About product

Daimler Truck Diagnostics PassThru is our Mercedes-Benz truck diagnosis solution for independent workshops. The software runs on any workshop PC and commercially available Pass Thru equipment.

What does Daimler Truck Diagnostics PassThru have to offer?

Daimler Truck Diagnostics PassThru is the diagnosis software for standard PCs, made specifically for independent operators.

Your benefits at a glance:
  • Vehicle diagnosis possible using standard PCs and commercially available Pass Thru equipment (SAE J2534 standard)
  • Virtually complete diagnostics scope (from quick tests to flashing and clearing the fault memory) with the exception of technical limitations linked to Pass Thru devices of the SAE J2534 Pass Thru standard
  • For control units in Euro VI-certified commercial vehicle series
Important information:

To be able to use Daimler Truck Diagnostics software, you need to apply for additional diagnosis user rights. A distinction is made between two types of user rights:


  • Daimler Truck Diagnostics Standard Diagnostics Role (for diagnosis users without flash authorization, in example for reading fault memories)
  • Daimler Truck Diagnostics Flash Role (corresponds to the former XENTRY Flash user)

Please use one of the following options:

Daimler Truck Diagnostics Standard Diagnostics Role:

Every diagnosis user must independently request the Standard Diagnosis rights via UMAS and run through the one-off identification process. It may also be necessary for the market-specific ISP support to create the user in ALICE if they do not yet have a user ID.

Daimler Truck Diagnostics Flash Role
  • User already has Flash rights: Every Flash user must independently go through the one-off identification process at   UMAS

  • User does not have Flash rights: User must request Daimler Truck Diagnostics Flash Role through the market-specific channel and go through the one-off identification process at   UMAS

Once your role was assigned, you have to download the basic setup of DTDPT to generate the hardware ID. This can be downloaded via:  

To purchase the one-year license, we will need to verify that your company is working in the automotive sector. This check-up will be performed manually and can take up to several weeks.

The processing time when purchasing the time credits can exceed one day. We recommend that you buy time credits in advance to avoid waiting times.

Time credit options will be available once Daimler Truck AG service activate your yearly license shortly after the purchase. If you already have an active DTDPT license, you don’t need to purchase a new license. You can directly buy time credits using the hardware ID of your setup.

Did you already know that…?

The validity of time credits begins to expire at the start of use.

A credit unit retains its validity following the end of the diagnosis session or after having changed vehicles until it has expired. Time credit purchased in error or that is no longer required cannot be returned or refunded. Any time credit that has not been used or activated once the contract has expired cannot be refunded. However, credit is transferred if you extend the contract.
