always had them done for free if needed. I was wondering if Chrysler can also reflash your ECU- just kind of like a "reset"
I think you already answered your question. The Mazda place did it
When you go to your Chrysler dealer, why do you say you need to have
the ECU flashed?
If you don't need it, or if you are not having any problems with your car,
then there is no need to flash the computer right?
Now, if you are having problems with the transmission having a hesitation
going from 1st to 2nd, or your airconditioning stops blowing cold air after
a few hours, or some other problem that is computer control related,
then they might do it for you.
But, to just go in and say, hey, pull one of your techs off of a paying job,
and flash my cars computer for free, for no reason that I can think of other
than just doing it, will probably not sit well with them, as you have already
Some people have been successful in getting their dealers to flash their
cars computers with the SRT-8 flash for the 1-2 hesitation, and it has helped
the way the car shifts.
And then there are some who say it did nothing to their 300C, and they
wish they had never done the flash.
Also, remember, to flash the cars computer does not take only 5 or 10
minutes. It takes quite awhile to hook the car to a Starscan tool, upload
the proper software/version of what needs to be done, and remove the cars
original stock program, and replace it with the new stuff.
If I was you, and you wanted to see if they will flash it for you, search this
site for computer related problems, and see if you can have them flash your
car for one of those. But I doubt they will do it unless they can replicate
