No. It is a reader, not a programmer.

But...

You do realize that the first highlight does not jive with the second highlight?
It either does adapt, or it doesn't, and our ECUs adapt.
When you change a part, it may take a few days, but the computer will adapt to the new conditions. You resetting them to factory will just make it happen a little bit quicker, if at all faster.
OTT, what readers/scanner/programmer do you use or recommend?

What I said above. https://discoweb.org/index.php?threads/device-for-clearing-codes.97655/post-1087587

In the nearly 15 years I've had my D2, I've needed it to be programmed once - when I took the airbags off the rear and put in springs. Not worth the $100s (or even $1000s) for a single vehicle (or even manufacturer) license to "program" to me. Reading and clearing codes on the ABS/SRS/ECU are just fine for me, and I imagine 99.9% of all Rover owners. YMMV

The things that people are "told" they need a computer to fix - bleeding brakes, replacing a MAF, etc - they really don't.
