Autel IM608 test report: Late 2014 Ford Fiesta instrument cluster dead – cloned across to donor cluster all done and back in the vehicle in less than 30 mins.
Normally I would have cracked open the VVDI and laptop, but so simple with Autel.
Question: So what exactly does it mean in step3? Will lead to data loss if you write?
- Only for “Read” and “Write” supported at unencrypted status.
- If the EEE or D-FLASH reads the data again after it has been written, and the data are inconsistent, please first execute “Write partition”, and then carry out normal read and write after the operation of “Write partition” is successful.
- “Write partition” supports for setting partition, but will lead to EEE or D-FLASH data loss.
Answer: it’s all about the prep – when reading make sure Autel validates the read for both files. On some occasions the data could be different on the read so there is another process to complete if this happens. So that’s why you get this message.
I mean ” validates” is that sometimes the file read can be incorrect so to make sure you are working with the best data you can ask your Autel to re read the data and check it against the first read. it’s a clickable option so Autel will check twice for you. Normally on read, write, schematic etc page it’s last option then drop down menu.
