Bosch Scan Tools Are Certified to Access SGW Module

Nov. 14, 2019

Bosch aftermarket diagnostic scan tools have been certified by FCA U.S. to access the Secure Gateway Module (SGW) on many 2018 and newer FCA vehicles.

Bosch Automotive Service Solutions Inc. says the SGW unlock feature for its lineup of ADS 325 and ADS 625 scan tools will be with the forthcoming ADS 4.0 software update.

SGW was developed to keep vehicle communication networks secure and protect electronic control modules from being exposed to potential hacking. Bosch ADS 325 and ADS 625 diagnostic scan tools will still connect under dashboard to the 16 pin DLC and obtain security credentials through Auto Authentication Authority (AutoAuth) to access the vehicle-mounted Secure Gateway Module. Applicable FCA vehicles include many Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo models.
