    Default Tuning Box issues

    Recently bought a tuning box from eBay - admittedly not one I've heard of - plugged it in tonight, only to find that all it seems to do is bring the idle revs up to about 1400rpm (constant) and make the throttle pedal completely non-responsive...

    Have a bought an expensive ornament, or am I missing something?

    The service light also comes on, along with the traction control light. Reset the ECU by disconnecting/reconnecting the battery but still no joy.

    Anyone any ideas?

    150 or 120?

    I did the same thing after putting it back on my 150 after the MOT, the plug on the end of the common rail was the wrong way round, un plug it & flip it round, plug back in & hey presto.

    It's a 150 - I took a look at the cabling but unless im mistaken the plugs are keyed so you can't put them the wrong way round...

    Trust me on this, unplug the connector from the box to the end of your common rail, switch it round & plug back in, then try it.

    Mine did exactly this, looked right, swapped it round & instant grin when pressing the go pedal

    Sorry Marc but that's absolute nonsense. If they damaged your engine there wouldn't be companies such as DT UK. They are proven to make great gains with small cost & ease to revert back to standard. Flywheel damage? I can't see how you're going to do that, and as for not being smooth, you only make the acceleration as rough as you make it. I do 1500 miles a month, yes I have a play every now & then, but there's no reason as to why having a tuning box is going to do damage to my car.

    That looks like the correct connector I think that end plugs into the yellow connector that plugs into the fuel rail and the other connector from the tuning box fits onto the fuel rail. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...-to-a-CDTi-150

    It's called torque the more torque that goes thru ya flywheel the more it's going to wear it away ask others on here prob the maim reason my gearbox went. As for damage all a tuning box does is make dikes readings and pushes a load of fuel into the injectors making the car over fuel so when u put ya foot down u get a load of smoke. Also damages the Egr swirl and manifold henice why when u get a remap u delete the Egr. U can put a blank on the Egr to stop damage.
