Q3: Does KTAG ECU programmer have limit number of times, only 32 and then throw it away?

1) it is our KTAG not from other sellers;
2) you are required to know how to change the chip otherwise the KTAG will be damaged.

Solution: If you update the K-Tag Machine, it will encouter this error picture. It means your K-tag is bad, you need to send back for repair. And you need to pay the repair fees, because it is not updated.

Problem Two: Bug Error

Solution: If you encounter this error, it is BUG error, it is the original software problem, it means you still can not use the function, you need to wait till its update. So if you don't want to get this error, please don't use this function, the K-Tag can work normally, it is not the product problem.
