    If its a V1, it will be stuck on the load a map screen if its unmarried.

    you didn't fully read the manual.

    "The AccessPORT has to be installed (married) before the Main Menu will be
    displayed. To bypass this requirement, you will need to hold the UP and DOWN
    arrow buttons at the same time while powering the AccessPORT on. After a few
    seconds, the “Sync to PC” message will appear on the screen. Once you have
    received that screen, you can stop holding the UP and DOWN buttons. "

    Hold the buttons then plug in the power cord. then swap/add some maps. then flash your car.

    I don't understand why something like this can't just have a simple reset button.
    Married means the accessport is going to be stuck with that specific car because of that specific ECU.

    Cobb prob made it like this so that people wouldnt do group buys and share accessports. If this was the case, these damn things wouldnt be 700 dollars.

    Anyways id go to cobbs website and search their info. Prob gonna make more sense

    "Married" means you are stuck with red M&M's forever. You can look at the green ones, but you can't eat them.

    Works much the same with the AP. To discourage thieves and to prevent using on multiple cars, the AP has to be married to your car. If it does not get a divorce (unmarry) from your car, and you sell it, the next persons car can't marry it. Think of it like marriage with a chastity belt. You can stick its plug in another port, but nothing will happen.

    Tip; never buy a used V1 from an untrusted source.
