Smarty Touch Communication Errors
Sometimes you will run into errors when running the Smarty Touch. Thankfully most of these can be solved rather easily!
Typically it isn't anything you did wrong or anything within the Smarty settings themselves. Let's look at a quick breakdown of some of the more common errors.

These errors can be caused by a variety of things, but what fixes them is oftentimes the same.
What we recommend doing here is to:
-Remove any ABS fuses and keep them out until the problem is solved
-Put a battery charger on the truck
-If you have an aftermarket lift pump, remove the relay for it (sometimes the fuse alone isn't enough here)
-Clean the OBDII port and battery connections
-Make sure the grounds are looking good
If the above fails, the next thing we want to try is to reset the ECM of the truck.
To do this:
-Remove all battery cables from the batteries.
-Turn the key to the run position
-Wait for about 20 minutes
-Hook everything back up and attempt to program with your Smarty again
This will drain the capacitors in the ECM, which allows it to reset. This can help get the truck running again if it is currently in a no-start condition.
Past the above steps, we may need to create a stock flash to load through the Smarty (recovery software). You will need to submit a ticket or email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain one.
These mean that the ECM isn't responding to the start of the Smarty programming phase.
These mean that the ECM sent the wrong communication to the Smarty
For all of these, the steps in this guide generally take care of the problem. Feel free to contact us if this doesn't work or you need further help with your Smarty tuner.
