Default Need help with BD tuning

Hoping someone can help. I just installed BD tune. The problem is when i go back and check the settings the mds is still on. I disable it each time but it keeps showing enabled. Also test drove it and it was coming on. What am I missing? Thanks.

When I disable mds with BD my abs light comes on and another dash light but dont remember what. mds does disable but the dash light is bothersome/annoying to me......I have just been putting her in 6th to disable mds for now

Did you update your BD to the lastest FW on your PC? I bought my BD from discount auto performance 3 weeks ago and it had the latest FW instlled out of box. Called BD to double check.....heard their customer service is great but the lady didnt sound so friendly to me in our 1 minute phone convo while i was asking a few simple friendly questions!!

I did the updates but it said there weren't any. Been out driving and the trans seems the same as stock. I can't figure out any of this. The tuner says the tune is complete but nothing is different than stock.

Thanks. But on the bullydog under view settings it says mds is enabled but the other changes I made are still good. I start over and hit disable mds every time and it keeps saying mds is enabled.

Yes, exactly what sledlvr said. You have to call them for the most up to date tune. I did that last week and my truck is running much better now and a few functions that weren't working now are. Now I'm only having a problem with the tranny temp display.

My updated software version is 3.1.4.2 A01A. You're probably only at 1. Something doing it online.

I have (3.1.4.2 B011) , it cured the foglight on hi, and the trans temp issue , it also shuts off the ESC and ABS when you disable traction control now
