Without having the protection of being a paid member, or a bought in advertiser i cannot give myself the luxury of being so blase as you..
Every ARM core can be reprogrammed. I have yet to find one which cannot be reprogrammed.
Which ARM core cannot be reprogrammed ? Does one exist ? The purpose of flash technology, the whole reason it was introduced, was to allow microcontrollers to be field reprogrammable.
You have given no evidence of any limit to the number of times that a dpf may be reset...presumably you understand that to invoke such a limit would render an ECU useless in the case of a car which suffered with repeated dpf problems. Logically speaking, what would that achieve for the manufacturer if not more problems ? Why would a manufacturer assume a dpf would not need to be replaced more than a couple of times ?
We will find the truth in time...I have reset my DPF over 150 times now during testing, or was it 1000 times, or was it only once.... Maybe there is a 16- bit counter and I can reset it over 60,000 times....or maybe no counter exists at all, because, well, why would it ? All I know is that whatever the number of times I say I have reset my dpf, you will always say the limit is just a little bit higher. no ?
So let's do some maths for a moment......Lets say the dpf needs to be reset twice a week in a typical application of 24 driving hours per week (yoiu will agree this is a generous estimate ?). That's about 100 times a year. And if the car has another 10 years of life left in it , that's 1000 resets, and thats all.
I guess what I should do is reset my dpf 5000 times, to accomodate the guys who plan to keep their car for 50 years.....Then we'll know for sure
I'll get onto it this week. I'll make a special version of software to perform the endurance testing which obviously now needs to be done
I am happy to reiterate that my code does not change the firmware within the ECU, any more than a 'real tuner' can.
