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.

Kindly Note:

Use OPCOM turn on/off Vauxhall Zafira Day Running Lights

There is no “on” or “off” switch for Vauxhall day running lights but the lights can be easily activate or disable via an OPCOM code reader or by the dealers. The cost of DIY is much less than that at the dealers. So, here I would like to share a quick guide about how to activate my Zafira B 2008 with €17.00 OPCOM 2010.

Get an OPCOM 2010 and install it on Windows XP system by following this video: http://youtu.be/FhbUYi3J8uo . To get it installed on Windows 7 system, you will need to install it in XP mode. Please refer to this in wikihow write up: http://www.wikihow.com/Install-Windows-Xp-Mode-in-Windows-7

Next we will start the coding:

Start up OPCOM software > click Diagnostics in the menu > 2007 (year of your car) > Zafira B (model of your car) > Body > (UEC) Underhood Electrical Centre;
Diagnostics > Year > Zafira > Body > (REC) Rear Electrical Centre;
Then once in these the process is the same;
Programming > Variant Programming > DRL Option 1 to 5 then click program;
After a few seconds, the day running light is activated.

No program activating my DRL. The process to turn off the day running light is the same. Hope this will work for you as it did for me.

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.

Diagnostic Procedure Astra via OPCOM 2010

I put the tutorial that I made during a repair of my Astra.

I also put at the end of a link to the screenshots on page outside the forum. I do not put directly on the topic, because there are nearly 200 images …

Note that I am presenting Opcom 2010. I am not the author of all the tutorials associated with the list of possibilities listed below.

Tutorial:

What is OPCOM?

This is an interface that enables communication between a computer and the car.
It does not do anything that makes a Tech2 (pro device used in the garage) such as programming / update the computers, but it allows the modification and / or addition of unsupported options when buying .dropoff window
It simply allows also make the diagnosis.

What can we say?

-speedlock
-anti-fog
-Screen CID color
-autoradio CD30 + DVD90 to CID
-Bluetooth UHP4
-computer edge
-Orders driving
Automatic -air conditioning
-…

Diagnostics:

We can test for example:
-The Battery (voltage)
-The EGR valve
-The Fuel rail
-The Fans in front of the radiator
-The Lights bulbs, LEDs onboard instruments
-Know Wear oil
-Réparer The actuator of easytronic box and reset it
– …dropoff Window
OPCOM:

It looks like this:
opcom-op-com-can-obd2-opel-firmware-8
The price is about € 20.
If it looks like the photo, it’s good.
As for the firmware, even if it is not the last, it does not matter, the software will update!

The software:
OPCOM comes with a small CD on which the software. Direction trash … for me, it contained a virus …
The latest software version I have is the 100219a available by PM.
This is a newer but I’ve never used.

Drivers:
They are included with the software in the “drivers” directory. OPCOM running xp and seven 32 and 64-bit and win8.
Under seven (and win8), it may be that the computer refuses to install the driver because it is not signed. To overcome this, simply disable checks for drivers signatures. To do this simply, when starting the pc, maintain F8, and then select the line that disables checking.
Interface:
I did a web page that details what a lot we can do with the software.
I will update as and when I use OPCOM.
For cons, I do not have all the options and existing engines or transmissions, so it is not complete … but it helps to get an idea.
