Your car’s electronics network is very sophisticated, but as the amount of data it handles increases over time, it will have to be upgraded. In case you’re on the technological slow boat, “flashing” refers to reprogramming automotive Electronic Control Modules (ECM) with updated software. Today, everything has an ECM…. Window motors, transfer case motors, ignition switches, body control modules, gem modules, FICHMs, etc… If any of these parts, and so many more depending on the manufacturer, are replaced, they need to be ‘flashed’ or programmed to work. Plus, many issues are corrected by software updates as manufacturers detect issues within a system that is the result of a software glitch.
