AEV ProCal Module Manual_reviews - 2

AEV ProCal Module Manual_reviews - 2

Throttle Tolerance Programming Mode
Description: This mode allows the user to program throttle tolerance and effectively pair a PCM and
pedal. When a new PCM or pedal has been installed, the previous values stored in the PCM may not
match the specific tolerance of the pedal and need to be reprogrammed.
Notes: This mode requires simultaneous inputs from a user on the throttle pedal as well as the
multifunction light stalk. When programming, follow the steps in a deliberate, but not rushed, manner.
The entire process should take approximately 3-4 seconds. If the process is completed either too fast or
too slow, the pairing will fail.
Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine off
and ignition on, plug the module into the OBD port and follow the steps below:
1. When the module is ready, the Electronic Throttle (ETC) Indicator (a lightning bolt surrounded by
two vertical lines) will flash on the dash.
2. To start the pedal routine, pull the headlight stalk back into the “Highbeam Flash” position, then
release the headlight stalk allowing it to fall back into the “Highbeam Off” position. The routine
has now started.
3. Press and hold the pedal all the way to the floor.
4. Move the headlight stalk forward to the “Highbeam On” position.
5. Release the pedal completely.
6. Move the headlight stalk back to the ”Highbeam Off” position.
7. The routine is now completed.
8. Turn the ignition Off, wait, then start the engine. Test the pedal and verify that it is functioning
properly. If not, repeat steps 2-8.
New Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Setup Mode
Description: This mode allows the user to program the vehicle’s VIN number into a new Powertrain
Control Module (PCM). When installing an AEV HEMI BuildersKit with a new PCM, the new module will
need to be initialized and paired with the vehicle’s VIN in order for it to properly function.
Notes: After setting the ProCal module’s DIP switches to this mode, no further input is required from
the user. The module will determine the vehicle’s VIN and initialize the new PCM accordingly. After
programming, the vehicle will need to be key cycled Off, then On.
Without initializing a new PCM, the vehicle’s theft system will prevent the vehicle from running and
possibly prevent the engine from cranking.
This mode is only for new PCMs, such as those included in AEV HEMI Builders Kit. If the process is run
again the AEV ProCal will report a successful programming (two honks), this is to confirm a proper
initialization.
Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine off
and ignition on, plug the module into the OBD port and wait for the horn to sound. If the horn does not
sound, consult the troubleshooting section of these instructions.
Clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes Mode
Description: This mode allows the user to turn off the Check Engine Light on the vehicle’s dash.
Notes: This function will clear any codes stored in the PCM and TIPM modules. In most cases this will
turn off the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) / Check Engine Light on the dash, provided there are no
active problems in any of the engine systems. Depending on Active and Stored DTC codes that exist in
certain vehicle modules, the AEV ProCal may not honk the horn after successful clearing of DTC codes,
this is normal.
Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine off
and ignition on, plug the module into the OBD port and wait for the horn to sound. If the horn does not
sound, consult the troubleshooting section of these instructions.
Extended Idle Mode
Feature Description: This mode allows the user to set the vehicle’s idle speed at a higher level than the
stock level (up to 2000 rpm). The newer engine systems found in the latest Chrysler cars idle at a lower
speed then previous generation vehicles. These lower idle speeds combined with an electronically
sensitive vehicle network can create issues for power intensive tools such as winches and on-board
welders.
Notes: To prevent the vehicle from going into a lower power mode or presenting the user with a low
power error lamp, the AEV ProCal should only be used while winching, using an on-board welder, or for
other power intensive tools.
This feature has a 10 minute timeout. The engine can safely be turned off at any time.
Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine on
and running, plug the module into the OBD port and engage the e-brake. Use the overhead light dimmer
on the multifunction stalk to set the vehicle’s idle speed. To turn the feature off, check to ensure that
the vehicle is in park or neutral, press the brakes firmly, and then release the e-brake. The idle should
slowly return to its stock level.
Steering Wheel Centering Mode
Description: The ESP system present on all newer Chrysler vehicles utilizes a digital sensor pack in the
steering wheel to determine exactly where the user wants the vehicle to go. Disconnecting the steering,
or replacing any of the related components (tie rod, front axle etc) can cause this module to become out
of correlation with the wheels. To center the wheels with the steering system, the AEV ProCal can
indicate to the user exactly where zero is on the internal sensor.
By enabling the Steering Center mode, the ProCal module determines where the steering wheel is and
lights up a corresponding turn signal lamp and turn signal indicator. If the wheel is too far to the right,
the right indicator will light. If the wheel is too far to the left, the left indicator will light. If the steering
wheel is stopped exactly dead center, the highbeam indicator and both turn signal lamps will light.
Notes: This is a feature normally found in the dealer diagnostic tool. The ProCal module will allow the
user to perform a proper alignment without having to use the dealer diagnostic tool.
The only way to exactly correlate the wheels with the steering wheel is to complete the process on an
alignment rack.
If the function is not terminated properly the lights/indicators may remain stuck on or off. Be sure to exit
the mode properly by enabling either turn signal before removing the module. If a clean exit does not
occur, plug the module back in, enable the turn signals, and then remove the module. This can also be
reset by removing and reconnecting the Positive (+) battery terminal.
Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the ignition
on and engine off, plug the module into the OBD port. Use the indications to center the wheel. To exit
the mode, activate either the right or left turn signal, and then remove the module.
Troubleshooting
On occasion, the ProCal module may be unable to complete a desired request for a variety of reasons,
including network errors, an invalid DIP switch setting, or a prohibited request. For example, if a user
tries to set a TPMS low pressure threshold on a 2007 JK Wrangler, the module will abort and present an
error code because the 2007 JK Wrangler does not have TPMS.
When in an error state, the ProCal module will flash a sequence on the dashboard of the vehicle, usually
on the vehicle’s theft system indicator (this is most commonly a red LED in the cluster). This is a two
stage display, where a sequence is flashed once, followed by a short pause, then another sequence, and
finally a longer pause and the code will repeat. Simply count the two sequences and refer to the list
below. For example, if using an improper DIP switch combination the user may see 6 flashes followed by
a short pause, and then 4 more flashes.
