New to thhe forum and could really use some help
« on: May 17, 2015, 11:31:34 AM »

Hello, I just bought an 88 535is that already had the War chip installed, the gentleman I purchased the vehicle was nice enough to give me the laptop to go along with the car as well. I was trying to write a tune 1 to the car just to see if i could tell a difference from the current tune. I was prompted to set a default tune first. I clicked on the default tab, opened it and pressed set as default, nothing has happened and now the car will not start, just turns over. As I am currently stuck away from the house any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You in advance. Ken  I selected the write option, screen shows working but it has been at 5% for quite awhile. How long should this take?

What operating system are you using? Format the chip to ensure it is erased. If it failed to write and left a partially - deemed corrupt now - file that will lock up the writing process.
