Regarding the spontaneous accelleration issue on TCS equipped cars..

I have been looking for more data and here's a problem.

Say you LS1 Edit (or ANY REPROGRAMMER OR PROGRAM NOT AUTHORIZED BY GM) your car and then sell it, and don't tell the new owner.

Then their car goes haywire. Who's liable?

******

I get that impression from some studying of available info and data that there may be unintended consequences from unauthorized reflashing here....

Not to start a flame war or a paranoia, but I think we all need to re-evaluate this reprogramming thing - or at least put it on hold till we have a better idea what's going on in this case.

I have nothing specific, nor any facts, but there is indications to lead me to think that there is something failing "beyond OEM" here.

Additioally, I need to consider HARDWARE mods, too. Something like a mod causing EFI, a mod causing RFI, something added that is affecting the class II datastream, or, yes, unauthorized reflashing of ECM/BCM, etc...

I am not considering one-shot diagnostic tests, but from off and (even more scary) on road pemanent changes to the OEM programs.

I am looking into this and would be happy to talk with anyone who may be involved in aftermarket programming or even GM Powertrain Engineers who may have additional insights...

Thanks!

Ask a police garage. Some like in Hawaii have deals where the police drive a car the policeman buys subsidized by police money then the garages do extra tricks on the cars. At least the public gets to see nice cars like camaro's pulling them over.
