Failed ecu flash. Error code step 5

Post by Mikemehow »

Tried to reflash my ecu and it failed. Plugged the flashpro back into a laptop and code error code step 5.

-Locked the flashpro to my vin.
-Calibrated a flash onto the flashpro
-Plugged into obd port but the program like only stays solid red and then turns off.
- car will not start now and cant reflash back to stock
-Flashmangaer is updated to the newest update

The car did have a engine swap from another k20z3 and is it possible that the vin the ecu is thinking of is not the same as the vin on the windshield? I am using a desktop pc so I was not able to have the flashpro hooked up to the flashmanger and the car all at once.
