Hi just hooked E6k up to my VL Turbo (rb30et). I used a plugnplay Patch loom from the E6X to do this.
When i resieved the patch loom it said it had been modified to work with my E6K.
Now i have bought a laptop and im having trouble connecting to my E6k
the laptop doesnt have a 9 pin Serial port but it has a 25 pin port (witch i thought was for a printer)
So i got a 25 pin to 9 pin lead and it pluged up fine but when i try to go online with the software it either says "reconnect haltech" if its set to com port 1, or doesnt do anything with it set to com 2.
I know the ecu has power cos the fuel pumps priming
Also tried booting up in DOS and running the software that way so no other programs can interfer with the ports but still the same
thinking it was the port i went out and bought a USB to 9pin Serial port Adaptor but still the same with the haltech pluged into that
Y cant i Connect to the haltech Anyone got any idears cos i got no more idears
ahh i hope i dont have to buy another laptop. ive just bought this one D">
I Told the dude at the computer shop what i was useing the usb to serial adaptor for and that i would be using dos software and win98 and he said that it would work?? does anyone know of a good brand adaptor that are sure to work??
When i install the adaptor it says its installing as Com2 and in the properties in systems its on com2
set the haltech to com2 and switch modes to online and it just hangs on this blue and white screan and haltech logs and stuff. at the bottom in the white part it has 0 at one end and 100% in the other and just hangs there.
how long does it usally take to get to 100%?
anyway yeh ill pull the plug apart on the patch lead and cheak it out
Be great if that all it was, ill to it know and post up soon
Also how do u change what com ports other then 1 and 2 in haltech software?
Tryed useing my mates new laptop on xp with my adaptor i thought it was looking promising cos i could start the software and it was reconising com port one open but went to connect and nother just said reconnect haltech lol
i also have tried to set the adaptor on diferent ports on my laptop but couldnt change it in the haltech software other then 1 and 2.
Gunna have a nother little play do get much time after work and im always so tied lol
