Need quick TS chip answer....

So I have a ts on my truck, the 6 position and I installed it over the summer. Now that winter has hit, The truck wont start in the cold... Come to find out that my truck is a cali truck. and I've heard that you need a certain 6 position chip if your truck is a California truck? Is this true and do I need them to reburn the chip to a cali slandered? Help...

Put it back to stock and try again.

If you needed to have it on a Cali Standard, it wouldn't have started the minute you put it in.
If you're going to custom tune, it might be a diff issue.

Well I plan to take it out tomorrow and see... But I've just heard that its not good for the truck and could fry something idk... I'll probably contact thoroughbred the people I bought it from and see what they say...

i always start mine in the stock setting and drive stock until it warms up
it starts like crap in the cold on any of the settings other than stock.

A TS chip should not have anything to do with your truck not starting in the cold. It may just be a coincidence and you may need glow plugs, glow plug relay, or something else.

as mentioned, put it back to stock and see, but I am certain its not the chip. I have run a chip for years now and never had an issue in the winter.
