    Restoring electrically corrupted TCM's.

    Fixing a corrupted TCM is not possible without full overwrite capability. I have about 50 A40 TCM's that are probably fine, but because of the corruption, cannot be used, as TIS does not allow the overwrite in these cases.

    For anyone who knows, with this change, does the full flash icon appear clickable in V7?

    Not sure what you mean by that.

    In many TCM's I have noticed that a software corruption that leaves the file damaged in some way, TIS will not recognize the TCM as viable. I think I have had this happen with some ECM's also. Once full flashed with EFIlive, it can then be written to with TIS subscription. I believe most of these corruptions are electrically induced by battery chargers, or jumper cables.

    TIS is just very fussy, they try to protect the end user from dumping in what GM consider incompatible programs, if all the reported numbers don't line up it usually shuts you out. I'm not sure how that works at dealer level, I know there is some controllers that TIS will not flash unless it has a full program in it, which would make a failed flash recovery an interesting situation.

    I think this describes the problem I have seen

    Ross, is the A50 full read option available? If so, can you provide that replacement file?

    I tried the new A40 file swap in this thread. V7 still reads as cal read (5 minutes). V8 does not read at all. I just get the message, "script file not supported by current software version". 8.2.2 build 269 is what I have.

    I've updated my original post with a full read script that will work with V8 Build 277 (which at this present time is the most current release).
    V7 read will not change with these files, that is fixed in the software.
