Remove the SB annd see if it's the cause of the error ... then re-try but make sure the pin are correct ... it has to be in one particular orientation & don't bend any of them.

Not sure if this helps, but when I recently purchased mine I was asked for my transmission type so perhaps this comes into play (ie. your SB isn't for an SMG)...

Hope this helps,

Also make sure you leave the door open a couple of minutes after unlocking the car, before you remove the pedal. It said so in the manual. Of course I didn't read the manual, because guys don't do that Click the image to open in full size....and of course I got the error message...put everything back to oem, waited a couple minutes and did it the right way...no errors since then Click the image to open in full size.
