    air ride module reprograming

    had a bad parasitic drain that my deltran battery tender could not keep up with. Found my air ride module was causing the problem. they are hot all the time. removed plastic cover from module found burnt circuit board. replaced with a new module and now no drain but air ride light on. found that new module must be configured to my vehicle. have a new generation star but unsure how to do it. from what i can find old module has the config and must be removed and installed in new module. Anybody config a module using a ngs? wondering if it has to be done hot as NGS do not have a battery in them?

    Forscan is free software to read / modify / write Ford modules. Google it. You'll also need the correct OBDII interface.

    Codes B2477 config failure and U1026. Ok fix was use forscan to save config from old module. Then install new RASM module and load config to new RASM module. Trouble was light was still on. Had to go into VAPS which is in RASM module and configure it to a marauder which set RPM values. That cleared light. hope somebody uses this and thanks for the tip on forscan.
