Preparing Vehicle for ECU Flash Reprogramming 1.1. Verify the vehicle’s 12 volt battery is at or above 12.2 volts before proceeding. ● If the voltage is below specification, connect a battery charger using the B+ positive post at the Power Distribution Center (PDC) with Fisker special tool FST9001 – Battery Charging Terminal Adaptor. Connect the – Negative lead to the Accessory Power Module (APM) ground terminal. NOTE: Battery voltage must be maintained between 12.2 and 16 volts while flashing an ECU. 1.2. Before ECU flash reprogramming can be started; the vehicle must be put in ACC – Accessory mode unless otherwise stated. ● With the vehicle completely off, press the Start/Stop Button (SSB) once. The SSB backlighting will turn amber and the DIS will display “ACC”. 1.3. When an ECU is being reprogrammed; the vehicle must be prevented from going into Sleep mode. This can be accomplished simply by turning on the Hazard Warning Lights. ● Once the flash has started, do not disturb the vehicle by opening/closing doors, turning on unnecessary accessories or lights. NOTE: If the vehicle goes into sleep mode while an ECU is being reprogrammed; the reprogramming may be unsuccessful and can potentially damage the ECU. 2.
