FCA Has Video Procedures

Looking for more information about a specific repair procedure? Some OEMs are now providing videos within the repair procedures on their service site. Vehicle makers may also have additional websites that contain repair videos. As we research OEM websites and find these helpful videos, we will write articles to let you know. Let’s take a closer look at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

Procedures that include video explanations can only be found on the FCA paid subscription website. There you will find videos within the service information for calibration. You will also find several videos for removal and installation (R&I) of different vehicle components. It is important to note that not all procedures or vehicles contain videos.

To find out if your vehicle has calibration videos, you will need to enter the year and model of the vehicle, then click on the Service Info tab. Once there, you will need to click on Electrical, and then click on Electronic Control Modules. Within electronic control modules, find the correct input or component that needs calibration.

Here are some examples of what will be explained in calibration videos:

  • Overview of the written procedure
  • Preliminary operations
    • how to get the vehicle ready for calibration
    • making sure the component being calibrated is clean
  • How to use special tools
  • Scan tool operations

To find out if your vehicle has body component removal and installation videos, go to the Service Info tab and click on Body. From there, click on the procedure for your repair. You may notice there are a few videos on how to remove bolt-on parts. For example, on some models, there are videos on how to remove door handles.

Here are some examples of what will be explained in R&I videos:

  • Recommended tools
  • Where to find bolts that need to be removed
  • Techniques that allow for a smooth R&I

Although videos can be extremely helpful, they are not intended to replace the written procedures. They are there to serve as a guide. Being diligent with reading and following OEM procedures is vital to ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
