WARNING - WARNING --- Anyone interested in the G Force Chip Kit to improve fuel mileage and increase Hp - STAY AWAY - was interested in the product and stupidly fell for the customer endorcements.

Well the first indication should have been the lack of customer service from the start, The product took almost 3 weeks longer to get than stated, and once it was installed it didn't work correctly ( no problem ) email tech support, they started out to be responsive, they decided it would be a good idea to send the product back ( at my expense ), so they could check it ???.

NOW the fun begins, after removing it from my '10 Jeep, the Jeep won't run, the throttle won't respond, all of the idiot lights are on, and sometimes it just shuts down. After informing them of this fact, they wanted me to check the fuses ( all okay), after informing them of this, I've not heard one word from them in over a week, calling gets no response, the person on the other end passes the buck (not my department or problem), well Thanks for all your HELP.

SO STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT.

I'll let you know what the dealer has to say about it.

Try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes to allow the computer to reset itself as far as your problems go. The chip itself should not have reprogrammed the computer itself, that would probably be an infringement of some sort and not be legal. Thanks for the update on the chip problem, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.

Thanks Dana44, I've been doing that just to get it moved around. It seems to work okay for a few miles after that, but then back to it.

My concern is that I was sent the wrong chip unit altogether and somehow that has corrupted the onboard ECU. To be honest I'm hoping the dealer finds something unrelated to explain it, but I'm not usually that lucky.
