Hi, new to this. Can anyone tell me the procedure for replacing an engine control unit on an Astra J using vaux com. I have Delphi also but no function in it. Done plenty of Astra H but not getting the same options for Astra J, TIA.

I think it's 131223d I'll have to check again to make sure it keeps telling me there is no updates but found this last nite 120309a is that the latest version?

The latest is the one showing in my signature, 160115a but unless you have a genuine Vauxcom you will not be able to run that version.
Coverage on the J is patchy at best, but better in the later versions.

Yeh it is the genuine one I'll download the latest software separate and try. Is it the same procedure as the Astra H.

If it is a genuine one (which would have cost upwards of £600) then the built in update function should work.

Just make sure you don't brick it.

I think you will find the procedure for this is online only and unless the ecu has been correctly divorced from the donor car using the online SPS function i think its (prepare controller for removal) or similar and an MDI unit then it wont work, what engine/ecu is it, it may be possible to clone it.

It is the genuine vauxcom just keeps showing no updates available. It's for an Astra 1.7dtj I just got one out of breakers with the same numbers taught it would jus be a similar process as the older Astras

There are at least two later versions than 131223d.
150406b and 160115a.
Odd that you are not seeing them.

If you have a genuine interface just click the update button in the software. This will then connect to ilexa and update to the latest version.

A shout soon as I go into internet update it comes up you have the latest version and when I hit ok it goes straight back out it won't let me hit the check for updates. See photo.
