    Default Trying to Flash LLY TCM

    Had this problem a while back... Trying to Flash a TCM tune. It makes it all the way to "Erasing" and hangs there.. Then will throw a 322 code and thats it.

    Ive pulled Info, Radio, amp, Ing, TBC batt, TBC ing1 and still no luck.

    Ill be able to get the Trace files off the lap top later when I get home. But It does about the same thing.

    Here is the V2 trace.

    USR_0218.zip

    Any other things or fuses worth trying would be nice...

    Just this TCM has always givin me crap since day 1. The ECM Flashes like a dream never had a hiccup.

    FYI everything is up to date.

    EDIT:

    Here is the V8 Trace File...

    AL5_W_20140212_123821.zip

    Here is the V7.5 trace file for the successful flash.

    After messing around with it for a while i did discover something... It refuses to flash in BBX all together... and using V8.

    BUT! it will flash using V7.5 perfectly.. Highspeed mode and everything without removing any fuses... why would this be? Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    When it refuses to flash from V2/BBX or V8, what is the error message...?

    Also:
    - what build versions of V7/V8 software...?
    - what V2 firmware version...?
    - post your Options.txt file.

    I always use V7 to flash, unless its a controller that specifically requires V8 to flash.

    I dunno, just habit I guess...

    That is pretty bad advice Ben.

    Your post should read ALWAYS flash with V8, unless there is a specific deficiency that prevents V8 from being used. Flash speeds, BBX features, and the quick setup pretty much make V7 redundant for everything other than tune file editing.

    All first line support questions are directed to attempt the function in V8 before requesting support as V7 will no longer be receiving updates. (ie if a feature works in V8, then there is no need to fix or review V7)

    Cheers

    It's like at the gm dealer we have to use the tech2 to flash the lb7 ecm due to the tech2 feeds the information slower then the other devices we have

    Cindy I apologize about the bad advice.

    Its just that 99% of the controllers that I deal with are LB7/LLY/LBZ/LMM and 5spd/6spd Allison, which ive never had one problem with in V7...since I obviously tune with V7, its just natural/easier to flash with V7 as well, rather than saving the file, opening V8, opening the file, then flashing.

    As I said, habit I guess, "if it aint broke..."
