    Default Adaptronic > Innovate MTX-L connectivity issues

    Hoping someone with good Adaptronic knowledge can help out here.

    Had my 20V 86 tuned this week in Melbourne. Makes good smooth power, 125hp at the wheels. But the tuner (and myself) could not get my Innovate MTX-L to communicate to the ECU (e420d). The actual gauge displays AFR, but no data is being transmitted to the ECU.

    Nothing is displayed on the Lambda graph in Eugene, and no TX/RX lights on the 'serial in' port of the ECU.

    Connected with the 4pin molex to 2.5mm serial cable, settings in Eugene as per Adaptronics instructions. Am I missing something? Faulty cable? Faulty 'serial in' on the ECU? I really want to be able to enable 'closed loop' for daily driving.

    Thanks,

    Shawn.

    Just to confirm ,the serial cable from the ECU is connected to the SERIAL OUT connector on the gauge.

    Yeah, correct. Ive tried both connectors on the back of the gauge.

    Still nothing coming up on Eugene.

    Use wari, its better for the old ecus, Ive found. See if that helps. What firmware is on the ecu? Use the version of wari that goes with it.

    Have you selected it on the correct tab in the software? Not seeing any gauge input on f2 window? Takes 20 or 30 seconds to warm up, and then you should have your reading. Try f11 and see if theres a voltage showing on its input.

    Failing that I think you can hard wire it to ecu if youre worried about the serial connectors.

    Cheers for the response.

    I was suspecting it could be a firmware issue. Can I download different versions of WARI to suit?

    And I've selected all the ECU settings as per:

    Solved...turned out to be a firmware / connectivity issue. And yes, WARI works much better with 'Select' ECU's.

    Cheers for the responses.
