Yea I see the same thing.

It always shows me that the module can be coded 1 more time..but I see that message all the time when coding the module again.

Is it true that the dme can be flashed 30-50 times? Flash meaning "vin flashed". I don't think tuning the dme counts as a cycle as you arent writing the vin number again. I heard that writing a vin results in a recorded flash number. Confirmation?
