ID SCT and quirks?
My 2005 has the SCT by ID - also has the Ford Gold Key alarm. Haven't been able to set my alarm because every time I do, it goes off almost instantly - a real pain in the butt.
So...I took the tune out today with the intention of taking it back to the dealer tomorrow. Now, I can set my alarm and it doesn't go off at all. Also, I noticed that my truck is SIGNIFICANTLY quieter without the SCT tune in. Anyone else noticed this? Any suggestions on what to do? I really would like my alarm to work - there has been a rash of SD thefts around here - but man, driving the truck without the SCT in it - I remember why I got the SCT in the first place!
Oh yeah - I also have been noticing lately that if I just start the truck up and don't let it warm up for 5 mins or so, when I take off, it shifts HARD - like horrible! I'm not talking about dogging on it - just normal acceleration. Any advice you guys can give me (other than "let it warm up for 5 mins" (which I do, when I can, and if I can't, I don't dog on it at all) - would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry mods - guess this belongs in the 6.0 Tuner forum - first available chance will you move it?
