Re: Inputs over canbus? Cockpit expander

Is it a firmware thing? Or an actual hardware issue with the s6? I assumed because it was used in pnp kits that it would be possible, but assumptions get you no where haha

Re: Inputs over canbus? Cockpit expander

Just bringing this back to life as i can't help wanting to play around, I noticed someone mentioned this in another thread and it sounded pretty interesting. https://www.ecumaster.co.uk/can-switchboard Has anyone used one before? To keep it cheap I'd want to avoid buying the USB to can tool for prog...

Gear Blip Settings Info

I have 2 large bypass valves installed for antilag, I decided to see if they flow enough air for a gear blip and they do. I have made a switch arrangement so i get my usual gear cut with the clutch alone, and a gear blip request when i am on the brake and clutch Just after some terminology translati...

Re: Wiring led from ecu output - constantly dim

I was actually going to try throwing a 1k resistor in parallel with the led just to see if that would pull it away enough, I know the current wil be negligible, I have some other values I could try too. I can do it inside the shift light as stated I have gutted the inside. I actually have another sh...

Re: Wiring led from ecu output - constantly dim

Thanks Tim
I have some cheap Chinese 20a solid state relays, bit large physically but I guess it would save me buying anything else!

Re: Wiring led from ecu output - constantly dim

Would a transistor work? Using the ecu ground to trigger the gate? If so what transistor would be best?

Re: Wiring led from ecu output - constantly dim

Thanks for the reply.
I thought about putting it through a small solid state relay actually, probably the only way to fix it!
Thanks

Wiring led from ecu output - constantly dim

Long story short I stripped the guts from a shift light because it was inaccurate and connected it directly to the ecu, obviously the internals of the ecu allow some current to flow in the off state, enough to make the led dim constantly. Shift light works as expected at correct rpm. What can I do t...

Re: Bosch 2-wire TBV settings

I never noticed this thread had carried on, however I find it interesting about installing diodes on the idle valves if it makes them perform better. I use 3 wire valves, so would I use 2 diodes in reverse bias from the 12v feed to each of the pwm controls from the ecu? I have 2 valves in parralel t...
