    Help with steinbauer tuning module

    Thanks :). Appreciate the help. We have three trucks between us. Mine is the 2010. Tony’s 2013 and a 2017. They are all a bit different. Mine seems old school with the 4.9 4M50 in it. It’s easy to clear codes with a 50 dollar reader/eraser.

    Help with steinbauer tuning module

    My plan is to talk to the dealer and likely steinbauer tomorrow to see if there is a better plan than the trial and error of turning the potentiometer up and down. I was thinking the same thing though. Try either extreme and go from there. I’ll let you know what happens tomorrow 😃

    Help with steinbauer tuning module

    Hi Owen. That’s what I thought too :). The steinbauer module works by extending the injector pulse. However in both cases the ECU were definitely effected. I dialogued with steinbauer USA directly to determine the correct model number for the 2010 and 2017. I purchased the units thru taber...

    Help with steinbauer tuning module

    Similar on my 2010. It’s easier to plug in an obd2 reader and clear the codes quickly. On the 2017 there is a way to clear codes via the dash.

    Spare wheel winch/lift/crane -ideas, please?

    You May find that a ramp is pretty easy to push the wheel up. It may be challenging given how high you are. I built a bracket to try to block and tackle from. It was a challenge as it flexed a lot. I tired a ramp and it’s very easy to roll the tire up or down. I can do it alone.

    Help with what code reader for 2010 FG140 please :)

    Thanks for the tips. The 2010 year was the last year for the old Mitsubishi engine. The 2012 onward was the Mercedes “upgraded” engine. Along with that upgrade came all sorts of electronics. I think the 2012 have codes that you can reset on the dash. The 2010 is pretty old school. We had a...
