Checked every jumper, and they're all correct. The only one that may be off is the fan, which may be why the fan turns on when the firmware flashes.
I have the one end of the wire in 1R as I'm supposed to, and the other in this ALED by the High Current Driver Select. Currently attempting to reload firmware and tunes to fix my no tach signal, but am now having trouble connecting the MS to my computer. I'll get that figured out.

Firmware and tune loaded and match,
that's all good.

My problem is a lack of spark, which means my coils aren't getting power, which means the tach signal is non-existent.

Also, I forgot to unplug my ST SIGN fuse after starting the car on the stock ECU to make sure everything worked still. TIP125 transistor or BIP373? FP to GND trick is useless to me at the moment, as the car doesn't even catch. So I have no problem waiting for a new transistor.

Did you unplug the coils while loading the firmware? Just jump the FP to 4O and connect the two pins on the AFM connector like so:


Use the composite logger while cranking to check if you're getting the crank/cam signals.

Hmm. I believe I did unplug the coils. As far as the AFM plug goes, I'm still running the AFM. No IAT sensor yet. I will try to check those though.

So, I tried the composite logger. Not exactly sure what I was looking for, but there was no activity while cranking.

Can it be agreed upon that the fan should not be running while the firmware flashes?
