omg! my ecu is 5.6.6.3557,but my pc only 5.6.5,so, Who can help me give me a 5.6.6 link

Send an email to tech@linkecu.com and we can get you sorted. Or alternatively you can roll back the firmware to 5.6.5 using the 5.6.5 pclink. (firmware can be changed with our PC link not needing to connect)

Sorry, can you explain how? I didn't think you could connect to a newer firmware with an older version.

It’s exactly the same process as doing a firmware update, just you choose an older version from the selection box.  So, open up pc link but donot connect, if you use auto connect then just click ok to the pop up that tells you the software is version is too old or whatever.  Then ecu controls>update firmware as per normal.

Brilliant, that's useful to know.

Thanks.

Hello

Do you think possible with the firmware will be  ECU calculate the consumption of fuel?

We enter the capacity of fuel we put on car and the ecu calculate how much is used?

Motec & Magneti Marelli have this function.

thanks in advance

Hi all

We have found that the 5.6.6 software is not happy connecting to firmware versions prior to 5.6.5. and the tune can be lost if not saved prior in PC link 5.6.5. 

We have decided to remove this update from the website for the time until we can resolve the issue. 

 

Really glad I checked here 6 months after downloading and updating to 5.6.6; about to plug into a racecar this weekend and do not want this to happen. That would have made my day.

I install as updates come out so I always have a version to connect to clients cars that don't come from me. I never saw any email saying to not use it, or did I get one and only had a man look...?

Luckily I checked the Downloads page against my version to see if I had latest, was wondering why I'd have a newer one... and then found this thread. :unsure: Not cool.

If you have already updated you will be fine, I upgraded over 25 customers to this version before it was pulled, always back up your map before doping firmware updates.

Are we ok to run the 5.6.6.3601 in the downloads folder? I held off updating mine when I saw this post a few months back.

  • 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.

  • Surface Graph fixed for Nvidia graphics chipsets.

G4+ Firmware Version 5.6.6.3557 – 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.

Post any issues you have here, rather than starting new threads, or my favourite, at the bottom of a completely unrelated thread.

In G4+frmware  New Features you list  :    Added single point every TDC injection mode to activate all injectors on every TDC for throttle body injection kits. Can you elaborate on this please.

 Is this for engines with a single throttle body but with an injector in every port .  Is this a way to make the engine operate without a cam sensor. Is the injection still sequentially timed as opposed to batch fire when all injectors fire at once. If the injectors fire every turn instead of every second turn does the Link automatically halve the pulse width to compensate.  Regards,  John Appel

Hi John,

I dont personally agree with this strategy but it was added on request of one of our engineers.  The scenario it was designed for was something like the common American V8, 4 barrel throttle body injection kits.  These look just like a 4 barrel carburettor but have 4 injectors inside feeding 8 different length port runners.  The manifold designs that they use are often terrible for fuel/air distribution and charge robbing etc. The idea with this strategy was to fire all injectors together every TDC to try to get better distribution.  The bit I dont agree with is this means you are firing the injectors 8 times every 720deg, that means the pulse width is 1/8 of normal and there are 8 x deadtimes every cycle.  I can really only see it working on a low power engine with small injectors and you will need very accurate injector deadtimes.  This effect wouldnt be so bad on a 2 cylinder however.
