    The time is 35 seconds total. There is no way it's flashed. Any help would be great. It will flash my TCM no problem. All software and firmware up to date. I can't even read the ecm's tune.

    If you are doing a cal flash, yes it will happen that quick. Takes me about a minute to cal flash a DSP5 into a BOSCH controller.

    I will ask the same as I did on the Diesel Place forum. Are you the original owner of the vehicle? If not maybe it is tuned. Have you gone to a dealer to see if they can flash a stock tune in it? If they can't then I would say either some bad or not fully connected wiring or a bad ECM.

    Run the program as admin, if you dont it will do this. I have all my efi live programs set to run as admin all the time. To run it as administrator just right click the program you want to open then select run as administrator.

    Cig lighter is good. I'm the original tuner because I loaded this tuning into the truck. I can tune the tcm but it will not read the tune or change the tire size of this tune. I've tryed full flashing cal flashing. It doesn't even bring the progress bar up.

    I'll definately try the administrator thing when I get a chance to mess with it. It's still running it just won't change.

    You need to update at least your V2's firmware, latest is 2.07.28. Start with that, then try it again (set the programs to run as Administrator too). Also, if that doesnt work then try using V8 to flash the ECM as well.
