The portal was developed for full cross-browser compatibility, i.e. to work regardless of the system used to connect to the Internet (e.g. Internet Explorer or Google Chrome) but it contains referenced items, i.e. from other FCA Internet portals or third parties.
Perfect operation and visibility of the differentiated contents cannot be guaranteed for any browser: in some cases, the content can be perfectly operational only if Internet Explorer is used.
FCA in all cases is working to ensure the full cross-browser compatibility of all its portals.

All the graphic symbols on the page allow to connect to the free download area of the plug-ins needed to correctly view some Technical Information website contents.
The page of the company that owns the concerned software will appear.

10. Easy Access

This section allows easy access to all functions of ISO 18541 already implemented before the obligation to comply with the standard.
The list may not be aligned with the final version of the standard (not translated in all languages yet) and may not implement all items: FCA reserves the right to integrate and edit all parts which do not comply as soon as the standard will become mandatory.

The operating logic of the Easy Access menu is:

  1. The first level of the tree shows the Use Cases groupings.
  2. The second level (where present) shows the single Use Cases of a group.
  3. The last level shows the implementation methods in Technical Information.

An explanatory text (4) of the selected level appears again in the window by the right of the Easy Access.

The last level provides the sequence (5) of the steps to be performed in the various Technical Information sections: print it or copy it as a guide for using the required function.


11. Models/languages available

This page provides information on the number of models on the website organised by Repair and Maintenance Information type.
This is because FCA does not have a single database containing all the information which must be provided by law. The information is available in different environment which are not connected to each other.

The main environments are:

  • Repair manuals: these can be purchased for one brand or any combination of brands for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 month, 1 year. Most of the documentation is available in XML format but PDF files generated by scanning paper documents may be available for some older models.
  • Flat rate manuals: these are included in the previous option. Format is XML again (also for the older models).
  • On-board documentation: accessible free of charge after logging in. The PDF files can be browsed with search functions.
  • Spare Parts Catalogues: only available for multiple brands for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 month, 1 year. The documentation is available in XML format.

A link is provided to the Maserati portal for the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione special series which contains Repair and Maintenance Information of the model. A specific subscription must be purchased to access the website.

The address of the website corresponding to this is provided for CHRYSLER, JEEP and DODGE. FCA is working to set up a direct link like the one provided for Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione.


12. Services offered

12.1. On-board documentation

The eLUM portal is external to the Technical Information site and therefore its content is visible in a differentiated manner.
Functions can only be guaranteed if Internet Explorer is used as browser.

  1. Select the language and the country of the documentation you are looking for.

Furthermore, access is possible by brand or model (2) or by VIN (3) or by number plate (in countries in which the number plate is univocally linked to the vehicle).

Enter a check code must be entered to confirm that the action is being carried out by a human operator.

You can browse or download the on-board vehicle documentation after having accessed the model.

12.2. Training courses

The WEB Academy portal is external to the Technical Information site and therefore its content is visible in a differentiated manner.
Functions can only be guaranteed if Internet Explorer is used as browser.

To access, indicate your country (1) and access the specific area (2) after having logged a specific request in the Contact Area of the Support menu.
You will find a menu (3) on the WEB Academy portal showing how to sign up (4) for online and traditional training courses, the latter held in a FCA training centre.
The list of training centres (5) is available on the website.

You can access online training courses after having signed up.
Use the WEB Academy portal Help Desk for more information.

12.3. Technical Help Desk

Technical Service Operations is an FCA task force dedicated to solving the most critical vehicle repair cases.
Technical Support experts help repairers solve very complex issues. They are also in charge of detecting early signs of potential product problems by means of a nationwide network located in all countries where FCA operates.

The following requirements are essential to access the service to ensure that the operator can understand the answers provided by the technical help desk, perform the necessary operations and access the necessary instruments/documents:

  1. Being a first or second level technical expert or a diagnosis expert. This title is obtained by completing a WEB Academy training process, but the operator can contact a training centre and perform an assessment test to demonstrate that the person has the necessary skills.
    The service is also available for operators who are currently attending a training course to obtain this qualification.
  2. Having a wiTECH2.0. This is the official diagnostic tool of the FCA network. This requirement is essential because Technical Support operators can indicate exactly which tool functions to use and, in extreme cases, take direct control of the tool directly from operations headquarters.
  3. Having a valid, active subscription to Technical Documentation. This is also an essential requirement because the documentation provides valid assistance for particularly complex operations or to correctly identify electric connections.

