    Problem trying to use ABS sensor

    Our digital inputs can already accept a VR sensor input directly, there should be no need to a VR conditioner unless it has a very low voltage or something? A VR conditioner will detect low voltages more accurately than a TTL input...

    Problem trying to use ABS sensor

    I needed a vr sensor converter for my lotus , I used one of these, worked well, still fine 5 years later. http://www.jbperf.com/dual_VR/v2_1.html Monit also do a converter, but I haven't tried it. http://www.monitrally.com/sensors/home.html

    CANBUS OIL Temp from AN8

    this info taken from the Link help file :- The 'Transmit Generic Dash' mode sends out a range of common parameters, it is useful for dashes that are able to have a custom configuration. The parameters that are sent are in the table below. Setting up the Link ECU: 1. Open the CAN Setup window (PCLink > ECU Controls > CAN Setup) 2. Select the CAN module to be used 3. Set the Mode to 'User Defined'. 4. Configure the Bit Rate to match what the dash requires. 5. Select a spare CAN channel. 6. Select 'Transmit Generic Dash' from the Mode drop-down menu. 7. Set the CAN ID to match what the dash expects. 8. Set the Transmit Rate to 20Hz or what the dash expects. 9. Make sure no other CAN channels are configured on the same CAN ID as the Generic Dash channel. 10. Click Apply and then OK. 11. Make sure a Store (F4) is performed. Setting up the Generic Dash: 1. The dash will need to be configured to match the data layout in the tables below. All parameters are sent as 16 bit unsigned numbers, with low byte first. Some parameters must be multiplied or offset (constant value added) to get the correct calibrated value. The limits flags are sent through as a bit field (described below).

    Software to use

    If you install the software and connect the ECU , once online with the ECU the map will automatically load. Then, look down the left hand side and expand the analogue inputs tree. Have a look at the an volt 5 function and see what it is assigned to. That might shed some light on the fault. Also, there is a drop down menu to see the fault codes.

    Setting up switch and wiring for launch control

    Also, without an arm switch, idle speed control would be disabled with the handbrake on. Not so important on a race car maybe, but unwanted on a "road" car.

    Setting up switch and wiring for launch control

    More like this:- On the DI you have selected, turn pull-up on, and On level = low. The switches are effectively a logical AND

    Setting up switch and wiring for launch control

    You can do, or you could wire the arm switch in series with the activation switch, wire the other side of the activation switch to ground and turn the pull-up on. That way you won't disable your idle speed control etc. when you want to use the handbrake normally. Hope this helps, Richard.

    Innovate LC2 calibration on cal table 1???

    try putting in the Lambda calibration . IIRC that's what fixed my problem.
  11. Richard Hill

    MAP sensor calibration 101-0069 MAP3

    What calibration have you selected for the map sensor? And what are the error high and low? If they are the same it will only ever show the error value. Does the an volt input value change if you blow into the sensor port?

    1JZ TPS

    Also,you might be falling off the bottom of the wiper, try mechanically adjusting the TPS to the other end of its slots and recalibrating

    turbo potentiometer

    As Simon mentioned, you will need to wire the output of the potentiometer to a spare analog input (with the other two pin on the pot wired to +5 Volts and sensor ground). AN Volt 4 is shown in the example below. Then select a spare Cal, I use 4 as it is a 2 point linear cal instead of a table. Next, in the cal settings choose % as the output unit. IT doesn't have to be %, you could leave it as 0-5 Volt raw. I would start with open loop boost control, as you will need to find out what duty cycle is required to achieve a particular boost target. In the wastegate %DC table, select the an volt input as the y axis and populate the table with the %DC required for each boost step required. In the example above I have used 50% duty cycle as maximum boost. That is the easy bit done! I would suggest looking at the help file for information about setting up boost control and when you are happy with the open loop mode, progress on to closed loop boost as this will give you more consistent boost levels which will be met and maintained by the closed loop algorithm. Regards, Richard.

    turbo potentiometer

    If you're running closed loop boost control, then set your Y axis on the target table to the analog input you wire the potentiometer to. Then change your target accordingly. Another possible option would be to set your potentiometer input to gear position and then use the boost in gear trim table. Hope this helps, Richard.

    Help required 1uz-FE on Link atom

    It sounds like your sensor ground wire might have a break between the ECU and the sensors. Try unplugging the ECU connector, and measure the resistance between pin 24 (sensor ground) and the engines sensor ground pins on the TPS or the ECT sensor. Pin 7 is also sensor ground but I use that exclusively for triggers. While its unplugged check you have low resistance between power ground pins 25/34 and the engine block (or head). I'm guessing these are OK as the ECU powers up HTH, Richard.

    Subaru knock problem

    That would depend on whether it is a false knock detection due to noise threshold or actually knock on cylinder 4 . As mentioned above it could be a fuel issue. Try swapping injectors between cylinders and see if the knock moves with the injector. If it is knock due to ignition then I would retard #4 a degree at a time in the individual cylinder ignition trim table. HTH, Richard.

    CAN bus start command

    2 more questions on the subject of CAN , is it OK to connect CAN 1 and CAN 2 to the same bus, and then use 12 CAN channels? The PC Link manual states in the CAN setup section:- ยท Byte Order - Configure whether the Most Significant bit comes first (MS first or Big endian) or the Least Significant bit comes first (LS first or Little endian). This statement seems to be ambiguous as bit endianness and byte endianness are two different things. Does it just bit swap or byte swap ? (from what i can gather i think its a byte swap only)

    CAN bus start command

    Hello, I am replacing a factory ECU with a thunder. In the original ECU the start command comes from the body control module (after interlock checks) via can bus. I will be wiring the thunder to control engine start via an aux out and a digital in, which input should I select in the can receive menu to enable can bus start? Many thanks , Richard.

    CAN bus start command

    Thanks for the reply Adam, it is a traditional style ignition switch with key and so works perfectly with a GP output. Richard.

    CAN bus start command

    I may have worked out the answer. I don't think you can use the PClinks/ECUs built in starter control with CAN inputs. But, I guess I can use a GP aux output with CAN digital status as an input ANDed with RPM <400 AND clutch switch depressed? to give similar functionality. Richard.

    Link G4 Extreme CAN Lambda

    As per title, will the CAN Lambda work with a silver G4 Extreme? If so are there any preset files I can use please? Many thanks in advance, Richard.

    Laggy PCLink software

    The window not displaying while dragging is probably caused by a scaling issue with a non native resolution and/or scaling setup in windows display preferences (or at least it was on my laptop)

    Setup Analog to Can Converter

    The PLX wideband digital output is RS232 in their iMFD format. 19200 baud rate, 8 data bits , no parity and 1 stop bit. It is output at 10Hz. They will send you a PDF file with details of the format if you ask them. So basically no it won't work over CAN... Hope this helps, Richard.
