Was trying a new chip out. Strange. Running super lean. hmm...
/me looks down at o2 sensor harness, red write (heater power) and black wire (ground) sheared off due to brittle ness.... after some vampire clamps, im back running...
Remember my ghetto resistor mod on my coolant temp sensor? well i wired it up best i can and setup the datalogger to coolant_temp value = getting OPEN_CIRCUIT signal now

This car has the big FU on wiring...
Oh well tomorrow i'll replace the entire coolant temp sensor harness i guess. Or put in all new wires for it.. Pissing me off.
Anyone else have a bad corrado day??

Re: GRRR sns car not having a good day... (SSj4G60)

yeah yeah thanks to all the nice people around here to help me out. The datalogger project is really showing its light now. If i can get my car sorted out perfectly, and tuned perfectly, we might start releasing it to the folks we've chosen in particular areas. Its a great deal of pain in the ass since you need to run wires into the cabin and all.. The chip i'm running now is working pretty good even in sensor failure mode (coolant_temp open circuit). More to come, maybe this weekend i'll have it ironed out ..

Well, after getting my Eurolight relay wiring sorted out...damn ND harness...my brake and ABS lights come on and I have no power brakes. I'm gonna check my brake fuses tomorrow...hopefully it'll be a fuse...but I'm gonna cry like a baby if it's my ABS pump.
