers software and return results only pertaining to that vehicle.
Haynes Pro Basic
An important feature of the DTS Tech portal is the ability to access OE based service schedules and essential service info by quickly entering the vehicle registration number.
This ensures your servicing procedures match the vehicle servicing requirements according to the vehicle manufacturer and furthermore a quick search of the bulletins will reveal useful information specific to that vehicle model.
Haynes Pro Basic offers accurate information on service schedules, maintenance, repair times, repair information, adjustment data, cam belt info, lubricants and fluids.
DTS Tech is packed with over 170,000 fault code references each with and an explanation of fault and many with links to technical bulletins. With VRM lookup fault codes can be linked to the exact vehicle and the nature of the fault.

DTS Tech is packed with useful information which is often difficult or time consuming to locate. Stored under the functions tab are the “toolbox”, “formulas” and “links” tabs: Toolbox offers more general bulletins, tips and hints and other useful information. Formulas offer a range of conversion tables, technical tables, Vin to year conversion and more. Links gives you access to the correct web page for many OEM sites for items such as diagnostics and manuals.
New cars bring about new challenges and this is where technical support is extremely valuable. A very important element of the DTS Tech package is the technical support module, where you can communicate directly with the hotline centre and quickly get valuable support.
You have access to a team of master technicians and automotive experts who possess the necessary expert knowledge to provide the answer you need, when you most need it. They can assist with a huge variety of questions including diagnostic support, locating technical data, troubleshooting, service reset procedures and much much more.
The technical support is accessed via the DTS Tech program under the “hotline” tab. From here you can raise a case and link via the portal to the technical support team. Depending on the content of the hotline question one of the experts will pick up the case, reply to your questions and follow it through to a satisfactory conclusion, where hopefully you receive a resolution to your enquiry.
Technical support is available in packages of 5 events. As you use your events more can be purchased so you pay only for what you use.
Direct Links to your Diagnostic Testers
DTS Tech contains “hot keys” direct to your diagnostic scan tools and this saves valuable time launching different programs and re-entering vehicle applications.
From your initially entered VRM lookup the DTS Tech program will select the correct vehicle details and link your diagnostic scan tool to the correct vehicle application. One click of the diagnostic tester hot key and the diagnostic scan tool is ready to go with the correct vehicle selection. From here it is possible to toggle between your diagnostic scan tool, technical data information, technical bulletins and technical support, making navigation through your diagnostic requirements quicker and easier to achieve.
As an added benefit, having your diagnostic testers and technical information packages located in your DTS Tech portal entitles you to additional free technical support events. Each time you re-subscribe to your annual diagnostic software or technical information, five technical support events are added to your account.
