JeepXJ 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!

1turbofocus You should not need to send me a file to load your tune

JeepXJ Just for clarification, when you start the process of installing Toms tune do I need to email him a file from my programmer first, or will I receive something from Tom first?
I'm reading the OP and the line "Install this file to the default directory of its choice." part is confusing me... not super hard to do lol.

LongIsland04SVT Hi Tom,

I just sent you this email and it bounced back to me;

New SVT Focus owner here and I've been reading all your posts on Focus Fanatics. Great stuff, and I am ready to try your tune with the DiabloSport. Can you send me a quote on the unit with your tune? I can pay right away via PayPal.

I used your email address. Can you please email me back a quote?

Warm Regards & Happy New Year!

Jim Weber

blkSVTfocus Tom,

When I bought my '04 SVT it had a predator tune installed. I was wanting to take the tune out and see how the car would run without it. I have a problem though. The handheld has taken a dump and will no longer load up. Any suggestions on what to do?

kamann When I try to send your custom tune that you emailed me to the tool, a box pops up and says:

"original backup required to send this tune to tool. If you do not yet have an original backup file, click no and then use 'get tune from file from tool' to download original backup from tool. Otherwise click yes to select an existing backup file."

So basicly until I can get the original backup from the tool to my PC using DDS Downloader it won't let me load your custom tune to the tool.
