quick ques. on upoading tune to car

ok..this may seem dumb but, when uploading the tune onto the car, it says to turn the key to the off position when its ready to upload. is this the completely off position or, is it the "click" before the off position where u can have the radio on? sorry for my newbness, im new to tuning. lol.

technically either one would work since its not in "run", but just turn it all the way off to be sure. I do.

Anytime I uploaded a tune , I would hook a battery charger up to the battery just so it keeps a full charge at all times .

But like Svtf1417 said , all the way to the off position.

^^ yes. definitely hook up a battery charger. And you may run into, like most of us do, the issue of having to pull fuses to get it to load the tune.

I didn't have to pull any fuses when I got my tune loaded . Just took it a while and thats the reason for the battery charger . Just making sure nothing dies and you end up with a wiped ECU .
