    New cable , no workie ......

    Got my new cable from Robert last week , tried it tonight .

    Followed this : http://www.gearhead-efi.com/Fuel-Inj...to-TunerPro-RT

    Plugged into the laptop , it automatically installed the drivers and assigned COM7 to it.

    Went into Tunerpro , Tools , Preferences , Data acquisition , set Com7 and tried to test , says cable not found or functioning.

    Plugged it into the '7060 in my 454SS and it will not connect .

    I know it has to be something dumb , but anyone got any ideas ?

    Thanks

    I've had issues with cable installation and that write up has helped a lot of people. I'd try to restart PC, reopen TP, always use same USB port that your originally installed the cable on and try again. Double check Com port on PC with cable plugged in and double check TP settings. Sometimes the cable not found test does work and sometimes not and cable will still work?

    depending on what type of cable you were using before, download the most recent drivers to be certain the correct ones are being used.

    OK,

    I restarted the laptop (Windows 7) , no dice.

    Did an uninstall and plugged the cable back in , it was recognized immediately and drivers were installed , it set COM port to 7 just as before . Tried the test in T/P , no dice. Plugged it into the truck ('7060 , 1992 454SS) , no connection.

    Downloaded a different driver , installed , cable test in T/P failed again , plugged it into the truck , no connection.

    I know Robert tests these cables so I know darned well its not the issue , I am doing something wrong , just don't know what it is ....... Mad

    Don't even attempt to plug it in to the vehicle until you get a "Found and functioning" result. You're just wasting time doing so.

    You might want to try setting the com port to a lower com port. I know V4 had an issue if the com port was above COM9 for a while. I haven't experienced this issue with V5, but you never know. Yes, I know 7 is less than 9, but I find that a lower number com port seems to connect easier, not sure why, it just seems to.

    There might also be something else (program) that uses that same com port and it may not be letting go of it completely, so assigning a different com port will also get around that.

    Yes, liek I said it was V4 with the issue, and I've been up to 11 or 12 without issue, but it's something to consider.

    Too late , sorry I already tried it when Mark said sometimes it tested OK and sometimes it didn't.

    I've NEVER had connection when I didn't first get a "Found and Functioning" result. I've tried sometimes too. ;)
