Help Identifying my ECU and Related Software

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased an 04 JDM STI and got a CEL. Upon investigation I realised the ECU is not OEM but carries a board with the following markings:

PCB Rev 1.2

Serial# 16816

I tried connecting it to the PC via the USB cable with the latest G4+ software and it says "the ECU is too old"

How do I connect, check and reset the codes causing the CEL and further, can any Link ECU tuner perform future tuning (I understand there is a code of some sort required for tuning)

Thank you. This worked, I can now see the error is related to a temp sensor, however, I'm being prompted to update the firmware then it seems I lose the connection.

I've looked at the firmware update videos for the G4+... assuming the procedure is the same should I proceed with the update?

Once connected, can you click >help>ecu information and tell us what firmware it says it currently has.  If its earlier than about 4.4 then it is a bit of a job to update.  It might just be easier to give you an older software to check your error code in that case.

Hi finally got chance to attempt to identify the firmware version via the ecu information screen but it looses the connection and I get a response indicating version 0.0

When I go to the firmware updater, it reads the firmware as 4.10.2 (see attachement)

The error code is visible at the top but I'm still unable to maintain a connection to the ECU

What do you suggest?
