    Default Error message after attempting to create new PID list

    I just recently created some new Calc pids. Everything looks fine with them, basically I added a CALC.EOP (psi) using GM.EOPS (V) and the equation you provided.

    I open my normal PID list, add those two parameters, GM.EOPS, and CALC.EOP to my list and save the PID selection list. I hit the monitor data button on my laptop and I got an error. The bug report is attached here.

    Also, a few other related observations. If I closed hte Scan software, and reopened it, it did not save my newly selected parameters. I tried this several times. I re-added those two parameters, and resaved. Then I'd close the program and reopen. The parameters were not saving.

    Another possibly related observation. In my calc_pids.txt file I have the description of CALC.EOP listed as "Engine Oil Pressure". However in the Scan software it shows the description of CALC.EOP as "Engine Oil Pressu" I have no idea why its cutting it short. There are several other descriptions that are longer.

    Possibly missing the closing quote on the description.
    I'll look into the other errors you reported.

    KD, post the file(s) where you made those changes.

    Add a blank line at the end of the file. EFLive needs to see an end of line marker <CR><LF> (carriage return, line feed) at the end of the last line.

    Do you think that is the solution to both the display of the description AND the error when I try to monitor data AND the PID list not saving properly? I'll test it out when I get home, but just curious what you think.

    It is probably the solution to the display error, but I doubt it will solve the PIDs not saving error. What happens if you manually try to save the PIDs file, using the Save icon just the left of the PID file name on the [PIDs (F8)] tab page?

    That is how I was attempting to save the PID file. Is there another way?

    If you change PID selections and then close the Scan Tool software, EFILive will ask if it should save the file for you.

    You can edit/view the *.pid files using Notepad, they are just plain text files. if you change PID selections and then go look in the saved file do you see your changes?

    Do you get an error message when saving the file?

    Is EFILive loading back in the same PID file that you are saving?
    There is a setting in the Properties window [Startup] tab page, that controls which PID file gets loaded in at startup.

    I'll have to try looking at the text file when I get home.

    No error messages when saving the file.

    EFILive is loading the same PID file that I'm saving, however it looks like its opening a version of the file from before I saved it. The parameters I just added are not there. I tried saving it as a different name and still the parameters are not there when I reopen the EFI Live.
