BMW Passthru Package
BMW OEM Pass Thru Diagnostics Package

BMW OSS was developed for the Independent Repair Workshops for use on BMW / MINI @ ROLLS ROYCE Vehicles, using the internet with direct access to Munich for Maintenance / Repair & Diagnostics information.

Area covered are:

  • ISTA workshop - this is the main Diagnostic platform for read / clear faults / live data / guided troubleshooting / actuator tests, service functions etc
  • ISTA P - this is used for coding and programming new and existing ECUs on the vehicle adding customer options and retrofitting
  • KEY READING - this is used for reading key / service information / technical campaign information. To be used in conjunction with KeyReader - The KeyReader enables vehicle and service data to be read out from BMW Group ignition keys. The data are output in the Service Advisor application ISPA (ISPA Client / ISPA Light and from 2015 ISPA.Next) and APAS and can be used to create a customer order. Reading a key ( Valid for Reading a key manually ) = €100 / year.
  • AIR - The AIR application provides you with an information search system for the aftersales sector, which allows technical and commercial service data to be displayed in just one system. Searching for information is significantly quicker and easier thanks to the application, allowing you to devote more time to customer care and completing tasks in the workshop.
  • TECH INFO - this gives information on maintenance and repair
  • TECHNICAL CAMPAIGNS - this shows all improvement bulletins and updates needed. usually these fixes are done Free of charge by authorised BMW dealers
  • SERVICE HISTORY - this is used for BMW cars ONLY, introduced from January 2011. After this date BMW vehicles did not have paper service manuals, instead opting to save service information on a central database. This allows the workshop to upload what service has been carried out on the vehicle and give the customer a printout. Amendments must be made within 7 days and can ONLY be changed by the workshop that created the original entry
  • ELECTRONIC PARTS CATALOGUE - This allows the workshop to find part numbers for components needed.

BMW OSS Online Details of what it provides:

ISTA/P Online

Diagnosis, Programming & Coding of BMW & MINI Vehicles via the Internet

For ISTA/P Online, a data interface, power supply, and an Internet connection are required.

An ICOM or the PassThruTool (PTT)” serve as a data interface. The PTT is an interface box 

and fulfills the requirements of the SAE J2534 Standard. It is suitable for BMW and MINI vehicles with OBD-II connection.

With ISTA/P Online, only one vehicle can be processed at any one time

Diagnostic program with vehicle communication from Z3/E361 1, with a Pass Thru Tool (from model year 1996)

Displaying technical information:

  • Service Information (SI)
  • Repair instructions (from E30)
  • Technical data
  • Tightening torques
  • Inspection sheets
  • SI operating fluids
  • SI technology
  • SI diagnosis encoding
  • SI special tools/devices
  • Special tool

You can search via the search criteria document title, document number, and topics. The information you require will be displayed by means of graphics and explanatory texts.

The table gives an overview of the diagnosis tools offered and their range of application.

Wiring Diagram System

The following information is provided for you:

  • Wiring diagrams
  • PIBs
  • Installation locations
  • Connector views
  • Functional descriptions
  • The ability to zoom right in to the smallest details on the wiring diagrams and the linking of the wiring diagrams with further information such as functional descriptions and PIBs are outstanding features
  • The selected information can be printed out at any time in an uncomplicated manner.

NEW ISTA 3 Workshop system

Save time by using  ISTA 3’s performance-optimized, ultra-fast diagnosis - Access BMWi repair documents and diagnose BMWi vehicles - Save OSS credits with the free of charge installation of ISTA 3 – no time tickets needed.

P-Code Module

The P-Code module allows you to search for SAE-standard P-Codes and BMW-specific P-Codes which you can read out from the engine control units using so-called "Generic Scan Tools".

The P-Code module is especially helpful for those users who do not have BMW-specific testing devices, but read out fault codes using "Generic Scan Tools".

The corresponding P-Code can be read out via the vehicle identification number. The P-Code list is available for all vehicles with OBD (for USA) or EOBD connector (for Europe).


The new information research of the AIR application provides you with vehicle relevant technical information and commercial service data in a single system. Searching for information in AIR is easier and faster than in today’s systems and applications.


AIR is an information research network that provides a multitude of different information within one single system. Linked data is the key to accessing this information without changing devices or systems.


Only a one time vehicle identification is required to perform an extensive research

By linking associated information the research for flat rates, parts, defect codes and measures is much easier

Therefore you can quickly find the suitable information for any problem.

All research results can be stored in a basket

Focus on the repair of the vehicle because of minimized research effort.

oem bmw diagnostics.

Our thanks goes to Andrew and the team at Maverick technology for supplying us the genuine BMW diagnostics computer. It is such a great piece of kit that allows us to diagnose and fix all BMW cars up to brand new. The reprogramming facility is exactly what we needed to finish all jobs. It is also easy to use with BMW working out what is needed for the programming and executing the job.
This is an invaluable tool for the modern workshop wanting to fix the latest generation of cars.
Thanks once again to maverick for supplying us with a great bit of kit.
