: Ugh what am I doing wrong? inTune 1000 DCX...

Hi guys
So I am completely new to this so forgive me if I don't know everything..

I just received my Diablosport inTune I-1000 DCX for my 2011 3.6L.

I followed the Quick Start guide... which turns out isn't so quick after all. Plugged it into my laptop, it "auto updated".. I think? All that happened was some loading screen on the device... so I unplugged it and headed to my car... tried to write a tune..got the message "PCM calibration for (my VIN #) may be out of date and need an update" or something like that. So i unplugged and headed back to my laptop and this is where I am left in the dust...

First of all, I had NO idea I had to download any programs or drivers or whatever. This isn't listed anywhere. I thought I could just plug-in and throw on a canned tune or whatnot. So I went on the Diablosport website under DOWNLOADS and was confused from there. So I just started clicking.. I was able to download the DS software- but it is only for Trinity? Opened that up and it won't even connect to my device.... Nothing.

So I see the (Trinity?) drivers download. Tried this 10x.. fails every time on the last step..(stage 2 or whatever).

ALSO I was under the impression that the tunes were already pre-loaded, but now I am reading that I have to put the tunes on myself? I don't even know how to do this or where to find my car's tune.

I am SO confused :'( This is unfamiliar territory to me to say the least....

Lol this was me a few days ago, I have the trinity. Hope this helps, it did for me

1. Power up the tool and select Options Change Vehicle Type, and put it into Demo mode again. Let it reset itself and go back to the main menu.
2. In demo mode, go under the Performance menu, and select ‘Original Backup’ as the tune to install. The tool will go through the process of “installing” a stock tune, and reset itself as if it’s connected to a car. If it was not married in Demo, it will tell you there is nothing to restore—skip to step 4.
3. Once it notifies you that the original backup has been installed, reboot the tool to put it on the main menu
4. Open DS Downloader program.
5. Once it connects to the unmarried Trinity, the DS Downloader will now be able to update the tool fully to the latest revision, and should do so automatically.
6. Once the update process is completed, the Trinity will display the main menu again. Select Options Change Vehicle Type (the first time you do this, enter a 2010 V6 car instead of a 2012) again, and enter your vehicle’s information. That will activate the appropriate firmware file for your vehicle, and you can then bring it to the vehicle.

NOTE: Since you have a Chrysler gas vehicle, if you get a message that reads "This vehicle needs an update, Download here: DCX (http://www.diablosport.com/dcx) ", DON'T PANIC, this is because the tool wants to update the vehicle’s stock calibration file, not because the tool itself needs an update. If you get that message:

1. Bring the tool back to the PC, and plug it in
2. Open the DS Downloader program and let it connect
3. The DS Downloader program will give you a prompt that it wants to download a Calibration Update to the tool
4. Follow the prompt, and let it complete the process
5. Bring the tool back to the vehicle, and select the Performance menu to load the Calibration Update to the vehicle’s PCM
6. When the Calibration Update is finished, you can then select a tune and write it to the vehicle

I dont have windows 8 but i do know on the diablo site i have seen a specific "click here if ur using windows 8". Otherwise I did exactly what sandshar did about 2 days before him!! Dont worry shoot....we will all get thru this together. I had difficulties the first day but ince u go thru it and you say oiooh thats how it goes its pretty easy. My only real advice however is if you want this on by the weekend call diablo tomorrow in regular business hours because there is no tech support on weekends. Im a complete noob to this whole tuning too....dont know bout sandshar.

But I can't even get it to connect to DS because the drivers will not install. And the one solution they posted did not work either.

I'm completely SOL.

I just tried to load the tune in my car without PCM cal update...clicked the X instead of agreeing to the check update message... and the message I got was "Vehicle is not supported- Contact diablosport"

Now I'm really giving up :/

Buttt how come after plugging it into my PC, the screen pops up saying it is updating- then heading back to my car, it still tells me it needs a PCM cal for my vin # and to check for updates?

When I ignore the message (red X and green check mark), it tells me my vehicle is not supported and to contact you guys..

Sent from AutoGuide.com App (http://www.autoguide.com/mobile)there are tool updates, and vehicle updates, totally different, but same process to get them.
Plug it into a PC, let the intune.exe run, and it will download the requested cal update :)

Sent from AutoGuide.com App (http://www.autoguide.com/mobile)the instructions for DSDL are for trinity and predator specifically, there is no mention of inTune anywhere there ;)

As mentioned, DSDL is not for inTune, inTune uses the inTune.exe which lives on the intune and auto runs on your PC. The driver is not needed for anything but live streaming, if it wont install, right click the intune.exe in the diablosport drive and select run as administrator.

