rpm limit resets to 0
« on: February 22, 2015, 02:37:09 PM »

the rpm limit is set to 7120, any other setting, higher or lower (e.g. 7200, 6500) results in 0 rpm after written to chip.  car won't start.  read all shows rpm limit set to 0 rpm.  reset to 7120 and re write works, but no other rpm will.

Hey Jack,

I can't replicate this problem here. Using your special file and .ecu file, it always saves properly. Make sure you hit enter after typing a value in. Try using the up and down buttons in the top right of the WAR Chip program. The RPM moves in increments of 40 as that is the way the math works to convert it to a real world number and you cannot get a finer resolution than that. Try saving the file, reopening it and check to see if the changes are still screwing up.

no luck on any method of changing rpm limit.  changing it with up arrow, then saving file, before planning to write hangs up computer (XP Pro.)  Just writing resets rpm to 0.
