Wowegner If you are tuned/deleted and make changes with AlphaOBD, do you have to re-flash your tune after or is it unaffected by the changes made with AlphaOBD?

Xokia Correct LED setting on the low beams does not shut off the PWM. The HID setting on low beams shuts off PWM.

LED setting on any of the other lights does shut off PWM on those lights.

Whichever one you have the platform for. If you have android devices, you can get the app from google play store. If you prefer windows, you can download the software from their site. iOS isnít supported.

hink For the record -- setting LED on any of the light groups will disable PWM (cause of the flickering)-- HOWEVER, for the low beams you must ALSO enable High Intensity Discharge lamps. That's the option that disables PWM on the low beams. All my lights are replaced with LEDs and i have zero flickering and zero light out messages.

Did yours ever give you a disconnection message? When I start the process it will bleed the front right and then says it has lost connection with the ecu.

dbow20 Has anyone had success with bleeding the ABS on a 2014+ truck?

V8 WagonMan Jimmy07 You were absolutely right, it was the security gateway interfering with AlphaOBD.

I tried with a Z automotive bypass module I happened to have around, and It let me change tire size, led lighting etc. in a snap.
The only problem is the SGW module is mounted behind the radio, so I have to take the radio out to reach for the SGW, unplug it and plug the Z automotive bypass, do the AlphaObd thing and then reconnect the SGW and put all console back together.

It worked like a charm.

dbow20 I set the high discharge headlamps to yes and I think the flickering is gone. I will investigate more tonight when it’s dark. However, I think with that setting enabled the DRLs are the same intensity or brightness and the low beams when the lights are on. I don’t think it’s a big deal just an observation.
