Corrupted PCM


Recommended Posts

It ignores all errors. When a flash has failed the detect method will read all nulls and fail to determine what the vehicle is. The PCM will also be stuck in the bootloader so all normal read PID commands will also fail. 

By selecting recovery mode and selecting the pcm type manually it will ignore all errors and force the tec file in. Even if you select the wrong flash type it will let you continue so it is not recommended unless you have a failed flash write or have flashed an incompatible os.

Thanks for the info.  I had a laptop die on me halfway through a flash last night, got it going again and re-flashed successfully and the car fired up no worries.

This morning the car would crank but would not fire. Do you think something could have been corrupted still even though it flashed successfully and worth doing the recovery mode option?
