now that your tune is loaded, it's time to double check your tuners work
1 start your vehicle and plug your tuning device into your vehicles OBD2 port
2 connect the USB cable to the tuning device
I tuck my tuning device under the floor mats to keep it from shifting while driving
3 plug in the USB cable to your laptop and select which live link program you need to use (I am using an Xcal3 and Live link version 6.0 due to vista, but I have version 5.1 for when I use the Xcal2)
not all computers will ask for this but mine does for security reason, so go ahead and click "continue"
and live link will open (this is version 6.0, version 5.1 is slightly different)
4 click on the "module" button in the top left hand corner and set your system up
5 set up your PID's (things to datalog) by clicking the "command" button in the top left hand corner of your screen
once you click on the "command" button, scroll down and click on "configure datalog items"
next you will see the following
now the fun begins (select the PID's as your tuner requires, 25 maximum if you're playing around or doing your own tuning) just click on the "+" sign by each name and the choices will expand
I chose to only select one since this is a "how to" (of the 502 options, if you look closely at the lower left hand corner you can see I only chose one) and click "ok" when your selections have been made
once you click the "ok" button your choices will be initialized
when you see this screen you are ready to begin recording information from your vehicles ECM (aka datalogging)
once again head to the top left hand side of the screen and click on teh green button (it says "start datalogging")
to stop, just click on the red button there at teh top left hand side of the screen (it says "stop datalogging")
now how to save the file to your computer so you can attach it to an email and send to your tuner
once again head to the upper left hand side of the screen, click on "file" and scroll down to "save file as"
then choose a name and location for the file and click "save"
congratulations, you are now ready to send that file to your tuner or review it yourself
when you click to open the file it will open as a Microsoft Excel document, for easy review
