Plugging in to the aftermarket’s need for EV Servicing Solutions

By autotech-nath on December 18, 2022

Using its OEM expertise, Delphi Technologies provides independents with the tools and training required to compete with franchised dealers for EV servicing.

Delphi’s DS180 BlueTech diagnostic tool is compatible with over 85% of the mainstream electric vehicle parc and covers more than 60 hybrid and electric vehicle models, giving technicians the ability to read fault codes and view live data for key modules such as the invertor, charger, motor and battery management system. There’s also the capability to perform special functions, such as recalibration following reduction gear or motor replacement. The tool also boasts new integrations over its predecessor, such as CAN FD, multiple CAN channels, and DoIP (Diagnostics over Internet Protocol).

Of course, having the right tool for the job also requires the right knowledge to use it. While the DS180 BlueTech qis designed to be simple to use, there are a series of video tutorials on the Delphi Technologies Academy – the brand’s comprehensive e-learning platform. A dedicated EV/hybrid section includes a wide selection of courses and tutorials on everything from working with voltage and having the correct PPE/CPE to testing high-voltage insulation and the safety steps that must be adhered to when working on an electrified vehicle.
