What You’ll Need:

  • The SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner
  • A phone/tablet with bluetooth connectivity.
  • A hairpin or paperclip that is straightened out (used for reset button)

How To Fix iTSX Tuner Problems

  • Step 1: First, make sure the iTSX tuner is plugged in all the way into the OBD-II port firmly. when it is plugged in firmly the light should flash a couple times and then the light should turn off.
  • Step 2: Open up your personal device’s bluetooth scanner and turn it on.
  • Step 3: This is the important step! While the tuner is plugged into your OBD-II port, press the reset button with the paperclip/hairpin earlier. It is crucial you do it while the device is plugged in! I tried hitting reset without it plugged in assuming it would use a mechanical switch instead of electronic switch to reset the device.
  • Step 4: Wait for the “SCT iTSX Tuner” to pop up on your device and connect.
  • Step 5: You’re all done! Now just upload the tunes sent to you by BAMA, follow the instructions on the app, and enjoy your tune!

I loved the tune that this handheld tuner gave me. It added lots of horsepower and changed my car completely. Read my review about the tune itself here!
