Flash programming is a method of programming or updating the flash file in the Machine Electronic Control Module (ECM). Cat® Electronic Technician (Cat ET) Service Tool is used to flash program a file into the memory of the Machine ECM.

Note: Customer versions of Cat ET do not have the capability for flash programming. Consult your local AVSpare Dealer for assistance.

If you do not have the flash file, use the "Flash File Search" tool on the Service Technician Workbench (STW) to obtain the flash file for your machine. Alternatively, use the "Service Software Files" feature on SIS Web to obtain the flash file for your machine. You must have the machine serial number to search for the flash file. After locating the correct flash file, download the flash file to your PC. Write down the name of the flash file for future reference.
