Arrow Tuned ...shut off the car and wont start

hey guy's i need to know if any one else had this problem before


i had the car tuned and every thing was going great ..........keep in mind that this is the second time we tuned the car and same thing


we tuned it shut the car off and for some reason it wont start back up we burned everything to the M.S and for some odd ball reason it wont save and it wont let us put the tune back like its corrupted...

the tuner thinks that the cpu chip isn't working properly plz give info

thanks in advance

Is it trying to crank? Make sure your getting spark before you go any further. Also, make sure if you use MLV to tune that it does NOT tune for RPM for idle.

so when he opens MT he can connect just fine and see the maps. but if he goes to file > open to load one you've saved, it does what?

have no clue. never seen it. gotta know what the error message is. Could be the tuner's CPU, could be corrupt firmware.

easiest thing would be to properly reflash the firmware.

You have to help us help you. Few things.

Pics of the error messages. We don't know what they are, so we can't really help you.

Grammar. I've told you this before. I won't help you if you refuse to follow basic grammar rules because reading your **** gives me a headache.

Specs on MS, car, mods, etc. Post your msq. etc. More info. We don't know ****. It's like you said "hey guys, I got a car, red, 4 wheels, and has MS and it's not working, any ideas?????" Help us help you.

my be a dumb thing to say but does the ecm have constant 12v when the car is shut down. like a clock you can set the time but when you shut it down it resets because it doesnt have constant power to save a tune. just throwing out ideas let me know how things are going

^^ that wouldn't make any sense because if your batteries lost power it would do that same thing the cpu chip must be bad or some thing else

The MS doesn't need constant power to maintain the MSQ.
