No sync, car won't start. No triggers. Car stranded- help
Ok, I am not stranded, but car is about five miles from home at a supermarket.
I will be researching and thinking it over while making and eating dinner but after that I really hope I don't have to get car towed.
Car has been running fine for the past couple months, one of them turbo'd. I had a similar problem once and posted a thread about it (which I will now re-read).
So here is what is going on.
Drove all day today, probably put 200 miles on it. I had a problem yesterday where upon stopping hard, the car would die. I thought it was related to a vacuum issue with the power brakes but now I am not so sure.
Anyhow, stopped for groceries tonight and when I got back to the car it fired briefly and then nothing.
I plugged up the laptop and I am not seeing RPM on the megasquirt OR on the gauge. Also, I am not seeing either (cam or crank) trigger in any of the tunerstudio loggers.
Eating dinner then diving in. Any ideas and help would be appreciated.
