v1.0 - v1.1 / Re: My life, My coding
« Last post by Rx7man on September 18, 2018, 11:31:33 PM »
Sorry I've been absent.. life gets in the way of play..

had my engine apart to find out why the #2 cylinder is down on compression.. it looked perfect, talked to a buddy of mine, he thinks maybe a bent rod?  wouldn't explain blowby though that could come from all the cylinders..
I'm thinking of going back to the 60mm turbo while I deal with this to have more air and better spool.. reduce the smoke a little.

I just hauled a HEAVY trailer home, still has OK power, though not what it should be.. 10% hill a mile long I was still doing 55 mph at the top, 1300 EGT's but I was backing out.. a bit better turbo mapping could have helped me there, boost was falling off too fast as I backed off the throttle

Other news, my first gen went to south dakota and back to pick up a trailer.. I had 4 cows with pneumonia, One calf that one the darwin award by getting stuck in a bush in the dumbest way possible.  I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting.. it's been a busy summer

correct.. that way the actuator "feels" where the limits of motion are.

v2.0 / Re: version update questions

Yes, make sure you also install the libraries that are stickied into your IDE, or the code will not compile and error out.

v2.0 / version update questions

I've been trying to read up on Arduino.  I'm finally getting around to installing the lil black box i purchased last January and would like to update the box to your newest version but i'm unsure of how to do it.  I've got the ide on my laptop and have com with lilbb.  Do you just upload the sketch and it will overwrite what's on the libb?

Do you do the calibrate command with the actuator installed on turbo?
Thanks

R6 to gnd = 3.14 ohms  / r6 to r3 8.09 ohms. R3 to gnd = .8 ish.
R6 is measuring 60ohms

I have parts on hand to make another shield ATM so maybe a couple days, to get another out. Most likely that MCP chip is toast.

Check R6 to see if it's still 60ohm, and if it has a short to ground on either side.
Also check R6 to any part(s) of R3, that could be your VR problem.

The good news is you didn't + the ground bus. Also there really isn't anything near those traces and they are plated to 024 (oversized) however 60ohm probably not enough depending on how long it was hooked up this way.

thanks for the response, I basically used the numbers on the header plug .  so it ended up like this on the  header it self.   
pin 1,Bat + . pin 9 ,Gnd. Pin 8, can L . Pin 16 Can H.  pin 4 and 5 are VR sensor and were not mixed up.

I noticed the VR IC got realy hot , but I did power it up 3or4 times for a few seconds , the first being to longest at about 1min.  I didn't check any of the resistors or diodes to see if there done , nothing looks burnt or damage , just no response/action to the turbo.  and its stuck wide open @ 0 boost  :o

PM me if youd like also , ill check more often tomorrow.
What would be the lead time for a new shield?(trying to avoid that tho) 
Thanks
Cheers

Hmm I'll reply a bit later just letting you know I'm here. Just really busy.

What pins went to what when you first wired it ?
