    P1000 means your computer has not completed it's monitored testing. Drive for a few days, clear the code, and you should be okay.

    I think I had that same code before. From what I remember it doesnt hurt anything. But it does indicate an issue with your ECU not being able to gather all the data it needs. Which I think is like EGR, O2s, ect.

    Your tune will still upload fine. Usually you get that code whenever you had the battery disconnected for a while.
