OBC Help???

I just did the conversion from 11 button to the 18 Button OBC. Everything works except the "Check Control". It use to work on the 11 Button OBC and was just wondering if anyone else had this problem and what they did to fix it.

Anyone have any Ideas let me know.

I read somewhere that I might have to get it re coded or something but, I'm not sure what that entails and why I would if it was already working on the old one.

My car is in my garage for the winter so I'm unable to test everything out, but by the looks of what I can test it works pretty good. I can let you know in the spring when I take it back out if you want.

yup, everything will work if your vehicle already has an 11 button.
If you have an 8 button currently, then not everything will work when you do the 18 button conversion.
