ASA Launches New OE Information Resource

ASA Launches New OE Information Resource

ASA-OEM-Resource-Center-LogoThe Automotive Service Association (ASA), in conjunction with the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, has launched a new information resource for automotive repairers. The ASA Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Resource website will serve as a consolidated hub for manufacturer-specific scan tool information, calibration and reprogramming updates, training materials and service information. The website was developed by repairers for repairers, with direct input from the manufacturers.

During the Feb. 17 online press conference, Donny Seyfer, ASA chairman, explained that each manufacturer has its own landing page and scan tool page. “As a repairer, finding the information you need can be an art form, in and of itself. With this resource, we’re getting the facts straight from the source – the OEMs. It is our belief that this resource will cut down on the guesswork when it comes to finding accurate, updated information in a timely manner,” said Seyfer.

Following the conference, Dan Gage, director of communications and public affairs for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, said, “The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and its 12 member companies are proud to collaborate with ASA in this effort to assist technicians in improving timely and easy access to needed service and repair information, tools and training resources. This is a holistic online resource dedicated to repair professionals developed and supported by their repair professional peers.”
