did you clear the abs codes after the module install
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

 

 

I ran a diagnostic check after the install. 1214 and 1248 were not current or in history.

Codes 1246.1282.1284.1287and 1288 were current. I cleared all codes and started the car. Stability and brake pad message were still there.

I shut off and checked codes again. Codes 1246, 1282,1284,1287,and 1288 were again current. These 5 codes were not current or in history on any diagnostic check before the install.

If the ecbm is ok can it be programed to the correct options? If it can, does it need to be removed from the vehicle tp be programed?

Expert:  car tech replied 2 years ago.

they are usually able to be set-up on the vehicle with the gm tech2 scanner

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

If the ecbm is bad I will need to replace it. If I want to find another used ecbm to replace it with, how can I tell if the replacement ecbm has the same options as my original ecbm?

Expert:  car tech replied 2 years ago.
it is usually done by the tag numbers on the ebcm
