Anyone out there using this system? I am trying to set up the PCV to recognize auto tune, and I'm really struggling. Any guidance from those in the know?

There is a jumper that comes with the auto tune plug it into the open port on the auto tune and you will have comunication. The jumper is just a small plug that looks empty but is needed to close the comunication loop. Let me know if you have any other issues

Hi adubaz7,

So I have all connections made, including the short 7 inch jumper between the PCV and the Autotune and the two empty plugs in both modules. Still no ability to set up the autotune. Now, I need to add, that, since I do not own a laptop, I am trying to do this from my desktop in the house. Do I need to have the PCV and Autotune installed and hooked up on my Prowler, and do this with a laptop??
Thanks!

the two empty plugs in both modules.

I am not sure I follow this part of your response
There should be PC-V 7in jumper to auto tune and the second port on the auto tune needs the resistor plug, however there is no need to plug the extra port on the PC-V.
As far as the auto tune needing the laptop I dont know but you need to at least turn on the ignition with all systems pluged in and connected to computer I assume Not 100% sure of that but it is much easier to use when you can watch the changes make a difference.

I just meant that I have one end of the 7 inch jumper in the autotune box and the other end in the PCV box, and an empty plug in the left over "cavity" in each box.
OK. Sounds like I need to fully install the system on the machine and then hook up to a computer. By the way, the CD says it is compatible with up to Windows XP. What OS are you running on your laptop?
Thanks!

I have Vista but I think part of your problem may be that you think that the little " empty plug " that you have plugged in must only be plugged into the auto tune do not use in the PC-V I dont think it will work right. Also make sure that that tiny plug is not empty that it has a tiny resistor in it. If this is not correct it will not work!

Hmm, well I did not receive a jumper plug with a resistor in it. Other than the harnesses that jumper between the PCV and EFI injectors, and the Autotune Oxy sensor harness, I only have the 7 inch jumper (which connects the PCV and the Autotune) and 2 black plastic "plugs" that fit into the empty cavities of the PCV and /or Autotune box. I guess I'll call tech support tomorrow and see if I am missing a part.

I bet that those plugs are the resistor plug I am talking about unplug the one on the PC-V and try it again. Also I assume this is correct but you did connect power to the auto tune this should be ignition power.

did you get the system working?
Not yet. Turns out my PC would not recognize the Power Commander V at all, so, per their recommendation, I returned it. They plugged it into their PC, and......no problem! It is on it's way back to me now. I also borrowed a laptop and will try that next.
