The service, integrated within the IDC5 software and included in the TEXPACK subscription, allows complete access to Volkswagen Group vehicles, with the possibility of unlimited unlocking of protected control units, and intervening in an authenticated, quick and simple way.
The growing connectivity of vehicles has led to a major change in the automotive world, with an increasing number of them equipped with one or more protected control units for reasons related to cyber security. The most recent of the Volkswagen Group, like those of other manufacturers, have implemented a system of protection from the outside that prevents connection with the electronic control units on board and the usual diagnosis and repair activities by independent mechanics.
TEXA is collaborating profitably with the manufacturers, to ensure that all its mechanics can carry out the diagnostic operations without complications. Thanks to this great commitment, starting from the recently released IDC5 CAR 76 software update, it is now possible to carry out interventions in an authenticated, rapid and safe way, even on vehicles of the German manufacturer equipped with protected control units, belonging to the brands: Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Cupra, Skoda, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Bentley and Lamborghini.
To do this, simply subscribe to TEXPACK CAR and create a personal account through the myTEXA portal (one for each technician who will have to work on the vehicles). It is a simple and intuitive guided procedure, which in a few minutes leads to the creation of the profile and the validation of the digital identity. Once this simple procedure has been completed, the mechanic can use the IDC5 CAR software to carry out all the diagnostic operations completely and without limits, even in the presence of protected control units.
“Volkswagen Group vehicles – explains Igino De Lotto, Marketing Manager of TEXA – represent around 25% of the vehicles registered in Europe in the last five years*. We are talking about a very large market share for mechanics who, thanks to our new solution, can now cover without any problems, ensuring customers an even more complete assistance service”.
