ECU Programming Posted on August 29, 2019

Most drivers on the road today have never driven a vehicle that did not have an ECU or electronic control unit. These ECUs control a range of systems in the vehicle from the earliest use of the electronic fuel injection systems in Volkswagens in 1968 to the 100s of ECUs currently in new vehicles.

There are different types of software systems and devices that are used for ECU programming. One of the most popular in the market is the ABRITES USA Engine Control Unit programming software. Like all ECU programming software, this is specific to the various brands using various ECU systems.

The ABRITES USA Engine Control Unit programming software can be used on all VAG vehicles as well as other manufacturer’s vehicles using the Bosch MED/EDC 17, Continental, Delphi, and Kefico Motor Electronics. This allows it to be used to read the internal configuration for any of the EDC17/MED17 ECUs currently in use.

The ABRITES USA Engine Control Unit programming software offers a wide range of functions and features that make it a top investment for any garage or shop. With this programming software, there is full access to the vehicle’s memory through the CAN bus or boot-mode.
