Yes my car got put on the flatbed and sent off to the dealer this afternoon. I got the predator today. Went to load the tune in the car. The predator took my stock tune, then once it went to send the performance tune it wouldnt take it. So i got nervous, then tried putting the stock tune back in, that wouldnt work either, NOW THE CAR WONT START/CRANK at all. So im screwed.

Ive read about this before. The manual says to call them so they can give you some special code to fix the predator and force it to re-load the stock tune.

That sucks though, let us know what the dealer says.

Ewwwwww, the dealer is going to have a field day with this one. Did you tell them what you were trying to do? I would not say a word and just let them figure it out. You might get away with it being covered under warrantee, good luck.

I had the same thing happen and called diablosport. We weren't able to force the tune in.What they had me do was turn on the headlights and disconnect the battery with the lights on, wait 10 minutes and then reconnect the battery.Started fine after that and then reloaded the tune without a problem.http://www.ls2gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66021

aww man that stinks sorry to hear that, let us know how it turns out cause I was considering an SLP diablo in the spring as supposed to a dynotune but the more I read the more I think get the dynotune and worry about getting it back to stock if need be.

Check the predator tool. Open up the end where it plugs in and make sure the wires are connected. The solder came off one of the wires on mine and I had to fix it.
Sometimes if you try to load or save a tune with the key off it messes up also.

It seems to be 05 related the 06's don't seem to have any issues, also they do have crappy documentation as to how the handheld exactly works. Granted a better manual then the 26 page one they have now would definitely be better. Along with a way to fix dropped loads instead of calling a 1800 number.

Dude, it was your predator....trust me on this one. Entering that series of keystrokes on the prdator is a PITA. Mine did this and I was not at home, had to have it towed home until I could call Predator when they opened on Monday. Get rid of that sorry piece. Buy HPTuners and learn how to tune or get help from a tuner with it.

Brandon.

They won't find this forum in order to limit their liability.

Don't worry, be happy, keep posting from Cherry Hill NJ.
