Complete Guide to AutoCal Use

Posted by Innovative Diesel on

Remote linking an un-linked AutoCal device:

(NOTE: If you received your AutoCal from Innovative Diesel with pre-loaded tunes already installed this step is already

done)

 Install the latest version of EFI live V8 software.

 Plug in the AutoCal and open EFI Live “Scan and Tune”

 In the Task bar on the bottom right there will be a little icon shaped like the AutoCal once the drivers finish

installing. Click this icon and it will bring up the EFI Live control panel.

 Click on “F6: Firmware”. If the firmware requires updating please click the button that says update firmware at

this time.

 Click on “F7: Licensing”. The picture of the AutoCal should be lit up. If it is greyed out, click on the status button

and it should light up. It will also say underneath “The AutoCal device has not been linked yet”.

 Hold down the control button and double click the picture of the AutoCal. This will bring up a text box. In this

text box you will paste the code that your tuner sent to you, and click on program. Your AutoCal will now be

linked.

Installing custom tunes on AutoCal:

 Your custom tunes will be in a file that has the extension .bbx at the end of it. You will install this file in “Scan

and Tune”.

 Open “Scan and Tune”. On the left side there is a tab labelled “F5: BBX”. Click this tab.

 In the BBX window there will be a tab that says “F6: Quick Setup”. Click this tab.

 Click on the tab that says “Open Quick Setup”. Then select the BBX tune file that you received from your tuner.

 Then click on “Program Quick Setup”. You are now finished.

Installing tune files on vehicle:

 With the key in the run position plug the AutoCal into the OBD port under the dash.

There will be different directions depending on vehicle type.

1. Cummins:

 Scroll down and select “Tuning tool”.

 Scroll down and select “Full Flash”

 Then scroll down and select the appropriate tune file that you desire to run.

 You will then be prompted on if you want to “License ECU”. Click OK. Then follow the on screen

prompts to turn the key off and on.

 You are now finished with your install.

2. Duramax:

 On the Duramax LML you will have a file named “Full Stock”. This is the first file that you will flash in.

This file will also be the one you flash in to return the vehicle to stock.

 Scroll down and select “Tuning tool”.

 Scroll down and select “Full Flash”

 Then scroll down and select the file named “Full Stock”.

 You will then be prompted on if you want to “License ECU”. Click OK. Then follow the on screen

prompts to turn the key off and on.

 After that file is flashed, it is now time for you to select the desired power tune that you want to run.

These files will be calibration only flashes. These files will be found under the “Cal Flash” folder of the

AutoCal.

 Scroll down to “Cal Flash” in the tuning tool. Then select the appropriate power file that you wish to

run.

 Then follow the on screen prompts to turn the key off and on.

 You are now finished with the install of the tune file.
