More issues with USAA

I've been reading about all of the issues folks are having linking with USAA, as I've had intermittent issues for over a year. Recently, I had to change my USAA Visa number and try to reset my account in Quicken to follow that new account number. I've tried resetting that account's online access half a dozen times but still can't get Quicken/USAA to download the transactions. I've received a couple different error messages (ex, CC-502), but mostly I'm seeing that when resetting the online link it's setting up as Express Web Connect while USAA says it uses Direct Connect. I suspect that's why the transactions don't download. How can I change the connection method? Quicken defaults to Express Web every time I try to set up the online service.

    1. Navigate to Tools > Add Account... 
    2. Type "USAA" in the search field
    3. Select USAA Federal Savings Bank, then click Advanced Options 
    4. In the following screen, select Direct Connect and click Next
    You should now be prompted to enter your Access ID and PIN. Follow the prompts to complete the setup.

    I hope this helps!
