Alright I'm back again with the same tool, I had similar problems back when I tried to marry this tool to the unlocked PCM you guys (Holley performance/Powerteq) unlocked for me...You all had to do a reset on the tool for me then...Here is the problem I'm having now...It seems it wont recognize my PCM anymore although it still has the original file stored still for this car 2016 Challenger Scat Pack 6.4L manual 6 speed...

When I plug it in, it keeps asking me to select the vehicle over and over again...I put it in demo mode just so I can look at the information,it shows my VIN number etc etc but when I look at the last tune written, it says this tool is not married to a vehicle then proceeds to get me to put in my vehicle information, when I do this it goes into a loop over and over again...Right now I have a custom tune loaded in my PCM...I was just going to look and see if there was an update for my tool but keeps saying I need to put the original file back on my car before I can proceed...I try that and like I said, it doesn't recognize my car anymore...

I do have the original Tune file on my PC saved...And I haven't went to the dodge dealer or anything so I know it's not been flashed or anything.

Any help is appreciated...

P.S. @Mikel if you see this, do you think it's possible for me to just send you my PCM and T1000 and let you guys take care of it for me? I still have my factory PCM and can get by with it while you all do your thing...I might even entertain the trade in for the T2 while you have it there, this T-1000 has me at my wits end lol!

That's the problem, I tried to update it...When I plug it in to the computer and try to check for updates, it tells me to reinstall he original tune back into my car before updating which is normal...So when I plug it into my car, it automatically wants me to put my vehicle information in like it's a new car but it's not...So I put the info in and it resets, starts back up and goes right back to the same screen again asking for information on my car...

well, sounds like tool has a memory issue.
give us a call and we can try resetting it then forcing it to load a stock file to the pcm but its likely time to start thinking about a new tuner.

Hey Mike,

I will do this eventually, been really busy at work lately...Will try to hook up with you on the phone this upcoming Friday...Once I get my stock tune back to my PCM, I will definitely upgrade to the T2...Car runs fine right now, just stuck on my custom tune...

Thanks,
Charlie
