Well, I must say, that's a much more thoughtful answer than the first.
"". The Constant clicking could be because you tried to use the remote transimtter thus activating the module before you found the battery was drained.
This does not mean the module caused the battery drain. If you then removed the module as YOU said in your post and recharged the battery. THEN repaced the module THEN the module and transmitter would need re-synching. Especially as YOU said you removed the transmitter battery as well.
Why would you think the module was faulty and the battery drain was from the module. Unless.
When you charged the battery the module then started going crazy. Which YOU never said in your first post.
***I never said that because it didn't happen. You're making a huge leap there.***
of course if you jump started the vehicle you could have blown the module? Details are what we work off. If you do not supply ALL the details. You get a reply for the details you have supplied.
***I said I jump started the truck AFTER disconnecting the module***
IF you would have stated you had tried to re-synch and this had not worked ! Then you would not have got this reply.
WE need ALL the details of what you have tried and WHY you think the module is the fault.
*** I tried to give as many details in the beginning as I could, in the order in which everything happened. I even ammended my question with more details before asked to try and give as complete an question as possible. In order to get more details, a short question and answer period is sometimes needed. This would have involved you asking a question or two if needed, instead of giving some canned response that basically would be the cure for re-synching the transmitter AFTER the problem was found. Again, HUGE leap on your part***
I NEVER cut and paste from other post's or forum's and resent the implication.
I will forward your reply to our administrators for a refund of your $5
remember next time you post on this or another forum. ALL THE DETAILS upfront and you may get the reply you desire or need. Good luck with your repair !
*** IT would be nearly impossible for a non-mechanic to give you ALL the details upfront that you apparently need to warrant a thoughtful answer. If I knew ALL the details, I could have figured it out myself***
Again, keep the $5. And I do apologize for the way my response to you sounded. There were just so many questions left unanswered and what you gave seemed to be the Last thing that would be needed AFTER a period of actually troubleshooting the problem.
