   V2 Read a Controller

Question 

How do I read a controller using FlashScan/AutoCal V2?

Answer 

FlashScan V2

Follow these steps to read the selected controller.

  1. Setup FlashScan V2 for BBX features if not already setup.
  2. Connect your FlashScan V2 device to your vehicle.
  3. Turn the vehicle ignition to the On or Accessory position (vehicle must not be cranked/running when reading).
  4. Navigate to the F2 Tune Tool -> F1 Tuning -> F1 Read Tune menu option.
  5. Select correct controller type from BBX configured controllers.
  6. Click the OK button to initiate the read operation.

NOTE: Not all Supported controllers can be read.  Some vehicle manufacturers have disabled the ability to read the contents of a controller from the factory.  In these cases, EFILive customers will need to obtain base files from an alternative source. Some EFILive Custom Operating Systems are written to non-readable memory.  These files cannot be read from controller.  Refer to the Problems Reading a Controller knowledgebase article for further information.
