Renault provides access to Renault InfoTech under the link www.infotech.renault.com. Registration is a requirement for use. Following login, users are offered technical information and (remote) training courses on different subjects, such as diagnostics, at a charge.
The "Diagnostic - Electronic repairs" menu contains the options Reprogramming and automatic configuration.
Reconfiguration is offered for Euro 5 or Euro 6 vehicles and automatic configuration is possible for certain Euro 5 or Euro 6 vehicle (e.g. Laguna 3, Mégane 3, Master 3, etc.).
In the "Test your VIN" menu, Renault offers a free check based on the VIN number as to whether the vehicle is currently supported.
Before the actual execution (either reprogramming or automatic configuration), the following steps must be carried out:
The user receives a PIN number and then a USB dongle by mail.
Refer to the web page for the price of the "Renault electronic" certificate for two years.
After the installation, the program has to be executed, the USB dongle connected and the PIN number entered in order to copy the certificate onto the USB dongle.
The fee for the reprogramming module can be found on the web page. The module can be updated in the course of? a year as of the purchase date, or can be downloaded again.
For each reprogramming or calibration operation per ECU, users acquire a token (i.e. 1 token = 1 x reprogramming operation or 1 x automatic configuration). The price of the token is stated on the web page.
The range of vehicles and ECUs that can be reprogrammed is defined by Renault. In addition to the Bosch information, the instructions of the vehicle manufacturer must also be observed.
The Renault application only supports the installation of one interface module (e.g. KTS) per PC. If the user installs more than one interface module (Bosch KTS and a VCI from another supplier), the application reports an error. The Renault application does not support the use of a proxy server. When starting the Renault application in conjunction with the Bosch VCI package on a Panasonic Toughbook, the PC can no longer be operated. Bosch is currently cooperating with Renault to solve this problem. A second PC has to be used at present as a remedy.
