WARNING
The control module is sensitive to electrostatic discharges. Never touch the pins on a control module with your hands or clothes. Ground yourself by touching the car body/engine when unplugging or plugging in the connector on the car's control module. When installing, place the old control module in the return packaging without touching its pins. Keep the new control module in its packaging as long as possible.


NOTE
Before removing a control module, Tech 2 must be used to separate the control module from the car. From the "All" menu, select the control module under "And/Remove". Then select "Remove" and follow the instructions. The ignition key must be in the ON position. TIS 2000 may be required. Once the control module has been separated from the car, turned the ignition key to the OFF position. The control module can then be removed. Carry out the "Remove" action with Tech2 even if the control module cannot be contacted or is completely missing because data in other control modules must be changed. Security codes will be reset, bus lists updated, data in other control modules updated and data that may have to be written into a new control module read and displayed.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2.  
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4.  
  5. Remove the control unit by carefully pulling it out. Use tool 82 93 474 to remove the unit.
    NOTE
    Take care when releasing the locking mechanism on the connector so as not to damage the connector. Pull the halves straight apart to avoid bending the pins.
