FDRS programming problem update
Ok, this is an update to an earlier question I asked in regards to programming the cruise control module on the above-listed vehicle.
The original problem was I could not program configure and align the cruise control module.
FDRS kept giving me an error message saying I did not have the appropriate security access.
The final solution was you have to sign in under that module that you wish to program.
The way you sign in is, click on to the module, go under the pats programming setting, and your national automotive service task force credentials will need to be entered.
At this point it will ask you if you want to program a body control module or an engine control module or exit, hit exit.
Now, choose programmable module installation, if need be click the configure tab, and proceed with your alignment / calibration.
You will need to fill out a D1 form and perform the appropriate positive identification just as if you are programming keys. I actually had the customer come down to the shop and bring a second key in the event that I needed one.
This was the first time I have used FDRS. It appears to be confusing.
I expect we will see a lot more of this security access required.
Hope this saves someone some pain.
I'm glad you got it handled and provided feedback. Thank you.
Dean, Somehow we saw your original post but not this one. Thanks for the help. Again. First time user of FDRS too here - confusing but not as bad as a couple of other brands that we spun our wheels on.
Dean, When you say "click on the module, go under the pats programming setting" How do you mean? I'm not seeing any pats tabs anywhere. I just installed FDRS and am at 22.5.2. Stuck on that same problem you're describing. Thanks -Leo
