What is VAG ODIS Diagnostics?
You may have heard of VAG or ODIS Diagnostics before without fully knowing what it is, or why you have been told that it will help fix your car. Don’t worry as we are here to help. VAG (Volkswagen Audi Group) is the car group that consists of Audi, Volkswagen, SEAT, Škoda and Bentley. ODIS is an acronym for Offboard Diagnosis Information System and it is the software that main dealer garages use.
If your car is any of the makes above and was registered in or after 2014, then it is compatible with ODIS technology. If not, don’t worry, we have the diagnostics tools for all makes and models, but ODIS diagnostics is solely for VAG. This is designed to make the diagnostics and repairs easier for technicians, as ODIS links directly with the manufacturer’s database in Germany. Once connected, the technicians can easily access new software updates, reset service indicators, interpret fault codes, get detailed information on repairs and much more.
A diagnostics test should only take a couple of minutes to complete. Every test starts with the technician plugging in a diagnostic scanner to read any error codes which indicates where the problem is. We can then do more investigative work into that area to get more understanding of the issue, and what fix is required.
As modern cars evolve, so too does their software meaning we at CCM need to ensure we are constantly able to see the latest and most accurate information. ODIS makes this possible for us. We can get instant access to the latest Technical Service Bulletins and Electronic Repair and Workshop Information, direct from the VAG headquarters. This kind of technology is usually only reserved for main dealers however, we have proven ourselves to be another league of independent garage, so we now have all the main dealer capabilities, but at a fraction of the price.
