Tony Wildman Chip Questions.
Im brand new here to the community but have read hundreds of threads and love the site.
First of all i have a late 1999 f-350 dually 4x4 crew cab, with 4" turbo back straight pipe, Banks CAI w/zoodad mod. isspro gauges. and just added Tony Wildman Chip.
I received the chip and got it installed, making SURE i got the connectors extra clean. truck started right up and ran fine i tried the hi idle setting first to test the chip. truck reved up to 11-1200 rpm and ran smooth. good deal! i noticed the truck has a rougher idle but i expected that. I took the truck for a drive and couldn't believe the Power, but as i came back and the truck was good and warm, as i slowed down for my driveway the truck died. it has done this a few times now, mostly on the higher settings. like the idle comes down too low on the let off, or the torque converter isn't unlocking? Now i notice when the truck is warm and i use the high idle setting it revs up but has a really bad miss or is running really rough, unless i gently press the pedal, And this does not happen when the factory high idle is on. yesterday i took the truck for a 35 mile drive into town. on the way back in economy mode, the ses light came on. i then switched to the daily setting and the light immediately went off, then i switched to tow and it immediately came on, then off again on heavy tow. then on, on extreme, the light then went off on all settings after i got home and got my code reader out. there were no stored codes.
so my questions are,
is there anything i can do to make the high idle run smooth?
whats causing the truck to quit?
whats causing the ses light to come on? and should i ignore it or is there something i can do to fix it?
any suggestions or upgrades you think would help would be appreciated.
