    Whistle tune on start ups

    I have recently noticed the last few days that when I start my truck it is starting with the whistle tune on.

    I have only ran the whistle tune a couple of times.

    I run the 12V tune more often but typically just have it on normal and if I do ever run any of the rt sound tunes I only use the send only once.

    Any ideas why it is deciding to run the whistle tune?

    Sure it’s the tune and not because it’s cold?

    Mine whistles just like the tune with engine brake on when its cold.

    Once coolant reaches 170 it stops the whistle.

    It helps warm it up.

    Has it been cold where you live?

    It will sound like that until after it warms up.

    We have just started having a lite frost in the mornings.

    I have just recently started hearing a high pitched whistle on startup while idling in the driveway.

    So far it only does it when cold and I have left the exhaust brake turned on.

    Try starting with the exhaust brake off.

    That's normal warmup mode.

    The turbo will close up to hold heat back into the engine to aid in warming up faster.

    It will sound like a jet when it happens.

    The warmup mode will go away once you either press the throttle or the coolant temp gets warm enough.

    You can also disable it by leaving the exhaust brake button set to off.

    Mine does the same and I don’t even have the sound tunes.

    Sounds damn sexy though when it does it.
