FOND DU LAC, Wis., Nov. 1, 2016 — Wells Vehicle Electronics is excited to announce
the implementation of its new Smog Test for the company’s GoTech™ Mobile OBDII
Diagnostic Tool – an innovative automotive diagnostic solution for consumers and repair
professionals. Available as a free in-app upgrade when using the GoTech device, the
Smog Test allows users to identify incomplete powertrain system monitors on their
vehicle which may indicate issues related to excessive emissions levels.

The GoTech scan tool identifies when the vehicle may be emitting excessive levels of
smog emissions and the user-friendly, mobile interface offers easy-to-read test
summaries. GoTech also provides diagnostic codes which can be shared with vehicle
repair facility personnel to diagnose specific powertrain failures, allowing drivers to
quickly address emission violations to keep their vehicle functioning as efficiently as

“The addition of the new smog emissions test further demonstrates both the versatility
and convenience of the GoTech OBDII Diagnostic Tool,” said David Boer, vice president
of marketing, Wells Vehicle Electronics. “This tool continues to be a game-changer for
service writers and technicians as it provides easy access to performance information,
all while fitting in your pocket.”

With the GoTech device and free app, users can use their compatible mobile devices to
easily scan vehicles and monitor performance, define powertrain trouble codes, access
Wells’ proprietary library of more than 10 million diagnostic records compiled by Master ASE-certified technicians, and clear powertrain trouble codes. Users can also identify
technical service bulletins (TSB) and recall information as it applies to each specific
vehicle. The device can store up to 10 vehicles and includes a “Freeze Frame” option,
giving users the ability to email vehicle performance information at the time the code is
set. The tool works with OBDII vehicles (model years 1996 and newer) and is compatible
with iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
