    unlocking tuner locked ecm with tuners password?

    Gday All...

    Its just a quick question that I am pretty sure I have answered but here goes....
    My ecm (E38) was locked by the tuner (mechanic)... Being a top bloke that he is (and that is the honest truth) , he was more than happy to supply me with unlock key so I could try to use my own set up on my own car..
    Now from what I know because he locked it he is the only one that can "play" with it even though he gave me the unlock code?
    Im a little confused to why even though he passed on the unlock code why I cannot read the tune file with my MPVI pro ?
    Unfortunately due to a serious back injury and the distance to get to my mechanic I am going to find it very hard to actually get to him anywhrere in the near future, hence why he was more than happy to help me out...
    Perhaps Im doing something wrong , but I would be more than happy to any response's...

    Thanks

    Justin
