Accessing Chrysler SGW vehicles
I have not seen this particular website mentioned here yet, but according to some members in an automotive Facebook group, this site will allow you to access SGW vehicles. (a few claimed they have done it)
Has anyone here signed up? Know who these guys are?
Kieth perkins just did a video of it a few weeks ago
So he did not do video on this site. I thought Id missed it.
All of my compatible aftermarket tools are registered. It is legitimate And you must do it if you want access to SGW vehicles.
Hi Benjamin. Can you clarify which manufacturer(s)? It is important not to paint all with the same brush. Thanks
Hi Rudy: I'm surprised by your post since they are the "official" authenticator for the aftermarket. HTH, Guido
Anthony- Its news to me. Since 2018 vehicles are mostly still in warranty,Ive not had much of reason to dig too much into this. We got a 2018 Chrysler in the other day and called Autel about connecting and they said the only way to do it was to buy their "by-pass" cable. Seems like its not common knowledge in the industry just yet......
We're signed up at the shop. This is operated via Green Hills and will likely be part of future technology like what's being developed and proposed by the Auto Care Association called Secure Vehicle Interface. If you're interested in learning more, I interviewed one of the principal engineers about it for my most recent Torque Factor podcast which you can view here:
This is FCA's official site that manages users who want access to SGW equipped vehicles. You need an account with AutoAuth, plus a compatible aftermarket tool that supports SGW for it all to work.
Worked fine for me. Snap On had to help me with the process (they do their side through Mitchell) but it worked and I have been able to access the few SGW vehicles that the tool is up-to-date enough to access. No one seems to know exactly who AutoAuth is and it bothers me quite a lot that they don't seem to care who I am. They required no documentation of who I was at all; no SS number, no…
I singed up recently to gain access with my Verus. It is $50.00 a year and pretty painless.
Have not needed it yet but good to know it is there. Thanks Rudy!
I signed up last year when my snap on rep showed to me, had some trouble getting it to work in the beginning, reached out for support through snap on but it always fell short. Finally contacted auto auth direct and they sorted out, apparently snap on’s involvement adds some confusion, but once we got it figured out it’s been great. As long as your tool is registered and your on WiFi it…
Rudy, Good question. But if your in the business for the long haul it would it not me more prevalent prudent to purchase Witech and be done with it and give you more functionality and programming procedures. How do you know if any of the AM tooling is up to date on lets say a 2020 vehicle. As you know Snap On updates only twice a year as an example.
Robert- Personally I think the J-box is going to be the default VCI for all manufactures in the near future. Its much cheaper and more streamlined than trying to come up with a new VCI every few years. Chrysler in particular has a horrible history of abandoning their old VCIs in the last 15 years or so. It wouldn't be cost effective for us to buy their latest tooling,IMO. Lately whenever Ive…
Rudy you are aware that what you speak of is already in practice arent ypu?? The R2R law requires all manufacturers too have there OE scan tool software able too be used with a JBox 2018 an newer. Its already here. Yes manufacturers are still making there VCI but otherwise what you are saying already exists.
