Default Diablo Predator Problems

Who runs the predator on there truck and have you had any issues with it?

My truck is down and I am not sure if it will come back up. The ecm has been sent to the Diablo repair shop, NOT A GOOD PLACE TO GO.

Moved here

Hope you get your truck up and running soon.

You might want to look into a spare ECM if you are going to be running any type of programmer on your truck.

Thanks for the move.

I just hope that I can get my truck fixed without having to replace my ecm. Diablo payed to have it over night for repairs. I will post for sure on how this mess turns out.

DS over nighted my ecm and predator back and my truck is on the road with the stock tune. They updated the software on my predator and I have not decided if I will attempt to install another tune..........

You have to follow the instructions in order to not have the tuner lock up or screw up the load or reload of a calibration.

I'd definitely have a spare ECM regardless which tuner I went with. I've been in your position and it really sucks but in my case the Predator saved my ass.
