my xcal2 failed but it said corrupted file. and it just after loading a drag tune with a two step on it +10%fuel at WOT, etc been like this now for a year i just had to learn to drvie it differently. you can always tow it to ford for a stock reflash if it doesnt work.

yeah i know what you mean about paying again. thats why my car is still stuck in the same tune. besides using a two step in everyday driving if you know how to use it is fun! lol my warranty on mine was out and they wouldnt help me out. i think i talked to Steve in thier Helpline.

If your getting dashes like this ----- where your odometer reading's were at , you have erased your Computer's memory . I did mine and had to have the dealership where I bought it from reflash my ECU.

If your getting an odometer reading instead of the ---- then your gonna need to contact SCT and get a recovery file that has been stored on your Xcal 3 and uploaded on your computer .

Ive been here... Does it keep failing at different %'s? Keep trying and trying, get the stock tune back on the car ("return to stock"). It will work eventually, maybe 10 or 15 tries. Then update the firmware on the x3.

i'm getting the dashes. however, SCT said they could write me a new code and flash me the stock tune back. if not, i may have to go after SCT cause i didn't do anything and if it erased my ECU, and it can't be fixed, i'm going to be royally pissed at them.

and no, it doesn't go w/ different %'s, stuck on 4 % all the time
