I flashed the latest firmware, and the MAP response is now working again. :D

All I have to do now is to get the carb tuned properly...

Many thanks for the help,
David

Many thanks! I'm currently trying to refresh my memory regarding the way MJLT is configured... :shock: It's been working so well I've forgotten how to set it up! I've changed from TPS to MAP in the configurator, checked the 'normally aspirated' box, and saved it back to the unit. However, it still l...

Going back to MAP

Hi! First of all - I can say with some pride that I've now been running my Megajolt for almost 10 years on this car ! It's been so reliable that I haven't had to give it much thought over the years. :) My MJLT v3 is on firmware 3.2.1 - originally I ran it with a Weber DGV down-draft carb, and built ...

Been away a long time!

This not so much an introduction, more of a 'hello again!'. I haven't been on this forum for at least 6 years, probably more, so I'm really starting from scratch once again. Absolutely ages ago I installed MJLT on my Lotus-7-lookalike sports car, probably around 2007/2008, and it's been performing p...

Also... If you have a loop of wire it can pick up electromagnetic signals. If you have separate earths then stray signals can be picked up in the loop between chassis point A - MJ - EDIS - chassis point B - chassis - and back to chassis point A again. If you take all the earths back to one point the...

Now then i read on a certain speed of auto website that he made a knock sensor for tuning, but instead of your typical ecu controlled sensor, he used a small microphone epoxied to a battery terminal then bolted to the engine between bores 2 and 3, then connected the microphone to a small battery po...

Doh!

I didn't register what it meant until I read that! Shows how well I did in school chemistry, doesn't it... ;)

Do you REALLY want to use that stuff? It's fine if you never want to make changes to the wiring, otherwise it's a total PITA.

I would recommend split convoluted tubing - very neat, if done properly, and very easy to fix or adjust the wiring if you need to.

Just my 2p's worth!

http://trigger-wheels.com/store/index1.html is your friend...

...or you can go to Maplins and get general-purpose twin-screened cable a bit cheaper. Personally I preferred to use cable that was intended for use under a bonnet! ('hood', for the US of A readers! :D )

A multi-meter is your friend here! A cheapie can be bought in Maplins for just a few Pounds, if you don't have one already (or, if not in the UK, your favourite electrical shop). Set the meter to measure resistance then put it across a pair of pins and turn the TPS spindle. By trying various pairs y...

You say that it's not a good starter if it's been left for a while - how healthy is the battery? They do lose charge over time, especially if they're not so new. Mine has a maintenance charger permanently plugged in when it's in the garage - one of those 'intelligent' chargers that senses the state ...

I have a 1660 xflow with bike carbs + tps, and Megajolt. Mine starts first go almost every time, Summer or Winter! (but I'm sure you don't want to know that! :D ) I leave my plugs as they come out of the packet - 0.8mm I think - not sure what that is in Imperial. Maybe you need a bit more starting a...

The advantage of the triggerwheels one is that it can be mounted either way around, to suit the throttle spindle rotation - the one I had was one-sided, but fortunately it was the right side! :D

I wanted one to fit onto a Weber 32/36 DGV carb - went to a decent scrappy and got one from a Ford Escort/Orion (I think). Generally they are very similar - a screw slot each side of the round body - but the biggest issue will be the hole in the middle, which is linked to the throttle and moves the ...
