Default Re: airbag light

The software has been there to read , erase or edit the crash data in the EPROM or EEPROM dump since day one of the invention of the airbag
The original idea it was supposed to work like a aircraft black box , so if involved in a accident the data could be read by a authorised accident investigater as to what really happen , but due to expense etc it was never taken any further
Originally the Eprom had to be removed to read data from the dump but as things moved on daily in the electronics world it was later acessable to the EEPROM via the diagnostics link so the ecu didn,t even have to be opened it became more viable to read and erase the EEPROM dump .Also the hardware and software became more readily available
Done by a compitent person with correct software there is no issue with removing crash data as the info is stored in a dump seperate to the main ecu programing
