The installation process if very easy and should not take long for programming and installation to be accomplished. To speed and streamline the installation, follow these recommendations.
It is very important in the programming process that the vehicle’s battery is fully charged and you do not have a drain on the battery. For this reason these precaution should be taken. Please check and remove the following if they are installed on the vehicle.
DO NOT program with a battery charger connected to the vehicle.
Close and keep all doors shut. (This eliminates interior lights and alarms from sounding.)
DO NOT operate electrical accessories (radio, windows, wipers, etc.). If it’s hot, roll the window(s) down BEFORE programming the vehicle.
Vehicles equipped with OnStar, satellite radio, remote starter, and/or aftermarket speakers/amplifiers MUST have the fuse/fuses removed in order to disable those devices PRIOR to and during the programming process. (Refer to the owners manual for location of radio, remote start, and amp fuses.)
Make sure nothing is plugged into the cigarette lighter or any other auxiliary power port on the vehicle BEFORE programming.
After inspection of the vehicle and removal of the fuse(s) that operate any accessory packages, continue with the installation of the programmer.
Once the programming cable has been connected to the vehicle’s diagnostic port and to the programmer, DO NOT remove or disturb the cable during the ENTIRE programming process. Only remove the cable from the diagnostic port when the installation is complete.
DO NOT leave the vehicle during programming. The programmer screen will display instructions for you to follow and select vehicle adjustment features.
During the installation and programming if an error should occur, a help number will be displayed on the programmer screen. Write down the error message and contact the tech support team at the provided telephone number from 8am-5pm, Central Time, Monday-Friday.
