Step 1: Buy a PG3 or full kit.
When you place your order, we require the VIN Number of your truck.
Step 2: Tune your truck before removing the hard parts.
Make sure that you tune your truck before you even think about removing your EGR or Exhaust Systems. This way, if you have any trouble tuning your truck, you’re not dead in the water with a broken truck until Monday morning when we open back up.
Step 3: Hook up a battery charger.
Before you start, grab your battery charger and hook it up to the truck, doesn’t matter if you have brand new high-end batteries and you just finished trickle charging them to 100%. If you don’t have a battery charger, get one and set it to a 10A charge. The new ECM’s are very sensitive to voltage and the flash can fail if the voltage drops too low.
Step 4: Plug the PG3 into your OBDII.
You’re ready to plug in the PG3 into your OBDII port under the dash. If you’re flashing a 18+ vehicle you will need to connect the Security Bypass Cable at the same time as the tuner. It only needs to be plugged in while you flash your tunes, however, it doesn’t hurt to leave it plugged in. If it says anything about needing to update the template it can be downloaded here (customer template) and installed through the software, so go to step 8 then come back.
Step 5: Reading the truck.
Click tune on the screen and follow the steps to read the truck (answer yes to all questions) and send us the stock file. You can still drive your truck or jeep during this time period. It will have a F002 Error, ignore that. Now unplug from truck and connect to your laptop or desktop computer.
Step 7-8: Download the software.
Now that you have the tune, you can download the software provide at the following link (Alientech Software) on to your home computer. Once you open the software and connect the pg3 device you can open the software, let it do its thing and update. One it opens you can click download data and save it to your computer (example.usr) and email it to us at this link (Sales@ecodieselusa.com)
