    Default A40 Full Read option

    Hi All,

    A number of people have been asking for this, so here is the first test for you to see if this is going to work out for those that are interested.
    This is a manual process to make this work, but if feedback is good we will include the modified script in each EFILive update (but you will still need to manually rename the files as majority of users do not want this option).

    All you need to do is download attached zip and extract the script 'A40_R_Full.obj' in to the folder -
    :\Program Files (x86)\EFILive\V8\Config (Win7, 64 bit assumed)

    You should create a back up of the 'cal only' read script first should you need to revert back to it.
    In the folder listed above will already be a file called - 'A40_R.obj'
    Rename this something like A40_R_Cal.obj, then you know it is the original calibration only read script.

    Now change the name of the attached .obj file you just saved from A40_R_Full.obj to A40_R.obj
    I've also added the same script that will work with V8 build 277, same process as above to enable it.

    When you next attempt to read an A40 you should see that it is going to do a full read. V8 will only look for the script A40_R.obj,so whatever one you have named as that is the one that will be used to read the TCM.
    Be warned, probably don't try this on a truck as it takes about one hour to do a full read of the A40 (thanks for that Allison).

    Cheers,
    Ross

    Interesting. When you say "don't try this on a truck" do you mean only on the bench?

    Were there many OS updates for the A40 trans controllers?

    Thanks

    Well you can do it on a truck as long as you have a spare battery to start it when the read is done

    Ross, I tried opening the full-read file in V7, and it comes up with an error message saying unsupported calibration?

    And if you just read the cals only on that one does V7 open the file?

    Yes, I just did a full read and cal read on the same TCM....cal read opens normally in V7, full read gives unrecognized PCM error.

    With the full read, the OS also reports weird, shows OS as 00074624. The actual OS of the TCM is 15827766.

    Want me to email both cal and full reads to you Ross?
