API Release Notes - March 30th 2017

This release contains the following new API and enhancements:

  • Enhancement to Injection and Ignition API 
  • Enhancement to Starting and Charging API
  • Enhancement to DTC API

Enhancement to both Injection and Ignition API and Starting and Charging API

As part of our focus to improve the quality of the content in our API responses, the response will now include Glow Plug information where available for diesel vehicles. This will include the glow plug “nominal rating”, “activation time” and “part numbers”. The API still has one call method for a given MID.

Enhancement to DTC API

In addition to the DTC API already providing the Probable Cause content for a given DTC, the response now also includes links to the Known Fixes API where we have additional known fixes content available for a given DTC. This can be shown by adding  “known_fixes=true” to the url. Thus providing a more comprehensive response to help troubleshoot the fault codes found by the user.
