thats it in a nutshell. Though even with out the autotune how would you tune your bike at that elevation if you didnt take your laptop? I don't mind the extra step to make sure I don't burn a ring or fowl some plugs becuase I am trying to guess. That is why I ditched the pushbutton controllers to begin with. But to each his own.

I don't think the intention of this thread was to confuse or upset. Nobody in this thread ever said the autotune would automatically make your bike run perfect.

The autotune is a great tool. But it's just that, a tool. It is not a plug and ride mod that will automatically build a map for you. You will have to learn how to use it. It only makes small adjustments. This means it will take many runs to get it dialed in. This is also why it's critical to start with a map that is close.

I believe that it does use the adjustment trims on the fly based on my experience with it and discussions with power commander support. When enabled, the fuel level is based off of the base map + the trims. You also have the ability to increase the +/- limit of the trims allowing it to make more dramatic changes. If you only need fine tuning and do not want this, you could decrease these limits. If you are at the current trim limits, you can accept the trims. Then, it will add them to your base map and reset the trims back to zero.

Also, make sure you have the latest firmware from their website in your PCV controller as it includes a few fixes for the earlier models.

Does anyone have a pic of which slots on the PC5 are for the hardware switch wiring? I don't have my PC manual anymore and the online one is just a quickstart guide...

Hardware switch wires are connected here:



The install instructions can be found here:
http://www.powercommander.com/downlo.../eng22-002.pdf

The 2nd pages explains where to put the wires:

"The PCV has the ability to hold 2 different base maps. You can switch on the fly between these two base maps when you hook up a switch to the MAP inputs. You can use any open/close type switch. The polarity of the wires is not important. When using the Autotune kit one position will hold a base map and the other position will let you activate the learning mode. When the switch is “CLOSED” Autotune will be activated."

OK slight problem... I hooked up the auto tune and PCV exactally as the initial post here explains. I also set up the software and PCV settings as explained. I have had my quad out several times but I have never seen any recommended trim level adjustments in the "trim" tab. Everytime I look it's all zero's....

The first time I took my raptor out it would bog out once I went past half throttle. I came back and looked at the trims and followed the directions but there were only zero's. I then calibrated the throttle positions and went out for a good 5 minute ride and I didn't have any bog past half throttle. I hooked it up to the lap top and once again everything was zero's. This went on for several runs and each time the quad seemed to run fine. I pulled my plug tonight and the diode and post are light chocolate color and the rest of the plug is a little black. I am now wondering if if the autotune is even working (yes power light is on) or if I am need to do somehting else? Thanks in advance for the help.

Did you disable the hardware switch mode and set the time delay to something like 30 seconds? Also you have to leave the power connected to the autotune unit to retain the changes.

As Spartan said, make sure you have the hardware switched enabled if you have one installed. If you don't have a hardware switch installed, make sure and disable it. Also make sure you have the autotune enabled in the menu.

Then hook up your laptop to the PC5 and turn on the raptor. See if the A/F numbers are changing as the raptor is idling.

I enabled the auto tune, the time is set to 30 seconds and I don't have a switch so that is turned off as well. Everytime I have come back from a ride I have turned off the the raptor using the key before I hooked up the lap top. Is that what my problem is?
