Hondata locked to wrong ECU but functional?



Need some input:


The vin at the bottom is my accords vin(7780). The highlighted vin that hondata is locked to is the donor TL vin(0263). It has been this way since I installed it months ago, it always connects and never gives me any problems while flashing.

The Ecu was from an 08 auto TL (modified for 6mt by ken). if I remember correctly ken and I had to flash the Ecu to manual before it would let us write in my accords vin. (Correct me if I'm wrong ken). Does hondata need to be locked to a vin before flashing? If so that's prob what happened.

I'm only asking this because I have obd2 inspection in a few months and don't know which vin the reader will see when I plug it in. (Self inspection).

Is there any way to check what vin is written in the Ecu currently? I don't want to risk having to write my accords vin to the Ecu again with the fly100 (it was a huge pain, more than it should have been). Will the "return to factory" function return the original TL vin to the Ecu? Or will it retain my accord vin that we wrote in?

Bottoms is the real vinn. Remeber we had to lock the ecu and flash to manual first then program the vinn. What u can do it unlock the flashpro from your car and relock it. That should give you the right vinn. Flashpro is locked via a binar code and not the vinn itself. That way people can steal or cheat the flash pro system.

That's what I thought we had to do. So your saying the reader should pickup my actual vin (bottom) not the locked vin when I go for inspection?
