Start New Session

 

If you get unqiue identifier error:

ID car with key off, start new session, NO, check for blank pcm cycle key. Only need tear tag. Program pcm. Do not turn key on until after fails the first time, then turn on select retry.

 

Easier to use ForScan. Could maybe use the Autel if the module is completely black. Remans may not be blank.
