GENERAL PREPARATION
1. Turn OFF all power draining accessories; Radio, Cell Phone chargers, A/C, etc.
2. Turn your headlights off when programming your vehicle for added safety against battery failure. See your
owner’s manual for vehicle specific information regarding your headlights.
3. Your vehicle may be equipped with daytime running lights and/or sensors that turn the headlights on
automatically while the ignition is on. Please check your owner’s manual for the proper procedure on
temporarily disabling these lights to eliminate this extra drain on your battery during the programming
process. This is sometimes done by pressing the “dome override” button two to four times or in the case of
automatic headlights turning the headlight switch to the left.
4. Temporarily disable OnStar (If equipped).
To help prevent any disruption of the programming procedure you will need to temporarily disable the OnStar
sytem in your vehiccle. To accomplish this you will need to remove one or more fuse(s) associated with the
OnStar system. The fuse panel willl be located under the hood on the driver’s side behind the battery.
When the OnStar system is disabled, the indicator light (on the dash or rearview mirror) will not be
lit. Double check to make sure that this light does not come on while the key is in the ON position
(engine not running).
FOR 5.0, 5.7, 7.4L Applications:
1. The On star system is located behind the glove compartment of your vehicle. To gain access
to the unit open the glove compartment up. Once you have removed the strap the entire glove
compartment can be removed and set aside for better access to the On Star unit..
2. The On Star plug is located behind the glove compartment area, we will need to unplug this unit
to disable the On Star functions. There is a large plug behind a silver box. In most cases this plug
is partially wrapped in grey foam. Once you have located this connector unplug it from the On Star
Box. Verify that the On Star light is OFF before you proceed with the programming.
FOR 4.3L Applications:
1. The On Star system is located in the back of the vehicle (on the passenger side) under an interior
cover. The cover is a plastic panel with a release clip, to remove the cover pull the clip and swing
the cover out and remove it.
2. There is an On Star control unit located under the cover that you just removed, to disable the On
Star unit unplug the connector by squeezing the locking clips on either side of the connector and
unplugging the unit. Verify that the On Star light is OFF before you proceed with the programming.
AFTER PROGRAMMING YOUR VEHICLE:
After you have programmed your vehicle with the JET Performance Programmer, plug the On Star
connector that you removed back into the On Star unit and reinstall the glove compartment or
interior panels that you previously removed.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS OVERVIEW
Your vehicle has an onboard computer that controls the engine and transmission. The
JET programmer reprograms your factory computer according to your specifications
with JET Performance Products Tuning.
To reprogram your vehicle’s computer, simply plug the programmer cable into the
vehicle’s diagnostic connector, located under the dash panel on the driver’s side. Set
the parking brake. Next, turn the ignition key to RUN but do not start the engine. It will
then identify your vehicle and ask a series of questions on its LCD screen.
When completed, turn the key to OFF and disconnect the cable from the diagnostic
connector. Now you’re “Engineered for Power”.
JET Performance Product’s tuning can be stored in only one vehicle. When you install
JET Performance Product’s tuning program into your vehicle, the programmer reads
and stores your vehicle’s factory programming. You can use the Programmer to restore
your stock programming if it should ever become necessary.
You may also reconnect your programmer at any time to modify the programming.
Simply reconnect the JET Performance programmer, answer the necessary questions,
and program your vehicle.

NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with traction control, exceeding 34 inch
tire sizes may cause the traction control to not work correctly. In ALL
vehicles : Some tire sizes, depending on what gear is in the vehicle, may

If you had to previously disable your On Star system, reinstall the fuses that you removed to the correct locations.
Start the vehicle and verify that the service engine light is NOT on. If your vehicle will not start, see below for details on what to do if your vehicle won’t start after programming.
NOTE: Your vehicle may run poorly for the first 10-15 minutes after
programming, poor idle quality will be the most noticeable issue. This will go away in a short period of time and is nothing to be concerned about.
What To Do If Your Vehicle Won’t Start After Programming
In some vehicles with the Vehicle Anti-Theft System (VATS), the programming process will set an error in
the VATS module which will prevent vehicle from starting. To clear this error disconnect the ground
(-) cable from your battery for one half hour. Then re-connect the ground cable to the battery and start the
vehicle.

JET SCAN TOOL INSTRUCTIONS
The JET Performance Programmer also functions as a Scan Tool for GM OBDII equipped vehicles. This allows the user to read and clear any stored data trouble codes in the system and monitor 15 different outputs
from the vehicle.(For a list of OBDII DTC codes please go to www.jetchip.com under the installation instructions section).
Please NOTE: The Scan Tool included in the JET Performance Programmer is included as a convenience only. The interpretation of these codes and there effects are best left to an experienced automotive technician. The JET technical department WILL NOT help you interpret or diagnose any codes, please see your local dealer or technician.
Connecting the JET Programmer Scan Tool:
1. Locate the Data Link Connector (DLC) under the driver’s side of the dash panel.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE TAKING
YOUR VEHICLE IN FOR SERVICE
If a problem occurs that may require you to take your vehicle to a
mechanic or dealership for service, first remove the JET Program and program back to stock. If the problem goes away when you remove the JET
Performance Product, call JET and we will troubleshoot the product. However, if returning to stock does not cure your problem, there is nothing wrong
with your JET Performance Product and you will need to have your vehicle
serviced.
Anytime a diagnostic machine is to be used, the vehicle must be
back to stock. Diagnostic machines expect to find the original stock program
and often cannot correctly analyze the problem if other devices are installed.
Failure to reinstall your system back to stock can result in unnecessary and
costly repairs not covered by JET. Before you have any work done on the vehicle that you feel may have been related to the JET Programmer, please call
JET at 714-848-5515.
