Default Problems with panel meter wideband gauge.



What am I doing wrong here? Ive got it set up to read as 10:1 as 1v and 19.99:1 as 2v but the output 2 wire is only putting out .04 (confirmed with volt meter)

The wideband is reading correctly on output 1 and in logworks but just cant get the wire for the gauge to work right. (gauge reads 1.2v as 12v)

Any ideas?

Have you tried using the other output just to test? I've heard of LC-1s screwing up one of the outputs before.

How much was that panel display? The only one I could find was outrageously expensive so I rolled my own:

I tested it, it's putting out 3 something at idle I believe? Idk it's working properly but didn't want to unwire the megasquirt.

Just sent the seller an email and asked for decimal to be adjusted. They have great cust service, it just takes a couple weeks for shipping

Sooo... bringing this back from the dead. Would there be any harm in attaching the display to the working output and just setting the main output to 1-2v=10-20 afr and just telling the ms to use that? I noticed that in tunerstudio there is an option for "innovate 1.0-2.0" would this possibly be the same thing?

I think you'll lose resolution, megasquirt inputs are setup for 0-5 volts... and going 1-2 volt effectively limits the precision by a fifth.
