CarChip - Safety Notice

CarChip has been carefully designed and tested to comply with OBDII protocols, which are used on most 1996 and newer cars and light trucks sold in the USA. However, some vehicle models are not in full compliance with these protocols for various reasons. In addition, the computer control systems on any given vehicle may be malfunctioning or out of spec, as may be the sensors used by these systems.

Before installing CarChip, be sure to review the list of known vehicle conflicts and exclusions. For more information on OBDII issues and anomalies in general, we recommend The Equipment and Tool Institute's website at www.etools.org.

While our testing and the experience of thousands of CarChip users have shown the unit to be safe and reliable, there is an inherent risk in adding any aftermarket product that may potentially affect the operation or drivability of your vehicle.

If you are concerned about the operation of your vehicle at any time while using CarChip:

  • You should pull over, off the roadway, immediately or as soon as it is safe to do so.
  • Remove CarChip from the OBDII port.
  • Consult a licensed mechanicor automobile service center.
