How to Read and Write Data for Bench or Boot

Recently, some customers gave feedback that they cannot find the appropriate guide and pinout for their ECUs in the PCMTuner Magic Car Tool (as shown in Figure 1). Some may work via OBD, but some may not work via Bench and Boot. The ECU connection is correct but still not working, many ECUs have the same problem. In fact, the possible cause is that they are not selecting the correct mode. Here list the corresponding PCMTuner ECU brands and models supported via OBD, Bench and Boot respectively.

Currently PCMTuner supports 67 modules incl. module 1 to module 74 (module 28, 37, 39, 41, 44, 49, 51 are not supported). Module 53 is on boot, Module 58 gearbox needs to open the cover, Module 71 is on bench, others are via OBD.
