EDC malfunction with KW sleeve over

2000 miles later after installing the KW SO, EDC malfunction came up today. I checked and rechecked both front connections, disconnected the negative battery and yet to drive it around. If it doesn't go away after driving for a while, I'm going to bring it in to the closest dealer. However, I'm worried that this will not be covered under warranty and will have to pay. Should I return it to stock springs before bringing it in?

Stealership might blame it on the KW sleeves and void your warranty!


Make sure all 4 connectors are plug in and not loose, that might cause the EDC malfunction also

most of the EDC Errors i see are from loose connectors, hope its just the rear plugs in your case

I'd make sure of the connectors too.

Phew, drove the car a few yards and the malfunction went away. I initially just checked the two front connections and disconnected the negative terminal of the battery temporarily and left the car in the garage for a few hours. I then decided to check the rear connections. Drove out of the garage and passed the driveway, only then the malfunction went away. The front right connection was very slightly loose and didn't notice this in the beginning until I compared all four. For future reference to those who comes across the same problem: Drive the car after disconnecting and reconnecting the EDC connectors.
