  1. With version 1.23 we will move the remaining "rapier transmission" parameters out of the development section and put them into the "ZF 6HP PCM Parameters":
  2. @Superb I have added the extra parameters you require to the Enthusiast and Professional packages. Download the latest 1.22 from the web site and you should be able to log these now.
  3. Hi itcy, I had a car that was tuned elsewhere and it did the same thing. First point of call is to check your injectors are dialed in properly. Mine was sitting around the 270rwkw and it went to about 320rwkw on the baby turbo at 14psi.
  4. haha, I agree. Unfortunately the motor trade wrote the specifications for J2534 specifically for Windows and then developed all the software based on that specification.
  5. To clarify using bootcamp and running Windows native works fine. I did this on my Mac a few years ago. Doing anything in a VM environment was where the drivers had issues so we decided not to support it (as well as the reasons @Roland@pcmtec mentioned). Simply partition the disk and boot Windows native.
  6. License is on a user/account basis so you will need to license the file to edit and flash it using your your account. Having said that and assuming the tuner who did the original tune did not tuner lock it you can read the tune out and edit it without licensing it. The changes you make will be stored in the file and can be shared with other PCMTec users. When you want to write the updated file into the vehicle the vehicle must be licensed.
  7. Before you start on trying to find out if there is anything wrong with the calibration on a car that was working please ensure the Brake Switch and Clutch switches are working properly. It is quite common that they fail and the cruise control will not operate if either of these switches is on.
  8. Bosch Green 42 lb injectors work well on the scaled factory turbo injector data. Just scale it up so the high slope is around 48lb/hr. I have already posted up injector data that works reasonably well for the Siemens Deka 60s:
  9. It is on the list for a future release. And the DTC reading is on the list to be fixed as well.
  10. Hi Will, quick question are you using the latest beta 1.21 release available from your downloads page: https://pcmtec.com/downloads
  11. Hi effxr6t, You can reduce the number of parameters shown by opening a tune and using the View Menu: For example you could un-tick Professional, Workshop and OEM Areas and there will be a reduced set of parameters to edit. You should be able to do most of your tuning with these parameters. With regard to separating the Editor and the Scanner we are looking at that as an option.
  12. Will have a look but all modules will see it as it is broadcast type message. Also seems to be the only spot where the mk2 sends the cranking flag and is in BF, FG Mk1 and mk2. Have not checked the BA yet.
  13. Last byte has two flags: 0x01 = Brake Switch On 0x04 = Cranking in Progress Byte 1: rate of change of RPM vs time [maths equivalent d(RPM)/d(t)] Byte 2: Throttle Percent Byte 3: Pedal Postition Byte 4: Hill Descent Flags Bytes 5 and 6: Engine RPM Byte 7 is a flag to clear malfunction fault codes Byte 8 as above
  14. Nigel, Can you check on the FG2 if the cranking flag in msg 12D silences the alarms?
  15. Some Alarms like low oil pressure, seat belt warning and the lovely locking of the doors if the customer has that set up MK2 FGs do not have message 200
