VW Audi Skoda Seat erWin ODIS Factory Services


Volkswagen and Audi are part of a network that uses the server called erWin as the source for all coding and software for their cars. The acronym stands for Electronic Repair and Workshop INformation. Reputedly, the little guy standing next to the W in the erWin logo refers to a German fellow, possibly Erwin Komenda, the designer of the original Beetle body. He worked for Ferdinand Porsche from 1936 to 1961. At the server level, erWin provides us with a variety of up-to-date information and services:

Workshop Manuals by Volkswagen AG
Repair Information, Self-Study and Training Programs
Maintenance Tables, Vehicle Data and Field Measures
Continuous Data Updates
Access to the Offboard Diagnostic Information System Service


ODIS stands for Offboard Diagnostic Information System. The erWin System is the source of all the special services normally only found at a dealership. ODIS is the service through which the erWin information and services are applied, kind of like a very high tech scan tool. UPKEY SERVICE is fully authorized and linked to erWin through the Factory Server via UsbKey. And these services are available at a fraction of the cost at a dealership.

Key Programming and Immobilizer Programming

Occasionally, a customer just looses a key. More commonly, someone buys a used car, and it only comes with one key. It is highly recommended to have at least 2 keys, and preferable to have a valet key for emergencies as well. also If all keys was lost and there is no key to copy, then a new key come must be same cpu as the dealer keys. And that new key will require being recoded to the car.With UPKEY SERVICE, You’re able to perform Key Programming service including add keys, disable keys, unlock keys. All be done via OBD Port directly. No need disassembly immobilizer box and soldering chips, no need PIN Code…

Radio Codes

On the instance that one’s battery goes completely dead, or just gets disconnected by some unwary shop or tow truck driver, the radio must be recoded before it will work again. Many customers, especially Second Owners, don’t have the code to bring the radio alive again. With UPKEY SERVICE, you can get that code through the erWin network easily.

Diagnostics and Repairs

ODIS is a great diagnostic parallel, and erWin provides the capability to perform some of the final steps that would normally require a trip to the dealer, sometimes on a tow truck. With erWin we can also install all the software and ECU updates called for during a recall for reflashing any Electronic Control Unit. ODIS is also the best and sometimes the only source for Vehicle Data, Workshop Manuals, Electrical Circuit Diagrams, Emergency Field Actions and Technical Product and Systems Information.
