Digital servicebook
 
WOW! solution in the area of digital servicebook - one way for all manufacturers
 
Many vehicle brands replace the handwritten stamp booklet, in which all service work is recorded, with a "digital service booklet". The digital service book is a centrally managed database in which all maintenance data and service work at the manufacturer's premises is stored and can be called up as required.
 
  • The solution was first integrated in software version 5.00.23 for the German market
  • With software version 5.30.00 we are rolling out the function in Austria, Belgium and France
 
PID diagnosis - Integration of the help texts
 
PID = Parameter Identified Diagnosis as of 5.30.00
 
  • All diagnosis functionalities are created “on the fly” during the contact with the controller
  • Until now (before update version 5.30.00) no help files were provided if no simulation was available
  • As of now the help files for PID diagnosis are integrated
 
FCA SGW-Diagnosis WOW!-Emission customers
 
  • A new "cloud" based wrapper for FCA Security Gateway enables WOW! emission customers to diagnose FCA vehicles equipped with a Security Gateway

   Electric mobility
 
New and advanced models
 
Everyone is talking about "electric mobility". For the last 7 years (5.00.3, 2013), WOW! has been investing a lot of attention and development work in this topic. As things stand today, more than 170 different high-voltage systems can be diagnosed!
 
Work has continued on the model coverage. With the Jaguar I-Pace and the Mercedes EQC, only the currently available all-electric models should be mentioned here as examples. Since no manufacturer is currently launching its models on the market without hybrid capability, it is difficult to provide examples here as there are so many.
 

   Security Gateway Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA)
 
Complete diagnostics with WOW! and FCA
 
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA) started to implement the Security Gateway (SGW) control unit in various vehicles in model year 2018. We have examined the background to this several times in previous Info bulletins.
 
In order to clear fault codes, activate components or enable adjustment functions such as the resetting of service lights, you must purchase a "certificate" from FCA. For this, you need to register with FCA and be connected to the internet during diagnosis.
 
Vehicles affected (as of March 2020)
 

  • Alfa Romeo: Giulia; Stelvio
  • Chrysler: 300 (from MY18); Pacifica (from MY18)
  • Dodge: Challenger (from MY18); Charger (from MY18); Durango (from MY18)
  • Fiat: 500L (from MY17); 500X (from MY19)
  • Fiat Professional: Doblò (from MY19)
  • Jeep: Cherokee (from MY19); Grand Cherokee (from MY18); Grand Commander (from MY19); Renegade (from MY19); Wrangler (from MY18)
  • RAM: 1500 Pick-up (from MY18); Promaster City (from MY18)

The program forwards vehicle information and user data to FCA. Once the data has been checked and a valid certificate obtained, the connection to the vehicle systems is established. This process is carried out in the background. The user only has to enter their account details (user name/password).
 
The connection dialogue to FCA appears automatically as soon as an SGW is detected in the vehicle. In this dialogue box you will find both the link to the FCA homepage and a help file explaining how to create a user account with FCA and how to obtain a certificate.The use of the FCA SGW module is linked to a valid software licence.
 

! Notice !
 
The use of the diagnostic solution in conjunction with the WOW! Emission software is currently not yet possible.
 
The necessary adaptations are currently under development at Fiat Chrysler. Due to the current situation - especially in Italy - it is not yet possible to make a precise statement regarding the final implementation in the WOW! diagnostic software. Please contact your WOW partner in case of need. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
