I got my computer back last thrusday from atp with their stgiv chip socketed in. Since I still had to take the car across town to have the kit put on, i put the k04 chip in, but the car wouldnt start. No check engine light either. I called atp, and they told me to send it back so they could test it, now they tell me it has a short in it that they cant find. They are saying its probably because the pins for their socket are smaller than those for the k04 chip and it wasnt making a good connection. They said when i tried to start my car with a bad connection it shorted out. Has this happened to anyone else, or does anyone know anything bout these chips and what might cause this. They are sending me a "loaner", but i'm not sure if they are going to fix or replace mine or not.

Re: anyone else had computer quit after chipping? (tacurt)

Mine did that with an APR chip. Just decided it wouldn't start one day. Sent the ECU to APR and they returned it the next day. Car started fine. I think the socket was loose.
