Automotive Parts Data

Car owners and independent repair shops need full access to the information, parts and tools necessary to accurately diagnose, repair and re-program virtually every function of a vehicle, including but not limited to: brakes, steering, fuel delivery, and ignition.  Unfortunately, vehicle manufacturers often make access to this important original equiment (OE) data increasingly difficult and costly to obtain for independent repair shops and their customers.

ARA supports right to repair legislation that requires vehicle manufacturers to provide the same service information, tools and capabilities to independent repair shops that they offer to their franchised dealer network.  Access to OE data is becoming increasingly important as computer controlled vehicle systems are more commonplace.
