My car will not go over 50 miles per hour!
I had reconstructive surgery on my ACL last week (left knee). I won't be able to operate a clutch for a couple weeks so I've traded cars with my wife (her truck is an automatic). Today is the first day of the trade. I have a programmer for the Mustang. As I received it, the rev limit was set to 6800 rpms. I thought that was a little high but I left it there as I'm the only one that drives the car. Last night I figured I should set the limiter to a lower setting being that my wife would be driving it. After lowering the rev limiter in the programmer I scrolled through some of the other parameters it lets you modify. One of these parameters is a mph limit. I messed around with the setting, saw it could go down to 50 mph but then I canceled out (or so I thought). I programmed in the new rpm rev limiter and all was good.
I just received a call from my wife. I could tell by her voice that she was very concerned. She swears to me she's done nothing wrong but she's driving my car and it won't go any faster then 50 miles per hour! (Oh boy)... I tell her not to worry. That I think I have a pretty good idea what the problem is. I then proceed to explain to her about the programmer. She laughed it off but I don't think she's too happy with me. It wouldn't have been so bad if not for the fact that she has an appointment that involves driving on the Parkway. No fun driving on the GS parkway at 50 mph...
Let this be a warning to all, Beware the MPH limiter... ugh...:nogrinner