Thanks

I read somewhere intune used the same files as Trinity or something. I think this is where I confused myself.

SO I just plugged it into my PC and ran the program. The popup window shows that it was searching for cal updates/updating. This is all I need to do?

I'll attempt to plug it in the vehicle now..

There's no way it has been this easy all along :| I have my doubts lol.

The PCM Cal update is now complete.

Currently writing the "Diablo tune". The only other option was 91 Octane... but I've got a full tank of 89 in now.

If this effs up I am going to restore it since i've gotten past the Cal update stage....

If you have 89 in your tank do not run the "Diablo tune", that is their 93 tune IIRC. You could run a different tune or maybe get some octane booster for the time being.

Sandshar
05-17-2013, 11:32 AM
Remember I got the trinity but hopefully it's the same for u.

Plug device to your car then click modify tune then edit parameters(I believe or it was just modify tune) scroll down to throttle boost then Max it out (20%). Then the tune will save and you're done. HUGE difference

Diablo needs to improve the install instructions.
I got my trinity 10 days ago, followed all their instructions. But it wouldn't load the tune. Long story short. It was on a Saturday. Spent 4 hours to figure it out.
Gave up. Found out they're closed on the weekend which really really pissed me off because I'd assume most people work on their cars on the weekends.
Called them on Monday, was on hold for 45 minutes. Loaded the tune and all I can say is Wow. Was very impressed with the tune.
But being closed on the weekends is just non sense.
I assume over 90% of people who buy their products, have to call them for assistance. That to me is not except able.
OP, I feel your frustration. Good luck.

:lol: all mods come with some sort of anxiety....but the payoff usually rocks!!! at 23,000 miles dropping my valve body to add the bluetops, and later at 45,000 adding the tuner, changing my springs....there was almost always a point where I said 'WTF am I doing?!?!?! but in each case I was more than happy I did. I do everything on my car except things like wheel alignment that I cant do. But as stated previously, the biggest single disappointment about the tuner is nooooo weekend support. That takes a real leap of faith to do it anytime after 5pm on a Friday!!:guiness:

I ordered an Intune today. Should receive it at the end of the week. I'll update it and wait till I burn off all the 89 Octane prior to setting it. I'm military and we only get 91 for highest. How do you get the 93? Do I need to add something? or I have to look for the shop?

shootdownthestars
05-21-2013, 07:10 PM
Grey,
Just to get you started off on the right foot and to clarify in case you get confused- You do not need to download ANYTHING off diablosport.com for the inTune DCX. Only the Trinity needs the DS software downloaded- your inTune has everything built in.

When you plug in the inTune to your PC using the usb cable, Run the application (if it doesn't autostart) and a screen (shaped like your inTune) will pop up and let you know it is doing the updates. You MUST update it. This step is laid out in the quick start guide.

After the update, take it to your car, plug it in and follow the quick start guide here. You will first need to install the PCM Calibration update to your car, THEN you can pick a tune. IMPORTANT: When the key cycle part comes (inTune will ask you to turn the car off for 10 seconds or whatever, then turn it on etc) SKIP THIS PART!!!!! Leave the car on RUN and press the green check mark on the screen. That's it. This is SO important! For some reason it does not work with our push starts and you will be left with a failed update or tune and a dead car that will only manually start with the turn key option (but will throw a check engine light..).

Follow this and you'll be smoooooooth sailing!

As for the gas, I pretty much only pump Shell gas into my car. They carry 87,89 and 91 octane though. Since I want to use the 93 tune, I am probably going to end up putting in 94 octane from Petro Canada gas station. 93 is a difficult find.... hopefully 94 is OK.

Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App (http://www.autoguide.com/mobile)sore, if you want to thats doable for sure.

Its not a 'backup' though, as the tune is always stored in the tool itself, and if the tool is lost, you can;t load the saved backup to a new tool, although we do have ways around that should it come up ;)

HEMIZSP
05-22-2013, 12:33 PM
So it's best to leave it on tool and lock up the tool in a safe. And let's say if you lose the tool. Your stock tune is gone?

