cant tune WTH

ok now I cant get a tune back into my truck. Its telling me "Error check connection". Okay did that about a dozen times now. What else should I look for or what should I do. I have heard that I should disconnect my batteries and that might work?




I think Im done with Superchips. The only reason I have this tuner is that it came with the truck when I bought it. What tuner should I get?

Check your cigarette lighter fuse. It is also the OBDII port fuse.

But yes

I like Tony Wildman. 6 position chip, you can have 6 tunes (custom for your truck), all loaded on the chip. Switch tunes as fast as you can turn the switch. On the fly. Any of the tuners on this site will do a good job for you.

If your going to get a custom tuned chip and want to get the chip cheap and pay whatever it cost for custom tunes youll definatly need a TS style chip as almost ever tuner uses them and Ebay has a greay deal on them thats what I did and was brand new came with standard ts tunes on it and when I bought my injectors from swamps I got swamps tunes put on it for free because I bought my injectors from them. so in the end I came out like close to 300 dollars cheaper than what most people pay. for brand new chip with swamps tuning

Re: cant tune WTH

More and more people will have this issue with the OBS trucks as time goes by. I don't recommend reflashing OBS trucks ever unless it is a completely reman computer. At ten years of age the components in the PCM start allowing the clock speeds to vary and when that happens you will get flash failures.

In most cases you can run a chip on a "failed" flash computer and resume normal operation.

I unhooked the batteries for about 10mins and tried again and it took the tune, I still will look into a better tune cuz this Superchip SUCKS...
