Jet 180 thermostat?
 
Ok so I put a jet 180 thermostat on my 07 6.1 because my check engine light came on and it thru the code for the thermostat.. It already had a 180 thermostat on it, just wondering what is the digital suppose to read? 180? Cuz mine is reading about 200-203 right now.:confused::confused:

I take it you didn't adjust the fan parameters as your check engine light is probably for your vehicle taking too long to heat up. Also your temp is hovering around 200-203 as those are the temps when the stock fan settings make them kick on.

You need a predator or trinity to do it

Turn on Predator and go to the Performance Tunes line.

Agree to the disclaimer

Press the Custom Tune line (not sure on the Diablo Canned Tunes?)

Select the tune that you prefer (if you have more than 1 tune saved).

Go to the Modify Tune line.

Agree to disclaimer

Then select Modify Parameters.

Now you need to look for the "Cooling Fans AC Off" line.

Now you will see 6 sublines.
170* Setting 180* Setting (first number is for the 170 second is for the 180)

High MPH HS Fan On


184.xx -170 stat / 195.xx-180 stat

LS


166.xx -170 stat / 178.xx-180 stat

MS


175.xx-170 stat / 185.xx-180 stat

Low MPH HS Fan


184.xx-170 stat / 195.xx-180 stat

LS


166.xx-170 stat / 178.xx-180 stat

MS


184.xx-170 stat / 195.xx-180 stat

Once done with the above, exit back to the list of parameters you want to modify and go down one line to the,

Cooling Fans AC On line. There will only be 3 sublines to do here:

HS Fan On


184.xx -170 stat / 195.xx-180 stat

LS


166.xx-170 stat / 178.xx-180 stat

MS


184.xx-170 stat / 195.xx-180 stat

Exit out and install tune.
