Again, from what little I've read and know, the software ver has to be acertain minimum. Remove any new controller before. This way as noted there will be no update issues. Also, from what I know, you need to connect the car to a OBD (on board diagnostic) computer with software. You can do this but, need the software, cables etc. I don't know of any other way than this or the dealer. I do know that if the software is of an older version, the new controller cna't be identified by the car and won't work. Know this because that's where I am. Have to wait till later to do this.
