Won't start with Bama 91 Race Tune

I've been running Bama's 91 race tune (w/BBK CAI) for the last month and have had issues starting.
When turn the ignition my car would click and the power intermittently cuts in/out, but would eventually start.
I usually keep my odometer on the trip odometer, but whenever I start it reverts back to the total mileage odometer.
This didn't bug me much, as I would just switch it back to the trip odometer.

This past week I noticed that my fuel gauge was acting a little erratic, so I decided to revert back to stock and try re-uploading the 91R tune. After reverting back to stock, I couldn't get it to start.

I checked my battery level and noticed that it was low so I replaced the battery.
Tried starting again, no dice.
Uploaded the 91R tune thinking it would somehow resolve the issue, still no dice.
I ran the 87 street tune for a month prior w/o issues. 91R has me all messed up.

I ran the 87 street tune for a month w/no issues. 91R has me all messed up.

I'm giving Bama a call tomorrow, but in the meantime has anyone had this similar issue?

*Update*

Got off the phone with Bama and they told me to check the car, because the tune is relatively simple and should not cause any issues.

Here's a video of my trying to start it.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Just when i think I may try a tune, I see a thread like this and think, yeah, stock is just fine and fast enough for me.

Ok, so much for tech support....an easy way to ID the culprit is to put it back to oem tune, if it's gone, time for BAMA to actually step up to the plate.....sorry I just re-read your post......


Time to check for codes and a corrupt software download could have easily caused these issue....but it should be checked to ensure there are no other issues.

The guy I talked to seemed like he didn't really want to help me solve my problem. I disconnected the battery and returned it to stock, but it's still giving me the same trouble. Nevertheless I'll give them benefit of the doubt and take it to the shop tomorrow. Will update this post. Thanks for responding.

Ended up fixing the problem on my own.

1) Disconnected positive and negative battery terminals.
2) Touched the cables together, not the battery posts!
3) Left the battery disconnected for an hour.
4) Connected the battery.

Viola, car started!
I read somewhere that touching the two terminal ends together discharges any current left in the car's capacitors, including the ones in the ECU.

Hope this can help someone else in the future.
