    Vipec i88 launch control

    Ok, I also have no clutch switch or hand brake switch ( had the clutch master out yesterday..it had no switch on it). The car did have race ABS unit which has since been removed before my ownership so will still have the ABS wheel sensors I think from memory.
  2. Just wondering how the launch control function works on the mini, I had seen the setting in the ecu and thought it might be handy in my mini challenge race car...my car has no ABS which means no t/c either. The one main thing I want to know is how does the car know when to go into launch and when not to?

    Plugged in the repaired ecu today, everything's back to normal with the ignition on....but not sure if it's normal because I can't quite remember, the EML light comes on while cranking..ok also the car no longer cranks for long, sounds like it comes to a jaming halt, so plug the laptop in to see if something needs to be cleared, still won't start or crank normally, pluggd in the mini challenge ecu, car starts fine (cant use it tho because e85 etc)

    Managed to get a spare original mini challenge DME from BMW NZ that they had laying about (pays to know some people) and plugged it in, fuel pump primed and temp gauge went back to normal..so I'm somewhat pleased it was a fault with the Vi-pec and I don't need to hunt for other issues. Ecu should arrive this morning to Link for testing

    Im looking as we speak to try and find out where the main relay is. There is one or two that are soldered on the back of the fuse box from what I can find 97 and ground works

    I checked with one of those light probe things and looks like it doesn't have power some how. How did the laptop register the USB when I unplugged re plugged it it?. I will have to try and find where it gets power from...will do a bit of research and try and find what to check and where

    Thanks for your help Adam...So no go with the g4 pclink, something about drivers are not compatible?..Shot up the road to BMWorkshop to give them the symptoms of no fuel pump and water temp going to the red when ignition is on. He said it's controlled by the dme which is now the vipec which sounds like it is the Centre of the issues..I'm not even sure I can run a standard ecu for the next race meeting because the car is tuned for end, not that I have the standard ecu

    Sorry, yes ivts. (Changed the tittle) All it does is say "searching" in the top right hand corner when connected..it has worked in the past...not all that clued up with the electrical side of the car
