2019 Subaru Impreza 2.0L (FB20) (TR580) — 4S3GTAA65K3752177
No Start After Bcm Replacement
Security Theft / No Start

Hi group , I was called to get this vehicle started again after this shop installed a used Bcm (under drivers side dash , also a fuse box) so I tried to do a Bcm reset with my Autel ms909 shows successfully completed, tried reprogramming the key with the im508 Autel and no good , so I called around and (direct hit, Subaru tech​.​net) found I will have to get a new Bcm and use select monitor to flash it , so I bought the Suburu cd (attached picture) and downloaded it to my laptop, but i cannot seem to get the software to open without a error message but it showed successfully downloaded it to my hard drive and everything seemed to go smoothly during all the install. I tried to contact tech support, no call back yet. (This vehicle does start and run with the old Bcm ) anyone have any ideas if I’m on the right track with this Subaru cs from suba tech​.​net that woks with the j box or do I need a factory handheld scantool? Thanks for any help?

Lee, The best way to address this BCM is with the AR32a. The BCM uses a very small EEPROM. Andromeda has an adapter that works nicely to address. Just copy and paste the EEPROM and the BIU /BCM is plug and play. I even use this method for new parts. There is no issue with keys or key programming. Just a few minutes on the bench.

In regards to the DVD. I believe they have a compilation issue. I just got the same one and it is not working. I did install java, microsoft C++ libraries and it seemed to help some.

Ok , thanks ! and if and when it does work is it just for engine/trans flash or is it supposed to be able to initialize a new Bcm Also? I was under the impression that it would ack like a fully functional scan/flash tool . Like the tech 2 simulator back in the day.

Lee, I don't think it is going to have a BCM initialize property, that is an SSM4 function. Also consider it is an immo part which will require LSID/VSP and customer information. The DVD does have other modules in there but more for updates.

Michael, Thanks for all the help , I called the fine folks at Andromeda, and they wanted me to watch the YouTube video first to see if that was what I had . So to be sure they won’t sell me a tool that won’t work on this one I’m actively working on and it is different the one they have the adapter for is for older suburbs which have the separate bcm , this one I have is a different style that…

Lee, I believe AE Tools may have it. You may also look here: Subaru Equipment Program (subaruretailersolutions​.​com) Be aware there are lots of fake tools on Amazon, eBay, Aliexpress. You will not likely find genuine tools on there. It is a fairly expensive tool and it won't work with used. The only way to deal with used is to copy data from original to the replacement. I do not…

Subaru has (at least) two authorized providers, Nuspire and Ohio Diagnostics, LLC. Paul at Ohio Diagnostics, LLC seems to be the best choice as he offers great support. Nuspire is the newest vendor, Paul has been the traditional provider for like, ever. I helped a customer with it last year it was $2900 for the SSM IV Software and $3500 for the DSTi. Software does not “time out”. It is up to…

Update , looks like I need to go back and change the Destination settings , looks like in the data it’s set to push to start and it’s a blade key , can this be done in market mode or only factory mode? Because I already put the new Bcm in market mode , but I cannot seem to get it back into factory mode (if that’s what is needed to change the destination code ?) attached photo mine is set to…

Lee, My experience is that with Subaru, if you miss a step you can't go back. Hopefully this is not the case and you can correct it.

Thanks everyone for your input , but we bailed out of this one for now , we tried everything except swapping the mcu between them (because this ibcm does not have the mini Eeprom any longer ) and as far as we searched we cannot find the proper way to fix it , the OEM select monitor is even on backorder due to hardware issue’s, but again thank you all who responded!
