Default Cobb AP problem

I recieved the Cobb AP today from Hotsubaru.com and I tried to install it in my car and it wasnt working. I went thru step by step and it just said "ERROR, please try operation again." I tried this many times and it never worked so I went online to find answers.

When I did my research online, I have on hand the old version and I upgraded it to latest version ( the same with my Map Management ). I had no problems uploading the new software and downloaded new maps for the AP.

Now, selected the right ECU identifier and downloaded the maps I wanted to put and I tried hooking it up to my car and still, the AP says "Error, please try operation again". This is freaking annoying, I tried and tried and never succeeded. I need help desperately.

did you read the instructions properly? you have to remember that you have to begin the flashing process almost immediately after you turn your ignition switch to "ON." (only applicable during initialization or changing your base map). if you wait too long, you'll end up getting the error message when you try pushing the button on the accessport.

also, did you do what you're supposed to do with the test/mode connectors underneath your steering wheel?

You're guessing wrong ... I have an 04' and just flashed it last week ... There are 2 green connectors on the drivers side only, and off of that same set of wires is the clear/opaque connector ... That's it, don't go searching for any others as there are none ... Also, I got the error message the first time I did the flash ... The problem that I had found was in following the directions to the "T", they were off ... Right when your at the stage of getting ready to flash, and the instructions say "Turn ignition to ON position, and you must hit the AP button to flash" ... That didn't work, I had to turn the ignition on first, then select the map to flash ... Worked first shot, at least first shot that way ... Hope it helps ...

Actually, passenger side outboard (door side) kick panel has another set of green connectors which some dealerships use to open the test circuit. I didn't know it until last week when I had a car drive in normally with the green under-driver's dash connectors already connected...

I had to call England to find out what the deal was...
