Livewire TS

Just got it in today and sadly it didn't come with any instructions. Im hearing alot about saving the OEM file before tuning the truck and just curious on how to do that before I start playing around.

The first time you load a tune it will save the stock tune on the device, so you can return back to stock at any time.

How To Save Your Stock File With An SCT

I just did mine last night. that link is for the regular sct that most people still have. My ts showed up yesterday, basically, go to the sct website, sctflash.com and look under support or something, and click on updates. Then find the 5015 ts, click on it and then download the software, and drivers. Then plug your tuner in and you can transfer tunes to and from your device with the software, make sure you save your stock file on the computer somewhere you can find it.

Im using the SCT Device Updater and it keeps giving me the message File Failed then SCT Flash Failed whenever I click on the Get Stock File from Device button. What am I doing wrong?

I assune youve loaded a tune onto your truck, and therefor should have a copy of your stock tune on the ts. If It doesnt transfer it, id say wrong download maybe, drivers maybe, or maybe you need to call sct. I think theyre still workin some bugs out.
