I have 2” lift and run 265’s and most of my weight is low with skids, US off road bumper with winch and no roof rack. I run with AFE CAI w2” spacer, cat-back exhaust and Jmax snorkel
I had noticed less hard downshifting driving over the continental divide in July and this may explain it - I’d just had a full trans flush done 😊G'day,
with regard to cruise control...
Raptor advise doing a trans flush, or even a pan dump n fill will help .... as the ATF ages and wears... it can get heavier .... keeping the ATF fresh will reduce the instance of hard kick downs.
the cruise control has never been great in the FJ, trying to keep a brick at constant speed isn't easy... at the best of times... lol...
G'Day Mate,Haven't been following this since I sold the FJ but any chance that the old tuner can be "un-bricked" yet? This thing is just sitting my basement collecting dust.
Hey Lee44, They told me it was the original flash for my 2010 FJ, not an update. I didn't save it! When I got the FJ back I knew something was up. I ran for a whole day and wondered what had happened so I called Toyota.@stephous Do you know if it was a different flash, update, from your original OEM flash? Did you save the new one they flashed? Just wondering but I suppose after all these years there is no new OEM flash..
After some operator-induced errors, I successfully updated the Powergate (turn off all anti-virus/pop-up blocker; do not run Raptor Tune software from a zip file; copy program to a normal Word file; right click and "run as administrator").
I then hooked the PG up to the FJ's OBD and attempted to read the stock ECU file. No dice: "Calibration file not found. 335C3000." Per Tim's instructions, I reconnected the PG to my laptop, re-ran the Raptor Tune software, and clicked the “download LOG” tab on the left side of the screen. I saved this log file and emailed it to Tim. Apparently, the file will now be sent to Italy to Alientech for some kind of update, then I'll get further direction next week.
I ultimately got a refund and gave up on it. It was too complicated. I think they wanted me to take a photo of some code on my ECU...apparently some subsection of ECUs were not compatible with the PowerGate. I just got frustrated with the whole thing.Hey I was wondering what Alientech replied back to you with. I’m having the same problem. I would really appreciate a response.
