Default powering mspnp outside of car

hey guys, just picked up a used mspnp 9093 and i just cannot get it to connect to my laptop. i spent all afternoon trying. is there a way to power the mspnp externally and try communicating with it outside the car? The car is powered by a greddy emanage atm and id rather not have it off the road for ages just because it wont communicate.

I have a gymkhana tomorrow and disconnecting the factory loom has erased all the factory ecus memory so idling is messed up now . id rather that not happen again.

yes, you can run 12v to 1B and ground to 2A,B,C,or D


the stock ECU doesn't lose programming.

yeah it will glow red. just be hella careful you use the correct pinage and then don't accidentally touch extra pins with the power supply.
