    I know it can be done as I have used two different segments from one OS and one starts without needing the starter relay and one needs it. Just need to narrow down exactly where it is.

    Hello hotrod,

    Given that the engine starts currently (but won’t stay running), try using the following settings:

    G1204 – Yes
    G1205 – Yes
    G1206 – No
    G1208 – Disabled
    G1209 – No
    G1210 – Type 2
    G1211 – Yes
    G1213 – Yes
    G1214 – 3
    G1215 – 600
    G1216 – Yes
    G1217 – 15.00
    G1219 – Disabled
    G1220 – Not used


    Regards,
    Taz

    As Taz mentioned above, we released a cal update to fix the starter relay issue. Just change G1220 to "Not Used". This seemed to only be causing issues on 2008+ OS's

    The VATS patch requires a “full flash” of the ECM. After that, you can use “calibration only” flashes for tuning changes.

    Check your parameters again, and try a full flash. Will take a look at your tune shortly …

    I did do a full reflash. Umm... It says i have applied it.

    I suppose i could try to do another full flash tonight. See what happens.

    Hello Hotrod,

    Try the full flash again. Tune looks OK … if the full flash doesn’t resolve the issue … this should not make any difference with an automatic transmission, but try setting:

    G1213 to “No” (clutch depress to crank)

    Gen III guy – not a Gen IV expert. A lot of what little Gen IV VATS knowledge I have, comes from reading Ian’s (gmh308) posts.


    Regards,
    Taz
