Specialist Equipment, Part 1

Part of being a specialist is having the brand-specific software for diagnostics and programming. This piece of equipment is not a ‘scanner’ – it’s a powerful laptop running software made by the manufacturer (BMW, Audi, Mercedes) specifically for their cars. Given the cost and the special training needed to use the software and meaningfully interpret the results, traditionally only dealers have had access to this equipment. Now you can #ditchthedealer and have us use this software for accurate diagnostics and up-to-date programming. This 2011 BMW 328xi (E90) came to us with the TMPS light on, the exclamation point in the flat tire. Diagnosis pointed to the need for a new TMPS module (the RDC control unit, as it’s called). Any time a module is changed, the electronics in the car need to me made aware of it, and the module also needs programming. We have the capability to do this in-house.
