Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

When you install the new control module the control module has to be coded.This has to be done with a dealers sds machine.If this is not done you may see an issue like this here.Below are the instructions on replacing this control module.

If this was done already and this issue is occuring make sure you installed the correct part number control module and if this is all o.k. then I suspect the new replacement control module you installed is faulty.I have seen new and used control modules faulty in some cases when installed and you would need to obtain another one either used or if new under parts warranty from the facility you had purchased it from.

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 ( should be a link to click on here or above).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.

Thanks Pete
