Default MS2PnP NB1 alternator control not working what have I done wrong?

Hey guys,

Just fitted a MSpnp2 to an NB1, and the alternator is not charging, the documentation simply says that it controls the alternator but its not adjustable, as a result as far as I can see there is no info in the software for it and basically I dont know why it isnt working or even how it works.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Dann

it's a circuit built on the adapter board--it works independent of the CPU/software.

One thing to do is to make sure the tach output is turned on. If it is accidentally set to off, this will shut down alternator output.

Tacho output enabled: ON
Output on: TACHOUT
Speed: NORMAL

Any suggestions here?

Back from the dead, so Nitrodann did you figure out a way to control the alternator with ms2pnp?

To be specific, alternator control in the MSPNP Gen 2 is built into the one for '99-'00 Miatas, but is not a feature of the ones for NAs.
