FICM flashes/ How do you know what flash you have

The FICM in my truck fried probably around a year ago. I have been reading a lot that the inductive heating flash is really hard on the FICM. These things are not cheap I think I payed like $1,400 (including diagnosis, part, labor). I just don't want this to happen again, I would rather pay $200 and get my FICM flashed by ID.

Now to my question how can I figure out what flash I have? So I will know if it's the old inductive heating or the newer flash that's "easier" on the FICM.

Unless you have been reflashed in the last few months, you don't have the flash that is purportedly easier on the FICM.

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
