AAPEX session to highlight OEM info for techs

The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) will host a presentation on emphasizing the value of OEM technical information websites for technicians working outside franchised dealerships.

It will be delivered as part of its Fall 2017 General Meeting at AAPEX on Wednesday, Nov. 1. Called, “The Most Underused OEM Service Info Resources,” it will familiarize attendees with the 40 light vehicle and heavy duty OEMs that provide service information resources for access by technicians outside their franchise dealership. It will help independent technicians realize the full value of information provided on any one of the OEM technical information websites.

There will also be two other sessions from the NASTF: “TechForce Foundation is on the Road to Great Techs,” will teach attendees about a co-ordinated solution for the issue around a shortage of qualified technicians. “Changes are Coming to the SAE J1962 DLC,” will discuss the simple 16-pin data link and what’s in store for the future. Since 1996, all new light vehicles in the American marketplace have connected to the outside world with this data port, but with the progress of advanced vehicle technology, change is inevitable.
