Tazer is not a tuner. huge difference and would not affect emissions as far as I know, unless it simply has to be removed from the ODB port by testing persons so they can access the ODB

Here's a good way to find the leak yourself. Get in the trunk with a flashlight and close the lid. Have someone, with a hose, slowly run water around the edges of the trunk lid and the tail lights. You'll be able to see where it is coming in. This is what dealers do. (Note- Afterward, if your friend tries to be funny and won't let you out, pull the emergency release).

If you don't want to crawl into the trunk, another way, is to rent one of these guys. They work cheap- usually for a bunch of bananas.

I would contact zAutomotive to see if they can help with repair or replacement as well as help to unmarry. Tazer does not make changes to the ECU so you should not have any issues with emission testing.

It appears there was a significant amount of water in the trunk for an extended amount of time. Hope you will let us know when you determine how the water got there.

Is the battery failing and is it battery fluid and not water?
If it’s a vehicle failure I’d try and get them to replace the unit as they created the situation, you may also see if the tazer company would be kind enough to replace it under unique circumstances. The worst they can say is no.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

I would see if there is a way to set the car back to stock if the Tazer is married to it.

Whatever happened with this? What was causing the leak? The Tazer part would be an easy fix, buy a new one, install the firmware version that came out before they started marrying it to your car, change the settings back to stock, update the Tazer firmware, marry it to the car and make all the changes.
