So I'm back again with more issues on this -
I purchased a brand new VVT box from DIY this week and I'm still in the same boat -
Attempts to start look exactly the same on the screen/logs as before -
I"m seeing the box, I'm loading the base map, and I"m attempting to start with jumpers off the ms2 board
Box has everything it's supposed to and is powered on -
So if anyone has suggestions on potential next steps for troubleshooting I would very much appreciate it....
Quick question - The car ran smoothly on the stock ecu before all of this
If the vvt solenoid was bad and I was running no vvt on the stock ecu would I know?
Would I have a DTC/LIght?
Would it run like crap?
Also are there any other settings in tuner studio I need to address here in order to make the vvt box function? Vvt box is powered thru ms2 but I'm doing all comm w it independently
Thanks to anyone, Chris
Another quick note -
Under the output trigger type option I have attempted to use all 4 settings
With none the car will not start at all
With 91-97 na the car will not start at all
With 01-05 passthrough the car sound like its going to start but sputter and make some really nasty noises
With 01-05 inverted the car will start and idle like crap - the target advance will read what's in the table but the cam advance will read -33 to-34
Using this guide -
VVTuner Standalone Programmable VVT Controller Troubleshooting Guide
on 01-05 passthrough attempted some of the troubleshooting steps
after looking at the log i've attached i thought i might need to go down the path of the 2nd problem listed
so i tried p=20 i=15 d=0
and i did that datalog
i changed the duty cycle limits to max 100% and min 10%
still same results..
some big questions i'm left with here -
what settings is output trigger type supposed to be on??? there are 2 for nb2? is this dependent on wiring in ms2?
i can only assume the crankshaft trigger wheel is correct - otherwise wouldn't ms fail to run the car correctly w/out vvt
can someone point me in the right direction of each pin and what it needs to be connected to on the board in order for this thing to work correctly? i have the plug pinout for the vvt box
i stopped by the local dealer today and discovered a new solenoid (vvt) is $310
i have a hard time buying that given the car ran before i installed ms w/ no issues
