Out of curiosity why did you start another thread about it? Not being rude... Just asking

I just feel that if A thread has been open for a day or two it loses a little steam, and also by naming it "more LiveWire TS problems" it might get noticed by someone having problems with theirs. I've been on this forum for a little while but I am by no means a pro ha ha. If anyone has any tips or suggestions on how to use the forum better I will gladly listen with open ears

I know I have told them about this problem, so has charlie (peixino). I know the apple iPhone app/monitor Dashboss can read all the parameters properly... Way more than the crappy ol' TS can. I am not too impressed with the livewire ts, the screen sucks and it doesn't read as many Pid's as other options... Like edge. I would do Dashboss if I had a iPhone, if not I might do scan gauge, but I wouldn't buy a ts again.

I feel the same way I should have went with a CTS and the handheld SCT programmer this TS is the second one I've had it replaced already due to a no power up issue and to make it worse it had my stock tune file so I couldn't retrieve it had to deal with emailing back-and-forth with SCT to finally get a stock file back. Not to mention the problem I had with my pyrometer probe not working correctly got it replaced but still feel it's not reading the correct temp

Just wanted to chime in here. I have had my Livewire TS since November and I have the same issues and more.

My exhaust back pressure is reading 47 psi with key on engine off.

units for boost are not correct, when I have it in PSI they are way off. Seems that when I put it in kPa they read what they should if it was in PSI.

My boost signal constantly maxes out causing me to have to keep resetting my max/mins.

Unfortunately the retailer I purchased it from (will withhold the name now because I have had no problems with them until now) will not take it back unless I take a 10% restock fee which I feel is BS because it was not working from the beginning. Also, when it was in service to replace a screen at SCT they said they would investigate and they did NOTHING.

Now the retailer I purchased it from keeps telling me that everyone else is having the same problems and the issue is on SCT. Has anyone had ANY resolution of these issues? This is garbage and very annoying to say the least, I would never purchase this garbage again.
