I had removed my MS PnP when I decided that the turbo would need to wait due to "economics"
and I started a new job where the distraction of tuning would not help….
This morning I returned the MS PnP to the car after removing stock ECU, the fuse and moving the CAS to the scribed stock timing location.
The motor had been running good when I removed it and had only shown idle issues and was getting along well with the lap top.
The car had also been running great with the stock ECU while the MS was shelved in the garage.
Now with the MS back in the game the car barely stated and fuel could be smelled from the tail pipe.
When I try to connect to the lap top I keep getting the “Would you like to work off line” message as if the laptop could not connect to the MS ECU.
I tried every port and every combination of turning off one then the other etc etc
Went to Rat Shack and bought a new USB to RS232 cable and installed the driver that comes with it but the lap top still does not talk to MS.
I tried to reinstall Mega Tune but I get a message: Unable to execute files/Mega squirt/tools install.bat Create process Failed code 267 The directory name is invalid
Last but not least I uninstalled the virus protection program that I had recently down loaded thinking that this may be interfering but the same thing happens.
I’m wondering if MS got a zapped by a lightning strike just sitting in my garage although I’m not sure that the issue with the lap top is related.
It is really weird !!! I got the lap top to talk to Mega log once but then it stopped.
Any ideas while I look more into this issue ?
