Clear your codes before going in for your TSB flash

Hey All,

I just wanted to ensure everyone is aware that you should clear all active, or pending, codes on the ECU before going in for your TSB re-flash. The system will not allow a flash until all pending, stored, or active codes are cleared. Some people have reported some frustration with this when going in for the TSB, so you may as well avoid the frustration and get them cleared first.

You can get the codes cleared for free at any Auto Zone's shop, or many auto parts dealers across the U.S.

Later!

Can't we just ask the dealer to clear the codes first? Or is that not a good idea?

I had to tell the dealer the car was idling weird before they would even do the flash. I honestly can't tell a difference. I want to say my mpg went up slightly but who knows.

Its more of a preventive maintenance thing. If you have the code they are expecting, fine. But if you have codes related to over torque, or something related to a modification, just avoid the headaches, and clear those codes before showing up. If your CEL came on, and went off, then it has a stored code. Get that cleared too.

I only bring this up because a few people have messaged me about having issues with the dealers harassing them about unexpected codes.

I would agree, based on our extensive dyno time it certainly seems to be up there!
