Magneti Marelli security pass
From the second half of 2017, Fiat Chrysler has installed a Security Gateway System in almost all vehicles. As a result, these vehicles can no longer be read. In order to still be able to offer workshops full diagnosis, Magneti Marelli has developed the Security Pass system, which also works seamlessly with other testers.
The Security Pass can unlock the SGW ECU, providing access to all necessary diagnostic data and communication with all ECUs in the vehicle.
As a result, functions such as reading and deleting the error code memory, making changes to system settings, activating additional functions and service interval reset are possible in the tester. The workshop must register on the FCA service website (www.technicalinformation.fiat.com) and take out a user subscription. The costs are currently one euro for 24 hours.
In this way, security certificates are exchanged via the Internet, allowing full access.
The Magneti Marelli Security Pass system can be used with most other diagnostic devices, provided they support the models below. It is therefore not necessary to purchase a new device.
For vehicle diagnostics, the Security Pass is connected to the vehicle and connected to a PC or laptop via a USB connection. A supplied Y-cable ensures the connection to a diagnostic tester and thus the implementation of all available functions. Once the internet connection is active and the FCA service site is visited, the SGW system can be unlocked. The tester can then, as usual, perform a full diagnosis.
