What is a iod module

Customer Question

What is a iod module

IOD stands for Install On Delivery. The IOD is either a handled fuse or just a handled contact (depending on vehicle model) that is used to easily remove power from constant-powered devices in the car. This is used for when the vehicle is in shipping from the factory to the dealership so that the constant power items (clock, radio memory, dome lights, etc) do not run down the battery during shipping and storage.
Once the vehicle is sold, the fuse/contact is installed (Installed On Delivery) to allow all functions of the car to work.

Did you blow out the IOD fuse when you put the new module in?

If I understood correctly and you replaced the module and immediately the IOD blew, then you would be dealing with a bad new module; if it blew with the old one too, then you have a problem further down the line that needs addressing.
