Note that once the upgrade is complete the Auto Flash tool will be locked to that vehicles VIN and our TERMS & CONDITIONS apply. PLUGING INTO ANY OTHER VEHICLE MAY CAUSE DAMAGE!  Once the tool is locked to your VIN, it cannot be returned as the software has been installed and used.

Below is the 8 step installation of the OBD flash tool & the procedure to return to stock/standard settings.

Step 1 – Switch ‘ON’ ignition, but do not start engine. Ensure dash lights are on.
Step 2 – Locate OBD port (on board diagnostic plug) usually located in the drivers foot well.
Step 3 – With the ignition still in the ‘ON’ position (engine NOT started) insert the flash tool into the socket. You should hear a audible beep and the LED should illuminate (not fitted on all models).
Step 4 – Once the upgrade is complete the unit will begin to beep constantly confirming the process has completed successfully (or where fitted the LED will also flash.)
Step 5Remove the flash tool from the OBD port and switch ignition into the ‘OFF’ position.
Step 6 – Remove your negative battery terminal on the car to clear all adaptations.  Leave the cable off for 10 minutes.  Then put the cable back on and tighten down bolt.
Step 7 – Start the engine on the vehicle and allow to idle for 5 minutes. DO NOT TOUCH ACCELERATOR PEDAL, rev the vehicle or attempt to drive at this point. On some vehicles you may hear the engine hunt/rev in this time, then eventualy settle.
Step 8 – Now drive the vehicle using the full rev range and in all gears and modes, in both sport and manual. The vehicle will now begin the adaption phase and adjust to the new upgrade. This phase can take anything form 10 – 100+ miles depending on vehicle. Once complete the vehicle will feel sharper and more responsive.

Congratulations, you have now completed the installation of the VR Tuned Auto Flash upgrade. Go drive!

Procedure for Returning the vehicle back to stock/standard settings.

The following procedure provides details of how to return the vehicle back to the original standard settings again. This must
be and can only be used on the original vehicle the upgrade was completed on as the Auto Flash tool is locked to the first
vehicle it flashes.

Step 1 – Enter car and sit in driver’s seat, close all doors & turn ignition on so that dash lights completely but engine is not running.
Step 2 – Insert Auto Flash into the OBD port.
Step 3 – When the Auto Flash is inserted into the OBD port it will make a long beep tone. While this tone can be heard, immediately press and hold the close door function on your vehicles remote control keyfob.
Step 4 – The Auto Flash should now stop sounding. You should now wait for the intermittent beeps (flashing has stopped). The stock settings are now written back to the vehicle.

Now continue above to Step 5 to complete the process.

Trouble Shooting

  • Before the unit is installed your vehicle must be free from error codes or faults codes on the ECU. This can be quickly checked with a hand held OBD scanning diagnostic tool.
  • All faults must be cleared for the procedure to work correctly, failure to do this will result in the TCU Flash upgrade not installing to the vehicle.
  • Please ensure OBD plug is undamaged on the vehicle and free from dirt/moisture prior to installation.
  • This unit is for 12v Vehicles only, for 24v vehicles (fleet/truck) please contact us for an adapter kit/cable set.
  • Make sure you run the vehicle for at least 50 miles for the adaptation phase to complete after the upgrade has installed. This time allows the vehicle to adjust to the new settings giving sharper more responsive driving experience.
