Nate Anderson Posted October 7, 2013 Report Share Posted October 7, 2013 hey all... so I've had this issue with my vehicle for some time now. I've exchanged emails with Simon over it. I have an '85 VW Vanagon with a '06 Subaru EZ30rÂ and the Link G4 Extreme. had a few towing bills and my tuner check the FP wireing, a new FP new FP relay, new ignition switch. old ignition was tested good as well as the FP relay and voltage for the related wires. had it at my ECU tuners for 3 weeks while they checked circuts and found nothing wrong and it would not stall for them. they didn't bill me but still it's my daily driver so not exactly convenient. I finally took it back as it wouldn't stall so, difficult to diagnose. hadn't stalled for me since then till last thursday. well, it didn't really stall, just wouldn't prime the FP or anything. no start. had it towed and of course, started up and would not stall again. tonight I was about to go to the grocery and I think I may have eased out the clutch a tiny bit faster than I I pressed on the throttle and killed it. after this the FP would not prime again for several minuets...five or ten but you know it feels like forever. unfortunately, I'm the end user and chief dumb guy here so I can't offer much technical knowledge. I'm a bit spooked to hook it up to my laptop as I don't want to screw up anything. PCLink recently asked for an update on my desk top but when I hooked up my laptop to the internet, that install of PCLink didn't ask for the same update. just checked now and both versions are 18.104.22.1684 I don't believe the laptop has had any update so the original mapping my tuner did was most likely with this version. I can't think of any time it would have updated on my laptopÂ as I don't use it for anything butÂ this. I don't know if the ECU firmware is a separate thing from the PCLink software update I used to think it was stalling at deceleration, but that wasn't the case at either of these last times. also unfortunately, I have the link display, but there might be an issue with the baud rate and it will not get a signal from the ECU and I haven't had time to see if or how this can be fixed. I don't even have a standard tach hooked up. I hate to take this thing out on the freeways cause there's no good place to pull over. but it doesn't seem to happen ever at freeway speeds. I do feel like at idle it's turning really low r's and could be just easy to kill. but to me it should just start up again whenever I turn the key...I mean why in the world would it not ?!Â just this night when I killed it I also pulled the battery cable a few times to see if that helped anything as Simon had suggested that. nothing happened. and as I just mentioned, I can't see why it should not fire up again after it was killed from dropping the clutch with no throttle. makes no sense whatsoever to me. all I can think of now is at that last update notice there was mention of a change in fuel overrun cutout and that if my ECU firmware is indeed not current than maybe there is a fixÂ of some kind related to it in the update.
