Mobile Electronic Programming

 
These days, vehicles are controlled through numerous sensors and computers, all of which are programmed to make your vehicle run efficiently. However, these computers can encounter problems that affect their programming or need updates to correct previously unseen issues. That’s why it’s essential to find a company that has the right tools to reprogram your vehicle properly.

When you take your vehicle to a mechanic shop, they’ll go through their “A-B-C” list of problems in an attempt to fix your issue; when A doesn’t work, they go to B (and so on). If they reach the end of their list and they can’t fix your problem, you’re out of luck. However, it could be that your vehicle needs to be reprogrammed. There are many systems that have specialised programs. Some of these systems include:
 
 
  • Fuel Injectors
  • TCM (transmission control module)
  • PCM (powertrain control module)
  • Audio module
  • Aircon module
  • ABS (anti-lock braking system) module
 
 
 
  • Instrument cluster
  • SRS (supplemental restraint system)
  • BCM (body control module)
  • ICM (ignition control module)
  • ACM
  • EPS (electronic power steering)
 
 
 
 
All of these systems are designed to work with the ECU in tandem. If any of them stop working or need patches and updates, they’ll need to be reprogrammed. Reprogramming is a very complex process that has to be performed in a series of steps. If any step is skipped, it could break your vehicle, causing you even more in repair/reprogramming costs.

At Fraser Mobile Auto Tech, we have factory programming tools for most vehicle brands as well as the experience to ensure the programming is successful. Let us fix it for you the first time, the right way and at an affordable price.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Engine Computers

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Engine computers manage every aspect of your engine and all the connected components. They must “get along” well or things will go downhill fast. Engine computers control:
 
 
  • Fuel flow
  • Air flow
  • Coolant temperatures
 
 
 
  • Speed
  • Fuel economy
  • Timing
 
 
 
 
Using the proper equipment, we can make sure that all of these components get along and keep your vehicle running like new.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Car Keys

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Car keys have changed dramatically over the years. In the past, you simply pressed a button and the car unlocked. However, thieves figured out how to capture the key codes through the air and adjustments had to be made to protect your vehicle.

Now, car keys have specialised radio systems that work on certain frequencies, using rolling codes, and even have to be paired with the vehicle before they’ll work.

If you replace the batteries or buy a new key FOB, there’s a good chance that you’ll need to reprogram your car keys. If this is you, bring your vehicle and key by and we’ll help you get it running quickly. We’ll even come to you if you can’t bring your vehicle to us.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

ABS System

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Failing/failed ABS systems are a pain! Even worse, once the part has been replaced, the new module has to programmed to work with your vehicle. In most cases, this is a rather short process that can be completed in a few hours. Fraser Mobile Auto Tech will travel to you (or your mechanic) to effectively reprogram your ABS system.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

 
Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions we’ve been asked so far.
 
Can I use an over-the-counter diagnostic tool?
 
While these are great for reading common problems, they aren’t suitable for complex issues. Plus, they are only designed to read codes that cause the warning lights to come on.
 
 
 
I know a programmer, why can’t they fix my car?
 
Why doesn’t the warning light come on if a problem exists in my vehicle?
 
Can’t I buy a programmer to fix my car?
