Honda J2534 Rewrite

Oil Consumption P0302

Hey guys.

I have fixed the misfire and addressed the oil issue with this accord regarding bulletin 10-033. 

I did update with the latest software from Honda before beginning.

Specifically states to update the pcm if i have a same or lower software number. I only found the software for trans shudder which i did and the software number completed to 37805-r70-a830 previously 820. the program part number is 37805-r70-a83.

So my question is did i update to the correct file now or do i still have to enter in a bulletin number to get the correct file? i did try to enter in the 10-033 and 13-078 with no luck. i dont do much programming so i was just unsure if i used the correct cal filer. thanks!

Generally when updating controllers on Honda products the software program will first check to see if updates are available then suggest that they can be updated. I am unsure about you entering in a bulletin number with Honda ??

The bulletin should have the updated software version listed in it. I just did an RDX for the TC judder issue yesterday without entering the bulletin number (17-017). In my case I updated to 37806-R8A-A540 from 37806-R8A-A530. The J2534 rewrite application will list the current software and the update software before you click start. More than likely, you're just fine. The Honda software will…

I was told that any update newer than the bulletin you are trying to program will already have the past changes built into it. I ran into this when looking for an update for a CRV and that was when I looked it up. My understanding is if there is a newer bulletin than the one that you are looking for when you typed it in the search bar it will just go to that one instead.
