well...new ECU come in...tried it and still get the SES light.
I guess I need to turn it off and forget it's there.??
one or all of these changed to set causes the code
Kik, at this point I'm at a loss as to why you're getting the error code. But like we talked about, let's just go ahead and start calibrating. We'll attempt to get your fuel (VE) tables in line and see how much better driveability you can get. If it turns out that it's running to your satisfaction, then we can simply ignore the error code.
John, did a little searching around on the net.
Check terminal D3 of your ECM and make sure it's grounded. This can produce a code 41. Strange thing is that I don't see D3 on the schematic, but I've read a couple of places that say it needs to be ground.
The only other thing I can think of is that your chip guy accidentally used a V6 memcal to burn your calibration.
Cut the wire to the SES light...LOL
I'm kidding, don't do that.
D3 and D10 look to me to be connected to the same ground on the schematic.
TPI trouble swapper's guide over in trouble shooting..it gives two things that can cause a code 41.
1) tach signal interrupted
2) wrong or faulty memcal, or cylinder select error
He's getting engine rpm on the data output, so I wouldn't suspect an issue with the tach signal.
If his chip guy got hold of a V6 memcal and put a V8 calibration on it, the car would run, but it'd get a code 41.
Kik, maybe go on the thirdgen site and see if anyone has one of the following chips they can give/sell you. All of the following are V8 memcal broadcast codes that vary on engine size, gear ratio, and transmission. But it doesn't matter because we're going to erase it and put your calibration on top. What matters is that they're V8 chips. If you can get one for free or really cheap, it'd be a good way to prove that your chip guy used the wrong memcal. In which case, maybe you could get some/all of your money back??
These came from http://www.chevythunder.com/prom_bcc_1990.htm
When I was on the phone with Craig, he verified that the prom I have is for a V8.
I sent him a message letting him know the new ECU didn't solve the problem and he replied that he was going to send a new G1 for me to try,...I hope that fixes it because I'm out of ideas.
John, it's not the PROM. It's the rest of the memcal. That is to say, if you look at the memcal you got from your chip guy, it's the stuff on the other end of the memcal (there's some other circuitry besides the PROM chip). That's the stuff that determines whether you're dealing with a V6 or V8 memcal.
THere's one sure-fire way to settle this once and for all. PM me your mailing address and I'll send you a spare V8 memcal of mine. It's a known good chip because I've run it dozens of times myself. Once you get it, test it out with your Moates chip and one of the calibration files I sent you. If the code 41 disappears, then it was DEFINITELY your chip guy's memcal. After that, simply mail it back to me and then buy one for yourself (I'd let you have it, but I want to keep my spare just in case).
