Recovering an ECU with V1 Accessport
There is a very little known process, if your V1 accessport fails to flash the car or gets disconnected part way through a flash.
This process however does render the V1 accessport permanently in the recovery mode.
The following instructions are how you go about forcing a flash onto your ECU regardless of condition (you will need 2 people for this task or 1 very talented person):
Step 1- Connect the green test connectors and if needed on older WRX's install jump connectors.
Step 2- Before plugging in the V1 AP, you will hold all 4 buttons on the AP down.
Step 3- While holding all 4 buttons you will plug the AP into the car. This will bring up a new menu and mode you havent seen before.
This will prompt you that you are putting the AP into recovery mode and that it will be have to be sent into Cobb to be restored. Cobb does not support this procedure anymore, therefore it will be peramently stuck in this recovery mode
Step 4- You will follow the prompts and directions til it gets the point where you flash the car and then at this point it will force the flash on, regardless of ECU condition.
This file will be a stock file so if you have a heavily modded car you will require a new tune
Step 5- Enjoy your running car
Hope this helps everyone
