Problems with the latest Edge version

I have the latest Edge J/A for my LB7, was built 12/22/05. I'm having the same problems as a lot of guys have had with the older version. Truck will just shut off while driving down the road. When it does this the speed on the attitude locks on whatever speed that it occurred at. I have disconnected it and the truck runs fine. Have any of you guys experienced this with the new version? Edge is going to make it good but I'm on a 2-3 week waiting list.

Mine was built 1/26/06 and it runs fine. I will tow my 5ver tomorrow for a camping trip. This will be the true test. Current Ver 1.0 for LB7 no attitude. I did notice an additional step with this version when setting it manually. This new one is actually more responsive I think.

Mine is a 1.0 version as well. Maybe I just got a bad one.

Mine was built 1/27/06 and while I haven't gotten any starting problems, I
did have the truck stall on me once when I was towing a boat. I had come to
a stop and noticed that the engine died. However, it started right up.
Another incident was where I started the truck and the speed on the Attitude
was stuck at 23mph. I had to change the display to something else and back
to mph and it worked after that. Needless to say, I just don't have that
good of a feeling with the Edge at this point.

I just ordered the Edge/Attitude this morning. After reading this thread I don't have a good feeling either.

Mine did the exact same thing when I was towing my boat. Started right back up. It acts like the edge just locks up. Thing about it is I sent back my perfectly working Bully Dog and purchased the Edge.

Maybe one of the pins in the connector was not making good contact?

Yea, I thought the same thing so I disconnected it, inspected and reconnected. Still same results.

I just got a replacement one built on 01-27-06. Worked great till last night. I was idling for about 5 minutes [-30 f here yesterday] and as soon as I put it in reverse it died. I had just come off a 25 mile trip so the engine was up to temp. Wouldn't even turn over. My dash just went black when I turned the key. I opened the hood and I could hear a clicking sound coming from both sides of the engine. Sounded like injector solenoids clicking???? I unplugged the Edge and the clicking stopped. Hooked up the injector harnesses without the Edge and she fired up. However, when I went to move it the trans was in limp mode. No more than 2000 rpm. I shut it off for about half an hour and the limp went away but now my engine light is on. I guess it threw a code somewhere.

I really like the product but I can't have a vehicle I can't depend on. Maybe it's time to go EFILive......
