Overcoming the FCA Firewall

In 2018, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) installed a firewall in their vehicles, known as the Secure Gateway (SGW). FCA covers Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM and Maserati branded vehicles.

FCA’s SGW module prevents non-FCA authorised scan tools from communicating with vehicle systems, other than to read fault codes. To ensure your scan tool can navigate around this Firewall, your tool needs to be registered with FCA.(More details)

As an aftermarket scan tool company, LAUNCH scan tool has an active scan tool license agreement with FCA, so LAUNCH can be provided with this capability. Once the SGW is unlocked through the authentication process, LAUNCH has the same capabilities as it did on non SGW equipped FCA vehicles. The registration is done one time and there is a yearly subscription required. The number of vehicles you can service is unlimited.

Here is some information about Launch scan tool how to registration FCA. Make sure your scan tool APK is updated.
