Delphi launches DS-Flash Pass-Thru package with ECU re-programming
Delphi Product & Service Solutions has launched its new DS-Flash Pass-Thru package at Automechanika Birmingham. The tool provides independent garages with online access to vehicle manufacturer’s websites, enabling workshop to reprogram and update vehicle electronic control units without expensive dealer-only tools and software.
“EU regulations state that vehicle manufacturers are required to ensure that the independent aftermarket is able to access vehicle calibration files for emissions-related Engine Control Units (ECUs) for all cars new to the market from September 2009. The DS-Flash Pass-Thru makes this more attainable than ever before,” says Chad Smith, vice president Delphi Product & Service Solutions EMEA “This innovation can provide independent workshops with the same capability as main dealers, and allows them a cost-effective opportunity to compete. The DS-Flash enhances garages’ abilities to retain business and entice to their workshops new customers that were previously captive to the main dealers.”
Users of the tool can access vital OE technical data, service schedule information and the digital service records that have been adopted by manufacturers. The robust unit is fully compliant with the diagnostic requirements of Vehicle Manufacturers (VMs) and comes complete with J2534 VCI, cables, Battery Support Unit and PC pre-configured for VAG, BMW, General Motors, Toyota and Lexus. It also comes with Delphi’s 12-month support package, which includes a training day and ongoing support via a dedicated technical helpline.
