NASTF to Launch Reprogramming Service
March 29, 2021—The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) will be launching the new Assisted Immobilizer Reprogramming (AIR) service the week of April 5, according to a press release.
The service will allow background-checked employees to request a secure assisted immobilizer reprogramming sessions with a NASTF contracted service provider when shops need to replace or reprogram modules that involve a vehicle’s security systems. Previously sessions required a NASTF Vehicle Security Credential or the use of tools that can carry cybersecurity risks.
Through the service, the NASTF has created a streamlined process allowing repair shop employees to apply to be background checked as their business’ security technician.
