Michael Warfield : I know of a company that might be able to unlock a used Engine computer. This will be much cheaper than buying a new unlocked engine computer.
Michael Warfield : Give me some time to get all the correct information together and check back here later this evening.
Michael Warfield : Also, your engine computer is under warranty for 8 years or 80,000 miles from the factory, does your vehicle have more miles than this?
JACUSTOMER-7c8jktqj- :

I tester ecu , It is damaged

JACUSTOMER-7c8jktqj- :

My car use in Viet nam

Michael Warfield : Ok then it won't be covered under warranty since those are only U.S. model cars. I'll post the information later.
JACUSTOMER-7c8jktqj- :

Hi

JACUSTOMER-7c8jktqj- :

Please for many info this problem .

Michael Warfield : I'll have the information in a little bit.
Michael Warfield : I'm just away from my computer right now.
Michael Warfield :

I contacted Beckmann technologies which unlocks a lot of engine computers but they are unable to unlock used 2007 and newer engine computers. The newer engine computers must be purchased "new" from the dealership.

Customer :

Hi, I’m a Moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the Professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with your question! What you need to do is:- find first used ECM -Find one with same numbers like yours(numbers from the label on ECM) then you need someone who is good with electronics hardware. you will need to remove the flash memory and security chip from your original computer and transfer it to the new one. But before you do that, make sure that components from original computer are not damaged. I do not know what type of damage you have in your computer. if there is no physical damage to components, it will work. you can reply to me if you have any questions. Regards Pavlin!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi, I am not able to see pictures. You will need to upload it here. Use the paper clip

sign on the menu to the right of the smiley face to upload pictures here.

If you have no communication with ECU, it does not mean bad ECU all the time.

must check power supply and communication wires as well first. You can plug your computer to another car if you have. Just to see if you will establish communication with it on another vehicle.

However post pictures here, and I will point you which chips you need to move.

Expert:  Hipo64 replied 1 year ago.

This computer has 2 flash memories, one below processors and one in processor I have marked with arrow. You need to use Jtag device like FGT Galletto to read computer and program to the new one. I have marked the place where you will connect.

it is to the right of the flash. You can also try first to move only small memory which is on the other side of the board. If it is not good, the you must copy computer. I am sending you a Link where you can buy programmer.http://www.ecutool.com/FGTech-Galletto-2-Master-BDM-TriCore-OBD-with-BDM-Adapters_10038.html
