StephenElsbree1986 Well I have a xcal 2 and just ran into the fail tune the other day it failed 4 times scared me but 5th time it work, I was forced to update my frimware since I didnt have Live Load Ford on my computer to set a tune, and to get Live Load Ford to work I needed both updates but my SCCT works better now and it loaded the tune fine..... I know we're not suppost to update them, but I had no choice with the xcal 2 if I wanted to load a new tune to the device

Did you try to return to previous firmware version? What's the previous version and current version?
I'm not aware of any way to return to previous versions, SCT only supports the automatic updates. Maybe they save them somewhere and could manually send it to me, not sure. The problem is that I don't know what FW I was using when the tuner was operational.

I just downloaded the latest FW (1.2.145-3015, released 10/08), which worked, then attempted to download the latest Tune Revision (2.041 - Full Version, released 10/08), which failed. I have not yet tried to re-tune the car, I don't feel comfortable doing so until the Tune Revision "takes". This is using the latest Device Update Software (2.9.8.35, released 10/11), btw.

Moral of the story: if your SCT tuner works, DON'T MESS WITH IT.

Honestly I'm kind of scared to try putting Tom's tune back on as well now.. Obviously it's SCT's fault and not yours Tom. It just sucks that I had the tuning process working perfectly before, then made the mistake of updating to the latest versions of SCT's firmware. My work hours conflict with their call-in hours so I don't really have time to call them either, sounds like they might not be much help anyway.

Dago I had the same problem about 8 months ago, I switched to a livewire and it works like a charm, there's definitely a problem with their firmware and they don't want to fix it.

Dads03SVT When i loaded mine i was told to make sure i had a battery charger hooked up .... was told about voltage sensing issues. So all 3 times i played around with mine from FSWerks i did that with no problems.

1turbofocus Unfortunately you will have to set the keys each time

I am sorry people are having issues , I have been asking for this stuff to be fixed for almost 10 years now , the more that call and voice there opinions the quicker it might get fixed

Focus112 I had to fight just to get them to cover the shipping for me to send the ecu and tuner to them. They really couldnt care less that there issue with the SVT, litterally 4 different techs told me well the SVT can be "finicky" and to keep trying.

Now that i have two ECUs both paired to the same key, would i be able to switch back and fourth between the two? Or will i have to reprogram the keys each time?

1turbofocus You will have the other as a stand by , being in the position your in for the IDS it would be interesting to see if it loads to this ECU , then try the other when it gets back from SCT and see what it does with the old one

I hope you gave them a good reeming

Tom
