[quote=Dave B;32862]Orlando,

A couple of things to keep in mind if you are going to use the Honda J2534 Software:

- This software is written by Terradyne, who also write FMP & IDS. Putting the Honda software on the same computer as either one of those applications could cause complications. A different laptop or another partition is the best way to go when it comes to multiple applications from Terradyne.

- The Honda J2534 application does not give any security capability, and it does not allow you to initialize new modules, only update existing modules.

thank you so much for this information , i think i am gonna stick with domestics reflashing, everytime i try foreinge cars its either too long or too expensive, and by the way these forums are Snap on best tool ever.

Thanks so much every body.

After installing it, the car would not start and the green key icon would flash. This of course is bc on the anti-theft. After trying to add the key to the PCM with my Launch X431, it would not let me. Never asked me for a code/PIN or anything. At the end, we ended up calling our guy who does this for a living. With only a laptop and an OBD2 cable, he programmed the Anti-theft to accept the old key to the used PCM. My question is, what tool would he have used to program the Junkyard PCM to accept the old key? I tried every option on my Launch but kept getting no communication errors, so I thought the junkyard PCM was bad. This guy I called comes along and programs the Junkyard PCM to accept the key in 20 minutes. Any thoughts about which tool he used to program the anti-theft in this situation? I can add keys to the existing PCM with my Launch X431, but when I swap PCM's it asks for a programmed key. Even using the option "ECM/PCM replacement" option didn't work bc of the communication errors. Regards, Chavez.
I have the verus pro which I like a lot fir what it can do. When I run into situations like the above, I will use the Autel 708. I have the tech stream and hds, but its a lit easier to do with the ds708. Honda is generally plus and play as far as ecu replacement goes.

I do a TON of body shop work and when I replace Honda PCM,ecu,ect, I only have to preform the immob relearn and maybe key programming.

The reason it didn't work on your launch is because you don't have to use ECM replacement, just immob relearn.

I'm not sure why verus doesn't have it, maybe legal issues?

I would like to revive this post please. So...as far as which tools are KNOWN to reprogram new Honda keys, the O.E tool, Autel, and this "T-code" device will work? I have an Odyssey with a bad lock cylinder and the key will go in (hard) and not turn. Anyone else been faced with this? I am being told by everyone to send to the dealer. None of the locksmiths near me will recode this style (laser cut) key. Is this my only choice? Thanks fellas.

Neil

neil I know for a fact that the pass thru won't do it, I had to send one out after a pcm replacement. I was able to do the pcm but not security. If you could get a new cylinder and have it coded to the existing keys that would be your best solution.
