Default Strange LC-1 problem

Hi all -

I've got a supercharged '93 with a MSPNP and an LC-1 wideband. Everything was working great for a while, but recently it's been running strangely and I plugged in TunerStudio to figure out why.

I was surprised to see that the AFR meter was pegged at full rich, no matter what driving I did. I didn't have time to deal with it at the time; I thought maybe I needed to upgrade TunerStudio since I just upgraded to Snow Leopard on my Mac. Today I upgraded everything, took the car for a spin, and discovered things were even weirder.

At first everything was working fine: AFR was reporting good values, as in the first attachment from below (all attachments are Megalog screenshots).

About 15 minutes into the drive, at the moment in the second log snapshot below, the AFR suddenly dropped to 10.286, and stayed within .2 of that value for the rest of the ride, no matter what happened to other inputs.

The rest of the drive looked like the third snapshot -- AFR dead rich, everything else looking fine.

I've checked connections on the LC-1 wires etc. Anyone got any other ideas?

Thanks ...

DJD

Your AIT looks really high. Do you have you coolant corrected air density set on AIT correction. If so it may be enriching it because of air temp. Where is your AIT sensor mounted.

I'm having a similar problem, but my AF ratio stays on the exact number. I don't have a laptop to log right now, but maybe we have similar issues.

Any error codes from the LED? (if you have it fitted)

I have a red indicator light that blinks continuously. It's solid when it works. DJDEVV, I'm not trying to threadjack. LMK if you want me to leave.

I guess I should have looked at the manual for error codes. DOH
