Hey all, I have a CVT 23 Integra (A-spec). I wanted to see if any of you have gotten the hondata flashpro and have had the same issue as me. When flashing any of the tunes hondata has for the car the "brake system" light comes on and the "adaptive cruise control" light comes on, thus no cruise control- which is pretty annoying. The brakes don't feel different. Hondata is working with me on this but they are pretty slow on getting back to me. I'll let you know what they say but hopefully someone here knows something. the car is stock no parts added.

things I've tested: Reflashed back from stock. Reflashed a different tune, driven over 70 miles; they stay on. confirmed the tune was applied to the car in the correct manner.

It's what the car needed from the factory. Baring Hondata can help me clear these codes and they stay off it is worth it in my opinion. Hondata has 3 tunes on the flashpro for the CVT:
-base tune.
-250 Torque Tune (HP unknown but I asked and over the phone they said ~230HP)
-then the Carb legal version ^ (pending)
You can do the flex fuel kit from PRL and select a box in Hondata that lets you run the mixed fuel (hondata said stay on the 250 torque Tune. (Im saying this being you won't find this information anywhere, I had to call a bunch of times to find this stuff out.) I'm doing this for you guys! haha. Personally, I want to keep my car clear of after market parts. I'm happy with just the tune from hondata, but if you want to gain more power and risk the engine blow up- have fun. :)
the 250 Torque is safe and brings the car alive. You can tell it isn't stressing the engine. Even in Normal mode the car has enough torque now to merge on the highway or overtake with better confidence. Sport mode is even better for the brief moments where you hit a back road and need a smile. Not like giggling like a little girl... but it will make you smile.
I used to own a wrx that made 298HP that would do 0-60 in 5.6 seconds.....Even with this tune, the integra is not that car. The best advice I can give is don't expect the car to go from Zero to Hero with this tune. However, for me, I had the cash to invest in the $800 unit, and I am loving everything about this car (except the power) so to make the car Everything it needs to be my daily driver dream car, then Yes, the tune is 100% worth it. But don't complain or want more out of this car. Respect the 250lb torque tune and be happy.

@A-Spec
My first contact with them on the issue was on Tuesday, Via phone call. I sent them a follow-up email when the lights didn't go off. I am not expecting a call/email back till next week. they just asked me to send over some pictures of the dash. They did not offer any problem solving solutions yet. I will update the forum as they give me more info as I can't imagine I will be the only person this happens to. My guess is that the cruise control is not enabled right now only because of the brake system light. if the brakes throw a code so does the adaptive cruise control as it would rely on the brakes for automatic braking. So that's probably a symptom of the brake system light. Why would the brake system be having an issue? Idk. but I tried turning off traction control, auto brake hold, auto start/stop, pretty much any button in the car I could mess with I did and no resolve. I have done about 2 hours of driving with the tune and lights on and the check engine light does come on at the time of the tune however always goes away about 30 minutes later. These other two lights are persistent though.

I have an update for you all. I posed the issue in their official forum and they knew the solution right away. In the Flash Pro Manager software Go to the top drop down tab and click the "ONLINE" TAB. Select the OBDII Diagnostics Go to the Diagnostics tab of the OBDII Diagnostics window. Click on refresh first, then clear DTCs. It did clear the codes that were disabling my brake system and adaptive cruise control. I drove the car around and they stayed off. I hope they stay off permanently. I'll report back in a week or two either way.
