BANKS warrants to the original
PURCHASER that any parts purchased
shall be free from defects in material
and workmanship.
A defect is defined as a condition that
would render the Product inoperable.
This warranty does not cover
deterioration of plating, paint, or any
other coating. Due to the subjective
nature of sound BANKS does not
warrant for sound. BANKS liability is
limited to the repair or replacement,
at BANKS’ option, of any warrantable
Product returned prepaid with a
complete service history and proof of
purchase to the factory. A valid proof of
purchase is defined as a legible dated
bill of sale from an authorized dealer.
Repaired or replaced Product will
be returned to the customer freight
collect. If a replacement Product is
not reasonably available BANKS will
have the option to either replace the
Product with a substantially similar
Product or refund a pro-rated amount
of the original purchase price for
that specific Product. Any repaired
or replacement BANKS Product will
conform to the warranty for the
unexpired duration of the warranty
period for the original, nonconforming
Product. Accepted warranty units
which have been replaced become
the sole property of BANKS. All BANKS
Products are subject to the provisions
stated herein regardless of mileage.
Product returned for warranty
determination must be accompanied
by a Return Material Authorization
(RMA) number obtained in advance
from a BANKS customer service
representative. BANKS Is not
97276 v.2.0

responsible for return freight on any
delivery refused for not having an
RMA number. BANKS will be the final
authority on all warranty decisions.
This warranty shall not apply to any
unit which has been improperly
stored or installed; subjected to
misapplication, improper operating
conditions, used in race applications,
used for off-road purposes, involved
in accidents, subjected to neglect; or
which has been improperly repaired
or altered or otherwise mistreated or
improperly maintained by the owner
or his agent. This warranty is VOID for
any new products purchased through
auction websites.
Labor costs incurred by the
removal and replacement of a
BANKS Product, while performing
warranty work, will be the
responsibility of the vehicle
owner. In no case does the
obligation of BANKS exceed
the original purchase price of
the Product as indicated on the
original bill of sale. This Warranty
is non-transferable and coverage
applies for the BANKS Product
installed on the original vehicle
for the original purchaser of those
Products.

Section 3
Preparing Vehicle & Connecting Banks AutoMind
Programming Module to iQ
Follow the vehicle preparation steps
to ensure a complete program
installation. These steps must be
performed prior to installing the Banks
AutoMind Flash calibration.
Warning
• Failure to follow proper
instructions can result in a
damaged or disabled ECM (Engine
Control Module).
• Do not perform any operations
on Banks AutoMind Flash
Programming Module while vehicle
is running. The vehicle must be
parked and engine OFF.
Important! Before installing Banks
AutoMind Flash Calibration, make
sure your Banks iQ is updated to
the latest version. To update Banks
iQ Software
1. For Windows XP users, make sure
that microsoft ActiveSync is installed
on your computer and that you have an
active internet connection. For Windows
7 and Vista users, make sure that
Microsoft Mobile Device is installed on
your computer.
NOTE: If you do not have Microsoft
ActiveSync or Mobile Device visit
www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile or
visit Banks website for direct links and
detail update instruction at
www.bankspower.com/iqupdate.
2. Install the Banks iQ Update Utility on
your computer by visiting
www.BanksPower.com/Downloads.
3. Turn the Banks iQ on and allow it
to complete its booting process (about
a minute). In the ‘Environment Select’
menu press on the ‘Productivity’
Environment. Then press on ‘Desktop’
tab to open the Windows desktop. At
the desk top tap the “Start” button at
the bottom left of the screen. This will
display a dropdown menu. In this menu
tap “Suspend”. If this step is missed
the PC will not communicate with the
iQ. Then plug the Banks iQ into your PC
using the supplied USB cable.
Caution: The iQ must be in the
Windows desktop mode before
connecting the iQ to a PC. The iQ
will either ignore the connection or
register an error if the iQ is not in
the ’Desktop’ mode.
4. Start the Banks iQ Update Utility
and follow the on-screen directions
on your PC to update your Bank iQ
with the latest software updates.
For more detailed instruction to
update your Banks iQ please go to
www.bankspower.com/downloads
Precautions for Calibration
Process
The vehicles Batteries must be
fully charged and in good condition
before using the Banks AutoMind
Programming Module.
Note: Always turn off all auxiliary vehicle
systems or functions that might come
active while the key in the vehicle is in
the “ON” position. Locate the fuse box
and remove the fuses for the fuel pump
cooling fans and all auxiliary systems or
functions. Auxiliary systems/functions
draw power from the battery and can
cause the download/upload process to
take longer or freeze the process if the
battery charge is to low.
Familiarize yourself with use of Banks
iQ and navigating through its screens.
1. Do not activate any electrical
accessories while installing the Banks
AutoMind Flash calibration. Ensure
that there are no electronic devices
wired or plugged into the vehicle that
can cause a substantial voltage drop,
which might be activated during the
installation process. Please contact
a Banks dealer if uncertain about
devices that are on your vehicle.
97276 v.2.0

2. Certain cellular phones or
radio equipment might also cause
interference, please remove or turn
such devices off.
3. Unless instructed in the installation
steps, never turn the ignition key
OFF while the Banks AutoMind
Programming Module is plugged into
the AutoMind Flash Connector.
Warning: Unplugging the
Banks AutoMind Flash
Programming Module while
uploading or downloading a
calibration can damage the
vehicles ECM.
4. Ensure that the factory “stock”
calibration is in the vehicle’s ECM before
installing the Banks AutoMind Flash
calibration. If you are uncertain if your
vehicle tuning is in stock condition then
have the vehicle’s ECM reflashed by
your vehicle’s make dealer.
Figure 1
8
97276 v.2.0
Note: Dealer re-flashes are the same
as stock factory calibration.
WARNING: The Banks AutoMind
calibration should NOT be installed
over a non-factory/aftermarket
performance tune, and except
in rare cases should not be used
in conjunction with other tuning
devices such as chips or plug in
modules of any kind.
Combining devices is done at
the user’s own risk
Connecting Banks AutoMind
Flash Programming Module
Locate the OBDII port where you
have plugged in the Banks Com-Link
Communication Bridge. Loosen the
harness, if previous secured under or
behind the dash, from the OBDII port
to the Banks Bridge Module, enough
to have easy access to the AutoMind
Flash connector. See Figure 1. Plug
the Banks AutoMind Flash Programming
Module to the AutoMind Flash connector
on the Banks Com-Link Communication
Bridge harness. See Figure 2.
Figure 2
Secure the wiring away from any pedals
or other moving components. Use cable
ties to secure the wiring under the dash.
Note: It is recommended (but not
absolutely necessary) to remove the
Banks AutoMind Flash Programming
Module after calibrating your vehicle.
Make sure to have access to the
AutoMind Flash Programming Module to
remove and reconnect if needed.
Turn the vehicle key to the on position
and allow the iQ to start up. If the iQ is
not in the ‘Mode Select’ menu already,
make your way to ‘Mode Select’ menu
by press the ‘iQ home’ icon. Navigate
by pressing the left or right of the
screen in the ‘Mode Select’ menu to
locate the ‘AutoMind Flash Program’
button. See Figure 3.
Note: The ‘AutoMind Flash Program’
button will only be active when the
AutoMind Flash Programming Module
is plugged in. It will be grayed out
when disconnected.
