Software / Re: WOT - shift cut time set to 1020 issues
« Last post by Morty on October 03, 2022, 05:41:20 pm »
I have the same issue on firmware 1.2.38. Which firmware version should I go for. A local VEMS dealer updated to this and said it was the one he recommended.

Configuration / Re: Shift cut, fixed ignition Fw 1.2.38

Found the setting in the menu for Ignition setup. There was a setting not allowing the ignition to go lower/later then 0. I adjusted it to -20 and now it works.

Configuration / Shift cut, fixed ignition Fw 1.2.38
« Last post by Morty on August 15, 2022, 10:26:57 am »
I’m trying to setup my shift cut and when setting the fixed ignition to 20˚ ATDC, the ignition goes to 0,5˚ ATDC when shift cut is active, same if I set it to a higher degree ATDC. If I set it to 0˚, it goes to 0˚.

Is there a setting elsewhere affecting this or there is a bug in the software? Anyone who knows?

Wiring & Sensors / Re: TPS 5V Dropping after 15-20mins running
« Last post by jrussell on August 12, 2022, 05:59:20 pm »
Had some good discussion on this in the VEMS Users Group facebook group, but summarizing here for history/search purposes.

Pin 29 is a voltage divider. It shouldn't drop voltage unless there's a significant current draw on it. Is the TPS the only device on pin 29?

Does pin 28 (a 5v voltage regulator, not voltage divider) exhibit the same? Are there devices on pin28 now? If not, you could use that to see if the behavior follows.

I have seen where a bad (non-compliant) USB to serial cable pulled pin9 low on the db9 port... after 5-15 minutes. This is used for 5v power for the bluetooth devices and is standard in the rs232 spec. This is verified to not be the case in this instance, but just pointing out the possibility.

Wiring & Sensors / TPS 5V Dropping after 15-20mins running
« Last post by Mikkson99 on August 11, 2022, 07:37:22 pm »
Hi. I've got a m50 turbo, with VEMS v3.

I got a problem; After 15-20 minutes the TPS 5V supply will drop to around 2.6-2.7v and the ECU don't get the rigt readings.
Happens every time. Taught it may be the low voltage, when I didn't hav an alternator yet, but that did not help. Testet latest today, with 14.v on the system.

Measured same voltage both at TPS connector and EC36/29, so I guess the wire is fine. Also measured the wire end to end, 0.7ohm, and to ground - OL...

Also I was suspicious that the TPS itself where bad, as it was a "UAES" china copy thing. Got hold of an OEM BOSCH, but that didn't help neither.

Does anybody have a clue at what is happening/wrong?

Ignition / Re: Using the Stepper Motor Driver to control Ignition
« Last post by s14nismo on July 26, 2022, 12:53:20 pm »
Hi All, its been a long time since i needed to enquire on here, so excuse my ignorance, but i'm resurrecting an old VEMS SR20DET project... My standard nissan COPs are currently driven via the Stepper motor driver (and via the Stock ignitor) but they are now showing signs of failure, so my question is...
Can someone confirm if the VAG COPs (i have some NGK R8 U5014 available) can be driven by the same stepper outputs with no modifications? (with the stock ignitor removed of course).

Configuration / AlphaN vs RPM(KPA) based ignition
« Last post by psychip on July 23, 2022, 09:35:05 pm »
Hello guys, my setup is fiat coupe 2.0 16v wasted spark+dual injection. currently my VE table based on kpa (rpm) but ignition Y axis still reading from TPS.

my problem is engine extremely overheating, my primary suspect is ignition advance. so my question is, should i switch to kpa/rpm instead of tps or just reduce the values of ignition table?

the configuration file is attached

Software / VemsDisplay Android Bluetooth but no data
« Last post by M3GTttHulk on July 15, 2022, 05:46:08 pm »
Hi guys,

Vems V3 running on firmware 1.2.43
Powered bluetooth adapter

Android tabled finds the bluetooth adapter, VemsDisplay connects (green connected) but it seems to be connected also when the car is switched off.

Switch the car on, power up the V3 but no data is beeing fed to the VemsDisplay

Any ideas?

Ignition / Re: "Short" VAG coils don't want to fire..
« Last post by ScareMercy on June 30, 2022, 09:09:46 am »
I've tried a new Audi R8 coil yesterday to see if it makes a difference but that one also doesn't fire.
However, upon measuring the voltage on the signal wire during rest it reads 0,55V while it should be a ground. Is this voltage too high for the coil to reset itself?

Ignition / "Short" VAG coils don't want to fire..
« Last post by ScareMercy on June 28, 2022, 12:13:09 pm »
Hello,

I've tried getting my "Short" VAG COP's to fire since a couple of weeks, unfortunately without any luck. All 4 COP's are brand new, they're BERU ZSE030 coils.

So far I've tried the logic level outputs and stepper outputs, checked the pinout knowing it is differtent than the longer VAG COP's (Pin 1 and pin 2: ground on cylinder head, Pin 3: 12V,
Pin 4: Signal from VEMS). I've tried testing the configuration using a LED; the LED blinks briefly. I've also tried supplying 12V to the signal wire of the coil for a short moment; the coil fires on release.

So far so good, except that the coils won't fire in test mode or while cranking the engine.... I've tried contacting my VEMS supplier and have gone through the whole setup again, but still no spark.

Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction? I've been at it for 3 weeks now and am completely lost in what to do now.
