Digital Mileage Correction

08/01/2013

At north east technic we are happy to offer this service to all customers Modern cars have electronic dashboards with digital odometer displays. The car manufacturers use this type of instrument cluster because they are cheaper to produce than a mechanical dashboard and easier to fit into the car as there is no mechanical speedometer cable. This new technology has its own problems though. Electrical pulses in the cars wiring can cause the dashboard mileage data, which is stored internally on an EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory), to become corrupted. This corruption could happen for a number of reasons:

The vehicle battery was discharged and the vehicle had been jump started

The dashboard may develop an electrical fault

The dashboard may be damaged in a collision or through vandalism.

In these examples, the corruption of the information held in the EEPROM may mean that the mileage displayed on the speedo is now incorrect and requires a correction.

 

123d BMW With EDC17 Tricore

10 June 2010

Hello Ciaron,

Just thought I'd let you know how impressed I am with the remap on my 123d. The throttle response has improved, it pulls like a freight train. The performance difference is more than I expected!

My mate has a seat Leon Cupra like my old one. We did a standing start from a set of traffic lights, after 600 metres it was around 80 metres behind i couldn't believe it. It seems to be getting quicker everyday.

Thanks again mate, I'm singing your praises to anyone who wants to listen!
