Modern vehicles now run on networked modules which are all controlled by a central unit. The vehicle monitors every aspect of the module which has allowed the manufacturers to advance the features and efficiency of vehicles.
The problem with this advancement is that changing simple components now requires re-coding of the new units to the vehicles.
For example, if a fuel pump is changed on a Ford, the new pump must be coded to the vehicle. If an aftermarket iPod/USB unit is added to a BMW, the new unit must be coded in.
Here at Lockman UK we can program these units for you. We can come out to you or bring the car to us and we will program and new units.
We can also perform any diagnostics through the vehicle’s computer should it be needed.
