The PCMFlash is an integrated software solution intended for engine and automatic transmission ECUs of Volkswagen, Skoda, Ford, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan/Infiniti, Subaru, Honda/Acura, Hyundai/Kia, Renault, Toyota/Lexus and other vehicles. There are universal modules Denso SH705x Bootloader and BSL TriCore. It supports work via ADS adapter (version 1, not for all ECUs) as well as via any J2534-compatible adapter if there are appropriate drivers and libraries. The tool has been tested with OpenPort 2.0, Mongoose JLR, MongoosePro JLR, Teradyne GNA600 (VCM 1), Mazda VCM 2. The software is marketed on a module basis and has simple and clear interface. The Guardant key is used for the protection from unauthorized access.


It supports flashing both backup (vbf) and binary (bin) files. When flashing binary files checksum verification and correction is available for most of the modules. Conversion from VBF/GDS into BIN is supported if the ECU doesn’t support reading. Most modules support checksum verification and correction as well as VID transfer (if needed) while flashing binary files.
