Expert Vehicle Programming, Remote Diagnostics & Recoding

Smart AVR specialises in Vehicle Programming, Remote Diagnostics, and Re-coding services, offering the utmost convenience and expertise in the Australian vehicle repair market.

Expert Brand-Specific Remote Vehicle Diagnostics & Programming

Vehicle programming, Remote diagnostics, and Re-coding require the expertise of a skilled technician with access to the latest vehicle manufacturer software, this process can be quite complex.

Today, over 56 vehicle manufacturers are tirelessly building hundreds of models for Australian drivers. Each manufacturer incorporates unique computer networks and driver assistance technology into their vehicles, with high-end models boasting up to 150 million lines of code in their software. Compare this to about 25 million lines of code in an F-35 jet fighter, and the complexity of vehicle programming becomes apparent. Real-time expertise from dealer-trained professionals is crucial for automotive module programming.

We have invested heavily in expert master technicians and specialist tools to offer the widest coverage of Australian makes and models, ensuring that we can provide comprehensive services for all your vehicle programming needs. Our tools and expertise guarantee that your vehicle will receive the highest level of care and attention.

Modern Vehicle repair practices have four technology-related steps, Smart AVR can optimise each step of the process for you:

To ensure precise diagnostics and proper ADAS calibration, Smart AVR employs a comprehensive vehicle scan, vehicle diagnostics, ADAS calibrations, and vehicle coding/programming process. We utilise a variety of systems to maximise coverage of our vehicle carpark, ensuring a solution for any vehicle's needs.

Vehicle Module Programming

Modern vehicles are equipped with a multiple interconnected electronic control units (ECUs), also known as electronic control modules (ECMs), that manage various functions. These include:

  • Airbag control modules (ACM)
  • Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS)
  • Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) modules
  • Brake control modules/electronic brake control modules (BCM or EBCM)
  • Central control modules (CCM)
  • Engine control modules (ECM)
  • General electronic modules (GEM)
  • Powertrain control modules (PCM)
  • Suspension control modules (SCM)
  • Transmission control modules (TCM)
  • Central timing modules (CTM)

Because these modules are individual units that any combination may be present to work together in a vehicle to provide the safety and assitance features customers have come to expect, it’s more accurate to say that today’s vehicles contain multiple computers that are part of a complex network. Different manufacturers may use varying names and acronyms for these modules, in addition to configuring them differently to mesh with their unique software. This is why it's imperative to rely on a trusted expert/master technician familiar with each OEM system and its specifications. Trust Smart AVR for your vehicle programming needs.

Airbag (ACM) Module Programming 

After a collision, whether you're replacing the airbag with a new or used one or refurbishing the current one, airbag module programming is crucial for safe driving. The ACM stores fault codes triggered by the airbag light indicating problems. Failure to reset the module may prevent the airbag from deploying in a future crash, posing significant risks to passengers. Driving without an intact airbag module is not recommended and could result in serious liability for the auto repair shop if an accident occurs. In certain situations, such as fire or flood, the airbag modules themselves can be damaged, requiring immediate attention. Trust the brand specialists at Smart AVR to guide and support you as your vehicle gets serviced.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Calibration 

Smart AVR specialises in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration, vital for maintaining optimal performance of safety and convenience features in modern vehicles. Our trained technicians and cutting-edge calibration tools ensure precise adjustment of sensors and cameras, meeting vehicle manufacturer specifications. With expertise in a wide range of vehicle makes and models, Smart AVR provides reliable ADAS calibration services, guaranteeing your vehicle's safety systems operate effectively.

Engine Control Module Programming 

Often referred to as the "brains" of the car, the engine control module (ECM) collects information from sensors about the intake, exhaust, and cooling processes. It manages idle speed, optimises the air-to-fuel ratio, oversees ignition timing, and more. Over time, the ECM may not operate as effectively, especially after a collision, due to vibration and friction wearing it down. Effective reprogramming of the ECM plays a vital role in returning the vehicle to its maximum capabilities.

Powertrain Control Module 

The powertrain control module (PCM) oversees various functions in a vehicle, including idle speed, ignition timing, air-to-gas ratio, and more. It monitors oil, fluid, and air intake; temperature; throttle positioning; emission levels; and more. Reprogramming the PCM is crucial for maintaining optimal performance.

Electronic Brake Control Module 

The electronic brake control module (EBCM) oversees braking pressure. When not working optimally, cars can hydroplane or skid under less than ideal road conditions. Expert guidance in reprogramming this module is vital for safety.

Transmission Control Module Programming 

The transmission control module (TCM) stores crucial information for optimal transmission operation. When repaired or replaced, the vehicle must be reprogrammed according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Smart AVR's technology allows your repair shop to return the vehicle to OEM standards, with access to dealer-trained experts for guidance.

Vehicle Module Programming is a crucial step in the repair and optimisation process. Trust Smart AVR for all your programming and remote coding/diagnostic needs.
