Reset 2002 Astra-G ECM Using OPCOM 2010V

OPCOM 2010V Can OBD2 is mainly designed for almost all Opel vehicles diagnostics, even new cars with CAN-BUS based diagnostic, such as Vectra-C, Astra-H and Zafira-B.

OPCOM 2010V Can OBD2

The following part is about how OPCOM 2010V Can OBD2 Opel reset ECM (Engine Control Module) for 2012 Astra-G. You need to set ECM back to its factory default state prior to have a replacement/resetting. Under this case, you can install it into another car.

Hook up OPCOM scan tool to your vehicle and laptop;

You can check that the vehicle is immobilizer equipped – the Immobilizer Function Programmed is grey or not;

Open up the Immobilizer;

Go to “IMMO2 Special Functions”, and you will see “Reset Engine Control Module” function is available;

Click on the button and the swap will start.

Important Note:

  1. After using this function, you may not be able to start the engine.
  2. Each factory default state Engine ECU has some limited running time without immobilizer (max 10 attempts to be exact). After that number, the Engine ECU will lock itself, and no more start is allowed without a fully functioning immobilizer.
  3. before you swap or replace any immobilizer related component (Engine ECU, Immobilizer ECU), you have to reset them first.

The arming of the immobilizer has some delay (usually 5-10 min), so within five or ten minutes, you may be able to start the car. But after this delay expires, you won’t be able to start the engine at all, as the immobilizer will lock the vehicle. An indicator light (SVS, or MIL) will be flashing on the dash, showing an immobilizer related problem.

What vehicles does OPCOM support?

Hi, guys. I have my OPCOM 2010 for weeks and have been playing with it. I have enabled auto speed locking/ hijacking and pulled error codes it, and have just been able to program a new key with my op-com to my car. So thought I would offer a car list of what I can do with the Opcom OP-Com to you guys.

How to calibrate Opel steering angle sensor with Op-com

I have a 2006 Ventra C Z19DTH with the error faults detected: Steering Angle Sensor Signal C1532-05 Circuit Open or High Voltage History. I got the old power steering pump water changed. Now my power steering water works only that remains my control lit abroad approx 20 second after start the engine. I went to the technician and was told to get the CIM recalibrated.

I learn from him quickly and I have myself own an Op-com diagnostic interface, cheap €19 in Eobd2. Here we go:

1) Disconnect the battery and the steering angle sensor lose its basic setting
2) Remove airbag and steering wheel following the usual precautions
3)Move the center rotor of the CIM to align the 2 triangles
4) Connect the op-com interface with computer via USB port than install the software
5) Plug the op-com unit into the vehicle USB port after succeeded installing software
Op-com-2
6) Op-com will turn out the ESP light but not very first and second time
7) Turn on the vehicle ignition switch and start the vehicle.
8) Drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at the speed not higher than 20 km/h.
9) When the steering wheel is straight, stop the vehicle with the wheels pointed straight. Make sure the vehicle is not move again.
10) Come to the op-com main function menu, select “Op-com Diagnostic”>> Vehicle year “2006”>>Vehicle model “Astra-H”>>Body>>CIM (Steering Column Module)>> Measuring block 3>>Steering Angle Sensor offset – set to 0.00 by slightly moving steering wheel
11) Back to the CIM screen, select “Programming”. Enter the security code if the system asks for it. Then click “Yes” when the system accepts the security code.
12) Go back to the programming screen, select “Steering angle calibration”, if the system still showed steering angle calibrated, choose “No, choose Activate and waited”. Otherwise, select “Yes” when the system displays steering angle calibrated.
13) The ESP light then came on with ignition as normal and went out after a few seconds

I am going to investigate another 10 pieces of op-com for a cheaper price and make some benefits by selling to local Opel owners.

What is the difference between Op-com V1.39 and V1.45

Some heat discussions are given to Op-com OBD Opel scanner between the version V1.39 and V1.45. I have got the version V1.45 from EOBD2 and my friend got the older version V1.39. We had made some comparison and drawn some conclusions list as below.

opcom-op-com-can-obd2-opel-firmware-3

For vehicle model:

Newly version Op-com adapter works great on new model about 2011. And V1.39 works better properly before year 2007.

Function:

Firmware version 1.39 works steadily on a large number of models, all blocks are read. But V1.45 works well on some of the new models. For some models, like Astra H 2013, V1.39 is better

Firmware:

V1.45 is the newest version today. V1.39 and V1.45 mainly differs in firmware, the software should be 100219a. What is good is that V1.45 does not need to update the firmware. V1.45 works more CAN-ohm but V1.39 fits stable with K-Line.

How we figure out that V1.39 fits more K-Line and V1.45 works stable on CAN-BUS:

First of all, we pick up a Op-com adapter, the relay clicks, switching to the appropriate CAN (eg, SWCAN), and the requested block is scanned.

When finished with this unit, we choose another. And here begins the differences in the adapter with different V1.39 and V1.45 firmware.

If we choose (randomly either V1.39 or V1.45) unit operates on the same CAN-e (eg SWCAN) that the adapter firmware 1.39 will simply continue to work, and the adapter firmware 1.45  will work not that better on the same CAN-e, still will produce inclusion (or rather re-enable) the same relay.

Thus, with the firmware 1.45 for each access to the blocks occurs relay operation, and firmware 1.39 relay operates only when there is a change CAN-a.
