Good luck. I love mine but I hate it at the same time. It's a poorly designed product. When I uninstalled it last week to bring my truck in for service it erased my PCM and I had to use recovery mode to fix it. Very scary. But then again when it works well it makes a huge difference. Truck even sounds different.

Ya, thats a big help to the guy


Like I told you in the other thread, I would NOT try to put it in the truck without updating it from the internet. Your best bet now is to get in touch with Bullydog tech support and iron out why it won't download the updates. I believe your computer is not finding the device and installing the proper drivers for it.

There was an issue with the BullyDog Agent program too. I had to get a file e-mailed to me from BD tech support to get the Agent to recognize my Power Pup. Glad you like what it does in the end when it works. After a few more problems you are going to start to wonder if it is really worth it.

Definetly update it. There was a version out there that wouldn't let my truck shift at WOT unless I let off the gas. Being that yours is also an '06 you might have problems.

did the manual manage to find the trash can or what..??

i would say every question you have had could be answered in the manual, on their website, or by calling them....etc....

Ok, we don't need this kind of thing............... Like I told you before, you should wait till you get in touch with a tech before you do anything else. The programmer NEEDS TO BE UPDATED before you should EVER install it into your truck.

you're serious....i mean, every other programmer i have ever seen comes with a manual that explains most or all features and explains how to correctly connect it to your PC

and of course i always go to the manufacturers website and download the latest manual first, then get the latest updates, but you have to get the drivers loaded on your PC correctly before the programmer will be able to be updated, getting the latest revision of the manual might help you get that done right as well as downloading the latest version of the software that came with the programmer

the manual could also be on the disc that came with it, that's pretty common these days instead of printing the manual on paper

oooo wow, look what i found, i dont even have that programmer in front of me or have the part number and i managed to find the full manual

http://www.bullydog.us/instructions/BD_40010.pdf

it was at bullydog.com

then i clicked on support and then Instructions/FAQ and scrolled down to the Power Pup PN 42590 (if you have the Hemi that is)

then i clicked on the "Instructions"

you could even download the latest version of Update Agent from the support site...and then the download section for updates to load into your programmer

if you go to the Download Center you will see a huge advisory that says you should ALWAYS UPDATE YOUR DOWNLOADER BEFORE YOU INSTALL

this is all very simple basic stuff man, if you're just going to rush through it, not read anything, not look into anything, and just go plugging the box into your truck's PCM...well/....it may not go well, but you have the resources now, so take some time to read and do every step
