Vehicle: 2015 FIAT 500. Have you ever had to replace a module on a vehicle, only to find out it needed to be "relearned" to the vehicle? In this Diagnostic Quick Tip, National Field Trainer Jason Gabrenas shows you how to perform a Proxi Alignment on a FIAT using a scan tool.
On a lot of newer vehicles, when you replace a module like a body control module or an instrument cluster, you have to do a procedure in order for the vehicle to recognize that the new module has been installed.
FIAT calls this a proxi alignment procedure so let's walk through how to do that on this VERUS Edge right here.
It's under proxi alignment so we'll click on that. It's going to ID the ECU and then it's going to give you two options so we'll perform the proxi alignment procedure.
It says this procedure is used to display the proxy configuration status of the entire vehicle and copy of the proxy configuration data into any required ECU.
That would be any ECUs that were replaced. It'll copy it out of one module that's on the car and then copied into a different one.
It says continue to display the current status, we'll hit continue, and we have the IPC, the radio, the TPM, and the CTM. They're all configured on this vehicle because we actually didn't replace anything for this demonstration but if it wasn't configured, it would say not configured.
Then we'll hit continue and on this car, it's not needed at this time. If we did need to do it, it would tell us on the screen that we need to do it and it would go through the procedure.
So we'll just say continue again, and then it says to complete the process, turn off the ignition. And then the countdown timer will go through.
Once that's finished, it says I need to turn on the ignition. And once the ignition is on, we'll hit continue.
It says the procedure is complete. So as you can see there, just a couple of button presses and we're ready to set up a new module on a car.
