AutoCal V2 Flash & License a Controller

Authors list

For AutoCal V2, controllers are licensed when the flash option is selected but before the flash commences where BBF (Black Box Flashing) is used.  Follow these steps to license and flash the selected controller.

Simple Menu:

  1. Install AutoCal BBX configuration & tune files provided by your Tuner if not already setup.
  2. Connect your AutoCal device to your vehicle.
  3. Turn the vehicle ignition to the On position (not the Accessory position.  Vehicle must not be cranked/running when flashing).
  4. Navigate using the arrow keys to the Prog 1-5 options for calibration flash, or the Full 1-5 options for full flash. (NOTE: Unused Prog/Full options are hidden on the AutoCal Simple Menu).
  5. Select the correct tune file from those listed and select OK
  6. If the controller has not been licensed by the selected AutoCal device, you will be presented with the License controller message.
  7.  Select OK 
  8. Select OK to license the controller and initiate the flash operation.
  9. When the flash process is complete the  Ignition Off NOW! notification will be shown.   When prompted perform the following actions:
    1. Turn the vehicle ignition off.
    2. Click on the OK button to begin the countdown timer.
    3. DO NOT turn the vehicle ignition on until the countdown timer expires.  This time is critical to allow the ECM to perform internal functions after a read operation.
