Powertrain Reprogramming 

Beginning with some 2001 models and expanding to all models by 2007, Toyota/Scion/Lexus vehicles have flash reprogrammable powertrain ECMs.

Reprogramming is only performed if a Technical Service Bulletin or Service Campaign provides direction to do so. Flash reprogramming can be accomplished using a scantool or a PC and a "Toyota validated" J2534-1 interface.

Toyota/Scion/Lexus ECMs can be reprogrammed using either TIS techstream, Techstream Lite, previous Toyota/Lexus factory Diagnostic Tester, or the Vetronix Mastertech scantool. The ECM reprogramming function is only available with the authentic Toyota factory scantool software which runs on either of the above mentioned scantools.
