PHP Hydra... how did I manage that?

Go to start the truck today... No start. No Wts light..

I waste time checking fuses and getting angry, I even had a date! Just about to cancel I was sitting in the seats and saw what I thought was n5 on the hydra switcher. So I press some buttons and HEY it starts. n5= no start mode. Okay cool.

But why did it go into this mode? I didn't do it lll

Its the 17th position automatically on the chip. Theres 16 positions on the chip to file tunes and the 17th is no start. Basically by cycling to the end of your useable tunes you find the no start.
Cool feature to me.

So basically click the right button until it shows no start. And then click the left to go out of it.

Well with my old DP ( that I don't miss at all ) it would default to the no start after any power interruption..

But this, I parked the truck, went inside, 12 hours or so later I came back out to that.

It definitely wasn't accidentally bumped, I was 7 tunes away from the no start lol.

This is the first that I have heard of a hydra randomly switching to the ns.

As mentioned above, my only thought is that there was a power surge of some sort to basically soft reset the chip.

If it happens again please shoot me an email. I would like to trade your chip out with another so I can trouble shoot the issue hopefully to isolate the problem.

Thank you
Jay

That's why I asked publicly rather than emailing or calling. I knew Jay would see this pretty quickly, he's always around the 7.3 section. And now on the off chance anybody else ever has the issue it's public record.

Truck has sat for significant periods twice since this, and no issues. I am going to watch for other things that might suggest I have a power issue (like my radio and whatnot)

Considering just how many of these chips have been sold ( I'm curious what the number is up to between Php and the various dealers), and it's the first time this has happened. I'm much more willing to bet it's my truck.

Thank you Jay for confirming that it's most likely a power issue.
