Well, I doubt its the wires if it has functioned in the past, those are notorious for this condition. Honestly I'd say next time your out take it to where you installed the module although if you did it yourself I doubt this would be a conversation worth having... they are quite difficult to program at times, and the commands are within second timeframes consecutively. Technically it should only have to be reprogrammed, would you like me to see if I can be of any further assistance?

Can you confirm the swi-rc unit does work with a Blaupunkf radio ?

If you see SWC written anywhere, it would only be for compatibility.

Well, you did not offer any useful information, and above that seemed to ignore any comments I had made.
This experience was not good in any way.
