  1. Was there ever a solution to this? Twice I have gone to download my log after a track day and it just shows 00:00 log like it has been re-set. It will create a log if I start the car in the shed or go for a little drive so know it is recording just fine. I was thinking how long does the ECU store the log for when un-powered? From when I turn the kill switch at the track to the time when I get home to download the log file from the track it can be 3-4 hours. Would that be enough time for the ECU to clear its memory? Thanks, I just have an Atom G4+ if it makes any difference.
  2. Excellent thanks. Well looks like i have got enough info to give it a go. Cheers. Good tip about stacking the virtual aux's to give even more options.

    Check engine light

    Hi All, I am hoping that someone can help tell me if I am on the right track for my old NA pinto powered escort. I am running a g4+ atom and don't want to use up more outputs if I do not need to but I think I need some kind of check engine light. It turns out I ran my last event with the intake air temp senor not plugged in so it defaulted to 150°C. I have checked and luckily the maps only reduce fuel under 50% throttle (not much of the day was spent below 50%) but it did pull at least 5 deg advance everywhere. I have also recently installed a GP output on a spare ignition channel which I am using as a simple shift light (eg. SW Cond 1, RPM >6500 rpm). My question is can I use the same shift light to show the CE light aswell. How I think I am going to do it is using COND 1 or 2 as the switch logic and with SW Cond 2 set as Aux Virtual Valve1 = ON (CE light is not an option here). I can then set Virtual Aux 1 = CE light. Am I then right in thinking I can set the Parameters low/high warning values to turn on the "shift light" through the CE light system? The other way is to just set my own limits by setting Virtual Aux 1 = GP Output but I will only get 3 limits doing it this way (Cond 1 or 2 or 3). Cheers, Jono
  4. Thanks guys. I think you are right just leave the calibration for now. But I will back it up incase I ever do it. ClintBHP good spotting on the mk2. Yea gives me somthing to do at nights.
  5. Hi guys, I had my car tuned late last year and it is going great. When the tune was done the idle was a little low around 500 RPM. We left if as we did not have the tools to wind up the mechanical idle stop. (I am not running any kind of idle control valve). I can achieve a good idle at about 2% throttle. If I wind up the mechanical stop to the point where it is idling nicely (2% throttle) and re-calibrate the throttle will it put the tune out as now the old 2% throttle has become 0%. I understand the 100% position will remain unchanged. As it is running ITB's and the load axis is the TPS, will this cause me some issues in the low percent throttle areas or are the differences so small that it does not matter? Thanks
  6. No luck with (5.6.1), I have emailed ya. Thanks for having a look. Here's hoping I have done something wrong.
  7. Hi Scott, just tried the factory reset, still no good. I just get the first error. I might just have to hide a laptop under the seat to get some good log info.
  8. P.S found out how to save my layouts, I see it was right in front of me.
  9. Scott my ECU serial is 22855, a couple years old I guess but has only done about 20 hours work, sat in the box for a while, Simon I tried the update, still no help only now I only seam to get error 1 and can not move on to the log file manager at all. On the update process, is there a way to keep my PC link layout/setup. I get all of the resolutions and gauges the way I want and then every time I update the software they are gone again. I really appreciate your help. Cheers
  10. Hi has any one had these errors before and know how to sort it out. I never had them before my last firmware update, not sure if something has gone wrong in the update. When trying to retrieve a log file from the ECU the first time to try I get error 1, if I try again it normally lets me progress to the log file manager, I then get error 2 and am unable to see the log file. I can sometimes download the log file if I play with the start/finish times that I am trying to download. Here's hoping there is not some kind of corrupt memory in the ECU. ECU is a Atom g4+ MainCode Firmware
  11. Hi Guys, I have looked and can not find a thread so let me know if this is a double up. I have a 2.0 ford pinto engine running ITB's and have found tuning using the TPS the best option. The MAP senor was just way too inconsistent. Now that I have it running on the TPS should I be looking to change all of the maps AFR, ign etc to be driven from the TPS as well? I am eventually going to take it into a local tuner to get a descent tune but it was never run in and has been sitting for 8 years. I just want to get it running and loosened up first. Cheers Jono,
