TEXA updates to AutoAuth certification for FCA Secure Gateway Access

May 4, 2023
Repairers can activate their AutoAuth account to easily unlock the SGW Module on 2017-up Chrysler and Fiat vehicles.

The Secure Gateway (SGW) acts as a firewall to block unauthorized access and manipulation of vehicle networks and vital systems.

FCA says the SGW was developed not to restrict access to diagnostic data but rather to restrict “the ability of non-registered and non-authenticated users to perform intrusive diagnostics such as bidirectional controls.”

Beyond the prevention of bidirectional capability, which include calibrations, relearns, and actuations, even the simple act of clearing a code is denied. TEXA previously provided an internal software paid service for Secure Gateway Access (SGA), now migrating to the easier-to-manage AutoAuth authentication service.

TEXA IDC5 software now supports easier access to the SGW module to perform restricted actions by registering with AutoAuth.

Shops can register through AutoAuth’s Internet-based registration portal for $50 a year. Up to six users can register under this initial fee, with additional users able to register for an additional nominal fee.

The next step is for the shop to register its TEXA software, up to 100 accounts, on the site.

To complete the AutoAuth to use with the TEXA IDC5 software, ensure the IDC5 software coverage is active, or update by purchasing additional coverage thru your authorized tool dealer.

Shops can register the AutoAuth account and confirm access in three easy steps: account, activation, and access.

  • Authorized OEM access account registration – validate individual user and workshop accounts.
  • Confirm TEXA diagnostic platform – approved credentials auto stored in TEXA IDC5 software.
  • Immediate authorized SGA – management of account use for vehicle communication.
