Does the RR need to be re-flashed with radio swap

Post by mcleaves » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:22 pm

So it turns out a DNX693s I installed in a 2009 Buick Enclave a few weeks ago was defective. I have the replacement in hand. I am hoping I can just swap the radio with no new programming to the RR module. I can't recall if I needed to supply the serial number or something to flash it.

You need to re-flash it with the new radio's serial number.

Can the RR module be flashed while installed in a vehicle? Do all the cables need to be unplugged before flashing? I need to do a radio swap, but I'd like to leave the module in place if possible, as it was a chore to get it tucked in there. (I kept my mini-USB cable, which is accessible, plugged into the RR.)

The RR cannot have power from the vehicle, or it will not detect on the computer. You must either disconnect your battery, pull the fuse for the radio circuit, or disconnect the RR.
