Default LC-1 woooows

So me and hustler via phone decided to hook up my lc-1 a few days ago and to say the least it was a success worked great no problems at all! untill yesterday. Now out of no where it only reads maybe 10.14 afr max. So I check all my connections and they seemed fine. Also I had made the led switch deal, since mine didn't come with one to check if there were any codes, there weren't any (so it worked fine) I changed my grounds to a nut that I soldiered the ground wires onto. The power is spliced into the ecu power and the yellow output is coming from the existing 02 sensor wire. Now I've checked my configurator to make sure its on the innovative linear 0-5v 10-20 afr and it is, plus under basic settings, the exhaust section is set to wideband as well.. what is up do you think it's my power input? or plain f'ed up sensor? help me out here I'll attach my .msq even though hustler took a gander at it. Help me out here I'd like to have some mpg again..lol

This is why i hate the lc1. It might be the most accurate for the price, but its filled with headaches. The AUM UEGO is so pain free. I've used both, would never go with the lc1 again unless I got it for super cheap.

It was working fine when I pulled it out of my car. The O2 sensor should be fine for a long long time. How did you smoke the narrow band gauge?

yea like three times...but it was odd when I made sure the settings in output 1 where on afr, 0v = 10 afr and 5v = 20 afr it wouldn't let me burn them to the controller and there is no real way to check if it's burning the info so who knows..... bu ti will say this when i just pull down the fuel tab I have the option to burn the settings and I usually do but again have no way of confirming burn

Whats getting that incorrect reading megasquirt or the gauge that comes with the unit?

My first recommendation is to make sure the controller is running firmware v1.0. If is not, downgrade asap, its buggy ****.

My LC-1 crapped out on me once, and I got a replacement a week later. I've never had issues with it since or even beforehand, so I dunno what everyone's deal is.

It has version 1.10 and i looked under the firm ware for it at innovates web site and they only have 1.10 not 1.0, maybe there is something I'm missing on the install procedure through mega tune.

1.0 you can download from their forum, someone has a link.



You sure you got the outputs from the LC1 correct, and programmed them correctly? Using AFR and not Lambda?

The fuse for the ECU is 5A IIRC. So you are really stretching it.

I hook up LM programmer everything is fine, I'm close to selling it and getting a damn aem uego, please anyone with some last minute help let me know. the only thing i can think of is the sensor being bad, Has anyone had similar simptoms? thanks again
