iATN Knowledge Base Exceeds Three Million Records

The International Automotive Technicians' Network (iATN) recently exceeded three million records in its Knowledge Base, a collection of automotive repair databases that contains real world technical information generated by iATN members.

The International Automotive Technicians’ Network (iATN), www.iatn.net, recently exceeded three million records in its Knowledge Base, a collection of automotive repair databases that contains real world technical information generated by iATN members.

“The content in the Knowledge Base spans approximately 15 years and is based on the actual repair experiences and discussions of iATN members working on vehicles in the shop,” said Brent Black, iATN founder. “This real world information makes the Knowledge Base a unique and essential resource for automotive service professionals.”

The Knowledge Base contains the FIX Database, which includes help requests, replies, and fixes to thousands of vehicle problems submitted by iATN members; Web Forum Archives with previous discussions from iATN’s more than 20 forums covering topics on shop management, tools and equipment, technical theory and technical tips; and the Waveform Library with its waveforms, vehicle specific test data from scan tools and other instruments, photos, videos and technical documents.

The Knowledge Base is searchable by many search criteria, including make, model, vehicle year, system, VIN, symptoms or keywords. In addition, relational information features are being added to several areas of iATN, including the recently introduced Related Documents & Media feature that searches all of iATN for other fixes, forum posts and files tied to related vehicles based on engine package.

iATN has more than 72,000 active members from 154 countries, and these members collectively share approximately 1.6 million years of experience.

The iATN Mission of Excellence: To promote the continued growth, success and image of the professional automotive technician by providing a forum for the exchange of knowledge and the promotion of education, professionalism and integrity.
