    I did that. Then figured out that you can copy and paste the whole thing and then change it to ECM only.

    Tested it and it works fine now. Thanks for all the help.

    Hello, New to EFILIVE and I was having simular problems and getting the $0281 as well. So I went back and set it up with only the ECM as I had originally had both the ECM and TCM in there. Now when I try to read the stock tune off my truck I get a $0331. Any ideas where Im screwing this up? Thanks in advance!

    Ok so....I went out this morning and pulled a lot of fuses (Listed below) and started trying again. This time I got the 0281 error again! So while sitting in the truck waiting on my 15sec to pass. I look over and realize my cell phone charger (no phone) and GPS are pluged into the CIG ligher and conv recp. The GPS was off but plugged in none the less. SO... I yank both of these and try again and....BINGO!!!! I cant believe I overlooked those yesterday, Boy do I feel like an ID10T. Well thanks for listening!

    I to am having this issue. I will try the advice listed here and report back.

    Let me make sure I'm understanding this correctly tho, I have 2 trucks both of witch use the LS1B controller. One has no TCM (4l60E) the other truck has an Allison. So are the config files required for a TCM if I don't want to log anything from the TCM? And if so will this give me this error message on the vehicle with no TCM?

    If you're not logging (or do not intend to log) from TCM, then remove the TCM and any of its pids from the BBX config file... then you will no longer need any of the TCM config files.

    If you select an option that has a separate ECM and TCM (i.e. E38+T43) but you have a manual vehicle (i.e. if one of the controllers does not exist), then you will get a $0281 error. That is because FlashScan does not receive any data from the non-existent trans controller.

    If that is the case, then either edit the setting to remove the trans controller or make a new entry with only the ECM specified.

    From the error code list.

    Also check after market radios, cell phone adapters etc, that do not listen to silence messages on the data bus, and your cig. lighter fuse.
