Play with the routing of the cable. I had to route mine around the bottom of the lower removable panel and then up to my chip. That made the interference go away.

How long have you had it? Do you have the new shielded cable? Call Jody if you are not sure.

yeah its definately the chip. Try This.

turn the key to the ON position and turn your radio on. Then try different cable routes on your DP tuner. Mine interfered terribly on the left side of the steering wheel, but when I moved it to the right it went away. Just takes some trial and error.

If the cable is round it is the new one. If it is flat, it is the old one.

If you have the gauge mount and it interferes, call Jody. He can help.
