Do I need to reflash the SME after a crash?
When the BST blows, it also disconnects the HV contactors via crash signal to the SME, and drops 30C which powers the contactor solenoids(springing them open). So the SME knows the car was in a crash. However, unless it detects a fault with the HV contactors it should be allowing you to reactivate it.

If you look back in your original ISTA operations report before running the HV battery startup procedure, was your transport mode fault stored?

I have never run the test plan on a functioning car to see if it puts the SME in transport mode before, not sure if it is capable or not.
