Sometimes, when you read the original ECU data and write into the new ECU, it may appear the issues such as the car cannot start normally, etc. Foxflash and New KT200 ECU programmer support the ECU clone function with the on-screen instruction in their own software, making the job easier. Both two ECU programmers also support MEDC17 free clone service while most other tools need to patch the files after reading out.
Step-by-step guide to clone ECU:
Before the operation, connect the ECU and New KT200/Foxflash ECU programmer correctly, and make sure the internet connection on the computer is good.
Step 1: read the data (Micro [flash] and EEPROM) of the original ECU (ECU 1) and the new ECU (ECU 2) via BOOT MODE TRICORE or BENCH TRICORE separately
Step 2: Run New KT200 KTsuit software or foxflash software
Select driver- TOOL BOOT
Then select TOOLS BOOT MODE>> INFINEON TRICORE Clone Service and select the corresponding ECU clone model
Click OK to continue
Attach some tricore ECU supported images
Step 3: Open the original ECU (ECU 1) micro file and the new ECU (ECU 2) micro file in sequence
Step 4: Click “Clone & Save”, and then the software will generate the new ECU data and save it in the selected directory.
Step 5: In the software, select TOOLS BOOT MODE>> INFINEON TRICORE Boot>> select the corresponding ECU
Choose the new file just saved in ECU 2 to write into the new ECU
Note: As the BENCH TRICORE may cause the incomplete writing of ECU data. It’s recommended to read and write in Boot mode.
Please kindly notice:
- Directly write the original ECU (ECU 1) EEPROM into the new ECU. Don’t make any changes.
- Micro[flash] and EEPROM data are written separately. Don’t select read all or write all.
- If the Micro[flash] data cannot be written, then the data needs to be processed manually with winols or written by a professional engineer.
- Volkswagen’s 5th generation anti-theft system is not supported.
