How to Find Multimedia Links in Your Auto Repair Information

Where to find ProDemand multimedia links

Without a doubt, you are familiar with the OEM published text and black and white line drawings that still make up the majority of your auto repair information. In the age of streaming Netflix and YouTube, you have to be thinking what I am thinking… THIS IS THE 21st CENTURY!  As critical as this repair information still is in day-to-day repairs, why can’t information be delivered in a more efficient way?

The world has come a long way with the digital age, and repair information should follow suit. OEMs have been listening by adding rich multimedia content to their service and repair information, including audio, video and even 3D rendered images. We are excited to announce that we have been able to capture and provide this multimedia content in your ProDemand repair information as of late 2017.

In order to take advantage of the feature, you just have to look for the multimedia links in the product. The video or audio clips will play right inside ProDemand, without needing to go to another website. Please note that not all searches will yield multimedia results because OEMs have not published content for every issue. However, they are exponentially growing their multimedia libraries, which is great news for technicians in the 21st century.
