Superchips Sold....not returned to stock!

I am posting this in chit chat and not dirty laundry because i am giving the seller the benafit of the doubt!

a superchips flashpaq was sold to The Chad a friend of mine..he did not use it and i there by purchased it from him.. plugged it in earlier in the night and

Boom VIN LOCKED....here is the original sale thread...

https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showth...538#post812538

ive sent a text to The Chad to give him a heads up since seller does say he set it back to stock and im pretty sure The chad didnt

use it....and also a PM to the seller as well....hope in everyone's best interest to resolve this quickely as i

belive it is an honest mistake...thread is simply up to make aware of the

situation..and also to remind people if they sell a programmer to please return

it to stock

I sold one to egg white off my buddy's rig. I thought I had set it to stock but I missed the tpms sensor setting. Despite telling it to go to stock tune it didn't reset that. I ended up eating the 150 to get it reset for him.

31 jeeps in... still have issues

If you just set the tune back to stock i think it leaves any other settings they way they were (tpms,tire size, gears)

It says what's still installed upon startup. Check the last 8 of the VIN to make sure it's not chad's.

Same issue here. Fortunately I was only selling mine to my roommate (for his WK), so it was an easy fix (after googling to see WTF the problem was), but that really sucks for people selling/shipping to others.

Ya it sucks because even tho The Chad hadn't used it...we both kinda got "had" except I was one that figured it out...could easily be an easy mistake just waiting to see if I get a response from original seller..looks like he hasn't been on in about week tho..

As much as it sucks, it looks like we really need to make minimum requirements to post stuff in the for sale section. Something like 1 year site member and 250 posts as an example.

I've returned mine to stock a few times (dealership work) and it is ridiculous that that "set to stock" button you push, does NOT set EVERYTHING to stock. That should completely unlock the tuner. However the TMPS will keep it VIN locked, despite returning it "to stock calibrations".

It's a questionable/tacky move by the programmers at Superchips...figuring it's a $100 mistake per tuner...good money maker..

Hi,

First let me say that I think it is pretty crummy that the OP started this thread less than 10 minutes after sending me a PM (at 3 in the morning, no less).

I sold this programmer to another member almost 3 months ago. I shipped the controller within hours of receiving payment. I sold almost all of the aftermarket parts off my JK prior to trading it in on June 18th. I sold those parts through either this forum, JK-F, or Pirate. I have had nothing but positive feedback.

I know the programmer was returned to stock as detailed in the Superchips documentation. I am almost certain that the TPMS warning light was on prior to me trading the JK in.

I read nothing during the time I owned the programmer that discussed resetting the TPMS routine separately. The following is a link to the Superchips manual which discusses resetting the programmer so that it can be used on another vehicle:
http://www.superchips.com/LinkClick....o%3d&tabid=125 . There is nothing that discusses a separate reset. That link also includes discussion of the TPMS system, so it's not something that was hidden away.

I'm sorry the OP thinks I did him wrong. I go out of my way to do the right thing when it is my responsibility. If Superchips requires that a separate reset be done, and they have not published that information for owners to know, then I believe they need to make this problem right. 3 months is a long time to have something outside your control questioned, particularly when you can only say that you don't think the last owner installed the programmer. All I know is that the programmer indicated I returned the Jeep to stock when I last used it. (FWIW the programmer was set to 35s during the time that I ran it.)

I will contact Superchips to get conversation started regarding correcting this problem by them. I also hope to get the full story regarding the separate TPMS reset issue.

My biggest gripe with the OP is that he didn't give me an opportunity to respond to his PM. I haven't owned a JK for almost 3 months.... but, I still want to help resolve the problem. If I were like a lot of other folks, I would have just ignored the PM and this thread.

Jeff

I have emailed Superchips's technical support department. I will re-post when I receive a reply back.

I am gonna bet a secondary setting like TPMS was not set back to stock.

I went through this aggravation of thinking I had set mine back to stock so I could put it in my other JK at the time and it wouldn't let me.. took me a while to figure out the issue.

Its a common issue that has popped up here a few times before... though now that the sellers Jeep has been traded in there is not going to be any free fix for this one.

EDIT: and yeah.. might want to give the seller a chance to reply before making a thread 3 minutes later.

Moved to Dirty Laundry.

Woa..didnt intend to bash him..read my whole post geez..ya it was late but I figured most y'all wouldn't see it till today.. but let me make it clear again...so let's read the fine print boys n girls! I started the thread to offer up knowledge and to get a response from the seller..which it did
Seller responded and it"s being resolved. One valuable thing learned here was the TPMS (that I didn't know about) and the seller didnt either..but the thread and you guys brought it to light worth the the thread right there IMO... I did not intend to bash the seller that's why I mention that twice and I put it In chit chat..now as for keeping strange hours and moving on this quickly well I am guilty there...but a lynching I think ain't fair punishment for that!

Nah, bullshit. String him up!

Sounds like you're just a victim of circumstances on this one.

And now you have a programer that functions as a kickass paperweight. Papers? BOOM. They're not movin.

This is getting out of hand.


Guy sells superchips
the buyer never hooks it up. (supposedly)
Guy sells superchips
buyer hooks it up and it is no good

Sounds to me like the original seller got away with it.
