We just got off the phone.

I'm not to sure without being there. That is the only thing I have never messed with. When we did Craigs car he did the tune install.

I tried calling my local Trifecta guy, but he hasn't got back to me yet.

How many times did you try to flash the tune? Sometimes it doesn't write everything and you need to write it 2 times. Disconnecting the battery isn't going to do anything, as the programming/tune on the VCM doesn't change/reset from a dead battery. The only thing that affects is your IAC (Idle Air Control) sensor. I'd say restart your computer, turn off your car, wait 5 minutes, turn your computer on, reconnect the tuner, turn your car to the on position, have your doors closed and re-write the tune to your VCM. After it's done, start it up and engage the tune, and see if it worked.

I'm letting my car sit until 11pm(1hr10min) and Im going to start it up again and see if it all engaged...ive contacted Vince and he asked me to elaborate on the problem at hand sooo we'll see what he has to say with my situation...

---------- Post added at 10:10 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:52 PM ----------

So it turns out Vince was smart...he sent me stock files and custom files...

I didn't know it...unfortunately
so basically I tuned and untuned my car twice...

Installing the custom files as we speak..
I feel really smart... >.>
