egt reading high on sct livewire

Changed tunes yesterday on my sct livewire ts and once it finished I fired the truck up and egt was reading 31-32000 degrees. Checked make sure the settings hadn't changed and even went back to the tune is was running and no luck. I would think with that high of reading that it would be a faulty probe but everything was working fine just before I changed tunes. Anyone experience something like this?

I use to run the egt prob with livewire and I had the same thing happen to me. I had stock turbo and stock injectors and it said my cursing egts were like 1300. The prob is the problem

It was working as fine as it could I guess until I changed the tune I was running. I have not really been a fan of how well this function worked on the livewire compared to the cts though. Temp seemed to always bounce around too much and I never considered it 100% accurate.

I agree on a restart... unplug and restart. Unless something is loose under the dash it will likely sync back up.

This is one of the many "quirks" I talk about with mine.
