Programmers voiding warranty?
Does any one know if programmer void any warranties? Because I was told by the dealership that it would. They said that if it has had one on it they can tell cause it would erase some kind of codes that was originally on it. I have never heard this and just wanted to know because I think that my truck had one on it and the original owner took it off when he got ready to sell it.2003 Avalanche 4x4 with cladding 110k miles +, K&N stock replacement air filter, Skyjacker 8000 shocks, Hawks LTS pads, Summit Racing brand drilled and sloted rotors, Sylvania ZXE high & low beams, leveling kit, 285/70/r17 Michelin M/S

They are right in a sense, when you go back to stock it restarts the engine learning process. # of starts/stops, rpm's, top speeds and all of that. I had it happen to me, but they never voided the warranty because I told them it was for the tire size and speedometer which It was. Tech II tells them everything, I would say it depends on how strict your dealer is.
Side Note: when you disconnect your negative battery cable it does the same thing to the computer, I just had that experience at the e-check. I used a quick disconnect for when I store my truck, and since it didn't have time to re-learn running parameters it failed! You won't have a problem if the truck is able to be run after you return it to stock, but if It dies completely and you can't get it returned to stock then your screwed.2004 Chevy Colorado

Yeah they told me today that if a truck rolls into the shop with any kind of programmer on it, they cant fix the motor trany or rear end under warranty and they have to automatically void the warranty. And that suck because I wanted to put one on it. Guess I will be waiting until I get over 100K to get one now.

If you want a programmer just buy a 2nd PCM and have it programmed. Save the stock one for warranty work. There is no way in hell the dealer will ever know you had one on your truck.Jim

Shoot Jenna Bear a PM. They can set up a PCM for your truck and you could just swap it in.
