Vx series 2 commodore equipe
Gday I’ve just swapped out the pcm for my series 2 vx commodore ecotec and thermo fans flick on off on off and oil light comes on after a few seconds along with a higher idle no idea why and when I change it back to the old tune it runs fine, any help would be appreciated

Need more info. Where did you get it from? What did they change? etc...

Mail order tune from mace engineering, it is changed to run on 98 with corresponding mods, I’ve gotten one before and it worked fine unless swapping it over when the engine is still warm is an issue? The battery was disconnected in the whole process as well

I think it's more of a mace thing haha. I'd be ringing Steve and asking him but sometimes there tunes can be hit and miss from what I've seen.

Either the memcal or tune loaded in got corrupted if it runs fine on original but not on the shelf tune.

Could always try it in another car to back the theory up...as usual check fault codes just in case.

$3000 change over for a .bin pcm and $150 for a memcal or so from memory.
