I’ll try and email them but it says they have discontinued the product.

upon contacting them they offer a service now where they can unlock it and flash it back to factory however you need to ship the ecu to them.

Is there a reason you cant go back to the first guy to fix the issue or have him unlock it?

The shop has quoted me a period of two months waiting time as they are overbooked with orders. Therefore they are unable to send me the tool used to flash the factory tune back on. Being a daily driver I can’t wait that long as I use my car everyday. So this option whilst not the cheapest is definitely the quickest.

As far as fixing up the tune the shop has just said that I should unplug the battery for 15mins. Or pay to get another tune which id rather do locally now.

battery will do nothing if its locked so if its properly locked only way is for them to tell u the code so next tuner (if using same software) can unlock it and keep going with new changes, tunes do not change once power is removed, if u have to pay to get another tune then u still have to get it unlocked there is no easy way around a locked tune without paying something

Yeah I’ve figured hence why I’m sending it out to envyous customs to unlock my ecu and flash to factory settings.
