Any idea if this tool will allow you to set a different sized fuel tank? I just swapped out the OEM tank for a 50 gallon midship tank from Titan. I am not sure if the fuel gauge is accurate yet or not, but the DTE is definitely not accurate. I have heard you can get the DTE recalibrated if you delete and tune with PPEI on an Ez-Lynk, but I am not ready for that step just yet in my warranty voyage.

Thanks!

If no one else gets to it first, I can check check this out Friday. Seems like I've seen something but I could be wrong.

And I live close to you near Arnold.

I have the titan tank as well. I can go 125 +/- miles towing or 200 +/- solo before the OEM fuel gauge will start to drop. That translates into 450-500 miles of fuel towing and 750 miles of fuel driving solo. I have the Edge Evolution so I know when the fuel tank starts dropping below 100%.

All, I'm new to this particular forum but wanted to share my experience as well as other's experiences from another forum using the AE tool. We had been using it for a good while now but as we used it more we began to see odd things happen to our trucks when we turned certain features on. For example, when we turned the single zone Automatic Temperature Control on, the truck lost it's branding and theme's on the 8.4 radio, when I tried to turn front parksense on, I lost my backup cam button and it was replaced with a power fold headrest button. We have seen a truck completely switch from English Units to Metric and from left hand drive to right hand drive.

Further investigation proved that there is an issue with the way that AE writes the configuration values to BCM. Sparing all of the binary details, when AE writes values, it is possible that it wipes out other values in that shared BCM memory location. We have opened no less than 5 calls with AE about it and they seem to have no interest in fixing the problem.

So my PSA on the AE tool is to be careful with it. If you are doing things that other people have done already, you will probably be ok (I still bet you will have corruption in your BCM settings, but it just won't affect your truck). Don't go randomly changing settings, as it may be your one way ticket to the dealer to have your truck re-flashed and hopefully restored back to factory settings.

Hope I'm not overstepping my bounds being new to this forum, but I just wanted to share my as well as other's experiences.

^^^^ Thanks for the cautionary info. These vehicles are so computer intergrated and complicated that changing/adding 1 new thing may screw up a dozen others. Itís quite unfortunate that AE has no interest in fixing what they screwed up.

I believe you, they always paint a pretty picture on these non OEM software, then the bugs start showing up, and where's the support then ? I've seen it all too often.

Sub'd also. Spoke to 4x4x4door about possibly turning off / zeroing out TPMS. If you can do this, you are the man. Thanks ahead for any effort applied to this.

I would like to start out by saying @DeereGuy183 is correct.

I used the AE to add a few options and it worked perfectly fine, ie
heated/ventilated seat soft button
heated steering wheel soft button
SRT start up page
fog lights
fogs on with high beams
- and it worked just fine.

The problem I ran into is when I tried to add the "performance/offroad pages", and a few other random options. This really opened up a worm whole in my truck, I started having numerous problems - remote start stopped working, abs, air bag lights came on.

Long story short a trip to the dealer to have them flash the BCM wasn't too bad. It is marked as a .2 hour job and cost around 20$, "when you're out of warranty that is".

Overall IMO I feel that once we start adding the very random options our trucks weren't designed to have, is where we run into problems.

Either way I would like to not scare people away and keep this thread moving in a good direction so we can help each other help one another.

Ok, I found the TPMS settings and you can enter 0. Ironically they're in the RFH submenu but I'll repeat for someone who's not read everything, that the RFH cannot be adjusted with the this software. @boggerdak was asking about zeroing out the values because he didn't put the sensors in his aftermarket wheels. I don't know that this will solve that issue because I feel like the system is going to look for the sensors regardless if the values are set to 0 or not. I have sensors so I can't fully test it out.

I found an option on the AE at the very bottom of the menu that says
- Vehicle Configuration Programmed Status / Last Programmed Status

Once entered these pop up -
- Last Programmed Status
- Vehicle Configuration Programmed Status
- Exit

Not sure if one of these would "remember" what our factory BCM settings are and then we would we be able to revert back to if we mess something up or?...

Anyone have any knowledge?
