    Default Authentication Code

    Often when customers enquire about PCM/VIN licenses on their FlashScan cables, EFILive support require two pieces of information: The FlashScan Serial Number and the FlashScan Authentication Code. Here's how to find them:
    1. Connect FlashScan to the PC.
    2. Run the Tuning Tool Software.
    3. Select the menu option:
    4. Help->FlashScan V1 PCM licensing
      or
      Help->FlashScan V2 VIN licensing
    Please note, the Authantication Code is not the same thing as the Registration Key. The Authentication code contains 3 segments, the Registration Key (printed on the Blue license card) contains 4 segments.

    The Authentication code will be updated each time a new PCM/VIN license is added. Actually as noted by some customers, the Authentication code is a rolling code and also changes each time the EFILive software is restarted.

    See attached image for example.

    Regards
    Paul

    Did you do what the message suggested, and download and install the latest software and firmware?

    Download the latest V7 and V8 software here:
    http://www.efilive.com/latest/cat/download-efilive

    You must download and install both V7.5 and V8.
    Then once V8 is installed, run the "EFILive V8 Scan and Tune" software and click on the [Check Firmware] button to update the firmware.

    Am I able to purchase a new vin license with a previously purchased auth code? I ask this because the the option to reorder is on my account dashboard... Click image for larger version.

    Thanks! I ended up just going for it and it worked for me, but thanks for the reply! I'm not sure why I hadn't ever noticed that option before, but I'm glad to see that it's there.... That's a timesaver

    I can't get my code. I reinstalled 7.5 and 8 from the site, hooked up v2, ran scan/tune tool and clicked on license and I get this error

    "No device connected. Please connect a flash scan or auto cal device."

    No other program is running. V2 screen is lit up and says connected to PC.

    The message "Connected to PC" makes me think the firmware in your V2 is very old. Can you check the firmware version in your V2 using the V2's on screen menus. The firmware version needs to be V2.07.xx or later.
