I bought a edge evolution tuner the plug in odbII type and it wouldn't even recignize when i had my key on from the get go. Long story short called edge went through all the crap they told me to do (check fuses, make sure theres not a chip in the pcm, brake controller, aftermarket alarm "which both i do have on the truck", and so on) edge told me to return the tuner for another one. I returned it cause the parts house didn't have another. First of any comments on the edge? I hear from a lot of people the way to go is a superchips 1705, and the edge is junk and causes more problems than anything. Got my hands on a 1705 but haven't had a chance to hook it up. Im afraid i may have the same problem with it when i do. My odbII port is in the center part of the dash undernieth. ANY TIPS ON THINGS TO CHECK IF I DO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE SUPERCHIPS 1705? ALSO ANY OTHER PROBLEMS ANYONES HAD WITH INSTALLING/UNINSTALLING? THANKS TO EVERYONE IN ADVANCE.

The cigarette lighter fuse is also for the OBDII port. The tech at Edge may have been on to something if your cigarette lighter does not work. Check it out and see if it is working.

Yeah the cig lighter works along with the separate power point. i couldnt find any bad fuses edge had me take out the fuses for the alarm and the brake contorler but that made no difference either.

keyless entry?

The alarm i have has keyless entry and i missed pulling that fuse. Maybe that has something to do with why the pcm wouldn't read the key as being on ?

superchips 1705

Well got time to hook my 1705 up today and just as i suspected it did about the same thing the edge did i got a (check connections) (error code 16 call superchips). I'm thinking of starting by having my pcm reflashed superchips said thats more than likely what i need to do. Any one else have a simalar problem? mines a 97 so i though it would be obdII compatable but mayme not

Was able to get the pcm recovered with luck from the ford garage after all this i still had to pay 29.99+ shipping to send it back to superchips to be reset. I'll be selling it as soon as i get it back. Anyone interested?
