I have an odd need and I am curious if there is a programmer on the market that could do what I want. I have a 2002 F150 FX4 and I would like a programmer that can tune that, but I would also like it to be able to read/clear engine codes on my wife's 2008 Saturn Outlook. Is there a programmer out there that will tune my truck while also being able to read codes on other models?
A SCT tuner will tune the F150 and can read codes from other Fords but I doubt it would read it from another brand although I've never tried. You probably would need a more generic code reader to be able to do that.
We all wish!!
This is why the tuner companies typically VIN lock the tuner so that it can only be used on 1 vehicle at a time. Otherwise, you could take your tuner and hook up all your vehicles, and your buddies, and their buddies....
I read that the SCT tuner can re set the computer back to factory without any evidence of being changed. Can anyone confirme this from experience? Sounds nice but i dont want to forfiet the warrenty. What can be changed? Filters but not the whole intake? Mufflers? Spark plugs?
