I just opened the box of my brand new Predator U7186. Plugged it in and followed the directions. After confirming the install tune, it indicated that this tool was not for use with this vehicle. I have a 2007 Chev Duramax LBZ. I tried it several different times with the same result. What's going on?

Come to find out my 'new in the box' programmer was locked. Apparently, someone tried to use it on their vehicle and put it back in the box. I ordered off Amazon and it was shipped from Truck Customizers.
Thanks to the good folks at Diablosport - who after 30 minutes on hold, answered the phone and walked me through the reboot.

Thanks for all the replies me.

You're welcome me, glad I could help me.

Me too! It's like I was talking to myself.

It seemed like that to me too.

Trying to be conservative with it to test mileage first. I have noticed while getting on the interstate, the truck sure does feel light and nimble when using the go pedal. Smokes more too. Looking forward to hooking my 10,000lbs camper behind it on the next tank of fuel.
