HP Tuners uses a credit-based licensing system. Credits are used as currency to purchase licenses for the different modules in a vehicle. Licensing a module gives you the ability to tune it. The number of credits necessary to purchase a license varies depending on the vehicle. Many vehicles are 2 credits for licensing the ECM/PCM, and may have additional options such as a TCM, FICM, or CCM. You can find a complete list of supported vehicles and credit cost on our supported vehicle page here.
Vehicle licenses are tied to the VIN, PCM OS, and PCM Serial Number. If those values don’t change, the vehicle will remain licensed on that interface and can be tuned indefinitely. One interface can store thousands of licenses and can be used to tune all the vehicles we support. Once you purchase an MPVI2 you can read, edit, and save files without purchasing credits. You don’t have to license a module until you are ready to write a new file to the vehicle. The MPVI2 also offers the ability to tune remotely by sending a tune file via email.
To activate Universal Credits for your MPVI2;
1. Download and install the latest version of VCM Suite here.
2. Connect your MPVI2 to your laptop/PC.
3. While connected to the internet, load VCM Editor and select HELP, then RESYNC INTERFACE.
Reminder, you must be connected to the internet as this process will also update your MPVI2 firmware to the latest version.
