EDGE Chip Problems

I have an 05 dodge 3500, with a 3 stage Edge Chip. Lately the truck has been shutting down at random times and speeds- no pattern whatsoever. And then if you leave it sit for a few minutes, or sometimes 30 minutes it will start again. Might run for 3 days might quit again in 3 hours. I unplugged the chip and it has run flawlessly for months- but I like haveing the chip in there. Any thoughts on what my next course of action should be? Reprogram chip? Throw it away? Buy a better chip?

Call edge and tel them about it... see what they say. I haven't had any problems out of mine, but they are a good company and Im betting they will try to work with you to make it right.

A guy at work had a problem like this but with a bully dog turns out the connector (where it plugged in under the hood) had worn out because of all the vibration from the motor and driving. What would happen is when he was driving the connector would loose the connection and short out and it would shut the truck off. Bully dog sent him a new cable and problem solved.

The reason I say "new chip" is that the symptoms you describe sound very likely to be a heat related issue. Although I only know edge products from my own using of them, I have been in the industrial electronics business for 35 years and "ghost" disorders of the type you describe in most cases turn out to be a heat sensitive controller (chip).

Usually if its a problem with a connector, it can be diagnosed by handling (twisting, pulling etc) the connectors/cables when its either running fine (it will create a problem) or if its already having a fit, then when you rattle the right cable/connector, it will fix itself.

A problem like you describe that only happens when in rough ground might be a loose connection, a connector could also have a heat problem if its sitting on top of something very hot. What you initially described sounded to me like a pretty random event that generally leads towards heat related controller problems.

Try rattling some wires, but most likely the controller is at issue....

Good Luck
