Superchips Problem?

I bought this Superchips Tunner on ebay and just received it and when I plug it in it does not turn on. I have the key in but the ignition turn in the off posistion but nothing. Has anybody ever heard of this problem before?

Thanks,
Rick

I know a friend had a hypertech tuner and he forgot to return the programmer back to stock setting and we tried to install it on my truck and the same thing happened to me.

According to the manual if it has been vin loced it will tell you. But it seems to not be getting power.

if it was vin locked it will tell you for sure...as soon as ya plug it in it should light up and give ya the superchips logo and the model ... sounds like the port is not powered check fuses.. if they are all good the tuner may be f*ed

Yep should fire right up. if you have another 96 newer auto try it to see if turns on to verify it isnt your truck.

It should come on with out the key in the truck. Ive put mine on several trucks and worked fine, and then I was going to put it on the company truck and thats exactly what it did. I never did get it to work. But still works fine on others. Try it on another truck.

I went to Autozone this morning and ask the guy there to plug in his scan tool and see if his worked, it would not power his up either we tried in the off posistion, on posistion and even started it nothing.

Hey guys I found an open fuse that runs the cigarette lighter and the OBD II port. I replaced the fuse and it now works! I hooked up the Superchips tunner and upgraded the program and man what a difference, it reminds me of my 04 250 6.0.

Thanks Chris for sugessting to check the fuse. It always seems the simple things trip you up.
