First, PLEASE STOP SHOUTING by turning off ALL CAPS.

Next, we need more details.
What year and model vehicle are you trying to reprogram.
Computer type and version of Windows you are using.
Which USB to Serial adapter are you using, if any.
Have you ever been able to use the Tech 2 on this vehicle for scanning and other diagnostics?

Hi Mate screaming out of frustrations! Ok the car is 2010 Holden ve commodore sv6 Series 2, using windows 7 with 32 bits processor, using a RS232 to USB adapter and the tool communicating well with the laptop so i don't have any issues with that ( AS OF YET ). the issue im facing right now is the final stage of loading the update to the ecu, every time i restart the tech2 then pressing ok it load for few seconds and then the same message comes back again, and after few attempts i get a red text message saying ( programming has failed )WhatsApp Image 2021-03-04 at 11.33.41 AM.jpegWhatsApp Image 2021-03-04 at 9.54.53 AM.jpeg

Strange. I have done several modules, including the ECU, on my 2011 Caprice (made by Holden, 6.0L L77) and it never asks to turn off or on the Tech 2. It is only an interface to the car. I wonder if there is possibly interference from another module causing this. You might need to try and disconnect all the modules from the CANBUS via the main splice pack by pulling the comb and connecting only the ECU to the diagnostic port. I don't know where it is located on this vehicle.

Why are you reprogramming the ECU? Is it a replacement? Maybe it's not the correct one, is defective or it's been bricked for some reason.

Mate its confusing me and im getting sick of it! im gonna give it a last try by fully charging the car battery and then i will try again if it didnt work I will just bite the bullet and take it to hold it do the update for me and pay the $115.... im sure its going to be something silly causing all this fiasco
