Question Cobb AP V2, wont turn on

I was searching around and just got done sending Cobb Techs an email. Was just wondering if anyone running the Cobb AP V2 of any model WRX/STI ever turned the car and plugged in the AP and it didnt turn on? I tried and check all connections, even tried it on my computer and to no luck at all. I havent seen or heard of this often at all. If and when I get a reply back from Cobb I will be sure to share it just in case it ever happens to someone else.

I'm thinking the unit might be bad too. The screen of my AP V2 turns on as soon as it's connected to my computer or my car - even if the green test mode connectors aren't connected.

Well I got it to finally turn on again. Disconnected the battery, drained the residual power, hooked the battery up and fired up the car. Turned the car off, hooked up the jumper block and AP, turned right on. Car seems to be running stronger (probably in my head), but plan on running to my tuner (pacific Import Tuner) ASAP this week and see what they have to say. Also still waiting for a reply from Cobb and will update them also. Thanks guys.

Glad you got everything sorted out. I can only imagine your disappointment when you plugged it in and then nothing happened. Hope you're enjoying your extra bit o' power.

It's threads like this that can be helpful to other people who have similar issues, so thanks for posting too.

Isnt there a certain amount of volts that need to be available for the ap to turn on? I think its some kind of safety mechanism on there so just in case while your ap is reflashing and you run out of juice it doesnt screw up your ecu???

Not sure about AP but I know that rom raider has that feature. It connects to the ECU, then checks the battery voltage. If it's below 11.7V, it aborts the flash.

Ah, you know, that would make sense. I bet you're correct.

Thanks everyone for the support and all. Can runs like a champ. Im hitting 16PSI strong in 3rd through 5th. Cobb hit me back, said nothing to do except exchange it if it was bad. Im going to my tuners friday since Im off. They said it happens once in a great while, usually nothing wrong.

Well the whole tihng with my AP has been solved. I did end up having to send it in. Something internally was broke with it. Cost about $255 for shipping to and from Cobb plus the repair. But it has the newest update and works like a charm again.

That would make me mad if Cobb made you pay that.
