Service Programming System (SPS) of ECU's *

Many of the Electronic Control Units (ECU) are reprogrammable so that the software running on those units can be replaced by other software.
A new Service ECU can be programmed with the appropriate software as well. TIS2Web allows the transfer of new software to those ECUs using a Diagnostic Tool.
To start, ECU data is read out with a Diagnostic Tool and then transferred to TIS2Web. The new program will be selected and transferred to the Diagnostic Tool. Then, the programming of the ECU can be started.

VCI Request for Retrofitting/Reconfiguration

As of May 2016, the VCI code for some "Retrofits/Reconfigurations" will be charged according to "SPS Price Categories" documented in the TIS2Web Newsletter - SPS section.
The VCI process has been adapted and will follow these steps:

  • In the TIS2Web VCI request form, these retrofit/reconfiguration options will be followed by a 'Price Category'. Please select the correct option.
  • Enter your dealer information and submit the VCI request. Please be careful to enter the correct e-mail address.
  • Your VCI request form is being transferred to us and our team checks your input.
  • Before calculating the VCI code, we will send you an e-mail summarizing all the information. In that e-mail we explain to you which and how to buy the correct VCI Request - Price Category subscription in the portal GME Infotech.  Do not buy any subscription in advance as we may advise you to buy a different one.
  • Once we have your written proof that the needed subscription VCI Request - Price Category is paid, we will send you the VCI code.

Note that your VCI Request - Price Category is only valid for 24 hours.


Feature Software - with additional cost

As of May 2016, some controllers offer the following Software Versions:

  • Regular Software : this software is free of charge.
  • Feature Software - with additional cost : this software includes advanced features and therefore involves additional cost.

When you select "Feature Software - with additional cost" and proceed with "Next", you will get the following Error Message

E6798:  Please refer to the newsletter for more information.

OK

To download the selected software, you first need to buy the corresponding subscription "Feature Software - with additional cost" in this portal.

To do so, proceed with the following steps:

  • Exit TIS2Web
  • Login with your account to the 'GME-Infotech Portal'.
  • In the Tab "Subscriptions", select the option "Renew subscription", select your Salesmake and navigate to the subscription Feature Software - with additional cost
  • Select it and press "Ok" to follow the purchasing process.
  • Once you have subscribed and finished the purchasing process, you will have the following new subscription added to your subscription list: Feature Software - with additional cost. Mind that it is only valid for one single download of this software within 24 hours.
  • When you want to download the Feature Software - with additional cost in TIS, it is important to start TIS from the previously added subscription: Feature Software - with additional cost. Only this gives you access to TIS2Web with the necessary rights to program this software. Starting TIS from any other subscription will refuse access to the software and comes up again with the above mentioned error message.
  • Start 'Service Programming System (SPS)', select the controller and the option Feature Software - with additional cost and start the download within the remaining time of your subscription.
  • After you finished downloading the Feature Software - with additional cost to your USB device, be aware of the post-programming instructions given at the end. You may print them.
  • Proceed with the USB Copy on this specific car and perform all related programming steps on other ECUs. If there is some specific software version, you can easily identify it looking for Software only for XYZ Feature Software during a software selection.
  • Once you have performed all related programming steps, logoff and continue working with your standard TIS subscription.

Note: If you want to program one more Feature Software - with additional cost, you first need to run the above steps again.

 

Security Access *

'Security Access' prevents unauthorized programming of vital functions in vehicles.

Some of the programming functions that use the Tech 2 are inaccessible without the enabling through TIS2Web. Some of the inaccessible programming functions that need 'Security Access' for their performance are:

  • Programming of the immobilizer
  • Programming of the transponder key

In order to perform these programming procedures it is necessary to get security access from TIS2Web.
