First start up

First Start up / Getting started

 

Getting started / installing the Controller

 

First Connect, all plugs

Gearbox plug the big one direct to gearbox

Gear Lever Plug to Gear Lever

TPS plug, to TPS sensor

Boost sensor plug.

 

Then Connect Power

Black to Ground, make sure you have a good connection

Red to 12V Ignition Use an 8 Amp fuse.

 

Now before starting engine, you have to setup 0% - 100% TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)

PUT “W/S” in W position (if you have the Mercedes Gear Lever)

1.Power up, but do NOT start engine.

2.Press Joystick down to “SETUP”

3.Press Joystick Right, to enter this menu

4.Now you are in SETUP MENU.

5.Press Joystick down until "Setup TPS "

6.Press Joystick Right, to enter this menu

7.Now width 0% TPS press joystick UP

8.Then press throttle to 100% press joystick DOWN

9. PUT W/S in S position, and do point 1-8 again.

 

Gear Lever

PUT “W/S” in W position

1.Power up, but do NOT start engine.

2.Press Joystick down to “SETUP”

3.Press Joystick Right, to enter this menu

4.Now you are in SETUP MENU.

5.Press Joystick down until "Lever Setup "

6.Press Joystick Right, to enter this menu

7.If you have the 10 pin plug in the Gear Lever PRND4321. Press Joystick UP or Down to get “0”

If you have no plug for Gear Lever set to “1”

 

8.Press Joystick Right to save

9. PUT W/S in S position, and do point 1-8 again.

 

Load

For diesel engine Momentum of the engine is if there is mounted a boost sensor ´calculatet by TPS + Boost.

This means if a diesel engine has 250 Nm width no boost, and 100% TPS that gives around 33% momentum. When boost kicks in and boost at 2 bar we then have the rest 66% momentum = 750 Nm

For a Gasoline car it is different here we just only use TPS, 100% TPS is 100% load.

 

“Setup Parameter” -> “Load - TPS Boost”

Diesel cars where boost sensor is mounted, set it to 2.5

Gasoline cars 6 cyl set it to 1.5

Gasoline cars V8 or more set it to 1

When number Change it is saved automatically, no need to press right to save here

 

“Setup Parameter” -> “Boost Part Load”

Diesel cars where boost sensor is mounted, set it to 33

Gasoline cars 6 cul set it to 1

Gasoline cars V8 or more set it to 1

Here you have to press right to save after number is changed to wanted value

 

Shift Firmness at low load.

When you first drive the car, be wery aware how hard the shifts are.

If all shift are to soft. or to hard

“Shift Firmness” -> "General Firmness"

If shift are to Soft lover the number to get Harder shifts.

If shifts are to Hard higher the number to get softer shifts.

 

Please be aware that if shifts are to soft, it can give problems that a shift not complete and it stay in the gear it was in.

A little to hard shift is always better then a to soft shift.

 

 

 

External Speed.

The best is to have the controller setup to EXTERNAL SPEED SENSOR.

But as many of the old cars do not have any, the controller can work with the speed sensors internal in the gearbox.

 

"Use int speed/Rpm" (to deside if you are going to use External speed sensor or not)

In Software > 157 there is two seperet menu One for “Speed EXT/INT” and another for “RPM EXT/INT”

PUT “W/S” in W position

1.Power up, but do NOT start engine.

2.Press Joystick down to “SETUP”

3.Press Joystick Right, to enter this menu

4.Now you are in SETUP MENU.

5.Press Joystick down until "Use int speed/Rpm"

6.Press Joystick Right, to enter this menu

7.Press Joystick up and down to set it to “0, 1 or 2”

0You need External Speed and RPM

1 then you only need external RPM sensor

2 then both Km/h and Engine RPM is calculated, no external sensor needed

8.Press Joystick Right to save

9. PUT W/S in S position, and do point 1-8 again.

 

An external speed sensor is absolutely to prefer, as there is some limitation on the internal speed, as the speed can not be read while shifting.

 

After connected the External speed sensor, run the car slow 10 km/h and see what the speed says, in “LiveData” if it is not correct adjust in setup menu

"Adjust Ext Speed % "
