    How do you guys remove this thing?

    I unhooked it. Connected stock wire.
    Turned on car.
    Got the christmas-lights of warnings.
    No ESC. No hill mode. No I dont know what.

    Turned it off and on again.

    Same thing.

    Drove for 60 feet.

    Turned off and on again. This time only the check engine light.

    It wont go away!

    Really frustrating.

    The check engine light was still there this morning.

    Do I use Forscan to read the fault and perhaps clear the CEL?

    Thanks guys.

    Yes, pull the code.

    installing is particular about not having any of the key fobs close.

    make sure you record any codes before clearing.

    Thanks, smurf.
    That's exactly what I did.

    Took screen shots of the error and then cleared the check engine light.

    Here's the fault it recorded:

    That sounds to me like you got a sensor reading that was out of acceptable range. What was the pedal commander set at?

    I don’t want to worry about any key fob being to close or any of that so I just disconnected the negative battery terminal when I installed mine. Zero issues so far.

    weird. The simplest install - and probably de-install is battery disconnect first, manipulate throttle wires, reconnect battery. FWIW, if you install with the battery connected, make sure the interior alarm sensors aren’t on if you are going to take more than 10-15 minutes or the alarm will get triggered - then you have to get the keys from wherever you stashed them while your truck is blaring the ’someone’s trying to steal me’ conniption fit.

    I just turn the PC off and tuck it under the interior trim. Thanks for your disconnect tale of woe, maybe others will be more successful.

    Woe after woe indeed.

    I decided, after 3 weeks of actively using it, that I & my raptor deserve better.

    Took it off.
    Sent it back for a refund.
    $300 it's a lot for a meddling device & extra poor customer service.
    I like Turkish food & the Turkish country side but stay away from űlker-grade products :p.

    Installed the mpt tune.
    So far so good.
