How does chip tuning tools work?

Let’s start with the tool job, which is simply reading and writing ECU remap files. There are three ways of how remapping tool does that:

  1. OBD remap tool. OBD also implies to On-Board-Diagnostics port tool. By using this tool, there is no need to take off or open car’s ECU considering any kind of car programming job. The tool reads and writes files safely via OBD port.
  2. Bench. This way is based on taking ECU out of the car, with no need to open it. File reading and writing goes through pins. Bench and OBD tools are also called Flashers.
  3. Boot. The hardest but unique way to read and write files. Functions by taking ECU out of the vehicle, opening it and using needles. This way is more common within older vehicles.

Note that some of the chiptuning tools can only be used, considering one of the methods, which has been mentioned above. For example, Kess remap tool is mostly used for OBD reading. Occurs that, several tools might be used following two different methods. Even so, Ktag tool and some of it, like Flex, can be referred to all of the three schemes. Bear in mind, that file reading/writing method is chosen not only by the tool you have but also by the car model and ECU you want to remap.
