DP-Tuner question

Weird problem. When I honk the horn, the DP-Tuner flip switch display flickers and the engine either stumbles or completely dies. Any suggestions?

LOL... Remove tuner...

The DP nuts will come around and tell you to add beads to the line... or they will tell you its because of your cheap HID kit... or something other then a piss poor design.

Oh boy....LOL

Don't listen to Joe he hates us because he used drugs on his truck and it blew up. Whaaah!

Mykol, did you call earlier? We stopped using the flat ribbon cable 2 months after the F5 came out in 2006 to tighten up the interference from certain cheap HID ballasts being poorly made and freaking out the PCM. Yes, It was to keep RF from freaking out our product. Not what Joe has so poorly explained.

I'll be happy to send you a new cable. Just let me know.

Yes, I did call and it sounds like the shielded cable should fix me up. Thanks a bunch!!

I haven't received the new cable yet. When I do, I will install and accurately report the results. Ok, CSIPSD?

As for my experience with DP-Tuner, I couldn't be happier! I will not offer any negative comments about other brands of tuners that I have not tried, but I love the results and am glad I chose the DP-Tuner.

I know my mentioned problem isn't common, but for the few that may have had this issue I wanted to post that the new RF cable did fix the problem. Thanks
