Problems Editing a Tune File

Authors list

There are a number of reasons why the Tuning Tool may not be configured to display or edit the controller's calibrations.

Check Software for Updates

Ensure you have the latest software and firmware installed to see if EFILive has recently added your operating system, and attempt to [Open] the tune file again.

Please see Update V8 Software for further guidance.  EFILive will be unable to offer support until software and firmware matches or is higher than the current public release software.

Unsupported Operating System

There are a number of reasons why the Tuning Tool may not be configured to display or edit the controller's calibrations.

  • There are a range of controllers where EFILive is currently developing mapping, and other controllers that are supported only for read and flash where mapping will not be provided.  A list of these controllers can be found in the Controller Mapping not Available help file.
  • EFILive has not yet seen the operating system to provide mapping support - please email your tune file to support@efilive.com
  • Non-EFILive custom operating systems are not supported in EFILive software.

*.coz File Format

*.coz files do not contain any operating system data and cannot be identified, opened, viewed or edited using the EFILive software.  To make changes to any *.coz file you must edit the original *.ctz from which the *.coz file was created.

$0525 "Tune file is not compatible with firmware" or "Tune file is not compatible with current software version".

From time to time EFILive updates tune file formats.  When this occurs tune files created in new versions of software are not compatible with old versions of software.  Existing *.ctz and *.coz files saved using previous versions of the EFILive software can be opened in later versions of the EFILive software.

Auto-Lock

Where Auto-Lock via the EFILocker COS Patch has been applied to a tune file in the V7.5 Tune Tool, this security parameter cannot be removed.  Customers will need to edit a different tune file.

Tune File Security

Where tune file security has been previously applied to a tune file, that security needs to be removed before the file can be edited.    If you do not have that FlashScan device, you cannot remove security or edit the tune file.  

  1. Connect the FlashScan that applied the tune file security to your PC. 
  2. Open EFILive V8 Scan and Tune software.
  3. Open the tune file.
  4. Where the Security Restrictions warning displays, accept the warning and continue to open the tune file.
  5. Navigate to the [F4: Properties] tab.  If you did not identify the FlashScan that applied the tune file restriction for Step 1, the Master FlashScan License will now provide that information.
  6. Select [Clear All Security Restrictions].  NOTE: Clear all security settings will not remove Auto-Lock restriction where Auto-Lock was set via the EFILocker COS Patch, or reset the AutoCal Remote License.
  7. The tune file can now be edited in the [F5: Edit] Tune Tool menu (if already migrated from V7.5 Tune Tool software).
  8. The tune file can be saved without security to open and modify in V7.5 Tune Tool.    Where Auto-Lock via the EFILocker COS Patch has been applied to a tune file in the V7.5 Tune Tool, this security parameter cannot be removed.  Customers will need to edit a different tune file.
