Still running lean.

So i bought the sct flash tuner from a.m. loaded all 3 tunes 1 by 1 (really fun b.t.w if you have an auto this is a must) drove about 20 min on each and i am still throwing lean codes. wtf i thought that took care of this i have o/r selet up and was under the impression i was throwing that because of the absence of the cats but when i filled out that tune form for bama i put o/r set up i have no vac leaks i can hear and the car runs fine i cleaned the m.a.f and still the same thing i know i can clear it but i wanna know why its running lean and solve the prob instead of clearing that code all the time and acting like theres no problem any help is appreciated thanks again

Did you try doing your own little tune and turning the rear o2 sensors off? Bama is good but sometimes they might overlook things and forgot to write that up in the tune.

I'm not certain which tuner you have, but with mine it asks to make adjustments > Keep prev options/edit options/cancel > edit options > rear 02s off.

I haven't messed with my tuner in a few months so thats a rough memory I have of how the list went. Just play around with your tuner and explore the options and you'll eventually find it.

It will not, however, be with the option of loading performance tunes.

I'm glad you got it figured it out! You can always email Bama since they didn't write the file correctly and I'm sure they'll re-write it for you.
