That means the module is toast and needs to be replaced as I recall.

The computer has detected an error in it’s internal memory. First, I would try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes and see if the problem clears. I doubt that it will work but it is worth a try.
Talk to a dealer and see if the memory can be re-loaded (reflashed) to fix the problem.

The next step would be new computer.
