I was unable to do this when selecting "Transmission Relacement" or Module Replacement, gave me a trid error; paid someone. Tried again today with a different trans, and used "Transmission Repairs with replacement main control/valve body" and it worked. Saved me $100, figured I'd put it here as there was nothing in the web that I could find.

@andrewtac

Can you elaborate on the Forscan steps or provide screen images of how to do it? The only info we had to date was what was supplied here on Page 1, Post 1, Fact #3:

Any additional info you can provide with how you did it in Forscan would be great for future reference and I will link this thread to the main 10R80 Facts thread noted above.

1) update to latest version of forscan, connect to the car
2) click on the configuration and programming button (the diamond below the wrench), select transmission characterization update, slect play at the bottom, click on OK, click OK again (update by solenoid strategy number should be highlighted), type in the new number (located on the drivers side of the trans, something like 2127292576721), select OK; if you haven't already downloaded the file it will ask to, then it will load the file.
3) select Transmission Repairs with replacement main control/valve body, then click OK; should be it.

Great info - thank you!

So one more question, do you know if by doing that via Forscan, that the version being downloaded is pulling the most recent trans software that would be the same done by dealer via IDS?

It is not the trans software per say but the valve body strategy for the valve body in the car. Supposedly they are all slightly different and this pulls the calibration file for the valve body.
