So I just finished a nightmare of a un install...... whoever was the genius that called themselves "wiring" in the vafc hacked the f**k out of it I took my time and reconnected all the pins back correctly. They had a rediculous amount of connectors and shut on there. I was so upset when I saw that.

Alright guys need some help here. I ordered a chip from phereable.net fir my set up. The first one they sent me would not turn the car on. I had to go somewhere for training and just got back home. They sent me a second chip free of charge. I plugged everything in and the car starts right up hits the 2 step and everything. So here's my problem. I go to drive the car and it hits 2 step while driving. I contact phereable and they tell me it has to do with my speed sensor. I don't know how because my speed sensor works perfectly fine. Also the check engine light is on. So I tried to do the jumper to read the codes on the p28 but the check engine light won't blink it just stays on constantly. Any ideas on wtf is going on. Thanks in advanced

so the car's wired for OBD2, but you're running a p28 ECU? I'm not sure where you'd even jump to check the codes for that ECU. With such a hack wiring job from the prior owner, no telling if you're even trying to jump the correct wires. If it all started after you installed that chip, best guess it's the chip. Good luck, I hope you get it sorted
