Anyone have serious problems with there trinity??

i just ordered the trinity tuner from diablo and ive recently been reading on diablo's forums that alot of guys with '12 charger and 300 srt8s have been having some werid issues with there tuner such as there car wouldnt start, that the tuner shut down there car or that they cant raise the shift points or rev limiter and many more other problems.. its just makes me a bit nervous to get the tuner and have it complete screw up my jeep. theres so many complaints that i dont know if this thing will work or not.. anyone on here have any of these problems aswell??

Forza's Jeep, a member here, has an issue with his Jeep that Diablo is working to fix. I think he is the only Jeep issue so far?

I recently tuned mine and returned to stock without any problems. Sometimes a tune wouldn't write a first, but nothing that trying again didn't solve.

The tuning is very new, so there is a potential for an issue. Diablo will be good about fixing any problem that should arise.

There have been NO issues reported on the GCSRT8 models besides Forzas not seeing the last key cycle (it still loads tune fine).

No need to wait, tune it up and enjoy!!

on the way home from work tonight i went to punch it. instead the car bogged and the engine light came on. running the 93 octane tune. shut the car off and turned it back on a couple of times but the light is still showing. any thoughts? The tune has been on for a month now with no issues. The car seems to be driving ok but i did baby it home as it's below zero out there tonight and i didn't want to break down.

Sounds kinda like fuel freezing up. Use to happen to me when I lived up north. Use to mix Aviation fuel in to solve the problem.

If the CEL light is on, you should have a code that the trinity can read...if so, what is the code?

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year plan...so 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.

new to the whole tuning thing. how do i get the trinity to read the code?

i just plugged my trinity 1000 into my laptop. if i go to thetroubleshooting menu i have the following options: show calibartion ID, show VIN, forece set failure, force calibration, force relearn variant or reset help hints.

none of these seem to tell me to look for a code issue.
