Brand New Vehicle Module not generating configuration Hotspot

Just got my Vehicle Module.

I plugged it in, but it doesn't appear to be generating the hotspot for initial configuration.

I work in IT so I plugged it into my computer and I do see it the module showing up as /dev/ttyUSB0.  I used this connection to attempt to Factory Reset the Module using esptool without success.  I also used the MicroSD card with a blank file factoryreset.txt which also didn't work.


I've plugged this into my cars OBD port as well as my PC and a 2a USB charger.  I'm used to working with ESP32's in Home Assistant, so I also flashed the latest firmware directly onto the module.  None of this has worked.


Has anybody come across this?  I don't have the serial cable needed for debugging, and I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas before I get one.

Debugging / console is via

Debugging / console is via the USB cable. No special serial cable needed. Just plug it in via USB and you should see the device show up as a comm port. Try 115,200 baud.
