WinKFP and/or Progman will give you a warning something like: "Programming Module xxx. Module can be programmed xx more times". However, I've seen the exact same number upon multiple programmings (I had to program my ABS several times because I fat-fingered the VIN [and the ABS takes the full VIN, not just the last 7] and it read the same every time). I'm not sure if it is a bug or some internal "health" measurement of the ECU, or what, but it seems that the message is BS.
