How do I license or flash a controller with FlashScan/AutoCal V2?

FlashScan V2

Follow these steps to license and flash the selected controller.

  1. Setup FlashScan V2 for BBX features if not already setup.
  2. Copy selected tune file(s) from your PC to FlashScan V2 if not already copied.
  3. Connect your FlashScan V2 device to your vehicle.
  4. Turn the vehicle ignition to the On positon (not the Accessory position.  Vehicle must not be cranked/running when flashing).
  5. Navigate to the F2 Tune Tool -> F1 Tuning and select either F2 Program Cal or F3Program Full menu option.
  6. Using the arrow keys, navigate to the correct tune file and select OK.
  7. If the controller has not been licensed by the selected FlashScan V2 previously, you will be presented with the License this controller now? message.  Select Yes to license the controller.
