    The data you read isn't from your vehicle - 2011 CTSV

    My car was previously tuned with another HP Tuners unit. When I attempt to read my file with mine, I am getting this message:

    hpmsg.png

    According to the HP Tuners help ( https://www.hptuners.com/help/VCM-Su...ur_vehicle.htm ) it will generate a stock file.

    I need to adjust a few things to pass emissions. Will writing the adjusted file clear my current tune with a stock calibrated file? I've never encountered this before from previous tunes.

    yes
    It doesn't have to be perfect, it just needs to be done in two weeks...

    A wise man once said "google it"

    So what should I do to resolve this? Just rewrite the entire file?

    It appears the file it is pulling is the modified file when comparing it to a stock 2011 CTSV file.

    Usually you only get that message with the fpcm or a transmission file, but even the transmission files that do that are only on newer platforms, so it should just the fpcm in which case you're most likely safe. Just read the file out and compare to stock. This will let you know if it's modified. You'll also want to check not to read the fpcm when reading - this will save you having to buy extra licenses for it and if it is modified will keep you from writing over something.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I compared the file it pulled to a stock file and it appears to be the modified file currently on the car.

    I did find a solution. I updated my unit to the newest beta version and I no longer received this error message. I also compared the non-error file to the file it pulled with the error and they are identical. Looks like the update resolved the issue.

    Interesting and good to hear - how old of a hpt version were you using?
