Well something is wrong with it. the guy at the dealership said he started it right after the reprogram and it sounded really bad so he shut it off. When he went to restart it, it would only click. I had my wife start it when I looked and listened under the hood. I could hear the starter clicking and see the belt spin extremely slow. So I think when he started it the first time the starter stuck on and was grinding against the fly wheel, then it fried it. Now it's too weak to turn the engine over. I had no choice but to leave it there and let them look at it, but they can't look at it till monday.
