Certain repair situations may require the on board vehicle battery to be connected to a battery charger/ battery maintainer during repairs.

Example of this situation is during the scanning process. The OEM may state the vehicle must maintain a certain voltage to ensure all modules, computers, and electrical consumer equipment are being scanned at the proper voltage level. Battery charging/ Battery maintenance is NOT INCLUDED in developed labor times and would be an on the spot evaluation.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY – it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
