had to go used new was 500$ hate goin that route have to do it sometimes was flashed off the car gave them vin had it flashed.work in automotive last 18 years done this many times first time had this problem and its with my personal car. go figure it came out of a 99 malibu which is basicly the same car just with a chey symbol instead of an olds symbol. if used computer was bad it wouldnt of flashed ran into that before with a cadillac.thanks for your replay.

if the unit was bad. re flashing will not work. if you still have your old unit, check for a re man unit from the dealer. around here they are 300 plus original gm core only
