I just purchased my cable a couple of days ago and have been reading as much as i can but i have a question, when you speak of the Flash Block do you mean the white connector that is also disconected under the dash or the kick panel? If so you use the other clip that is comming with the tactix cable, right? or do i not need it for the 04 rex ### that would be cool...


Kudos

Maybe this stuff could be added to the thread start(1st post).This is a link of info that NEEDS to be fulley read before you start flashing/logging your car.One because it will answer ALOT of questions and two because it will save you from alot of heartache and a broken car or dead ecu....

Nice write up. Wish I would have read it before I flashed my Stage 4 limp map in. Had to have some way to get the car to Indiana safely, wasn't about to put my baby on a trailer.

My Tactrix wouldn't connect for anything, then I found the problem. Wasn't hitting ok fast enough. Figured out I could hit ok, THEN put the car in the ON position. Yeah, my car's a freak.
