Equipment and Tool Institute launches J-2534 market research study

In an effort to assist our members in bringing new and improved equipment and tools to the marketplace, The Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) has launched a series of Market Research Projects. The current survey is an update to research done in 2009 and covers Flash Reprogramming, or J2534 as it is also known.

The organization is surveying automotive repair facilities in an effort to find out more about their familiarity with and use of flash reprogramming tools and any new information involved with flash reprogramming. ETI will use this research to help all segments of the automotive industry provide aftermarket shops with better flash reprogramming solutions.

There will be a presentation on the findings of ETI’s Market Research Study at ToolTech 2013 in San Diego, Calif. April 23-25, 2013 and DVD’s with the complete study information including spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and documents will be made available to all attendees.

This survey can only be taken online.

Previous Market Research Studies have included J2534 Reprogramming, TPMS, Telematics, Collision Repair, A/C Service, Hybrid and Battery Service which are available on the ETI website at
