The Euro 5 Standard: Manufacturer's data becomes accessible

Since 2009, the Euro 5 Standard has required that vehicle manufacturers provide technical repair information via their online portals also for all independent workshops. Original manufacturer data for diagnosis, service, repair and maintenance has been available to independent workshops since then.

Independent workshops benefit

Customer jobs that previously had to be assigned to contract workshops can now be handled directly by independent workshops: service and repair from oil changes to troubleshooting and configuration and reprogramming of control units can be completed on-site in their entirety and across brands – using the original manufacturer data and information.

Use of PassThru gives your workshop the following capabilities, among others:

  • Creation of an electronic service booklet
  • Teaching of components (exception: flexible trailer coupling from VAG)
  • Coding of keys

Use of PassThru in the workshop

To use the online portals of the vehicle manufacturers, it is necessary to have a communication module such as the new KTS generation with PassThru interface to SAE J2534. With the Bosch PassThru software and the software from the respective vehicle manufacturer, it is possible to use the original information from the manufacturer for diagnosis in independent workshops.
