Programming With SAE J2534 Tops Nov. 2 NASTF General Meeting
Aftermarket technical instructors are finding an alarming number of advanced service technicians who have already purchased an SAE J2534 vehicle interface device, but have yet to use it in the profitable business of module programming. To address this unfortunate waste of valuable resources, the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) will present "Take the Box Outta' the Box: How to configure your J-device and get started using it" on Nov. 2, during its Fall 2016 General Meeting. The meeting is a featured event in the AAPEX Service Professionals Program at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
The session will consist of a presentation, "Installing the OEM's SAE J2534" by Drew Technologies' Vice President, Brian Herron; and be followed by a panel of OEM experts who will discuss "Uses and Limitations of the SAE J2534 tool". For more information and to attend, visit:
