The Hyundai use of "ROM ID Error" to describe all apparent errors does not help any level of understanding or confidence that they want to identify issues relating to reprogramming.

Hyundai personnel response: Information pertaining to specific TSB numbers or reprogramming events was not provided on the information request and was not known at the time of the discussion, however; adherence to the information published in a TSB is required to successfully perform a re-flash. TSB’s typically outline specific production date ranges, VIN ranges and ROM ID’s as qualification for reprogramming. These parameters should be checked against the vehicle prior to reprogramming.
