My truck is tuned and deleted. I removed the grid heater, solenoid and all related wires.
This was during the colder months. The check engine light came on, error related to grid heater circuit. Makes sense, as everything is gone. Putting electric tape over the light helped some. However, remote start wont work if check engine light is on, EVEN if you cover the light with tape!.... ( first world problems )
So, I contact my tuner, ask about removal grid heater in the ECU. Seemed like it was a difficult request. They needed the error codes n stuff.
This part is related:
Not normally cold here, so I figured Id just wait for spring. I would clear the error and remote start would work fine till fall. But, naw, the truck don't play that. Apparently, even when its 120+ out, it cycles the grid heater. What really sucked was I HAD the electric tape just perfect to block the check engine light on the dash, and I had removed the tape prematurely.
So I figure I can try to re apply the tape to block the check engine light and just forget about remote start, OR try my tuner again.
So, I again contact tuner to see if they can disable grid heater in the system....
