Acura Dealers and the K-series reflash.

Post by Alabear » Sun Nov 15, 2009 5:45 pm

So everyone I've just recently purchased an '09 RDX and I am looking at the K series reflash option. This is about a 4 or 5 day turnaround from where I live so I would like to know a couple of things about the reflash.
1. - Is the reflash evident to an Acura dealers service shop? Is there any evidence displayed by their diagnostic equipment to show that the ECU has been altered?
2. - For the RDX is it true that the key (immobilizer info) not required for the reflash?
3. - Does the ECU link to any other devices within the vehicle? Where is the mileage and other data stored?

No they should not be able to tell.
