Quadzilla v2 check engine light/lost power

Recommended Posts

So I’ve had my quadzilla on for the past 3 weeks I’d say. It’s been great. Really woke up the truck. Today I was on my way back from a 2hr long drive picking up an air dog 150. When I was 5min away from my dorm going roughly 45mph just normal driving/cruising my check engine light came on and the truck went down to 800 (roughly around idle speed) rpms and I had no power. Pulled over to the side and let it idle for a while and then I slowly drove away and it’s been driving fine. Haven’t been able to check the code yet but will run to oriellys tomorrow to get it checked ( wish you could check codes from the iquad but not a big deal). Has anybody else had an issue like this? I’m trying to figure out if it’s quadzilla related or just my trucks issue. All insight in appreciated, thanks in advance!

it is impossible to know until you know the code 

 

sounds like a crank sensor issue to me.

So it was the throttle position sensor wasn’t agreeing with the volts. I’ll watch it and see if it happens again or if was a certain bump that set it off 🤦‍♂️

And it had the typical overboost code but it was the tps that set the light off

You got dead pedal.  Sign that your APPS is going out.

Also, why did you have an overboost code?  The Quad acts as a boost fooler.

I’m not sure how long the overboost has been on their. It never set of my check engine light. Would it be m apps or my tps? The code said it was the tps

@Youngblood24v you could try stuffing some dielectric grease in the connector and cycling the plug a few times to see if that helps.  A year ago I had the dead pedal issue, tried the grease, and then it went away for almost a full year before the stock APPS gave up the ghost completely and I ended up putting a Timbo APPS on it
