Crank sensor problems

Hello!

I´m doing an installation of a G4 Atom to my Ford 2L and I have problems to get signal from the crank sensor.

I have normal values from inlet air temp, watertemp, Map-sensor and TPS-signal. When I perform an ignition test it also works fine and I get a signal to the timing lamp. I have no errors in the Ecu. 

I have chosen Wasted Spark and original Ford 36-1 trigger wheel. In all cases I get the same result. I can see in Runtime Values when I'm cranking that signal changes from No to Yes from Trigger 1, but I can´t get any ignition spark and I don´t see any RPM-value 

I have tried following things without result:

1. I started with original Ford reluctor cranksensor. I have tried to shift wire. I have measured distance between sensor and trigger Wheel.

2. I have bought a new Ford sensor and also shifted the wires

3. I have checked the wires from the sensor to the Ecu (Black Cable for trigger 1)

4. I bought a new reluctor sensor from the Swedish dealer Motor Nord and have tried to shift wires again, measured distance etc.

5. I have in all cases above tried to decrease arming threshold  

What have I done wrong?

Please can you help me.

Hi Magnus,

Are you using a cam sensor on trigger 2? Because you are doing wasted spark ignition I suspect you are not. If you are not using trigger 2 you need to go in there and make sure the sync mode is set to None.

If this does not help feel free to email your basemap to tech@linkecu.com and I can have a look.

Cheers,

Scott

Any news on this case?

I do have same kind of problems with Storm G4. (Bought around 9 months ago from Sweden)

I have just now (finally) installed it to my friends ride and I dont get triggers either. No signal at all. I have checked wiring, sensors, software by simon etc. Tomorrow I gonna drive the firmware again, and if it doesnt help I'll try my own Extreme. If it works I really need to hope that Link has some kind of quarantee their products... 'Couse this Storm is brand new one, an used item wich has been lying on my bookcase few months...

Hi Marcus

I had same kinds of problems, here is how I get those solved:, Thanks Simon!!

-Getting signal from trigger 1

-Check TWICE that trig 2 is CAM setting or NONE (for testing)

-Shut down every tables that are not needed to get engine running. All boost and motorsport features specially.

-Still same problem? Connect trig 1 wires to sensor, to different pins. It is possible that your wiring is gone wrong way. ECU wants to see positive side of wave.

Put arming stress to level 2 and value tables to 0,2. Try. If you are getting no trig errors (ctrl F10-->tring error counter) try to rise arming streshold table until you are getting some. Then decrease for 1.

Now you should have RPM.

Is your crank reluctor type with 2 or 3 wires? If it with 3, that is shield ground. You can connect that pin to LINK tring 1 shield if you want but thats not necessary.

Is your trigger wires installed near (below 1cm) charger or coils? Or starter motor? If so, move it away.
