The ECU is in recovery mode so it is working. Battery voltage is as low as 8.6V.

What you need to do is put a battery charger on the vehicle and keep uploading until it comes out of recovery mode.

I'd still like to know why the ECU was opened.

IT is in recovery mode. That just means that you need to upload a calibration and it will be out of recovery mode.

You're trying to use one FlashPro for two vehicles. Lock it to one vehicle and don't unlock it.
