So I got my flash pro hondata yesterday I tried to upload a tune to my Honda Civic but now the flash pro won鈥檛 connect to the ecu car doesn鈥檛 turn on at all馃槶 man did I fried the ecu. I tried to return it to stock but it fails to upload
The last Flashpro upload failed.
Failure information : code 0x05 Step 16 Address
0x0FFF00
Explanation: The ECU stopped responding while
reflashing. Check OBDII connector pins
The OBDII are fine I have a FIXD that I use sometimes and it reads the car.
What can I do?. Thank you so much for your help.

Did you buy the flashpro new or used? Were you able to verify that it was unlocked if it was used? What tune did you try to upload and from where did you get it? The file could be corrupted. The battery could be low. Could be a number of different things. I would take the stock factory tune, that should have been saved to your PC, reupload it to the hondata, then reflash the ECU and see where you're at.

Man, I am so "non-educated" on the finer points of tune uploads that, after reading the above posts, I'm pretty convinced that if I ever purchase items for a tune for any of my vehicles (9th Gen Civics + other Honda & Acura vehicles), I'll just take it to a pro Honda tuner and pay them for the work.

Just the thought of possibly crippling my vehicle would make me ask the pro what items / brands he recommends before I purchase anything.

To be honest with you it was pretty easy yes I stumble a lot but we all have a lot of resources around I looked around for answer and they spark it. But if you not confident with doing it yourself, I would recommend paying someone else to do the tune for you and let them explain it step by step and make sure you don鈥檛 miss anything,

@Axelparker11 , I take it that you did get your Civic up, running and operating in a desired state?

So easy that your car is currently DOA?

Yes I got it up running I just used a reflash and got rid of the mis fires I had, I took the car for a spin works perfectly I鈥檒l definitely let someone else handle the future tubes tho even tho I wanna learn by doing it myself I would rather have someone else do it for me馃槀馃槀.

I would caution new Flash Pro users to pick a moderate tune to get started, choosing an aggressive radical tune will more than likely cause problems. I picked the wrong intake value on my first tune and the car just did not run right. It created loud backfiring. I wouldn't push the envelope too far the first time out especially, doing this yourself for the first time. No doubt after you have added some major upgrades like intake, exhaust, big bore cat or cat removed, powerful alternator upgrade Plus upgrading to the big Four, racing radiator maybe even a new fuel rail, fuel pump upgrades then pay for a professional tune which is not cheap. They will use a dyno to get you dialed right in. Playing around with the Flash Pro yourself is a way to keep a lot of tune expenses in check.
