Software to use

Recommended Posts

Sorry just read that have put this in wrong section. 

Hey guys new to the link ecu community. Had my link installed in my 88 ford courier running an rb20det. Took out engine and repainted and put back in, pluged all in to find its not going. I do notice a blue light comes on then flashes a few times and repeated. I have spark and fuel but guessing this could be why its not running.

My question is what would this blue light mean and also i never got a cd to instal pc link software.am i able to download this to maybe view data on that and may have the problem 

Many thanks James

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.

Try clearing it and if it comes straight back it means whatever temp sensor is normally connected to AN Temp 2 is either dead or unpluggged (or wiring broken).  It will not prevent the car from starting though.

Managed to sort out grounding issue and got ute to start. My question is as soon as it fired up it reved right to limiter pretty much (dont have a tacho but pretty much sounded that way) i turned the tps either way to see if throttle was held open and still same issue. Would there be a setting i need to change to sort this out? Have attatched a pic of last reading noticing the tp main is at 52.6%. Cheers james

If the engine can rev that high then there must be air getting past the throttle.  Either the throttle blade is stuck partially open or you have a large air leak somewhere in the manifold.  Since the tps is showing an odd number I would be most suspicious that the throttle is open.  Pull the intake pipe off and have a look what is going on.
