    Tried, wouldnt let me flash. says tune not registered to this autocal device.

    any idea if D7010 and D7011 could have anything to do with it? Ive tried them almost every which way, but no real changes to the TUTD behavior.

    are you using an autocal or v2/v3 unit?

    T43wh1_0026.ctz

    i dont have any security enabled on the file, but check this version.

    Where did your original trans come from & did you perform a full flash it at any time?

    Basically there is a factory parameter called Electronic Range selection. It's enabled in your tune.

    Basically that being turned on is preventing TUTD from working.

    autocal v3.

    Still having the same problem. "Script exited with code $0536: Tune file is not registered to this AutoCal device." I see this is because i got the autocal etc from the guy that put my swap together, so its likely locked to his serial number or something. I will try and figure that part out.

    The original trans was a crate trans from GM, and it was bench flashed to match the E38 ECM.

    Is there a way for me to change the Electronic Range Selection on my end? Or is that something that requires extra software I do not have?

    No dice. Still getting that $0536 error, has to be some sort of licensing thing on my autocal.

    Sorry to keep responding to my own thread, but this is driving me absolutely nuts.

    When you refer to electronic range selecting, are you speaking of the D9601? I have had that as enabled and disabled and it doesnt seem to make any discernible difference in tapshift behavior. D9602 is the one that perplexes me. If it have that set as enabled, when i shift past D into M mode, it just sits in D5, and the tapshift buttons do nothing. If I have D9602 set as disabled, and i shift into M, gear 1 shows up on the display and i can tapshift, however it just acts as the max-gear selector. Does not allow me to hold a gear regardless of throttle position.

    u might need to send the tune file to whomever provided the autocal and get them to set the security link.

    also how is your shifter setup for positions?
    PRNDM ?

    If M is D5, then you may need to change D9605 to 5 also.

    The Electronic Range is just another parameter switch, but it's not mapped in efilive. I have a cax file with additional settings

    I didnt think the autocal allowed for end users to make changes to tunes, but if you can do a compare against a holden/cts-v with the same OS & copy the transmission segment

    Ive tried it every which way. It must be this electronic range thing. I sent the tune file you uploaded to the guy that sent me the autocal, so he can hopefully "save for remote flash" and send it back to me.

    My shifter is PRNDM, and I did try D9605 as 5, no dice still. Do you have a link to any information about this "cax" stuff. I can probably figure it out if its not proprietary.

    once i validate a bunch of those settings, i'll be providing them to the efi guys to implement as standard settings in the software.

    writing the cax file is rather simple'ish but understanding/finding the actual parameter switch points etc takes a little time.

    Im using v7.5 to test/write the cax files, then i use the built in tools to convert for v8 edit, but if you copy the below into a text file and save as .cax & place it into the 7.5 calibration directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\EFILive\V7.5\Calibrations) you should see the new paramater.

    Another parameter worth testing is this. I use it to turn off the requirement for an additional tapshift movement on the 4 detect shifters.
