I have searched and searched and searched, had help from various people back on MX5CARTALK over here in Aus.
Still no luck
My issue is this,
I received my Braineack DIYPNP, on hooking it up it connected to my laptop just fine.
Car would not start but that was solved with a quick REQ fuel issue.
It worked that day.
The very next day the car did nothing.
I could not connect to the MS, nothing was happening.
I noticed that on the first day, i could hear fuel running in the engine bay through the rail when ever the ignition was on.
Now i hear nothing.
A friends NA6 with a Braineack DIYPNP has this fuel running noise too so that must be normal.
So i assume something has gone bad.
I sent the MS to our resident Expert who tested it on a bench and said it all seems good.
If i use a 12v wall adaptor the unit powers up and connects to my laptop perfectly. So i agree with him.
If i suck and blow on a vacuum hose (yes odd i know
), Tunerstudios reacts to this input.
As soon as it touches my cars harness, DEAD.
I tried the unit in my brothers NA6 to make sure it was not my car. Same thing. DEAD.
I have tested my harness in my car and am getting 12v, which should have been obvious by the fact my stock ecu runs perfectly.
I have pulled the MS out of its box and tested in the car and i am getting 12v on the lower edge of the main board, i am also getting 5v from the 5v next to the 12v.
When i use the 12v wall adaptor i get 12v for a about 2 seconds up top for the fuel pump then it drops to 0v as i believe it should.
When the MS is in my car i only get 5v there and only for a quarter of a second. Like a flash.
Does anyone have any further ideas??
i would be ever appreciative.
