Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.

If your ECM has customer passwords and you do not know them. The only way around it is to have the dealer get factory passwords. With factory passwords they can change your customer passwords to what ever you want. I hope this helps.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
