SCT Livewire Oil Temp

I recently bought a SCT Livewire and have a couple of questions.
Connected to my 04 F350 it does not show the oil temp or even offer the option to display the oil temp like it does the ECT, TFT......ect. Is that option not available on the 04 6.0?


Thank you in advance for any help/advise
Lonnie

Hi Lonnie. I think there is a firmware update that will allow your livewire to read that PID.

Thank you, I'll check it. I thought it had the latest but I may have looked at it wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

According to SCT website the latest firmware is 1.1.295 and the latest tune revision is 1.3.7 and that is what I have. Can I reload the firmware and tune revision? If so should I put my truck back to stock first?

I would call them and ask them which firmware contains the PID to monitor EOT. A couple of months ago, they had a beta version that was loaded on an SCT TSX (touch screen extreme) to monitor EOT. I would have figured they would have released it for their other devices (X3 and livewire) by now.

Oh and before I forget, YES, absolutely return to stock before changing tunes or attempting to update firmware. In this case, if you already have the latest that is available on their website, I wouldn't go through the trouble. Call them like I mentioned above.

I returned to stock and reinstalled the firmware and latest software version with no change. I'll have to call them Monday.

TSX does not have the PID right either, I have been trying for 8 months now with no success.

Please read the other post regarding SCT and EOT. Mine works. I have the wireless version and maybe this does not pertain to your version of hardware. Basically what I did was upload Live Link from their website (SCT), hook laptop up to the SCT while the truck was running, selected what PID's I want to trend, save these parameters, upload the saved file to my SCT. My SCT now has the selected PID's which include the EOT in degrees F.

Even if you do have the engine oil temp in f., saved from live link, to a live wire or a TSX device, I doubt you are seeing the tru Temp on the oil. Try doing a cold test on the EOT and ECT you monitor, and see if the values are even close. I would say they are 35-40deg f. hotter on the EOT PID when it is cold. which i admit is better than it was reading in what they called celsius, but again wasn't even close.
You make it sound easy enough though.
