That means there are no custom tune files on the device. Did you buy it from one of our dealers and pay for a tune file?

Now that you have the flasher you can use that to get your processor code (read strategy from the vehicle info screen) then give that to fs and they will send you your tune file. Once you have that, the only thing you need is the X3LWupdater program from our website, install that to your PC then use it to load the tune file.
