2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 5.3L (3 LC9) 4-spd (4L60-E)

Why am I not able to program a new TCM as I have already done more than 100 times ??? 3 hour to try with SPS2. Each time * NOT APPLICABLE *?!?. I called GM's techline and they apparently know there is a problem, so they gave me access to the old SPS for 24 hours and ......... same problem. Now is there something or a way to do that I don't know?

If you scan the vehicle do you still have communication with tcm? If you don't then tcm is bricked from first attempt and you need a new one. Is it a brand new oem tcm? Or a dorman? I have been very unsuccessful with dorman tcms

I have come to find the problem, the transmission shop did not install the correct part (wrong part number)

Good little follow-up !!! My client replaced the valvebody / tcm with a Dorman .. Because the parts to the dealer are backorder. Is there a chance that I have a hard time reprogramming it?

Finally with the TCM Dorman. The programming is already up to date but it is still necessary with SPS2 * REPLACE REPROGRAM * to program the VIN !!! And everything is working fine.
