Locating original equipment manufacturer-approved high-voltage tools for Porsche

June 26, 2023

When researching procedures for disabling a high-voltage (HV) vehicle, you may notice that many of the procedures require the use of specific tools. Some of them are original equipment manufacturer (OEM)-specific tools or scan tools. Often identifying and locating where to purchase these specific tools can be difficult.

Tools and equipment needed are identified in vehicle-specific service manuals. For instance, Porsche HV tools can be found using the following steps:

  1. Go to porsche.snapon.com.
  2. Click “Online Catalog” (on drop-down menu to the left).
  3. Click “High Voltage Vehicle” to expand the path tree.
  4. Click “High Voltage Vehicle”.

This category provides tools like personal protective equipment, specialty adapters, HV digital volt ohm meters (DVOM), insulated tools, and more.

When disabling Porsche high-voltage systems, the use of a scan tool and an HV DVOM may be required. Any tools needed for disabling the high-voltage system are typically specified in the disable procedure.

Always follow OEM procedures when repairing HV vehicles. Make sure to check procedures for the required tools to help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair. Learn best practices when it comes to electric and hybrid vehicle safety procedures with I-CAR Canada EV courses.
