MAKING TECHNICAL DATA UNDERSTANDABLE

Crash Data Retrieval

The Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) System is capable of imaging both pre-impact and post-impact data from most vehicles. As a result of CFR 49 Part 563, most vehicle manufacturers are equipped to store crash data that can later be retrieved. General Motors first allowed their vehicles to be imaged in 2000. Some vehicles are so equipped starting in 1995.

Below is a link of the current CDR Vehicle List by year of downloadable vehicles. Locate the appropriate cable for desired year and scroll down to the bottom of the page to identify available data for a specific vehicle.
