    line lock

    i have an SLP line lock on my 99 z-28, when i use it to do a burnout it works fine. When i release the button it doesn't release the brake. I have to shut off the car and start it back up for the line lock to release. Has anybody had that problem before, i've only used the thing a handful of times.

    man i was wondering when somebody might chime in on this one. thanks for the tip ill try and look at all the wiring on it and let you know. i thought it might be the solenoid sticking and it resets when i shut the car off.

    ye me to but sometimes its fun to just sit there and scorch the hell out of the tires, and it helps at the strip to get the drag radials good and sticky.

    sounds like the button is not working right. Take a volt meter and make sure the switch is releasing properly.

    Had that same problem you have. And everyone tried to tell me I had it wired incorrectly, funny cause I am an aircraft electrician been one for 14 years, so yeah NO. Counted my loss and bought a new one, after about a month it did it too. Called SLP and talked to them, they had me send both back to them, and it was discovered the solenoid was bad/defective. They sent me 2 brand new ones. Installed one and the other is a backup just incase. Been installed for over a year now with no problems, and I use the hell out of it.

    Every one I know seems to have one and never had a problem... beat the hell outta me. SLP had me take pics of how I have it wired and ran. It beat the hell outta them too. Then they tested the 2 bad ones I sent them and yep, they were defective. I didn't change a thing, and my 3rd one works like a champ. Who knows, maybe something got in them during shipping/wharehouse storage or maybe they weren't handled without any kind of care.
