Hey I just had the exact same thing happen. I plugged in a used apim but not with the same number so it is not working properly and will have to be programmed. Yours should be plug and play.

Here is an update on my black screen issue.I was able to find an exact replacement on e bay, matched up the model number to the module in the car. Installed it this morning and it booted right up, as a bonus i now have nav. For $220.00 i'm back in business. It's important to match the model number on the back of the module exactly. Hugh

I have an update for the cheapskates! I bought a non matching apim because it was only $50 and I could not find an exact match. This one was from a focus but with different options. I was able to get it to work after reprogramming it to my vin spec using FORscan.
