Runs w/o advance and will not communicate with laptop

Post by manx3094 »

My VW motor runs but the ignition will not advance. This system has been in use for about 3 years or so. When I got the car out this year it just didn't seem to run very good.
I cannot get the laptop to talk to the MegaJolt.
I checked the advance and there is none.
I have gone through the "verifying signals" section and everything seems to check out except EDIS PIN 1 to ground should be 12 volts with the key on and the engine off. I have just millivolts.
I have about 5.5 volts with the engine running at this position.
The green light is illuminated on the MegaJolt.
Any suggestions?

Did you make any progress on this or are you still stuck?
