Firmware Not supported

Post by indyboo » Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:37 am

I tried to flash an ADS-ALCA for a 2013 Ford F150 with firmware DL-FM3. When searching for the vehicle it shows that firmware for the ADS-ALCA, but no link to flash the module. If I search by firmware and select DL-FM3 to flash, I get an error saying that firmware is not compatible with this module. Could my module be too old a version (it is old stock I've had for a while) requiring a newer product version to flash? Or is there an error on the Weblink side?

Sorry, but this is a Weblink Issue, so I assumed the "Weblink Support Section" would be the appropriate place to ask. Since I am no longer a dealer, I guess I am SOL with ADS and need to go with a more consumer usable brand. Thanks for your reply.

Unless you are using a really old module that is too small to hold modern firmware, that is the only way it's not supported. If you have an account to flash modules, call us and we can look into it further.
