Hi everyone,

I have a 2007 (2007-14 model) ESV Cadillac Escalade and recently got a U7194 to tune the car but Im not being able at all. I have already done the following things:

0.- Tool is using u194-9r09 software. I got u7194-9r10.crom file but I haven`t managed to update it.
1.- Connected the tool to the car and extracted the original backup to my PC (Got a .grg extension file). I got a message saying "Predator was able to read a backup. You will need to export it using DS" (what I did).
2.- When I go to tune I only see "Modify Stock Tune" and "Original Backup". I dont see a "diablosport tune" or something similar here.

I have two questions:

A) Do I need to update de software? If so, how do I do it?

B) How can a export a tune from the tool to the car?

I have read the manual but seems to be too old and now it has different ways of doing things.


Thanks a lot for your help.

Regards.

R.

also keep in mind that you will not be able to tune the transmission at all with that old discontinued predator.. so can not adjust shift points, shift firmness, how quick it shifts, etc. nothing.. can only tune the engine...

you'd need an inTune i2 i2030 or a Trinity to be able to also tune the TCM/transmission...

Hi, when I try to update the tool I get an error message (attached pic). And if I go under options -> Show last tune written -> Original backup at the end I see a VIN number that is not mine (pic attached). Maybe the tool is locked??? Thanks a lot guys.

you need to plug it into the vehicle and restore the original backup then it can be updated.

Hi guys!

It seems I have a locked tool. I'd like to unlock it but I dont know how to contact with diablosport to do so. Maybe in this forum?

Thanks.

you're much better off just trading it in to diablosport and they'll give you a $100 discount on buying a new inTune i2 i2030 or Trinity from them.. that way, you'll also be able to tune your transmission settings.

You can contact Diablosport Tech Support at support@diablosport.com or 1-561-908-0040 for tech support... Mon-Fri, 9am-5:00pm (EST).
