Rewriting the ODO Data and Transferring the Service Reminder System Data to a New Gauge Control Module

NOTE:
  • Obtain a new gauge control module before starting the rewriting process.
  • Rewriting is not possible on a gauge control module that will not communicate with the HDS.
  • Make sure that the HDS shows the correct VIN for the vehicle you are working on.
  • Once you have started this procedure, you must complete it before removing the HDS from the DLC.
  • Connect a battery jumper box (not a battery charger) to insure that correct battery voltage will be maintained.
