Freshly squirted noob needs a little help...
been floating around a week or so reading up on the MS stuff and now i need some help.
I've just (only today) fitted the MS in the car and have a couple of problems -
Idle control valve is disconnected. This is the only way the car will idle. When its connected the car idles normally for warmup then shoots up to 2.5k-3k rpm. I've tried the diode across the pins on the idle valve connector (as per the megasquirt build) however this makes no difference at all.
Went for a 25 mile (with the idle control valve disconnected) blast, dual carriageway, b roads and abit of traffic and the car seems fine, albeit running rich.
Am i doing the car any damage with this disconnected? I've checked my MS idle settings against a friends and they are the same, only difference is I have 1.8 injectors on a 1.6 engine.
I've fitted my wideband (Stack) yet i've been told i need to set the centre voltage, anyone know what these figures are? Or how to set up the Stack wideband with MS?
I'm a total noob with all this stuff and need simple instructions!
Thanks in advance guys, i'm sure they'll be someone out there who will no what i need to do.
EDIT - i'm using tunerstudio and its an MS DIY version 1.
