It is standard as I am only one guy and try to sift through 50+ emails a day, all while trying to get the actual work done that pays the bills in between. I haven't been charging anyone to unlock their ECUs so I just get them done as I can.

I am pretty sure I got everyone unlocked that has emailed me thus far. No need to send anything anywhere.

If anyone needs to know how to wire in the serial port on a Gen 1 harness I have figured it out. Just PM me.

HPF and unlocking the AEM

AEMPro software connect sequence. AEMtuner does not work with r Aem v1

AEM download link
http://www.aemelectronics.com/catalo...-downloads-72/

Important to follow or u will not be able to connect.

1 Car off
2 ignition off
3 have USB to serial cable plugged into computer and Aem
3 load AEMPro software
4 in dialog box select serial and choose comport from drop down box
5 Then select from dialog box connect In AEMPro
6 when Aempro has no communication errors and is waiting to connect then turn on ignition without starting car. If u have errors turn off car and wait 15 seconds then shutdown AEMPro unplug USB serial cable and put it back in and repeat above sequcence.
7 AEMPro will then download the calibration file for ur Aem and AEMPro will have live data
8 Then u can start the car if u wish
9 if u want to download the log u have to have the car off and follow the same above sequence.
10 if the software hangs for any reason then u have to repeat the same sequence. Sometimes u have to unplug the USB to serial cable and restart the aempro software
11 any changes u make in AEMPro while connected directly updates the AEM

Note: I know this is a pain in the ass but believe me this works and when u get the hang of it it's not a problem. I have spent a long time figuring this out so I want to save u guys the frustration.

Thanks a lot for the step by step procedure beign3!

Now, I'm a bit puzzled as I took out my AEM v1 today and I don't seem to have a Serial output. Anybody else in the same situation?

Ur AEM is a Generation 1 as it has two connectors verses Gen 2 which has 3 smaller ones. So urs will not have a serial port on the unit. Only Generation 2 has it. If u look on the harness on the AEM side u will see a 3 pin connector labeled "aux sensor" this is the serial port on Gen 1. U need to add the DB9 Female connector. If urs does not have that u can add the the wires to the connector to the AEM. Pm me and I can get u going with the wiring. I have been helping a few with getting setup.

Re: HPF and unlocking the AEM

Can some ex-HPF guy provide us with the version 1 pinout?

It is a pain to not be able to do custom modifications...

Here are the pinouts that HPF provided for pre-programmed options. Hope this helps. If it would be useful I can PDF the entire 176 page install manual complete with color photos. Just let me know.

Re: HPF and unlocking the AEM

That's exactly what I was looking for.
Can you please scan all pages and upload the PDF somewhere so we could download it?

Thanks
