We can take a look under the hood
Automotive Module Programming
Vic’s Garage specializes in module programming, re-programming, and the setup, calibration, and initialization of new modules. We use much of the same equipment as OEMs, dealerships, and we also have equipment that allows us to do some reprogramming that dealerships don’t do. We can set up new electronic parts that require programming before they will function and we can also save you money by re-programming some modules that the dealership would otherwise replace. Many of our services can be performed on-site, and all of our services are available locally in Monterey County.
All Services are performed by ASE Master Technicians providing you a piece of mind.
