Superchip side effect

After programming my 06 Overland with the Superchips "Mileage XS Tune" & adjusting my tire size, I've noticed two problems that I am now having.

1. The outside temperature gauge sticks. It's showing 70 when I know it's over 90. The 70 was from the other night. I've driven it most of the day and it still has not changed. The other day it stuck but it changed after 10 minutes.

2. The sunroof one touch operation doesn't work like it's suppose to. When I open the sunroof, it stops 1/4, 1/2 & 3/4 of the way for the most part. Sometimes it goes straight to 1/2 but never full anymore unless I keep holding or pressing the button several times. Closing it does the same but it's more random.

I did not have any of these problems prior to the Superchip programming. The temperature displayed correctly and updated within a min of turning the vehicle on. One-touch operation with the sunroof USE TO open and close correctly.

Do you think Superchip may have messed up something in the programming dealing with the temperature and the sunroof? I have not switched it back to stock programming because I don't want to keep programming the thing and risk messing things up.

How bad is it to keep changing the programming with the Superchip?

Re: Superchip side effect

Have you tried removing the tune and seeing if these problem persist. Another guy on here put a tip on how to completely close the sunroof
