At Maverick we only sell pass thru tool approved by the vehicle manufactures for use with their software It is sometimes necessary to reprogram/Flash ECU’s to regulate and repair cars equipped with OBD systems. Until now, the ECU’s reprogramming capabilities were integrated into OEM’s specific diagnostic tools. A consumer had to rely on the car manufacturers dealership. Any non-franchise dealership would have to invest in obtaining specialist tools (one per brand!) to be able to perform ECU reprogramming. This factor places the freelance dealership in a non-competitive position which ultimately will impact a consumers’ freedom of dealership choice.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO EXECUTE FLASHING AN ECU with Pass-thru?
A device alone is not enough to reprogram the ECU’s. To do that, you need a dedicated Laptop PC and have to get the software application from the car manufacturer. This software application can be delivered on the Internet or on a CD according to the manufacturer. Some car manufacturers decided to check their application with PASS THRU hardware devices in order to assure the function of a device together with the software.
