Snap-on Introduces Nissan Secure Gateway Access For its Scan Tools

Snap-on is pleased to announce that Wi-Fi enabled diagnostic scan tools on current software have direct access to Nissan secure gateway modules. This is a new addition to the OEMs already offered, including Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA®) and Volkswagen Audi Group (VAG®).

Snap-on worked closely with Nissan to develop a solution that uses Nissan’s Aftermarket Scan Tool User Management and Tool Registration system known as AUTOAUTH to allow Wi-Fi enabled diagnostic platforms using current software to perform secure gateway functions. Nissan secure gateway compliant solutions require device and user registration through AUTOAUTH. If you already have an AutoAuth account you will need to add Nissan in AutoAuth and then update your Snap-on Technician profile to add Nissan to your list of connected OEM’s. 

See our video to learn how to enable Nissan through a Snap-on® tool using Security Link™, a uniform solution for secured vehicle systems access.

Access to Secure Volkswagen® Audi® Group vehicles now available on Snap-on Diagnostic Platforms

We are excited to share the news that Snap-on® Wi-Fi enabled platforms, running current software will have Secure Gateway access for Volkswagen Audi Group (VAG) vehicles from January 24th 2024.

Customers, who have the latest software, and have completed the registration process will be able to access VAG’s secure systems and complete diagnostic and repair procedures. We believe this addition to the manufacturers we support through our Security Link services will greatly benefit our customer’s diagnostic capabilities for VAG vehicles. Customers will need to add VAG to their Technician Profile account. Follow the instructional videos on the main page that will show you how.
