Re: help reprogram pcm

This car is central configuration (CC) based (2011MY). You need to upload your factory CC ABD using BdyCM Central Configuration (Main) function and see if it fixes the problem.

Also you need to install the latest (2.3.37) FORScan version. You use 2.3.35 that is outdated already.
