Sounds like when you down loaded your car data to the reader, they will sometimes retain it. Try going to a page on the tool with key on, engine not running, and download you car's diagnostic and run data back to it's OBB2.

For some reason it is still running off the engine tune and set up rather than the onboard computer. Only a shop with the large computers may be able to get it to convert back over, but they gonna charge. Sorry couldn't help more.
