READ EVERYTHING HERE

There are NO REFUNDS ON SOFTWARE. Once the cable is locked to your VIN, the cable cannot be refunded either.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING UNTIL YOU HAVE READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS HERE and BELOW.

***********Attention!!! If you are NOT the first owner of your vehicle, it is possible that your vehicle could have been flashed previously.  Some companies do things to the ECU processor that will not allow it to be read out via OBDII.  Even if the ECU was flashed back to “stock” by these companies, the ECU still cannot be read.  The only way to read out the ECU and fix this issue is in boot mode on the bench.  To do this you must ship your ECU to us.  We will then fix your ECU to work with the cable and return it back to you.  We have NO control over this or a way of knowing if your ECU has been flashed previous to your purchase.  This is the responsibility of YOU, the customer. ***********

Installing this software is the same as installing any WINDOWS application.  If you have errors related to the USB Device, follow the instructions below and try to disable the driver signature.  You may also have to install the driver separately.  Installation does require you have administrator permissions.  We will gladly help to the best of our ability, however we are not Windows technicians nor work for Microsoft.  If you cannot get it to work on your computer, you may want to try another computer, different version of Windows, or have someone help you configure your PC.  🙂

***Important for 2015 and on – If you bought a ECU flash previous to 2015, your cable has new security features.  If you bought your flash after 2015, you do not need to do this. Launch the flash client and click the next buttons till it errors out because of the driver security. When running the new version for the first time, the firmware will be updated automatically. The update will cause the device to lock itself. Once that is done close the flash client and then launch the xdcode application below. To unlock it you will have to run this xdcode.exe application (only once) to adapt the cable to the new required coding.

***Important note after you flash – After you have received your tuned file and loaded to your vehicle, if you have had your vehicle serviced and the firmware updated during this time, whether you are aware or not, DO NOT flash your car again.  Doing this will corrupt the ECU because of the mismatching firmware.  Your vehicle will not start and you may have to have your ECU repaired or replaced.  In the event this happens, we cannot be held responsible and there may be costs involved at your expense.  If the firmware was changed, do a new stock read out and we will provide you with a updated tuned file.

***NOTE:  If you try to download the flash client with the latest Google Chrome, it may say this is a virus.  ITS NOT.  Just go into your Google Chrome Settings and turn off the feature that says, “Automatically send some system information and page content to Google to help detect dangerous apps and sites”Click image below to see where and how.
