  • PCMTuner activation

It needs to offer email address to dealer to activate PCMTuner ECU programmer. It’s not convenient and takes much time to wait.

As long as you registered the PCMTuner software, you have already active the device at the same time. No longer provide your email address to your dealer for activation.


  • PCMTuner cannot use once changing computer

Sometimes, customer wants to use PCMTuner on other computers, but it needs to contact dealer to cancel the software registration and activate again.

It’s not quality problem. It’s specially designed by PCMTuner team for safety factor. They don’t let the chip be fully welded to the PCB. Because if user welds the chip or anyone tries to touch it, the dongle will damage soon and lock.

Problem 2:
The PCMTuner Dongle gets hot when it’s working.

It’s normal. Any PCB operation will expand heat, so it can be protected from damage due to high temperature.
