    Where are you trying to have it mapped?

    I had this issue when I took my daily to Rtech, the car had a revo trial on it previously before my ownership, and it kept blocking Nick out of getting into the ECU to flash a new map.

    In the end I think it took him over an hour to crack it, by doing something fancy when booting up. I got the impression from what he said at the time that most mappers would be unable to crack the locked ECU

    Yea think I best speak to my local revo dealer as my friend who put the new map on for me isn't that clued up on pc mapping etc, he just reads the ECU with some programme & sends a copy to out side company who then send him a new map to suit my car at a cost,

    Don't think he has the vitamins to passed the block in place from revo..

    Hope revo can just remove it for me

    Most decent tools can map over a Revo... failing that boot mode will do it...

    Revo code can't normally be read out by anything other than Revo tools... this is why your friend can't map it... technically copyright theft and Revo wouldn't be at all happy that you have done that...

    Go to your local revo dealer and get them to flash it with the stock file.

    If you fancy a remap just do it , revo trial screws you from what I've heard. You may as well just go revo if you're doing the trial,or research first if you want to get the map done and find the right provider.
