Kia Position Statement: Pre- and Post-Repair System Scanning

Kia released a position statement recently relating to collision repair. Let’s take a look at what this statement is about.

Following suit with many other OEMs, Kia posted a position statement on pre- and post-repair system scanning titled, Kia Pre and Post Diagnostic Scanning Related To Collision Repairs Statement. In the statement, Kia states: "After a collision has occurred, it is imperative to perform both pre-repair and post-repair scan procedures within all the systems to test for potential diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs)." Kia also stresses that: "A DTC alert may not always illuminate a DTC indicator light on the dash board, so testing for codes is important both before and after repairs are made, even if the repairs appear to be minor."
