Before you start

When you read a vehicle, you are transferring calibration information from the control module(s) in your vehicle to VCM Editor. The read process will automatically detect the presence of relevant VCMS in the vehicle and read them all in sequence. The various status messages and the progress bar give information about the current state of the read.

It is not possible to harm any of the vehicle's control modules during the read process. If communication is lost, the program will automatically reset the module. It will then prompt you to correct the problem and/or try again.

Read Procedure

1. Connect your HP Tuners interface device to a laptop with VCM Suite installed. Then, connect the device to the vehicle's OBD-II diagnostic port.

2. If VCM Scanner is already open, close it before proceeding.

3. Open or Re-Open VCM Editor.

4. If a tune file is open, close it by selecting File > Close in the menu bar.

5. Turn the vehicle ignition to the ON (or RUN) position, but do not start the engine. NOTE: Some vehicles require special procedures to be put in the correct state.

8. The Vehicle Reader window appears. Wait 10 to 15 seconds.

9. Click the Read button.

10. Allow VCM Editor to read the vehicle controllers until the status bar indicates the read is complete. NOTE: During the read, the instrument panel may briefly display all sorts of indicators anderror messages and some accessories may appear to turn on and off randomly. This is normal. NOTE: For vehicles with multiple VCMS (for example: LS2 A4 vehicles), there is a 15-secondpause between reading each module.

11. Turn off the ignition and unplug the interface cable.

12. The file will automatically open in VCM Editor.

13. If this is the initial read of the stock controller, we strongly recommend that you save (and backup) the file before any modifications are made. You may wish to restore your vehicle to the stock tune at a later date.

SCT X4

Quick start

Don't want to read all this? It took a long time to create for you, but that's fine. I get it. Here is a QuickStart Guide and Video Tutorial for tuning your vehicle with the SCT X4.

Before you start

If you were sent a LOAD FIRST file, it must be flashed before the tune.

Make sure your X4 device is up to date, download "device updater" and install it on your computer.

Click here for Device Updater.

Plug the SCT Device into your computer and check for updates

What you need

SCT X4 Device

Laptop

Tuning Procedure

1. Download the Tune File onto your laptop and save it in a folder or somewhere you know where it is.

Note: Skip to step 3 if your device came preloaded!

2. Click LOAD CUSTOM TUNE button on the Device Updater App and this will open the next page. Hit Browse and find the file(s) you've saved on your computer. This will drop them into the left window on the screen. Hit the arrow to drag them into the right window. Click Program on the bottom and this will load the custom files onto the device. Once you are done you can unplug the device and connect to truck.

Note: On 6.7L Powerstroke trucks using an X4, please connect tuner to truck first and hit Vehicle Info, it will prompt you to turn key on etc, once it is completed it will show your VIN etc. Once that screen pops up you can disconnect from truck.

3. Load the tune onto the truck, press Program Vehicle and when prompted select one of the custom tunes and follow the prompts on the screen to load. It is easy to miss the step where you select the custom tunes and you will accidentally load in a preloaded tune. This will let the truck only have one start and then it won't start again. This isn't a problem, but you will need to go back through and load the correct custom tune.

What you need

2018-2022 Cummins 6.7L Bypass Cable

How to install the cable

1.  Twist the tan and yellow wires so that there is at least one twist every two inches.

2.  Carefully, remove the OBDII connector from the dash by depressing the tabs on the sides.

3.  Remove the two grey pin retainers from the back of the connector. 

4.  One at a time, remove & replace the yellow and brown wires from locations 6 & 14. For a 2018 truck, replace the yellow with yellow and the brown with tan. For the 2019-2022s, replace the yellow with tan and the brown/green with yellow. No matter the wire colors, the pins go in 6 and 14.

Note: If you install the cable and can’t connect to the truck, try swapping the wires.

Another Note: A 1.5mm wide flat terminal release tool or a pointed sewing needle works for removing pins.

5.  Reinstall the two grey pin retainers.

6.  Locate the green “Star” connector above the parking brake. For 2018 plug the harness into any empty space, for 2019-2022 plug the harness into the fifth position from the left at the bottom.

7.  Cover & insulate the pins you removed from the OBDII connector.

8.  Reinstall the OBDII connector into the factory location.

Notes

This cable is meant to be installed and left in the vehicle, NOT intended to be uninstalled and re-used. Once installed, the OBDII will still function normally.

The Cummins Bypass Cable (also known as the Security Gateway Module Bypass cable) can be used in the following scenarios and with multiple platforms: flashing a tune, changing the tire size, adding an aftermarket remote start, using a Snap-on or other OBDII scanner, or adding AMP Steps
