EVO-ALL red light stays on during Step 2

0 votes
Installing EVO-ALL into 2016 Passat using Stand Alone installation. Using Flash-Link Updater with Firmware Ver. 4.05, and have upgraded EVO to Firmware Ver. 75.38 (recommended). On Step #2 of decryptor programming procedure, I press and hold the progamming button while connecting the 4-pin datalink harness and wait for a blue light to appear... I only get a red light. I cannot advance in the procedure beyond this point. Re-flashing the EVO Firmware to Ver. 75.36 (older) did not change the result.

I've reviewed several other similar posts, however, none of these seem to answer this problem at this early point in the process.

Thank you

If the leds on the module do not cycle when holding down the programming button then you will need to reflash the firmware back into the Evo module,  it would seem to be a corrupted flash.
