I guess my question would be....if one had their VSP credentials...why would they want to pay someone to do their programming for them. I would think one would own their own tooling whether it would be OE or J2534. By NASTF backing (or endorsing) OPUS....and not other organizations providing similar service. Would this not be considered collusion? Very interesting??? Just my thoughts here…

Bob, Totally agree! There are many issues that NASTF could help out us existing VSP members with before looking to recruit new members. Looking back on the most recent Ford IDS debacle. There is a lot that could be rectified just with that. There are many issues with almost every manufacturer that could use attention from NASTF that would help existing VSP members do their job more…

We need to get a few things straight here. 1. EVERY SIR has been sent to an OE and is tracked. The only unresolved SIRs right now are all with the same OE and on the same old topic we always have with them. IF an OE does not solve the issue the next course of action is outlined in the MOU. To date there are no issues open with an OE other than the one. The current SIR site will not be fixed…

Question: as a municipal repair shop (local government, in Canada), can we get VSP credentials and can we follow the same application process as everyone else? Thank you
