Since mid 2009, many vehicles have been fitted with ‘protected’ Bosch EDC17 & MED17 ECU’s using an Infineon Tricore processor. People are often told that these new Tricore ECU’s cannot be remapped as the vehicle has ‘Tuning Protection’ or the ECU itself is ‘Locked’. There is no such thing as a ‘Locked’ or ‘Anti-Tuning’ software, however there are many inexperienced or poorly equipped tuners that do not understand these ECU’s. Rather than admit they have no knowledge on these latest systems they simply say it is not possible. CC Tuning has a safe and reliable solution to allow you to be able to tune these types of ECU’s that other tuners may not be able to deal with.
At CC Tuning we are able to program ‘anti-tune’ ECU’s via a Bootloader technique as pictured above, which involves the removal of the ECU from the vehicle and making a direct connection, allowing the reading and writing of the Tricore processor.
A sample of vehicles with these ECU’s fitted: Audi, BMW, Honda, Seat, Skoda and VW.
