I was driving and bam, It died. Now I tried to reinstall my firmware, and It won't let me. I have been looking at the manuals and nothing is coming up.

you dont need a bootloader jumper, just reflash the firmware using the .bat file

Dang. FWIW I searched for nearly an hour in an attempt to find the boot jumper.

IIRC MSPNP uses 3.57SMD Board, and I can't find ANY info/pictures on it. Isn't that a board DIY designed and built?

My absolute best guess would be the jumper just to the left of the processor in this photo:



Seems logical, thats about the location of it on my MS2.2 and IIRC the 3.0 also. Good luck! :(

rofl. i went to megamanual.com, clicked 3.57 SMD Main Board, and saw the picture of the SMD with the boot jumper clearly labeled in under 5 seconds.

yes, it's the jumper to the left of the CPU, labeled: boot.

It's on the main board, to the left of the CPU, just above the +5 and GND points. It's labeled "BOOT"

Hmmm. Page clearly states:
"This site contains an archive of the early versions (circa. 2003) of the hardware and software documentation for MegaSquirt® EFI Controllers.
It remains here primarily for reference for older board versions and code (and to prevent dead links)."
Yup...

<-- Has MS2.2, not a 3.0 or 3.57.. So that link is all I have bookmarked.

I tried, at least. Correctly identified the boot jumper too

We finally found it at 1:30 after I posted.

Whole story!:
My little brother and a buddy came down. I took them to the drag strip. They where headed home and his car died while driving down the freeway. I go to check their car out. And when I reach the exit my car dies while driving down the freeway. I get out, and they are directly across the highway from me waving..............LOL

Well, I had hit a huge bump in the freeway and my computer cable poped off and the computer died ( has no battery) but the car still had power and died simutaniously, . So I reloaded the map no good. Reloaded firmware. Now the car is still just strating and dieing. New plugs, same thing.

Know I grab the spare fuel pump. It starts and runs. I'm heading home, the tach is bouncing, and it is spudering. And bam it runs great. I get to the exit of my brothers, It dies. I roll off the road, and as I am stopping there is another truck dieing and stopping on the side of the highway.

I guess my car is simpathetic of other cars.

I grounded the plug to the head and their was spark, grounded it again, no spark. I think it is the CPS (CAS).

I'm going to swap the igniter first from another car. And if it is the cas. i'm putting a brand new one on it.
Those things gout out without notice, and they act like a hundred different things.

Autozone $330, Orielly's $478. And there is no rebuild kit.

If you know of a rebuild kit, or a cheaper place, please let me know!
