Step 1: Reading the ECM
The original software is read from the ECM through the OBD2 connector. This process may take several minutes to an hour, depending on the vehicle and type of ECM.
Of many cars, we have the exact original software version in our database. In this case the readout of the original software is not necessary.
The original software is then sent to us, so we can make the necessary changes.
Step 2: modify ECM software
Once we have received the original software, this will be modified using a template (as explained above).
This process, depending on ECM and vehicle, takes about 15 minutes. If the original software differs from our template, it can take up to 45 minutes.
When the modification process is complete, the custom software will be downloaded and the car can be programmed.
Step 3: programming ECM
The modified software is programmed through the OBD2 connector into the ECM, which will overwrite the original software.
This process goes very smoothly, . When the programming is complete the car will be tested on the road or on a dyno.
The mechanic checks if the software has been installed properly and there are no error codes (DTC).
