Possible Causes

Bad connection or wiring - Check the wiring and connections between the SMEC and the ignition key.  Be sure to check the fusible links by the battery.  Locate the J2 wiring splice in your vehicle by using the splice locations in the front of the wiring diagrams manual.  Make sure there is power to the module from the splice with the ignition on.  Clean and regrease any corroded connectors with dielectric grease and repair any shorts.

Blown internal fuse - Replace SMEC.
