Default Help! megatune beeping and ging nuts on me!

I just installed my megasquirt following how to. When megatune connects to my megasquirt it starts beeping like crazy and the on screen gauges go nuts, it also says reset and counts up in the bottom right. Any ideas?

Do you mean the map? I am using one I got from diy autotune. The base maps in your build thread are gone. Thanks for any help man.

no, megatune is looking for 029q, you dont have that firmware loaded.

Well I figured out that I did not put the hr10 files in the right place, I left them in the hr10 folder. But the problem is still there, beeping and going crazy. Also the 2 outside leds on the megasquirt are lit up when the ignition is on if that means anything. Please help I need my car!!!

just reflash it again with the hr10 code, follow the instructions that can be found in the megasquirt thread,

I have this same problem on my mspnp. same error comes up when i open megatune with the ignition on. It then wants to close megatune. How do I fix this? I bought the unit used and I am just trying to get the car running on the base map to set the initial timing
