Bosch launches advanced odomoter fraud beater in UAE

The device enables reading of mileage data stored at a vehicle’s different control units to avoid possible odometer manipulations

Bosch has launched its most advanced ECU multifunctional tester – Bosch KTS 250 in the UAE. The device enables reading of mileage data stored at a vehicle’s different control units to avoid possible odometer manipulations.

According to Bosch, it allows automotive businesses and experts to comparing the data with the mileage shown on the odometer, “they can easily determine whether the odometer mileage is plausible or if it differs from the other values. This can have a significant influence on the vehicle’s current value in cases of used vehicle valuations, leasing return or even for expert reports concerning the vehicle value. It allows insurance companies to include this test into their damage assessment or even to ensure compliance with the contractually agreed annual mileage.”

In most cases, a vehicle’s mileage is not only stored at the odometer on the instrument cluster at the vehicle’s dashboard, but also at a large variety of different electronic control units the vehicle is equipped with, explained Bosch.

“Even the seat memory or the park assist control unit can store information on the vehicle mileage. Throughout the last years, modern vehicles have been equipped with a continuously growing number of control units. As a result, the actual mileage of today’s vehicles is often stored at different sources simultaneously.

“Once the Bosch KTS 250 diagnostic tester has been connected to the vehicle by means of the OBD cable, it allows reading out the actual values of the control units and the fault memory. The new KTS 250 mileage readout function creates a list of the individual mileage values stored at the different control units. Afterwards, wireless network connection can be used to print the diagnostic protocol sending it to the workshop network printer or to send it by e-mail – as an attachment and right from KTS 250.”
