Reflashing

[Shop Name] shop in NW Kansas that performs Reflashing on Asian cars.

Powertrain Control Module reflashing is the process of replacing the existing software in a vehicle controller with new software. This is done by electronically transferring approved calibration files from a vehicle manufacturer’s website. This process is also known as ECM reprogramming, flashing, reprogramming, programming or reconfiguring.

“Flashing” refers to reprogramming automotive engine control modules (ECMs). Almost all new vehicles today are now flash programmable. Flash reprogramming is an important part of repairs and tune-ups on most 1996 and newer cars. Many times, reprogramming is the only way to repair a vehicle and eliminate false “Check Engine Soon” lights or MIL indicators, and will often fix engine and transmission problems that are not caused by mechanical issues.
