SCT HELP!!!

Hey everyone, I bought a used SCT X3 (3000), it is unlocked and has 5 unlocks left.
Put Vivian's tunes on the unit and go to upload them to my truck. 3 error codes.
I have an older edge with a little black box under the hood that is plugged into the ECM with large wire bundles. I turned this all back to 0 or off. I still want that as a monitor for the time being.

Do I need to unplug the edge setup to upload my new tunes?
called SCT and they said it could be a voltage problem so hooked the drivers side battery to the charger and no changes.
HELP!!!

This is the only code (1017) I could find on SCT website. The other two aren't listed.

I did the find updates automatically on the SCT uploaded program, before loading my tunes onto it.
I have a hunch it has something to do with that Edge.

I'm fairly certain you'll need to do away w the edge stuff and reload the stock file. Then load the sct.

I think since it is plugged into the ecm it needs taken off I could be wrong

i really do not know but i seem to remember reading here somewhere that you have to disconnect the edge return to staock, then load your tunes then reconnect the edge to use as a monitor. not at all certain of this but i think i read that somewhere. i am just buying my looney tune and have not even finished the order or loaded it yet so take this with a grain of salt.

As a monitor yes...but in your original post you said you loaded the tunes to the unit...THEN TRIED TO LOAD THEM TO YOUR TRUCK....doing so with the edge intact is called stacking tuners. And no. You can't do that. Ditch the edge completely...sell it...load the sct...done deal.

And start saving for a transmission.

Completely return the truck to stock and diconnect edge... start the truck and make sure everything is Kosher.... then load the SCT.. once tuned you can plug the edge back in and run it as a monitor only.... at least thats what ive always read....

does teh edge plug in via obd2 or actually hardwire into the ecm?.. if its not obd2 then you can not run it at all
