Did you get your module from a dealer, or parts house? You either have the wrong module or a bad one. These modules are vehicle rpo specific, meaning they are preprogrammed for a specific vehicle, with specific options. If you got the module fromn a dealer, have them verify the part number against the vin number of your vehicle to make sure they gave you the right one.

Your welcome. I have had alot of trouble with rebuilt modules. My experience has been that if you replace a module and gain a whole new problem---module is junk.
