I have a DP-Tuner and F5 mounted on my gauge pod. For the last month or so, it's had a random problem where sometimes when the truck starts up there are no numbers showing and the truck will only idle, try to drive it and it dies. If I wiggle the connector in the back of the F5, it will start working correctly. It also sometimes cuts out/resets going over bumps in the road (numbers will clear, then go in a circle before resetting). It will also sometimes wig out when I try to change from one tune to another and make all the warning lights on the dash come on. Any thoughts?

it is the connector at the gauge....

try putting a piece of tape on it tightly and if that dont work, you may have to talk to Jody about it.... you may need a new switch....

they replaced mine for the exact thing, early on design was a little flawed or what you can do is slightly bend one or two of the pins to hold the connection better, thats what I did to get me by for the short term but they said that it would be ok.


4cstr- I was just noting what Jody told me

Hmm, thanks for the info guys. I guess I'll call them and see what they say.

I see "SeeYa" read this thread but didn't respond?

Yes I did read it. I was also getting ready to go the doctor so I didn't have time to respond.

We can send another one to see if it elimates the issue. However if it is coming off the cable is pulled too tightly and needs some slack behind switch. This will prevent any tug on the back. I have had mine installed since last October and it has never cut out on me.

I am sure that whatever the problem is...it will be taken care of. I have one of the early units...installed October of '06...and have never had a problem.

Thanks, I'll check the slack on the cable and see if that's a problem.

I know I can just touch the cable connector lightly and it will cut the truck off momentarily.
