Dont laugh @ me but im still looking at possibly chipping my ONE and the amd one-click is favorite on the ease of use side. But has it still got the limp mode bug and what is LIMP MODE and how do you clear it is it a trip to the dealers?
Hi Mark - doing a forum search shud bring up all the gen I'ved posted here before and to answer your questions:
LIMP MODE is when the car's ECU (engine management computer) thinks there's something wrong so decides to cut the engine in order to protect itself .... after this happens it's necessary to switch the ignition off and on, a yellow warning light (looks like an engine) will be on in the centre speedo area and the car may feel a little down on power for 10 miles or so - no need to go to the dealers
as for the OneClick - if you hold the car on the rev limit for 'too long' (5 or more seconds ish) when accelerating from rest or by accident if you muck up a gear change etc - on some builds you can find the limp mode is triggered .... but as max oomph is at 6250rpm and the rev limit's at c.7000 and it aint gona do the car any good, you dont wanna be holding it at that high rpm anyway .... have spoken to the guy who writes the modified map software for the OneClick / Racing X Dual System (essentially the same thing) as well as AmD etc at length and because it doesnt happen all the time on all cars noone knows exactly what causes it - if you're at all concerned, go for the Superchip Stage 2
hope that helps, ... if so rep's always appreciated
Glad to help - reps apparently broken at the mo - look fwd to seeing some pics of your car ... you can add a gallery by clicking on the Galleries header then Personal and in the top right choose Create & Manage - uploading pics from your computer is easy if u have a digital camera or a scanner
The thing is, max power is at 6250 or whatever, but you still need to take it further, so when you change up to a higher ratio, your nearer optimum power again, rather than changing at max power, where you get dumped at low rpm again.
