TW tunes questions

Ok so i just got my chip installed this evening and ive got to say i am very impressed. This is the first time ive been able to break the tires loose with stock gears and 37s. I got economy, daily, tow, street, high idle, and smoke

with certain tunes it will throw a SES light and others it wont,

and when its on street mode it will only idle at 500rpms instead of 650 like normal. is this normal?

other than that im very happy with tonys tunes they turned my truck from a slow tractor to a performance truck and in combination with the BTS the shifts are amazing too

the ses light could be coming on from over boosting, with the higher boost levels. on the street setting mine idles a little lower also

it sounds like maybe its not seated all the way or the connector isnt clean enough, otherwise send it back to tony he will work it out for you.

Well It had the light on before I put the chip in for bad GPs
I thought overboost too but it's instant as soon as I flip to certain tunes. It's off on economy and tow and high idle but as soon as I switch to something else the light comes on.

I kinda figured it was normal for the street tune to have a low idle otherwise it would have a real touchy throttle

If those are the symptoms time to send it back, mine stalled a few times switching between them but i got it reburned. Its easier to send it back with your problems then they fine tune everything. Tony is a swell guy. Yes I said swell, I feel like today is an appropiate day for 1950's words.

Is it coming on right away or just when you are in the throttle hard.

If its only when you are in the throttle hard. Its a P1211 code. Perfectly normal.

The cure for that is an adrenaline HPOP
