How to fix FRM by VVDI PROG?


Part 1

Take out FRM module, and read it by VVDI PROG.

If all data show FFFF, write in data to repair.

is the same as the original, then we can start car after installing it back;

get slight difference, then we can fix it by online coding.


To select same data, check version (label on case) and chip type.
