Broke me car!!!
I followed the instructions to get the tune onto the predator, which didnt mention that the dss software requires you to take a backup??
I pointed the backup file to My Documents where it now sits. I reboot the predator and go through the tune install... it fails at about 70%, tells me to remove the predator plug. Car doesnt start and I have - - - in the odo. I figure no big deal I'll restore. Plug in the predator and it says failed to install last tune would I like to restore to original, yes, and that now fails at about 70% as well. Now the predator will only ask me to restore original witch fails every time I try at 70%.

Current plan;
I'm powering the predator with the car, I'm getting a buddy to come pick me up and take me to the local RadShack for a power adapter..seems like I could break that boot/fail to load problem if I take the car out of the equation... hopefully!
