KTuner for 03-06 Element Automatic and Manual
KTuner is for off-road research and development testing only. Every vehicle should be flashed back to factory before being driven on a public road.
What are my options?
• KTunerECU End User System – Hardware/software. Datalog and make your own changes – $449
• KTunerFlash Units Are Not Compatible With These ECUs
How do I get KTuner?
• Contact a dealer for dealer testing or to order a KTuner kit.
-03-04 model ECUs do not work.
-03-04 AT Elements are currently not compatible with a newer ECU.
-03-04 MT Elements must use an ECU from a 2005 model or factory replacement ECU. ECUs can be ordered through our dealers.
-05-06 AT/MT Can have the stock ECU modified by a dealer in order to have it reflashed or use an end user KTuner board. You can also get a used ECU to have modified.
Will anything change?
-If using an ECU other than factory the immobilizer light on the dashboard will flash. You can disable the immobilizer in the software and unplug the immobilizer unit to prevent flashing on the dashboard or you can have the ECU sync’d to your immobilizer at any Honda/Acura dealer. *If you have already locked your KTuner unit to the ECU unlock it before they sync the immobilizer or tell them not to change the ECU VIN number. If they change the VIN number the KTuner unit will no longer communicate with the ECU if it’s locked to the previous VIN already.*
Part numbers for usable ECUs include:
37820-PZD-A06 and A07
37820-PZD-A56 through A59
37820-PZD-A66 through A69
37820-PZD-A71 and A72
37820-PZD-A81 and A82
Automatic ECUs will run a manual vehicle with no issues.
