Plugged the Predator U7170 into my 2000 Excursion 7.3 today and the Predator display does not start up as it did when I first purchased the unit and programmed.

Check the fuse for your cigarette lighter?? It and the OBD-II are on the same circuit...

I got the predator a month ago (U7170) V. 9r05. I installed 110, 85, and tow. I want to use the 85. I hear its best for fuel economy but it keeps throwing P0605 code. How can I resolve this?

Just P0605? Only the 85 hp tune?

Last tune written was the original backup because I had the tuner updated from 7r19d to 9vr05. both versions threw the code p0605 only on the 85hp tune.

Ok, I'm new to the world of Diablosport. I have a friend who suggested I try one, so I went ahead and bought this product. I have tried all three stock tunes and the only one that causes issues is the 85hp tune. It installed without any trouble, but after running the truck for less than a mile the check engine light came on. Again, on stock or with the 40 or 110hp tune I did not experience this problem. The codes I read were P0602, P0605, P1211, and P1690, all of which the predator said are normal for tuned vehicles. Then on the next page it showed me code #P0603, which it listed as a power control module keep alive memory error. I went ahead and cleared the codes and reinstalled the 40hp tune...no problems. My CALID is 'TNAA7W3. I am running predator v. 9r04. If I need to I can email you both the original tune and the 85hp tune so you guys can check it out. I would really like to get this resolved because I am looking for a tune to help increase my mpg's. I'm a pretty conservative driver and was told that the 85hp tune would probably be my best bet.

Thats the same issue I have. Im just going to run the stock until they find a way to cure it. By the way how do you post the tunes that they ask for? I have the program on my computer already.
