Default AP- question Need help Married AP!!

My buddy has a version 2 accessport that he just gave me but when he traded in his car he didnt un-marry the accessport from the car. What do I have to do to get The accessport to become un-married and get it to work again? Thanks all input would be helpful.

I guess you can use it as a paperweight or send it to Cobb and have it unmarried for about $280.

Cobb can unmarry it but it will cost you.

That price is wrong actually! Cobb charges 395$ to relicense an accessport.. Feel free to call them and ask. I was in the same boat last week

It seems to me that it would only be the decent thing to do to go get it divorced. Leaving a AP married to a car that you sell and not sending it with it seems like a real douche bag thing to do.
Imagine the situation you're leaving the next buyer with. They'll get a car that has what ever tune you stuck on it and no way to put a new AP on it. So their stuck buying a new ECU or jumping through who knows how many hoops to figure out how to get it back to stock.

Seriously how can you not know you have to unmarry one? It says so right in the damned manual that you pretty much have to read in order to connect it in the first place.

I haven't even connected mine to my car yet and I know that.

the funny thing is about unmarrying the AP is that the 4 bills they charge is really a deterrent from DB 's trying to do this. I totalled an sti with the AP installed and never got a chance to unmarry it. Called COBB and they took back the AP and unmarried it for 40 bucks. Of Course I had to prove that the old STi was totalled out.

the process probably took them less than 30 seconds on a computer software flash machine. theyre not idiots.

Track down the car and work something out with the new owner....chances are, that even if you were able to find the car and unmarry it, the new owner wont feel much of a difference in power. On the plus side, if he doesnt like the feel of the car after you de-tune it, tell him you have an Accessport for sale!!!! Hahahaha!!!

thats not true i had the same problem when i bought my sti and came to realize once i bought a new AccessPort. all i did was call Chris at Cobb Tuning and he Emailed me a version of AP Manager that would overwrite the former marriage. he had to positively identify me and stuff like that but afterwards i just filled out this survey and became sort of a beta tester. Call the Customer Service and tell him what happened they should hook you up too. didn't cost me a thing.
