Snap-on Releases Pass Thru Assistant
Aug. 20, 2020—Snap-on introduces a new Pass Thru Assistant (PTA) that expands automotive repair and collision technicians' capabilities. The PTA was designed as a "true turn-key remote solution that can be used by any technician or shop," according to the press release.
The PTA can reprogram domestic, Asian, and European vehicles from Kia to Ford to BMW. The PTA was created in order to make it easier for repairers to keep the vehicles in the shop, finish the job correctly, and increase profits and customer satisfaction.
The PTA kit contains a Windows tablet PC, J2534 device, 4G modem and a 90-amp battery maintainer. The PTA simplifies the reprogramming process. According to the press release, it's as easy as "just book an appointment, plug in the kit and power it up."
