    So the one circled is relay 59 (active exhaust). See how it’s turned 180 degrees? Are you saying that I need to turn it 180 degrees and reinsert? All of the others are going the same way... E3086287-9D50-46B3-B4C0-0BFC4BEC703E.jpeg

    I didn't have that issue. I just installed mufflers, changed the programming in forscan and it worked.

    Is your 59 relay seemingly reversed like mine? 2018 or 2019?

    Not yet. Lol. I’m chicken. I’d rather someone kindly check there’s before I do that.

    IDK kind of inconclusive. Mine seem to be facing the opposite way, and that particular relay is facing the same as yours.

    Are you talking about relay number 59?

    Interesting...my car has the plug in the back, but no relay is installed :(

    I guess I hit the “no AE for you” stop. Glad I haven’t invested any money yet.

    What exactly do you mean by this? Mine is a late 2018 model, and mine only works intermittently. I got new wiring harnesses for it, and it's still being buggy

    I flipped the relay. No change. Still no working AE. All brand new parts and forscan stuff is done. I get the exhaust modes in the dash. They just have no impact in the valve. Valve stays open.

    I don't know if you mentioned it, but did you check that the fuse was present?

    Yes. Fuse is present and not blown. Really bummed at the moment.

    Is the dash giving any error messages like active exhaust not available? Do you get the active exhaust menu?

    It is not. I have the exhaust mode options, but no error. I also took a multimeter and checked the plug and am getting power so I have no idea what the problem is. Maybe the 2019 has a different configuration in forscan?

    The programming was different between the digital dash and the analog dash. Just throwing it out there but you did the programming correctly? I can't see them changing it for the 2019 model year but anything is possible. The curious part is, when I did the programming and had not installed the mufflers, I was getting an error message. I would think if there was a problem with your system, an error message would pop up like guys who had shorts in the wiring that needed repair.

    This was my thoughts as well. I went over the programming 3 times.
    This was my thoughts as well. I did go over the programming 3 times. See attached.

    The one thing I find interesting is that some folks display the 10-01 line as 2 sets (XXXX-XXXX), and mine shows 3 sets. Not sure if that matters or if that is just they way they are showing it and it not mean anything at all.Capture.PNG

    Yes those are the same changes I made. You have the analog dash?

    I just looked up the programming. Digital dash requires both the changes you made and analog has a single code change. You seem to have done it correctly. Has to be something simple getting overlooked
