Just to clarify for anyone that may have doubt. I ran my 2014 CRD for nearly 1k miles with the engine will not restart message, after the countdown ran out.
The only draw back was that my remote start was disabled due to the CEL. if I did not have the GDE Hot tune i would have been screwed and at the mercy of the dealer. i have since installed the CB engineering turbo back pipe with the GDE Offroad tune and all is well.
I cant stress enough how well any combination of these solutions works. To me it was an investment in longevity and away to get myself out from under the thumb of my incompetent dealership.
Also, if you live in N. Jersey or the tri state area, I had my install done at Total performance in Mahwah. They're an outstanding operation.
Big Big thanks to the GDE team, Christian at CB-engineering, and Chris / Mike at Total performance
