COLLEYVILLE, Texas (June 2, 2014) — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) is extending an offer for members to subscribe to Mopar’s TechAuthority Online at what it’s calling “a huge discount.”
ASA members who missed the initial sign-up deadline are now eligible to enroll for a 10-month subscription to receive TechAuthority access through May 4, 2015, the trade group said, with an activation date of July 2, 2014. The cost for the 10-month, full-access subscription is $100. ASA said members must sign up for the benefit by June 30.
“We’ve had a tremendously positive response to this unprecedented ASA benefit. So much so, we had to find a way to make it available to more of our members based on demand,” said Dan Risley, ASA president and executive director. “We are continuing to seek similar member benefits with other car manufacturers. As our members have shown us, they value offers like this that directly affect their bottom line.”
Individual 12-month subscriptions to the site normally sell for $1,800, while a 30-day subscription sells for $250, according to Colleyville-based ASA.
Mopar’s TechAuthority Online can be used to access diagnostics, flash/reprogramming files, wiring system diagrams, parts catalogs and more. However, ASA noted that the StarSCAN tool and StarMOBILE Desktop Application were superseded by the wiTECH system beginning in 2009. Starting June 10, 2014, StarMOBILE Desktop Client Application and the StarSCAN Tool will no longer be supported for flash downloads in TechAuthority. If using either of these tools, a subscription for flash process will no longer be supported.
To take advantage of the special TechAuthority offer, ASA members should call Terri Ruppert at ASA headquarters from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday or from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday Central Time at 800-272-7467, ext. 361, or send an email to ASAspecials@ASAshop.org.
To qualify for the Mopar offer, ASA said members must be in good standing and pay the $100 10-month subscription fee in full prior to the deadline. The annual Mopar subscription will be activated July 2 and will expire May 4, 2015.
