Proceed to reflash the module.
On vehicles that have multiple flash updates available, always complete and verify each flash update before attempting the next one.
After all flash reprogramming is completed, read and erase all DTCs in all modules on the vehicle. A variety of DTCs may be set, which are usually
Verify the update by reading the new part number using the DRBIII(R). A good double check is to read the part number using DRBIII(R) stand alone.
At times, other modules, wired in parallel, to the DLC connector have prevented flash reprogramming sessions to be successful. After the failed attempt,
Block Echo/Compare Errors
Block Echo and Block Compare errors are often caused by voltage fluctuations, faulty I/O cables (CH7OOOA, CH7005, CH7010) or faulty
Checksum Errors are generally caused by corrupt flash update files, which can be caused by DRBIII(R) memory problems. If the DRBIII(R) has been

The recovery information will be displayed on your DRBIII(R), at the start of a flash session, only if you previously encountered a problem that
Enhanced abort recovery features:
Reduces the amount of time for the Module ID process.
Lowers the risk of possible user mistakes by presenting the user the Year, Model, Engine, and Controller Type.
Currently only applicable to Engine and Transmission flash reprogramming.
The enhanced abort recovery file will only be erased upon a successful flash or manually by the user.
