Everyone just wants to say "Hey! Wait! Don't do that to your truck!". You probably have to get the predator updated since it's saying it doesn't support it or some chit.

The earliest model Predators become useless after the latest Ford flashes. I have one myself and it's only good for diagnostics now (much better than the SCT). You can contact Diablo, but I'm sure that the early models aren't updatable enough for the latest flashes.

my advice is to just return it where you bought it and buy a better tuner....
