Notes
Isuzu reprogramming files are available. However, IsuzuSource.com does not provide downloadable calibrations for reprogramming. The reprogramming files are supplied through Isuzu Diagnostic System (IDS) CD and can be purchased through the Isuzu store. Reprogramming can only be done using either the IDS Software System with a validated SAE J2534 device or with a Tech 2. OEM equipment and IDS system software (which includes reprogramming files) can be ordered from the Isuzu Source Store. >If using a Tech 2, reprogramming files can be purchased on an updated Tech 2 PCMCIA Card that can be purchased through IsuzuSource.com. The PCMCIA cards contain the Service Programming System (SPS) application which allows the Tech 2 to program control modules with vehicle calibration data. >Also, if you need a replacement PCM programmed and do not have the validated tools needed, Isuzu offers a PCM Reprogramming Service through Par-Tech. This service can be ordered through IsuzuSource.com.
