Ignition on? Needs to be on before you start startrek.

This is exactly what I experienced. I gave up. Please let me know if someone has a fix to resolve this.

Yes sir. Ignition was on before I started Startrek.

Best I can suggest is to try again then. You should see numbers different from the ones you see there on your screenshot (can't remember without the docs to hand but I think they start 60-).

Hi,

Sorry if this has been answered before, but is there a reason why I might be having a lot of stability issues with startrek? I have M2_10_4 and I am running it on windows XP (parallels on a mac) and I only ever get about 5 seconds of it running before the screen freezes and I have to control+C out and restart to get it to connect again. Doesn't it need a steady connection for a while to read any error codes? If so I won't ever be able to read any.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a dodgy connection to the ECU. If it loses sync, there's (damnit!) no way for the startrek to start talking again without restarting.

Worth checking the earth and the battery connections to the adaptor cable, but some ECUs just seem not to connect well.

Hi.

An old thread to awaken 8 years on but I have the injector light on and my coupe (20vt) is giving me starting issues.

I've connected startrek (version 1.01b) to try reading for errors (following the steps as per this thread) but I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. I get an ECU ID and preliminary info but no error codes.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks in advance

I've attached a photo of the screen I get when I connect.

The values don't appear very accurate confused

Thanks

Yeah, that's not connecting. Are you sure you're in the right connector? On a 20v it's usually in a clip on the front of the washer bottle.

Yes, definitely the correct connector.

After my initial post I re-read the thread and noticed another member had the same issue a few years ago &#9785;&#65039;

Could it be the 3pin to obd cable that's dodgy? Bought off Amazon, the cable appears to be correct. Does anyone on here have a cable which is known to work available to purchase?

Thanks

Could be... does your 3-pin adaptor have a single power lead or two? If two, it's probably best to connect both the red (to 12v) and the black (to ground) though the ground should be carried through the centre pin of the ECU connector.

As I've explained in another thread, I'm limited in the help I can offer at this point: I haven't used Windows since I wrote that code; my car in in the UK, and I'm in Germany. It gets tricky smile

I appreciate your time and help.

It has the red and black leads, I tried connecting just the red to the battery as well as connecting the red and the black but neither combination seemed to work so I've decided to return the cable on the assumption the cable is faulty.

I'll look into buying another cable and giving it another try unless you know of someone/a club member around Manchester who can help?

On a side note, is the fuel pump or the fuel sender unit known to become faulty on these?

From my limited knowledge, based on sound when cranking the car, it seems to be struggling for fuel (but currently has around 1/3 tank, so plenty).

Strange thing is when it does decide to start it appears to run without hesitation.

Many thanks!

Success!

Appears the cable is bought was at fault as I bought another cable and startrek now communicates successfully with the ECU.

Error code read and hopefully a rectification coming soon, means I can enjoy my coupe again driving

Many thanks for writing the software and for your help Neil laugh
