Do the right thing and take the time to get your lock smith ID, fill out the form and you should find your local dealership to be cooperative. Read all about it here and check out the new TRP Form here on our site: Important Docs and Links

TRP was once again a hot topic of discussion at the latest NASTF Vehicle Security Meeting in Palm Springs. I did a presentation for the group and others presented some excellent material. You can read about it here:

Representatives from Mercedes were asked to update us on the current status of TRP parts as well as give us an idea about the 722.9 valve bodies and TCU repair kits. Although they were given ample notice about the meeting nobody from Mercedes participated. We even went as far as sending a text message after the meeting started with call in details but it was simply ignored.

At this point I will begin writing letters again and re-double my efforts with industry to try to come to a sort of resolution. It has been a very difficult time for me since there are lots of shops outside of our small circle of Mercedes specialists who simply don’t get it and don’t see a problem. They dismiss this issue as simply a high line manufacturer choosing to screw its customers. Since they are not directly affected they just blow off the issue and do little to back me up. Well it will hit them all like a ton of bricks very soon. You see it didn’t take long for other manufacturers to realize the value of controling the parts, the software, and the delivery of software to the parts. Just call them security related, lock them to the vehicles…..you get the rest.
