New Tool To Address Legacy Chrysler ECUs

Over the last few years Chrysler has made it more and more expensive to program their vehicles. The older PCMs seem to be harder and harder to get. Some of us just want a simple way to exchange PCMs without a big hassle. For instance, you have a PCM that communicates but a driver is bad or you got an intermittent problem. The local wrecking yard has a PCM that came out of a wrecked vehicle. The OEM no longer supplies the part. The other guys selling a painted core are not an option. What if you could clone the ECU? Meaning, what if there were software that would allow you to read the old PCM, transfer the calibration data, reset the SKIM to a factory state and program the VIN?

On Friday, the long awaited AEMT software was released. After a few glitches with my GODIAG breakout box, the software exceeded my expectations. The tool is more J2534 friendly than the previous generation SKIM tool. I was able to use both my Cardaq M and First Gen Bosch MVCI with the application. The only thing missing was pinout diagrams. A quick trip to SI and I got it handled. The UI is set up very well with buttons for every feature of the tool. There is also a running log file that shows every step of the operation. When there is an issue, you know exactly which step the problem occurred. AEMT stands for Automotive ECU Management Tool. Currently it only works with SBEC and JTEC controllers. A new software module will be released after the first of the year covering the NGC (SCI) PCMs. GPEC controllers are expected to be covered Q2 of next year. Here are the features of the tool. Read and Write EEPROM, Read and Write Flash, Reset SKIM, Rewrite VIN, Rewrite SRI Miles, Display ECU Data. This tool can use basic bin files or Chrysler flash files to program. So a smooth way to address programming used modules. No more hot swapping or file editing. A video is uploaded at the APNT Facebook page if interested. facebook​.​com/APNT-Automotiv…

I don't know why that is on there. We are 100% USA. Software is developed in Ohio.

AWESOME. Thanks for clarifying. For guys out in the sticks, (even the sunny ones), can we send an ECU, we have found, to somebody with this tool?

I’m trying to have a clear understanding. Does this tool allow you to use modules with different part numbers?
