IMPORTANT: DO NOT REPLACE THE CONTROL MODULE.

It is possible to recover a control module after a failed programming attempt. Follow the service procedure below in order to recover a control module after a failed programming attempt or when IDSS cannot communicate with the control module.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE

1.Instructions for Control Module Recovery Fully close IDSS.

2.Disconnect the IDSS interface module connector from the vehicle data link connector (DLC) [if connected].

3.Turn OFF the ignition and wait 1 minute.

4.Connect IDSS to the vehicle DLC and the PC USB port (if not already connected).

5.Turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF.

6.Open IDSS.

7.Choose the correct vehicle information on the IDSS Main screen and then click Submit.

8.Click on Controller Programming from the table of contents.

IMPORTANT: The left IDSS bulb on the ICON toolbar MUST be green at this point indicating IDSS is connected to the vehicle AND is talking to the PC USB port. If it is still red, check that the IDSS interface module is being powered up by making sure the IDSS interface module power LED is red. If it is red, then the PC may not be talking with the USB port and a PC reboot may be necessary.

 

9.If IDSS automatically goes to a VIN screen under Engine Control Module (ECM) Programming > Software and Calibrations > Replace and Reprogram Controller, go to Step 10. Otherwise, go to Step 18.
