Your Local EEPROM Specialist Locksmith
Your car will often tell you when the computer needs to be reprogrammed. While you may not initially associate certain issues with a computer problem, being aware of these signs early on and getting the car in for an update will save you problems down the road. Issues that you may notice include misfiring and the car stalling when it is idle. Perhaps the car won’t start, or you notice a loss of acceleration. A check engine warning light often illuminates to warn of issues in a car computer’s electrical system. Pay attention to these seemingly unrelated signs and consider car computer reprogramming for issues such as car keys or key fobs not working properly.
A lost car key may also require that the computer be reprogrammed, particularly if the key was stolen. An updated computer will make the stolen or lost key obsolete and will be synced with the new key.

More About Car Computer Reprogramming
What does it mean to get your car computer reprogrammed? Flashing is a term you may hear related to reprogramming which simply means updating your car’s computer. Just like your personal computer, software becomes outdated and thus the vehicle’s computer may not run as efficiently. Flashing also removes false engine codes. An outdated car computer or false engine codes contribute to car systems that will not run correctly. Reprogramming the car computer ensures that the engine will run as efficiently as possible, which naturally means all other systems in the vehicle will run the way they were designed to. To do this, a device called a scanner is hooked up to the car’s diagnostic port. Old programs are deleted, and new ones are uploaded.

The cost to reprogram your car’s computer will of course depend on the make, model, and year of your vehicle, as well as the parts, needed and the time it will take to do the work.
