    Map history

    If they change it back though you won't see any change in the map, worth having a look though. At this stage there's no way to know what they did. A log or even version control system for tuners (and users) is on the wishlist already. edit: could try downloading the log stored in the ecu.

    KnockBlock in PCLink

    You can plug a knock block into the microphone jack on a laptop and monitor it in PCLink, you should be able to listen to the mic input at the same time, you may need to go to your sound settings and click "listen to mic" or something. Here's my jamming master of puppets into the microphone on my laptop, I can hear the distorted mess that comes out on my ear piece.

    Just moved you over to the wishlist there. I'll add it to the list.

    Slow reacting

    We updated PCLink last week, but had to take it down again after some bug reports, should be back up soon. I found my laptop slow too when I first got it, a driver update fixed it. Make sure to get the proper drivers from the vendor.

    1991 R32 GTR - No spark, ECU disconnects

    Voltage on pin 8/45 needs to stay above about 8.2V to keep the ECCS relay on. If it does drop then it will need to recover to about 8.7-9V for the ECCS relay to come back on and for the ECU to start up again. This can take a few seconds to happen. Try pulling your ignition barrel apart and cleaning the contacts, this seems to make the biggest difference to voltage during cranking.

    IAT Sensor Choice for turbo charged vehicles

    Yeah IATB is the better option. Faster acting.

    [UPDATE] PCLink 5.6.5.3338b Released

    Hey Brad, it's firmware too, I too noted its absence from the changelog and have been trying to get a chance to test it but haven't yet.

    [UPDATE] PCLink 5.6.6.3564 (on hold)

    Hey everyone, I know you've been hanging out for this one. PCLink Version 5.6.6 3564 (DLL rev 3544) 15/08/2018 New Features Right Mouse Click on a time plot to add a marker or section. File Directory tab in Options window lets the user specify a folder to always load from/save to Hinged axis titles in Surface View. Locked Surface view (similar to old surface view behaviour) Chinese language added coming soon Spanish language added also coming soon Changes Some lists have had their default layout changed (alphabetical still works) Minor improvements to the Logging Setup window. Minor improvements to parameter selection. Improved b marker drawing on the time plot. Changed how parameter colours are named (see Parameter Menu and Setting up a Dial Gauges Runtime Values for details). Improved consistency of keyboard shortcut keys across PCLink. Searching CAN Parameters now takes into account transmit/receive filter. Fixes Fixed few bugs with saving log files and holding F8 key. Fixed bug in Aux Output where Diff Fuel Pressure was not triggering correctly. Fixed bug with compare file and cell colours not changing. Fixed bug where PCLink would crash if the computer (laptop) was put to sleep. Fixed Cal tables 1-3 from wrapping around when output table start is set to a -ve number. FP Speed Table now resizes correctly when double clicked. DI14 now displays wheel speed label properly. Imperial units in table axis setup improved. Surface Graph fixed for Nvidia graphics chipsets. G4+ Firmware Version 5.6.6.3557 ā€“ 15/08/2018 New Features Added trigger modes for LS2 with moved cam sensor, Rover K series with CAM sync, Nissan VQ35HR and Mitsubishi Colt 4g15. Added Astra CAN mode. Added Single-Point Every TDC Injection Mode to activate all injectors on every TDC for throttle body injection kits. Added CAN stream for Link AIM MXS Strada Dash. Changes Added 3D tables option to Closed Loop Lambda FTrim Limit. Added options to GPOutputs. Added Cruise Control power toggle switch mode. Fixes Remove unused settings from Kurofune and Monsoon. CLL dual channel mode now controls the second bank. AFR average is now averaged correctly. Add 3D Secondary Injection Deadtime table. Fuel Pump FP table now interpolates correctly. Knock Control High RPM lockout has been increased. Gear Status can now be written from CAN input. Fuel pump mode ā€œ80Hz 33/66/100 %DCā€ now reports duty cycle correctly. Cylinders 9-12 now trigger injectors when configured as Semi-Sequential Injection. Solenoid Idle Speed Control now shows status correctly. Stepper Idle Speed Control now stops at the Minimum Clamp. As always, make sure you save your basemap, do the firmware update, load your basemap, then do a compare to check changes. https://www.linkecu.com/software-support/pc-link-downloads/ Post any issues you have here, rather than starting new threads, or my favourite, at the bottom of a completely unrelated thread.

    Audi TTlink laptop connection

    Did you install a 120 Ohm terminating resistor? The CAN-Lambda Manual is available at the bottom of this page: https://www.linkecu.com/manuals/ It includes a specific diagram on wiring a CAN-Lambda.

    Can't connect via usb to ecu.

    Wait, so have you tried connecting while the ignition is on and/or the engine is running?

    Can't connect via usb to ecu.

    Unless CAN has been added, plugins only have 1 flying lead for USB coms (but hey, best to check) "unable to connect to the ecu but usb connection is present." means the USB chip is able to communicate with the PC. The fact the engine runs means the micro is getting power. So it's something getting in the way of the RS232 communications between the USB chip and the micro, usually this is something connected to the CAN1 connector on the bottom board and the unused RS232 TX and RX wires are acting as antennae.

    Improved Engine Protection

    Already do a bunch of this, have a read of this in the manual: G4+ ECU Tuning Functions > Engine Protection > GP RPM Limit

    fd3s help...... no crank signal. FFE - hall

    Trig1 isn't showing any signal, it's just sitting at 10V. Was the engine cranking while you pressed capture?
