Need help Programming TCU
I'm trying to add a used TCU to my car for bluetooth.

Added $664 to VO. The radio now has the phone option but just with two dashes rather than the phone logo. I definitely have the MOST fiber set up properly. So the TCU is in the loop.

I also can't read or write the TCU with NCSExpert.

Hopefully someone can give me a hand, at this point I'm willing to pay someone.

I'm starting to wonder if the issue is the TCU itself. It's dated 2004.

TCUM will need an updated firmware for you to be able to write to it, Don't even bother if you don't have an ICOM or OPS head.

Hmmm. How am I supposed to turn Bluetooth on?

I know people have done this with NCS.

Tcum will not accept modified fsw_psw's nor FA Writes without the latest latest firmware wrote to it. after that, do a dealer retro fit (+kxxx) and code CAS,TCUM FAS and Mask WITHOUT manipulating FSW_PSW.

that will give you bluetooth.

Can update the TCU, and retrofit it to your car if you need some help with that. Feel free to let me know.