I see some folks have purchased this already for the 2012 3.6L challengers , Just curious how it's working. If you do
the 91 octane tune do you need to run 91 all the time after that. Curious 91 is expensive out here. Are there any HP gains running 87. Just curious if the shift points are more responsive a well on 3.6. I"m ready to buy but just curious how others are feeling about this tuner.

shootdownthestars
05-25-2013, 11:47 PM
If you write the 91 octane tune you must run 91 octane gas. Same with the 93 tune..run 93 octane gas.

Your car is now tuned to burn these higher octanes. Lower octane can cause knocks and is no benefit to the hp of the tune itself. If you don't want to spend the extra cash on 91/93 gas, don't tune your car!

Does the 93 tune automatically turn off MDS, or is that a parameter you need to do in modify tune?

Also, what else are people doing in modify tune besides:
throttle, tire size, shift firmness, fans etc?

Are you doing the key cycles?

I believe I got the same message the first time, when I attempted to complete the key cycles as instructed. If you are, try loading again, and don't cycle the key when instructed, just wait 10 before pressing OK, or continue, or whatever it says.

I think there's two or three key cycles while loading.

I have the intune all updated. Took awhile. I go in to tune the car and it just keeps cycling over on calibration. I get some error and then it goes to recovery mode. I'll have to call. This is what I see all the time. 68470

Plug it back into your computer, run the application and let it check for updates again.. then go back to your car and try again

I didn't tell the full story and now know what happened. I thought I updated it at first. Go to the car and attempted to tune but was told to put back at pc and update. Finally updated fine then after went back to car and it wasn't able to calibrate due to I was already halfway done from previous attempt. Due to that. The intune was stuck in the middle of the cycle and that's why I couldn't tune. Called and actually didn't have to wait too long to get help. About 25min wait. Nice rep reset my intune and explained where I went wrong. It was all me. It's a bit tricky at first but after it was easy. I have it set to CAI Tune with the 93 gas. First start up, srt was running rough like I got a bad ass engine. Can't wait to really feel it out. I'll post a good tutorial for us challenger riders. So it can help us noobs. Lol. Thanks guys.

The hardest part is to update it and your not sure what to do.

Yeah I was ripping my hair out and had a few scares at first but once you get the hang of it it's smooth sailing from there.

I gotta tune the car back to stock before I take it to get the airbag harnesses fixed (again..) tomorrow morning.

Well I just restored the car back to stock
and after driving the 15 minutes to the dealership I'm convinced the intune was worth the cash.

At first, after pulling out of my drive, I'm thinking yeah whatever kinda feels the same. Then I pull away from a red light... and just get on the pedal at some normal acceleration...and it's obvious at this point. It's not pulling hard at all and it's like I'm pressing the pedal, the engine is revving but the car is going nowhere. All too familiar! Feels like a fat girl again. Can't wait to get the tune back on....... They really make the car open up.

So far I've notice little. However it's my rides first time burning 93 oct. but the little things I noticed is the RPMs are lower on steady drive. Response seems better. I haven't really cruised it to feel it yet.

I didn't think it made that much of a difference until I had it back to stock. Feels way more sluggish.

The hemi guys must really love these tuners. I can only imagine how much it cranks up the V8 juice..

Also I'm just running the 91 tune with 20% throttle boost and Shell Vpower 91 octane.

Haven't wrote the 93 tune yet but I'm hoping it adds a little more oomph..

I'm really paying attention to this thread, I have 2012 SXT 3.6 and hoping the tuner can bring it all home CAI, Throttle Body (Ported Fastman) and Custom Exhaust. I don't like the idea of running 91 all the time but I can get used to it if the performance is there.

Our set ups sound similar, the tune is great. No longer lag when I floor it. Yea I use 93 but hey that's the price you pay playing with the big boys!

Grey

I dropped the throttle boost down to 6%. I was draining gas fast. I'm starting to notice how smooth it drives. Haven't played with the shifting yet. No more lag for sure.

First off, let me just say I have owned my car for 20 months now and have not yet had a speeding ticket (or even been stopped for speeding), but since receiving my inTune-DCX Friday and running the 93 octane tune all weekend, I now have two speeding tickets...received within 30 minutes of each other, oddly enough.

It's not that I never broke the speed limit before, I did quite often actually. But just installing and running the new tune made driving my car much more fun all of a sudden, and so I had fun all weekend...to the "tune" of 1100 miles worth of driving, 3 tanks of gas, and two speeding tickets. Your results will vary most likely.

