The BeCM Sync-Mate solves an increasingly common problem of P38 Range Rovers (95 to 2002) being left stranded because the BeCM, in effect, forgets the immobiliser code it needs send to the EMS (engine management system) for it to start the engine.
Previously when this happened, there used to be only two ways to get moving again: The first was to call out a garage with a diagnostic tool, like our Faultmate MSV-2, to reset the system and then pay the mechanic a "call out" fee for approximately 2 minutes work. This will fix the problem; until the next time.
The second way is to fit a new BeCM which will cost about ?600 including programming and fitting. As time goes on, this method appears not to always totally fix the fault. To cut costs, we have heard that the manufacturer is now providing only exchange re-furbished BeCMs. However they do not always replace the memory part of the unit if it is still appears to be working satisfactorily. Six months down the line after you have bought your replacement BeCM you could still find yourself with the same problem, and although the Part would be under warranty, you are still stuck.
But now there is a third way! The BeCM Sync-Mate. Availiable for all three Engine Management types (Click Here for help to identify yours). Within a minute your BeCM will be automatically resynchronised with the engine management system and you will be on your way.
To re-synchronise your BeCM, you simply plug the BeCM Sync-Mate in and it resets the BeCM for you. No fuss, no palaver and more importantly, no costly call out fee just for two minutes work.
When it has finished working, it lets you know what it has done. With intelligent use of a high intensity flashing LED, the BeCM Sync-Mate will inform the user that the BeCM: Is already synchronised, or it is has been re-synchronised. Finally it could also inform you that there has been a communication error - in which case it will then also tell you the cause of that error.
