My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and see if this allows operation again.If this does not work I have seen in allot of cases where when programming doesnt complete or fails this can damage one or more ecu's in your vehicle needing replaced.Usually the ecu that was being programmed.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Good morning pete! I just finish taking apart the dashboard to take a look to the CAS and i opened it up and see in a little chip burnt out, what could of caused this? Do you think if i order another one it might happen the same thing? Have you gone thru this before burning a brand new cas? Or should not worry about it and get the new one? Well still i need to order it, im just worried that its gonna burn again...
