CARB/EPA COMPLIANCE
NOTE: The stickers included in some products apply to products
that have received CARB exemption for emissions compliance.
This product may meet the emissions compliance
requirements of the California Air Resources Board
and Federal Environmental Protection Agency. If so,
it is legal for sale and use on pollution-controlled
vehicles operated on public streets and highways.
The device must be installed and operated
according to the instructions provided in this user’s manual. Included with
these compliant products is a sticker (similar to the one pictured above)
for you to keep in your vehicle. You can either adhere it somewhere on
the vehicle (e.g., the inside end of driver’s door) or simply store it in your
glove box. The purpose of these stickers is to inform anyone who may
have questions regarding the use of your Superchips product and how it
affects emissions. For example, it would be something to show an emissions
technician if questioned when taking your vehicle in for an emissions check
to let him/her know the product is CARB emissions compliant.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
My Flashpaq does not power up when plugged into the OBDII port?
PYour vehicle’s OBDII port is powered through a fuse the fuse may be blown. (In most vehicles, this is the same fuse shared by the cigarette lighter)
PTry the Flashpaq on another vehicle to make sure it powers up. If it does, then the wiring on the vehicle you are trying to program may be the issue (See your dealer for service).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------My Flashpaq Says: “Non-Stock File Detected...”
PYour vehicle may have been programmed by another
device. Use that device to set your vehicle back to stock before using the Flashpaq.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------When reading the vehicle’s trouble codes (DTCs), I received
a P1000 error code?
PP1000 is a DTC that sometimes appears after a vehicle is programmed or the battery cables are unplugged from the battery. It will automatically clear after several drive cycles. It cannot be removed using the ‘DTC Clear’ function.
30
My vehicle has several aftermarket part modifications and
after I program it with the Flashpaq, the vehicle does not
run well?
PA Flashpaq is designed for stock vehicles (factory stock calibrations and stock engine & transmissions). In some cases, upgrades like air filters, shorty headers, cold air intakes, or cat-back exhausts may not be supported.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------I left Flashpaq tuning in my vehicle and went to my dealer
for service, now my Flashpaq will not work?
PThe dealership likely updated your vehicle’s calibrations, and saved over the tuning. The Flashpaq does not recognize the new files in your vehicle. Contact Superchips customer care at 407.585.7000 to correct the situation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------My programmer did not complete programming and went
into recovery mode?
PFlashpaq programmers are designed with ‘Recovery Mode’ which means if, for any reason, the programming process does not finish, the programmer will automatically program your vehicle back to the factory stock settings.
It is necessary to follow the screen prompts, possibly
requiring several ‘Ignition On’ and ‘Ignition Off’ sequences. When recovery is complete your vehicle is at factory stock. 31
TROUBLE SHOOTING CONT’D
You are now able to start your vehicle normally. You
may now attempt to program your vehicle again. In the event that recovery is unsuccessful or fails to complete the programming cycle, a status message will display on the programmer. Please make note of the message displayed and contact Superchips Customer Care at 407.585.7000.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------My programmer shows a ‘vehicle calibration not on file’
status.
PThe Flashpaq is loaded with the latest databases meant to provide extremely broad vehicle coverage. ‘Vehicle
calibration not on file’ status occurs when programmer does not have the necessary calibration files to program a vehicle. Update your programmer using the Ignition update software. If your calibration is available it will be downloaded to your programmer for immediate use. If your calibration is not available, your calibration will be uploaded to Superchips’ R&D for tuning. You will receive an e-mail as soon as your calibration is available. Calibrations are usually available in 5 business days.
32
STORAGE AND MAINTENANCE
NOTICE
It is NOT recommended to store your programmer in your vehicle in
extreme heat, direct sunlight or extreme cold (temperatures near or
below freezing). These conditions can cause malfunction or damage
to the programmer.
TIP: When you are not using your device,
place it in its protective bag. This will keep the
display from getting scratched.
TIP: Prior to using your device after a long period of non-use, use Ignition to update. This will ensure
that your device is up-to-date and contains all of the latest files and functionality.

SAFETY GUIDELINES
WARNING
Before using device, read and understand the user manual, including these additional
safety instructions. Failure to do so could result in DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY.
•
Do not exceed legal speed limits on public roadways. Violating traffic laws is dangerous
and could result in injury or vehicle damage or both.
•
Use any enhanced speed capabilities of this product only in closed circuit, legally
sanctioned racing environments expressly for this purpose. Violating traffic laws is
dangerous and could result in injury or vehicle damage or both.
•
Do not operate the device while driving. Distracted driving could result in traffic accidents,
death or serious injury, and/or damage to your vehicle. Always perform all adjustments or
changes while stopped. Changing a setting while driving can interfere with your attention
to roadway conditions and could result in injury or vehicle damage or both.
•
Do not stack products. “Stacking” performance-enhancing devices or other improper
installation can cause power train failure on the road. Other products may have
features incompatible with your Superchips device. Follow all installation and operating
instructions.
•
Some modifications may affect other parts of your vehicle. For example, if you remove/
adjust the speed limiter in your vehicle, be sure your tires and other components are
rated for the increased speeds they will have to withstand. Not doing so can lead to
loss of vehicle control. Modify the speed limiter only for use in closed circuit, legally
sanctioned racing environments, not for use on public roadways.

VEHICLE WARRANTY INFO
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR VEHICLE’S WARRANTY
Many of our customers ask, “Will your product void my vehicle’s
manufacturer’s warranty?” Powerteq is committed to providing quality
products that are safe to use. Our products do not cause damage to a
vehicle when used as intended in accordance with the User Manual and
should not void your vehicle’s manufacturer’s warranty.
However, the reality is that many dealerships have been known to
improperly void warranties on vehicles that use aftermarket products as a
matter of policy. This applies in particular to those aftermarket products that
produce horsepower, such as performance enhancement “chips,” modified
intake manifolds, or aftermarket exhaust systems, regardless of product
brand.
Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act provides that if something breaks on your
vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your
warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle
actually caused the problem in question.
In order to understand your rights under the Federal Magnuson-Moss
Warranty Act, Powerteq recommends that you contact qualified legal
counsel.
