System Operation

Module Programming Menu

Module Programming is listed under the Toolbox tab after starting an IDS session with a vehicle. The module programming menu is disabled when a manual vehicle session is created.

The Module Programming menu has 4 selections:

  • Programmable Module Installation (PMI)
  • Module Reprogramming
  • Programmable Parameters
  • As-Built

These selections may not be present for all vehicles.

Programmable Module Installation (PMI)

Programmable Module Installation (PMI) is a scan tool process which configures settings in a new module. Data used for the Programmable Module Installation (PMI) process is automatically downloaded from the original module and stored when a scan tool session is started. If this data cannot be retrieved from the module being replaced, the scan tool may prompt for As-Built data entry or display a list of parameter values that need to be manually selected. Some modules are reprogrammed during Programmable Module Installation (PMI) when a strategy/calibration update is available.

It is important that the scan tool identifies the vehicle and obtains configuration data prior to removing any modules. The new module must be able to communicate with the scan tool in order to carry out Programmable Module Installation (PMI).

Module Programming

Module reprogramming (also referred to as "flashing") is a scan tool process which updates the strategy/calibration in a module. During module programming, the IDS will read the current software levels within the module and compare this information with the IDS database. If there is an update, it will be displayed on the IDS screen.

Reprogramming a module with the same level of software does not improve module operation or repair a hardware failure. Module reprogramming is automatically carried out during Programmable Module Installation (PMI) when a later strategy/calibration is available.

Limit module reprogramming to circumstances where a published FSA, TSB or SSM procedure recommends doing so.

A module cannot communicate with other modules on the communication network while being reprogrammed. After the reprogramming process, clear any network communication Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) which may have been set in other modules.

Some modules are reprogrammed in coordination with other modules. Follow the IDS key cycling instructions carefully to avoid reprogramming errors, including failure of programming one or more of the modules.

Programmable Parameters

Programmable parameters are customer preference items that may be modified by the dealer via the scan tool or in some cases, modified by the customer following a procedure listed in the Owner's Literature. While many configuration options may exist for a module, only a few of these options are programmable parameters. Some parameters must be changed in multiple modules at the same time.

Adaptive Learning and Calibration

Some modules require a separate learning procedure be carried out if replaced as part of a repair procedure. For adaptive learning and calibration instructions, refer to the specific module removal and installation procedures.

Vehicle Identification (VID) Block

Vehicle identification block commonly stores powertrain configuration items such as VIN, tire size, axle ratio, and whether or not the vehicle is equipped with cruise control.

Transmission Identification

NOTICE: If the solenoid body identification and strategy does not match the solenoid body information in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), transaxle damage or driveability concerns can occur.

The solenoid body has a unique strategy data file that must be downloaded to the PCM. There is a 7-digit solenoid body identification and a 13-digit solenoid body strategy for each solenoid body. When a new solenoid body or transmission is installed, the scan tool must be used to get the solenoid body strategy data file and download it into the PCM. If the PCM is replaced and the PCM data cannot be inhaled or exhaled, the solenoid body identification and solenoid body strategy must be downloaded into the PCM

Rear Drive Unit (RDU) Identification

NOTE: Record the 4-digit bar code information before installing the Rear Drive Unit (RDU).

The AWD system is equipped with a bar coded active torque coupling solenoid. The 4-digit bar code is located on the bottom of the Rear Drive Unit (RDU). The PCM uses this 4-digit bar code information to match the clutch characteristics of the active torque coupling solenoid with the desired output torque. If the bar code information does not match the PCM information, driveline damage or driveability concerns can occur.

When a PCM is replaced, the new PCM needs to be configured with the existing active torque coupling solenoid bar code information.

If the rear drive axle is replaced, the existing PCM needs to be configured with the new active torque coupling solenoid bar code information.

As-Built Data

As-Built data is a VIN-specific module configuration record. During vehicle build, the configuration from all modules is downloaded and stored in the As-Built database. As-Built data does not reflect customer preference items that have been changed from the default state. These items need to be changed using programmable parameters after the module is configured.

As-Built data is not the same as module calibration data.

It is not necessary to obtain As-Built data unless directed to do so by the diagnostic scan tool. This data is retrieved automatically from the technician service publication website. If automatic data retrieval fails, the data can be entered into IDS manually.
