: Predator Programmer is this normal?

Ok.. so maybe I overlooked ti during the first installation but i went outside just now to reinstall the predator programmer (battery died and wasnt sure if it lost the programming) and i noticed the dash read out "Reduced Engine Power".. just wondering if this is normal as i thought the programmers were meant to increase power.. also i was not sure if it was normal or not but i was able to upload the performance tune like 3 times in a row.. shouldnt the programmer know that the performance tune is already programmed?

I have a predator programmer also. The first time i plugged mine in it backed up the factory tune first then it will let you upload a custom tune. The next time plugging the programmer in it will ask you if you want a different tune modify a tune or restore the factory tune. You need to make sure your truck battery is good and your engine off key to on position and the onstar fuse unplugged then plug in the programmer. Hope this helps
