Which models and model years of vehicles can be reprogrammed?
Pass Thru re-programming over the Internet for 2004 and later vehicles using an SAE J2534-1 Pass Thru device and a laptop PC with ODIS diagnostic and reprogramming software is available for certain applications.
How does a technician determine whether a reprogramming event is needed for a particular vehicle?
The details are listed in specific technical bulletins. Since these are for specific concerns for specific models, all appropriate diagnostic procedures should be followed before attempting Pass Thru re-programming. Re-programming should only be performed if a technical bulletin provides direction to do so. This technique requires a secure uninterrupted Internet connection and a Pass Thru device that has been recommended for this application.
