Stalling a electronic control model

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. The first thing to do is make sure the battery is disconnected. Next, follow a repair manual for instructions on properly removing the old module. After that, you can install the new one in reverse order. You will then need to program the module to work with your vehicle. This has to be done by a dealer manufacturer scanner.
