FlexiHub enables technicians to perform remote ECU reflashing. Using this approach eliminates the expensive and time-consuming travel necessary to physically visit the vehicle. A service expert can remotely access the ECU with an OBD scanner and USB to network card to achieve the identical functionality of a direct physical connection. ECU updates can easily be performed even when local technicians are not available.
A prerequisite for ECU remote access is a vehicle connected to an OBD scanner with network connectivity. Data flows through the network and USB adapter to the laptop. Installing FlexiHub on the laptop makes it possible to access the ECU data via the Internet.
New vehicles have engine modules programmed to support the manufacturer’s specifications. Drivers may find that these settings do not provide the type of performance they expect from their automobile. This is usually because the ECUs are programmed to address issues such as the use of low-octane fuel, meeting emissions standards, and protecting the engine from lapses in service or neglect. A reflash is done to change performance, fix issues, or configure an aftermarket ECU that has been installed in a vehicle.
Reflashing is typically done for one of the following reasons.
Improving performance – An ECU reflash can improve performance by adjusting the vehicle’s responsiveness and extracting the maximum power from its engine.
Increasing Fuel Economy – ECU updates can affect fuel economy and increase engine efficiency. Optimizing engines by reflashing can dramatically reduce fuel costs for commercial fleet vehicles.
Addressing Vehicle Issues – An ECU update can fix many issues that plague vehicle owners. The reprogramming can help reduce false error codes, problems with starting the automobile, and issues such as unexpected stalling or rough idling.
Flash Tuning and ECU for a Different Vehicle – This type of ECU reflash is done when a secondary market module is installed in an automobile or truck. Flashing the ECU can give it the same configuration as the one originally installed by the manufacturer.
Using FlexiHub for remote ECU flashing provides the following benefits:
