I little birdy told me. :D

I actually saw the prototype of this at EJS last year. At the time it was going to be 99 bucks and only did about half the stuff it will now. It's a very cool piece. It's amazing what you can do with a few dip switches.

There have been a couple pre-production prototypes we've used, and guess what....they work! :) (surprised?)

Great option for speedo calibration and a bunch of other random cool stuff, compared to the Hypertech calibrator or similar. Cheaper too, which is appealing to me.

Yeah, they do some seriously cool stuff, like turning off the stupid blinking disco light (I have an antirock now), and loosening the setting for esp to make it less annoying....and helping you to perfectly center you steering wheel. And for 2008 and up guys, you can reprogram your TPMS to a lower setting.

So anybody know if you adjust the TPMS down to 0 psi if you can run without sensors in the tires? Or will the system still show an idiot light anyways because it's getting no signal from the sensors?

My guess is you'd get the idiot light as the computer is looking for an active signal of 0 psi or greater from the sensors. Keeping them loose in the Jeep probably wouldn't work all that well either as then they wouldn't be "active".

Thats my wild ass guess for the day. Your mileage may vary. :thefinger: :laughing:

OK....I got an e-mail from Mike at AEV this morning. I guess I snuck my order in while they were setting up the system and didn't even have the unit on the web site yet so it didn't charge me shipping (I found it via search :smokin:). I had to give them my credit card # again to pay the $7.89 shipping. They got a good laugh at how sneaky I was in getting my order in. They said it should be shipping next week.

With the price of the shipping, it is cheaper at Northridge 4x4 who sells it for $135. but just by a little...

It is locked to the VIN of the vehicle that it is used on - quite from AEV Dave on the AEV forum answering the multi vehicle question:

"The unit does lock to a VIN. It has a restore function that will restore the original settings to the first vehicle and then the unit unlocks and can be used in a second vehicle...so if you sell your Jeep and buy a new one, no issues".

Our pre-production unit wouldn't turn the TPMS off completely. AEV addressed this and all production units will turn the TPMS off when the threshold is set to 0 psi. This means you can run without the TPMS valve stems and the light/chime is gone. I returned my ProCal to AEV so they could reprogram it to production specs. TPMS is the Devil.

TPMS would be cool and useful if it showed actual pressures instead of the idiot light.

Chrysler should have used the "premium" TPMS system that's on other vehicles

I'll just be happy to set mine down a bit so I donít have to run 36 PSI on 37s just to get the stupid light off. I still like TPMS and this is all the control I need right now.

I agree with Alec here. Off road I can live with the idiot light for the hours that I'll be out there. On the street I'd like to know if my tires are under pressure. Having the means to adjust the threshold is the key to making this system useful vs. a PITA.

I also agree with Paragon, knowing the PSI in each tire would have been a lot more useful. Stupid Chrysler... :shaking:

From what I understand, this is just a speedo,daytime lights, blinker type reprogrammer. Set your dip switches, plug it in, let it do its thing, and unplug when its done. I'd think that you could run it independently of your hypertech.

That'd probably be a better question to ask AEV though.

01-23-2009, 11:04 PM
From what I read about Hypertech: It is vin number specific and program specific. Once it is plugged in it reads the program, then you can modify the setting to what you want. You can also go back to the stock setting. If you want to use it on a different vehicle it needs to be sent back to the manufacturer to have it reprogrammed. If the dealership flashes the module the Hypertech will not recognize the new setting and it will have to be sent back to hypertech to have it reprogrammed. So I do not think you can use the hypertech along with the AEV or any other programmer.

With the speedo calibrated it most definitely shifts better. The tranny uses vehicle speed to know when to shift so speedo accuracy is important. Engine performance and ESP are affected by the vehicle speed as well.

I think that to turn off the light you actually disable ASBS. So, no, I don't think you will be able to use it.

Was finally able to run the ProCal today. I updated tire size (34.25) and decreased the TPMS threshold to 28 psi. I figured that I'd try running at 32psi for a while and see how it works.

The speedo is fast by about 1.5 - 2 mph at 70 mph according to my GPS and 32psi is nice and smooth. :smokin:

One thing that I'm not happy about is that I couldn't get the idle adjustment feature to work. Has anyone else tried this yet?

One thing that I'm not happy about is that I couldn't get the idle adjustment feature to work. Has anyone else tried this yet?

Idle worked fine for me. Started jeep, left it in P, set e-brake, plugged in ProCal, used dimmer to adjust. Done.

Let us know how that works out for you......


Decided to sell the hypertech. Jeep is just fine without it.
but you can use both at the same time if you like.

What would be the benefit of using both?

The ProCal changes some options that the Hypertech does not. Such as TPMS, daytime running lights and a idle increase setting. The Hypertech on the other hand, depending on model, actually "tunes" the Jeeps on board computer to increase performance. Benefit could be that all the annoying crap that your jeep does can now be adjusted (add daytime running lights, disable TPMS if you have no wheel sensors, adjust speedo to tire size) and you might be able to squeeze a little more power out of it too.

