If this is from a 3rd party company, they probably don't have access to the recent TCU upgrade parts, so I am rather curious, was it a 2016 Model Year Part? Because 2011-2015 were all 2G only. No point in swapping if it doesn't default to 3G.

If it doesn't work you, you can use our software fix, and at least get 2G access until the end of 2017 when Rogers is scheduled to phase out 2G.

The 'software fix' no longer works, because Nissan Corporate axed 2011-2015 TCU Unit# I.D.'s from their database, and refuse to let them talk to their NissanConnect server, even though 2G still worked in canada. Many of use enjoyed a month more 2G access (after the AT&T shutdown) before NISSAN put a fork in it. Currently, the only way to get TCU/NissanConnect access is to upgrade to a 3G TCU Unit.
