My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Yes it does. It needs to be flashed to match the vehicle's software to be able to communicate properly.

Also, that flashing 10 times can also indicate a shift motor failure as well. However, 75-80% of the time it is a failed control module, which you replaced already.


You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see,

touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!

I have done the key reset and all is working except 4x4 light comes on.this is a all wheel drive.does not have shift buttons.

Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

Light comes on or it comes on and flashes 10 times? If still flashing, the module is not being read properly by the PCM.

It still has a transfer case motor for the road stability feature on the vehicle. It can be acting up. We tend to change both in the shop because of the headaches that they both cause for the same light sequence.

Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

It is inside the transfer case.
