    Chip Program \"Falling Off\"

    Ive got the APR switchable set up with the 3 progams on my S3 and was wondering if it was possible for the settings to "fall off"?

    What I mean is for a few days now iv'e noticed a drop in performance, the car just does not really bite and pull away hard anymore, plus the turbo went a lot quieter, it feels like it was when it was standard.

    Iv'e changed the programs over a few times and given it a good seeing to around the streets and everything seems normal again, the turbo is noisier and it pulls away like a steam train again!

    Has anyone had any experience of this? It seems as if it has reverted back to standard mode by itself! I certainly didn't change it and no-one else has driven it.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Re: Chip Program \"Falling Off\"

    If the ECU is reset the APR chip will revert to program1, usually stock and if you have security lockout, that will be enabled.

    ECU may be reset by low battery charge as well as the usual culprits whilst in for a service etc.