Back to your original question of whether or not it is worth the price. Yes and no is my answer to that, as the acquisition of the tuner is not just a more fun driving experience all of a sudden. If it were, I would honestly have to say it was not worth the $450...well, I have more important things I could have spent that money on, e.g. fixing the A/C in my G/F's car.

HOWEVER, the tuner also functions as a DTC reader (hopefully I will never need), and also allows me to change my rear-end ratio and tire size when they differ from stock settings (which I will be needing very soon). Those two attributes, when combined with the improvement in performance, do make the purchase "worth it" for me.

One more thing it allows that I hope to take advantage of soon is the ability to load custom tunes done specifically for my car. From what I gather, that is unique in the world of tuners for these cars.

In short, if you are trying to decide between purchasing one of these tuners and fixing the A/C in your significant other's car, you should probably spend the $$ on their A/C for now and save up for the tuner later. Me, personally, I bought my G/F a little 12v oscillating fan and clipped it to her glove-box lid and bought the tuner anyway...she is quite displeased with me, but that's okay, I can always take her for a ride to calm things down a little...

Good to know,

I think I'm just going to replace these factory 18's on my SXT. I see so many challengers with these stock wheels I'm getting a identity crisis.... I'll wait on the tuner and go with my 22's as planned.

Thanks for all the input......

how do you know if you have the i-1000 or the i-1000-DCX?

Nuke

how do you know if you have the i-1000 or the i-1000-DCX?

The quickest way to tell:
--is your car is 2011+ or newer? If so, your tuner is the new I-1000-DCX model.
--is your car is 2010 or older? If so, your tuner is the standard I-1000 model.

But this assumes you have been able to get your tuner working with your vehicle already.

If you have not had it working with your car yet, and you are experiencing errors of any kind, this all goes out the window and you would then want to determine the device's model via other means such as enclosed box label, accompanying paperwork, onboard Help->About menu, etc.

I accidently ordered the I-1000 for my 2011 first, and after being unsuccessful at loading tunes, I was set straight by DiabloSport support. Returning the I-1000 and getting the I-1000-DCX instead did the trick; now I am up & running the 93 octane tune and enjoying the hell out of it.

If it is DCX, it says it on the back of the tuner.

So my car was feeling a little sluggish recently, I reloaded the Tune and bam back to as when I first installed the tune.. Is that normal? For my car to like "forget" and return to its lag?

Mine did the same exact thing....I restored the factory to go get my drls activated and reloaded the tune and if felt a lot more peppy and shifted firmer than before.

That should not be happening.. Once it is tuned, it should stick..I would inquire about that.

^^^ I agree.
Just pull fuse 2 and you'll see a difference. I've done it many times with my tune installed. Pulling fuse 2 doesn't affect the tune.

Diablomike, Has this issue push start issue been corrected with the latest update? I want to be sure I am loading a program correct. Maybe if the push button is pulled off and a key is used during the program upload. Please advise us with the correct way to do it. Thanks


Grey,
Just to get you started off on the right foot and to clarify in case you get confused- You do not need to download ANYTHING off diablosport.com for the inTune DCX. Only the Trinity needs the DS software downloaded- your inTune has everything built in.

When you plug in the inTune to your PC using the usb cable, Run the application (if it doesn't autostart) and a screen (shaped like your inTune) will pop up and let you know it is doing the updates. You MUST update it. This step is laid out in the quick start guide.

After the update, take it to your car, plug it in and follow the quick start guide here. You will first need to install the PCM Calibration update to your car, THEN you can pick a tune. IMPORTANT: When the key cycle part comes (inTune will ask you to turn the car off for 10 seconds or whatever, then turn it on etc) SKIP THIS PART!!!!! Leave the car on RUN and press the green check mark on the screen. That's it. This is SO important! For some reason it does not work with our push starts and you will be left with a failed update or tune and a dead car that will only manually start with the turn key option (but will throw a check engine light..).

Follow this and you'll be smoooooooth sailing!

Id advise against using the push button for any tune loading. I had a Chally here yesterday that simply did not respond to key cycles at the end of the cal update with the button, popped it out and all was well with the key.

Its so simple to do, there's no reason not to :)

It is the driver adaptives that the ECU has learned. Fuel and timing trims.
Granny driving causes them to happen faster. Pulling F2 will clear them.

I just wanted to thank "shoot" and all the other pioneers on this thread for making my intune install way easier. Followed all the advice and successfully loaded the Diablo tune last night. Only hitch was the traction control warning light stayed on until I shut the car off and restarted it.

Thanks again!
