Hrm,

I'd export your fuel table then import the basemap and then bring your tables back in.

Spark A output pin under ignition options should be set to IGN1, not whatever yours is set at.

I tried importing a basemap from diyautotune but still had errors and couldnt start. I will try and get out of work early tomorrow to do more tests. If you see anything else not right in my tune please let me know.

I know this is a dumb question but what does the firmware setup mean by "remove the ignition coil fuse" so I know what to unplug for next time. Which fuse is this?

Unplug the coils or unplug the ignitor, that's all you do.

Easy peasy, I think I'm going to try and reinstall the firmware tomorrow. It also said something along the lines of unplug the boot. Any idea about that one?

boot jumper, never have to touch it once you have something at all on it.

Occasionally you may need it if there's something really scrambled in the tune.

Is there anyone who can help me get the car started? Are there any vendors on the site that I could buy support from? I bought the MS 2nd hand so I dont know who built it.

Thats awesome.


Seriously though there is a test mode in TS to check your coils. You will here them firing when you enable it. No need to pull anything.

Maybe one of us could help if we were local to you

This is why I ****** hate tuners. Most of them make money off of tuning for flashes not standalone stuff. Im out in texas so I'm too far. Post up on the Miatasquirt Facebook page we have a lot of nice group members there that may also chime in to come help you out.

Honestly I am thinking of just buying a new MSPNP just so I can get the support. Waiting for a response from diyautotune now though.

Good luck with the support. By "support" they don't exactly mean over the phone engine tuning.

I cant find any markings or serial numbers. Also the shop that did the build put a sticker on it, not sure if that is covering something.
