    As this probably won't help you much right now try calling Cobb tom. and talk to one of there Serv. Reps. They have helped me with my issues and my ap works Great now! It sounds like it's frozen or it wasn't unmarried.

    what happens if its frozen? so do i have to load the 93 map to the car to marry it first and then take it back to the computer and load the 91 map then load that to the car? i am not getting any options what so ever on my ap but to load the 93 stage 2 map.

    BTW dude I have been doing some further research for you on this subject and well.....ITS Not looking good man. Basically your accessport is married. The only way your going to get it unmarried so you can use is is if you take it to the previous owners car plug it in and properly unmarry it. Sorry dude

    Can't you also send it back to COBB and they can unmarry it for $$$?

    My friend jordan had a used v1 that was married. If you send it to cobb your gonna have to pay like 300-400 bucks I believe. Best to either find the guy and either get your money back or have him properly unmarry it. if you cant do those than basically your stuck with it

    Before you do anything else, call COBB in the AM.

    I'd still call COBB, I'm sure they can walk you through it.

    Can someone explain to me the 'being married' part?

    I don't understand why something like this can't just have a simple reset button.
