Default wideband issues

i have a DIY JAW unit from 14point1 and im having issues

idling my car idles at 15-16 afr, car idled for 10 minutes to warm up before i drove it (cold night)

i went up the road, and afr goes to 12.2 boost, and 17 cruising, but mainly averaged 14-15

after driving for 5 minutes and making some pulls, the display jumped to 30-34afr and stayed there, i rebooted the wideband and it dropped to 19afr for a second then went back to 32-34

the o2 is located 2ft down the downpipe from the turbo.

any ideas?

Blink codes? Any status lights like the LC1 has?

i hate widebands they seem to break really fast. that way i use them since i used to tune a lot of hondas. street tuning so everything would be installed temporarily with alligator clips, zip ties you name it. anyway my lc1 was reliable but would mess around too much have to play with it to make it work. then i got a zetronix and it was awesom not a single issue until now its not showing anything at all on the mobile display. i have yet to try hooking to a lap top to see if it reads anything..

if your lc1 has no codes they do offer sometype of warantee you can send it back and they actually service them. or at least they used to when i bought mine.. check the innovate motor-sports web site for more info