The user must fill in the online form, add the required attachments and sent it.
The request will be sent to FCA staff in the relevant country, so that the user can be contacted by an assistant who speaks their language, following a check on the three requisites.

12.4. Download data

Download Manager is a dynamic archive and content is available for authorised users only, i.e.:

  1. Operators who request to download official FCA genuine spare parts price lists. Send your request to the Contacts Areas indicating that you want this information.
  2. Business-to-Business (B2B) operators who have signed a commercial agreement with FCA for republishing Repair and Maintenance Information for FCA vehicles. Rights for republishing Repair Manuals, Repair Flat Rate Manuals and Spare Parts Catalogues can be requested.

Data download rules are supplied separately to the user when the commercial agreement is signed or in case of Spare Parts Price List downloads when the user is informed that the service is active.

12.5. VCI validation

VCI Validator is a test environment exclusively available to Business-to-Business (B2B) operators who have signed a commercial agreement with FCA for validating a MVCI ISO 22900-2 module with the goal of guaranteeing compatibility with ECU Manager and Examiner Manager, updating applications, and configuring and initialising electronic components of FIAT, ALFA ROMEO, LANCIA, FIAT PROFESSIONAL and ABARTH vehicles.

The test execution rules are supplied separately to the user after having signed the commercial agreement once the user has been informed that the service is active.

12.6. Service Contracts

Only for users with Camper Van Outfitter profile there is a function on the Buy - Buy Service Contract menu for buying and selling to the end customer. For more information on the buying and sales proposition process, see 14.5 Service Contracts.


13. Contact area

The contact area is the communications point between Technical Information users and administrators.

It may be used for an array of functions:

  • Solving subscription-related issues: impossibility of using the subscription due to unavailability of the website (inactivity or errors).
  • Solving user data-related issues: problems for updating personal data.
  • Starting up B2B negotiations: for publishing or using FCA material in your products and/or on your portals.
  • Requesting access to spare part lists.
  • Other problems.

The choice of the topic is fundamental for rapid request management: the expert team which receives the request is based on the chosen topic.
Indicating topics which do not reflect the content of the request may cause them to be sent to a member of staff who is not in the position to solve the issue and who may not know the correct person to contact for the actual matter in hand.
Your request could consequently be ignored or require more time to be received, examined and solved.

The user will receive a response directly in the contact area of the site.

The contact area is structured as follows:

  1. The number of messages present and the possibility of sending new messages is shown on the first line on the left.
  2. The current folder (inbox or sent) is shown on the next line, with the filter option to show on the unread messages or all the messages.
  3. Other symbols are used to identify messages to be sent, received, to be read, forwarded or answered.
  4. Click on a message to read it and see any attachments in the area on the right.

If you decide to write a new message or display the detail of a message in the box on the right, it opens a writing interface with the following structure:

  1. The messages can be selected on the right similarly as illustrated above.

Various actions can be performed on the messages on the right:

  1. Write a new message or respond to a message received.
  2. Set a message that you have already been read as not read.
  3. Delete the message.
  1. One or more attachments can be added or removed while writing and before sending.


14. Buy

The purchasing procedure is rather complex and covers various types of products and purchasing methods.

All profiles can buy documentation using the Buy subscriptions function. For Camper Van Outfitters only the Buy Service Contracts function is also available.
  1. Online Technical Documentation: the set of Technical Documentation, Spare Parts Catalogues and Flat Rate Manuals which may be browsed online and filtered by specific model.
  2. Offline Technical Documentation: this is the offline version of the products listed above. An active online subscription is needed to update it.
  3. Single Transaction ECU Packages: to purchase a specific programming/configuration package (using a VCI ISO 22900-2 or SAE J2534) for a ECU of a specific VIN. A specific process is needed.
  4. Time-Limited ECU Packages: to purchase a time-limited subscription for running initialisation procedures (with a VCI ISO 22900-2 or SAE J2534) on electronic components.
  5. wiTECHPlus Packages: to purchase a yearly subscription for using the FCA diagnosis equipment.
