Centering Steering Wheel with Procal

Lookin' forward to some weekend projects. Has anyone used the AEV Procal to center their steering wheel yet? How does it work? Is there a light or chime that tells you when it's centered?

I actually just did mine yesterday. If you are inside the jeep, the high beam indicator comes on if centered. If is too far to the left the left blinker shows, and if too far to the right the right blinker shows. On the outside, if centered both the left and right blinker are illuminated. If too far to the left, then that blinker illuminates and vice versa for the right.

as far as what I have done.... I have disabled my tpms, reprogrammed my tire size, and enabled daytime running lights.

Some of the other features here is what aev website says...

Large tire recalibration (Restores the vehicle's speedometer/odometer accuracy following the installation of larger-than-stock tires)
Axle gear ratio recalibration (Resets automatic transmission shift points to maximize the benefits of an axle gear ratio change)
Tire Pressure Monitoring System recalibration

Note: Lowering a vehicle's tire pressure below that specified by the vehicle/tire manufacturer may create unsafe handling characteristics. AEV assumes no responsibility for a vehicle's handling characteristics or the safety of the vehicle's occupants.
Daytime running lamp activation/deactivation, and lamp location selection
One-touch turn signal activation/deactivation
Engine idle speed options (Improves winch performance and battery charging capabilities by temporarily increasing engine idle RPM)
Steering wheel centering (Provides for spot-on steering alignment)
Clears Engine Diagnostic Codes

Don't forget enabling / disabling the electronic swaybar. I just disabled mine the other day after selling it. Good tool!

Just complete my first DIY 3" lift on my JKU! I need a drink

Takes a shop one day, took me a week! Hour-here, hour-there after work and getting the wife's honey-dos out of the way.

I plugged my ProCal in with the ignition on, engine off and the high beam indicator came on immediately. Head-lights outside were not on and I didn't see any turn-signal indicators on ... inside or out. Prior to this, I drove around making several steering wheel adjustments. So now I'm using the ProCal to verify my handy work.

When I moved the turn-signal lever the jeep beeped twice. Does this mean the steering is centered from the computers point of view?

Thanks for any responses.

Just did mine this past weekend with the procal. I had engine running when I made the adjustments. had my 10yr old tell me when the high beam indicator lit up. Most of the procal functions are done with just the key on. I believe the engine has to be running to center the wheel and raise the idle.