I forgot to mention, I went out in the mud and snow wheeling this weekend. The ESP has never worked better. Evidently it is VERY important for the speedo to be properly calibrated to tire size for this system to work properly. DUH!!!!!!

OK I see the added benifits for things such as daytime, TPMS, idle...etc. I have the Hypertech Power Programmer and it already calibrates the speedometer. What settings did you use for the Hypertech and what did you use with the ProCal.

I have had my speedo calibrated to the proper tire size with the Hypertech but still have ESP issues:shaking:

Just trying to get more clarification. I have several of these coming in and I am tempted to try it but I already have the Hypertech loaded on the JK.

ESP going off is generally a sign that your steering wheel is not perfectly centered. The system is very picky about the steering wheel. There is a mode in the procal that can help you center the wheel.

That must be the case with mine, I'll need to check on that, cause when the wife drives the Jeep and the ESP goes off it scares the heck out of her...me I just thought it was that I was going too fast around a turn until It happened at slow speeds too..

I recieved mine this evening from OK 4wd, and immediately loaded it up. I was very hesitant but can honestly say, "wow" it works. My Jeep seems like a different rig. The speedo is spot on and the shifting is great. I took my wife for a ride and even she noticed (that says something). I will play with the other items tomorrow. Tonight I did tire size and gears and what a treat. Definately worth the money.

I installed a Aev Procal into a JK rubicon today, Its so easy a caveman can do it.

Features that I liked:

Change tire size and gear ratio's for proper shift points and to recalibrate the speedo

Daytime running lamps

Change the minimum (2008's-2009's) Tire preasure for the TPS

Turn signals blink 3 time for one click

My fav was the increased idle speed for winching or welding

I asked my service department about this install and how warranty will be affected and so far they said to uninstall if you nee warranty work. I know chrysler llc is not fond of aftermarket programmers. I sent an email to AEV to answer this question.

Mine is going in for warrantee work today (bad locker) and I didnít even think about uninstalling the programming. I guess Iíll find out if it matters soon although Iím not sure they will cover my locker with 4.13 gears and 37s etc. anyway.

Maybe, I just want to know that I am not pushing a product that will give me more headaches in the end. I sent an email to AEV re this and basically what I know is that this enables features that are already there, I am not sure if a star scan can pick this up?

Yes the Star Scan can pick this up. If you set the TPMS to 0 it logs a "vehicle misconfigured" code in the computer. This doesn't trip any trouble lights but is visible on the star scan. Solution, there is a return to factory settings function on the ProCal that you can do before taking the vehicle to the shop. Only problem is if you fry the computer, and can't do a reset. Then of course I'm sure your boned.

Another thing that might be helpful to remember (Bodyguy, stu and myself were talking about this yesterday) is that when setting your tire size, don't necessarily set it based on the fact that you bought 35" tires.

Your tire may not be a true 35, if you measure it might be a 34 and so on. Measure your tires and see what you actually have and play around with the programming to get a good setting and it might help.

I was actually looking at some 35s the other day for the heck of it, and even though they were called 35s by the tire manufacturer, they were actually 34" even....

So this is a great point...:beer:

Yeah but when I set the computer using the procal and GPS I had to program for a 36" tire. So the best method for setting tire size would be measuring the roll out.

UPDATE:I asked AEV about the procal and how it works. This is a enabler, basically a small version of the star scan the dealers have. The procal basicaly uses functions that already exist, however the star scan does not allow the dealer to make these changes as a AKA parental control. This should be transparent when you do have warranty work and should not have to remove it.

Im so confused LOL I know you should at very least enter the exact size .like what they call 35's are really 34.4's but should we be entering the exact measured height (with weight of vehicle) ?????

Enter the measured exact size, as it sits. The most accurate is the roll, measure and divide by pi. It's pretty close to the measured height though.

You can enter it within a 1/4 in accuracy..so 34.4 would be 34.5 :D

If you aren't too far from the PDX area, there's a dealer in Vancouver that has them in stock so no shipping charges. They ship as well www.dontfearthejeeper.com is the site, Tyler is the parts guy. Picked mine up there last week.

Yeah I got ours just before we left for Moab. I was able to kill that TPMS light since our sensors are gone in the wheels, and correcting the speedo helped with the ESP bugging out issues.

I can't comment on the shift points though. I set those wherever I please with a long shifter and a third pedal :D

Hate to drag this old dog back out, but I have a question re: use of the Procal that I can't find an answer to in the instructions. When you run a program, do you remove the module with the key ON, or after you cycle the key OFF? Common sense electronics work procedures seem to suggest the latter, but for some reason AEV leaves this last step out of the instructions. Anyone know?

Turn the key to "on" position with engine off and insert the Procal. After you hear the horn honk to confirm the change, remove Procal and turn key to off. If you have more things to set, just keep repeating this process for each setting.
