The Truth About Engine ECU Re-mapping Should you re-chip, or re-flash your engine control ECU? Plenty of people do - and sometimes it ends in tears. Re-mapping your engine sounds great - just a few taps on the keyboard. More kilowatts and more Newton-metres plus greater economy, better emissions. But it doesn’t always work out that way. Certainly it did not recently for this guy: "My VW Amarok failed. The dealership stated there was an oil leak that clogged the DPF, which fouled the turbo. When I asked for a diagnostic they claimed it was because the ECU was remapped so therefore it is my fault. The company who remapped the engine are putting it back on VW. So basically I have a 4 year old $60,000 paperweight." - Shannon When your engine blows up, an aftermarket engine control ECU is a great deal for the carmaker - because it essentially allows them to sidestep any accountability for engine or powertrain failures. And then there’s the ECU-hacking backyarders. Do you suppose the guy selling you some aftermarket chip over the counter of an industrial unit in West Analsex has a test-track and a couple of engine dynos running flat-out, doing extreme accelerated life component testing on all the makes and models he re-flashes? Do you think he bothers to establish emissions compliance? Does he appear to have a budget to compensate you for a catastrophic engine failure? I urge you to think about this beyond the vague claims on the el cheapo website. These malignant keyboard jockeys can certainly overfuel an engine at wide-open throttle get power. They can lean it out at part throttle and push the NOx through the roof - and also save a little fuel. But there’s no free lunch. You cannot do this without compromising reliability and/or emissions. The most poignant of barrel bottom-scraping missives from the department of self-destructo engines over the past 12 months emerged into my inbox almost a year ago today. "I bought a Ford Ranger 2012 brand new. It's 10 months out of warranty. It’ been serviced on time at the dealer. The car has a chip on it and the Dealer said Ford won't provide assistance because of that chip. The chip was recommended to me by the Ford salesperson and I was told it would not void the warranty. (The salesperson’s dad sells them through his own business)." - Nathan I went a fair way down the track investigating this. All I can say is: I didn’t sniff any bullshit. I formed the view it is - at best - morally repugnant for a salesman at a dealership to solicit customers for dad’s ECU upgrade business. And to purport warranty compliance, which is flat-out untrue, that’s epic misconduct - even for a car salesman. So I contacted Ford. A company with a functioning moral compass would have gone on a witch hunt. A dealer’s franchise agreement would have been leveraged against a significant pull-through. Subject to verifying the truth of the allegations, or course. I’m certain there’s a ‘bringing the brand into disrepute’ termination clause in most car dealers’ contracts. If I had received a phone call from Ford, and if the facts had been corroborated by the owner of the Ranger, with his balls suddenly released from the $15,000 vice, if they’d said: We’re fixing this and we’re taking definite steps to ensure this kind of malfeasance never happens again … … I would have gone: ‘OK. Nice one. I won’t report it.’ Instead: Deafening silence. So my strong advice to you is: Buy a vehicle that performs as you require in its standard configuration. Engine, handling - whatever - do not step across the line and open Pandora’s box by re-mapping the engine control ECU. Unless you want to wave goodbye to essentially all consumer safeguards. Re-mapping the ECU is an invitation to disaster.
Welcome to http://CarTrek.com This is PCM Idle Learn Procedure for Honda Accord 2003-2011. After you disconnected battery, or replaced the Powertrain Control Module, or in my case the coolant replacement, you may need to perform this procedure. for more detail, please visit: http://cartrek.com/pcm-idle-learn-procedure-honda-accord/ other related videos: http://cartrek.com/absolute-minimal-removal-of-idle-air-control-install-new-iac/ http://cartrek.com/various-options-to-fix-idle-air-control-iac/ http://cartrek.com/clean-idle-air-control-valve-throttle-with-minimum-removal/ http://cartrek.com/idle-speed-fluctuates-many-possible-reasons/
Get the supplies and parts for your Honda Goldwing air filter change: http://bit.ly/gold-wing-oil-change Learn how to change the air filter on a Honda Goldwing GL1800. On many motorcycles, changing the air filter is a fairly easy job. Because of the shelter assembly built up on this motorcycle, changing the air filter on a Honda Goldwing is more difficult. John will show you how to dig down to the air filter and replace it, and the process starts by removing the seat. Then, John will guide you through the process of disconnecting the side panels, instruments, and the rest of the shelter assembly to reach the ECU. After the ECU is moved, you can access the air filter. From there, the process is familiar, you’ll just remove the old air filter, replace it with a new one, and then close the air box. Then you’ll reverse the process to get the Goldwing back together again. Below is a link to a useful diagram that will show you how all the parts fit together. https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/honda/motorcycle/2007/gl1800-8a-gold-wing/shelter-gl1800-06-airbag?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=video&utm_campaign=description_btf Buy OEM Honda Goldwing GL1800 parts here: https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/honda/motorcycle/2007/gl1800-3a-gold-wing?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=video&utm_campaign=description_btf VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Removing the seat - 1:30 Removing side panels and instruments - 2:00 Removing panels and pockets - 3:30 Removing the shelf - 7:00 Removing ducts and ECU - 8:00 Opening the airbox - 9:30 Replacing the air filter 10:20 Replacing ECU and wiring - 11:00 Replacing lower fairing - 12:00 Replacing intake ducts - 12:45 Replacing the shelf - 13:00 Replacing the seat - 17:00 In the video we’re working with a 2007 Honda Goldwing GL1800, but you may have similar steps for your Honda motorcycle.

In this DIY auto repair video, young mechanic Aiman will demonstrate how to remove PCM (Powertrain Computer Module), also known as ECM (Engine Computer Module) or ECU (Electronic Control Unit) on a 2004 Honda Accord, which is the same for model years 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2007 DX LX EX 2.4L & 3.0L V6 engine.
At the end of the video, Aiman also show you how to take out the SRS Airbag Unit.
The removal process for both is very simple and only requires minimal tools and wrenches. Installation is the same as removal except for it's in reverse.
The procedures should also be very similar to most late model Honda and Acura such as Civic, Element, CRV, Pilot & Odyssey SUVs and minivans.
We're taking apart this car, and while doing so we would like to show you, and give you ideas on how-to take apart certain parts and components, interior, exterior, underbody and in the engine compartment so it they can assist you in fixing, removing, replacement & installation undertakings.
Thanks for watching...
