Reflash Auto ECU

What is Car ECU Reflash?

When losing the master transponder key on some vehicle (Lexus/Toyota) there is no interface of making a new key, but reflashing or replacing the ECU. Also if the ignition or the ECU is being replaced on a vehicle a reflash service would be necessary.

Reflashing the ECU actually involves electronically deletion of the read only program and download a new one updated map information instead. Typically, when an ECM is re-flashed, a new map is assembled that allows the engine to run better and faster, but can decrease its durability and reliability.
