Chicago, IL (June 22, 2021) — Since 2019, under the Elite Electronics and VeTech Automotive Electronics brands, LKQ’s diagnostic services business, now branded Elitek Vehicle Services (“Elitek”), has grown to become the largest independent provider of mobile, on-site vehicle services to automotive collision repairers, mechanical repairers, and national fleets in the U.S.
Effective today, Elitek is expanding its services beyond on-site mobile diagnostics and repair to also include remote automotive diagnostics and remote programming. Repair facilities can now call one company, Elitek, to service all their diagnostic service needs.
With the addition of Remote diagnostics, Elitek can provide shops with a seamless, end-to-end process and value proposition:
- STEP #1 – Remote Diagnostics — Shop technicians can plug-in an OBDII device that remotely connects the vehicle to Elitek’s call center. The technician, with support from a centralized Elitek diagnostician, conducts the diagnostic scan(s), produces a scan report, enables remote programming where applicable, and invoices for the service.
- STEP #2 – Mobile Diagnostics — If additional onsite services are required, including ADAS calibration or mechanical, Elitek’s mobile service can be deployed to complete the repair, using an array of OEM software, tools, and certified technicians.
