Re: SCT Comes Through with X4 Fix!!

Did they email you a new firmware update, or update there entire firmware file everyone can access?.. I just got mine from the UPS truck. Tried it, only recognizes a Shelby GT500. Tried updating and after waiting about 45 minutes for it to completely update, it only still recognizes a Shelby GT500...

I called the tech support number because I didn't want to wait in line to be called. It took maybe 5 minutes total.

And what did they do to resolve the issue? I couldn't call today because it was after business hours once I recieved it.

Re: SCT Comes Through with X4 Fix!!

They load a new firmware file. SCT tech told me they had around 200 X4's out there that this affected. I think is was the update to 1.037 that did it, mine worked before I updated to that file, then no go. Same for the 1.039 update.Mine would recognize other vehicles too, but not mine. Would have liked to tried tune another 6.0 but didn't know any other fools that would try that.

Second X4 I bought a month later after my first one went back for the second time, was originaly 1.033 firmware and I didn't try the canned tunes before updating to 1.039 last Friday. No work either.
Vivian told me, in talking with them about it last Monday, it had to do with the firmware program didn't save the VIN on 03-04, so when you updated it, it didn't recognize the vehicle, hence, some of them were working fine until you updated them before loading a custom tune, like mine.
Now, after buying two X4's and getting a PCM reflash for $104, is good to go.

I need to advertise an X4 For Sale in classifieds!!
