    Car may have already been chipped, how do I know and what do I do?!

    Hi all,

    I was due to have my A3 chipped by Simon at Upsolute on Sat, being a later car it was going to be done with the serial port. For some reason the lap top could not read the file on the ecu, kept saying turn ingnition on but was already on, so it appears it may have been chipped or re-mapped before. Being a one owner car I contacted the person I bought it from but he is adamant that it has not been touched.

    The car drives as standard, Simon drove it and agreed with this. So it would seem if it has been chipped, it has then been put back into valet mode or standard. The car is punchy but not fast as such, hitting 60 in 7.8 secs, so about right really.

    Worst case scenario it will have to be chipped by removing ECU, annoyingly it has a bracket holding it down that they dont usually have, grrrr!


    I just wondered if anyone else has experienced anything similar and what they did?!?

    Cheers

    Dave
