SCT LiveWire Xtreme

Finally got a dpf delete pipe and SCT Livewire tuner with Innovative Diesels custom tunes. So far only loaded the street tune. Truck runs great and shifts nice and firm. Question I have is for those that have the SCT is there a way to adjust the backlight ? it seems kinda bright at night. Also when you shut the truck off can you get the tuner to shut off ? I could see it getting broke into because someone see's the blue glow at night.

There's some type of backlight dimmer type thing, but it seems like I remember it still seems real bright at night... I got it to turn off without just unplugging it, by just pressing in the turn wheel thing for a while till it turned off...

I don't even run the monitor on mine except when I'm driving for very extended amounts of time, so I think at night you'd be fine to drive without...

There is a backlight option in the menu, to turn it off hold the ESC button down. Just for the theft issue, I do not like having the flash tuners being the gauges. Somebody breaks in and takes it you will not be able to reflash the computer. The truck also gives the device more abuse and will have a higher tendancy to break. My other concern is that at some point the manufacturer will no longer suport the product, for what ever reason. All this rambling to just say I like to have seperate monitoring

I'll have to try the esc button. I agree with you guys in saying to program it and then take it out of the truck. It's just that I don't have any other gauges right now to monitor EGT's. I guess I know what I'm buying next. Can you hook the sct up to a computer and copy the file on it to the computer so there is a back-up
