I’ve tried multiple times and I keep getting this message. Then it says my ECU is in recovery mode
    Help! I have to drive to work!

    Turn everything off, unplug everything, and then re-connect / reboot. It should recognize that it's in recovery mode and prompt you for a flash back to stock. You can then re-attempt the flash at your convenience.

    I can’t get the cars dash to go off either. I’ll call ktuner and see if I can get some help. Maybe i should unplug the battery too?

    If you called them you would get a instant reply instead of waiting for someone to reply

    The main problem was running windows 10 on an older MacBook Pro with only 4gb total ram. Everything lagged and took an eternity to load which in my opinion kept causing errors with ktuner flash uploads. Ended up buying a $300 Dell and I am having no issues now!

    That seems to be just Ktuner. I have my laptop with 16GB and a quad core and it did not want to cooperate.

    Really? I would get it to work 1 in 5 attempts, tried new windows laptop and worked first time. How did you fix?

    I didn't really. On my laptop it was awful. On my desktop it was instant. But I can't take that outside.
