Check Power and GND and Communications

Check Power and GND and Communications

Leaving your ignition modules and injectors disconnected, power up the ECU by turning on the vehicle's Ignition power. Check that the ECU is powered up and that you are able to communicate with the ECU using a laptop running Elite Software Programmer.

If you have not configured your ECU by this point, then now is the time to complete this before proceeding any further.
