How do I marry my AP to my car?
 
Ive got a v1 cobb accessport w/ the maps on it that I want. But how do I marry it to my car to download them?

I plug it in and pick the map I want....turn off the car and back on and it reads error on the AP.

what error does it read? because to marry it all you have to do is use it, did the seller state that he/she un-married it from their car?

gangster 04-24-2011 07:12 PM

ya its been unmarried...

Do i plug it in and chose the married map? Or should it just work?

See if it's missing the latest firmware by getting the updates online.

There is a pretty easy walk through with pics in the First post of that thread. The V1 is pretty fugly I must say compared to the V2 AP.

On my 03 I dont connect two green connectors right? Its the little white connecter I attach to the plug? Then plug in my ap.....

Im guessn the kid didnt unmarry it cause its not gettn any where when i plug it in....just asks for me to choose a map then throws an error.

Now its phone call time....what a pain in the arse.

You do connect the two green connectors. That puts the car onto test mode. Then you put the white connector on the white one. Kinda like you are capping it off. At least that's how my v2 worked.

I don't get this part, but if you meant an aftermarket up pipe/gutted up pipe... And a catless aftermarket DP back... Then run stage2... In Cali, run the 91octane map stage2 from your watered down petrol.

gangster 04-26-2011 09:11 AM

Cool thanks thats what I meant. I have an aftermarket...injen upipe(catless), and a custom downpipe...catless and 3in all the way back. NO cats....she is loud. SO stage 2...thanks. ANd yup, crappy expensive gas in ca. Its a little cheaper down the hill in NV.

Step 1: Get the car good and drunk
Step 2: AP gets hooked up
Step 3: Car gets pregnant (Stage II)
Step 4: Shotgun wedding

That's how you marry an AP to a car.

Thanks guys that was easy. I just didnt have the green connectors together. Im at a stage 2 now :) Driving is sooo much more fun. But now I want more. Ive got an new walboro pump i still gotta install. So injectors are next. Then some suspension mods :)

pzr2874 04-26-2011 01:46 PM

Get your rear sway and tires next.... It will topple the stage 2 difference.
