Re: How many versions of BE are there?

The copyright date dates to when BE, the brand name, was first released. The Copyright date is not an indication of version. It's an indication of initial inception. Although there are some exceptions where you might see a long chain of years. Why the publisher, in those cases, decided to do that, I...

Re: How many versions of BE are there?

There was a version before 2010, then there was the 2010 version, after that 2012. And at some point, Clint got away from the "year" versioning and that's when BE got versioned as v5.x. The version I have installed right now is 5.142 as indicated in the title bar of the BE window. There's probably a...

Re: Unknown pcm identification

The fact that Bank 1's HEGO will respond is an indication it isn't a sensor or wiring problem, but some other issue. My guess is you have an exhaust leak or some other problem that's getting O2 into the exhaust on that bank throwing the Bank 1 HEGO's measurements. But that's just a guess. I can't re...

Re: Rough idle, no KAM

My interpretation of what you described is injectors are firing, but the plugs are not. However you seem to be jumping to the conclusion that the EEC is to blame for the cylinders not firing. Assuming this is the same engine as listed in your signature (i.e. GUFB/A9L controlling a 5.0L in an F150), ...

Re: Corrupt tune

I still say try putting the tune in a different tune position on the QH just to see what happens. Also if this is a rarely used vehicle, then make sure your QH is the latest hardware revision. The newest versions have two major mods that are worth getting, and I believe are available for free if you...

Re: Corrupt tune

Short of a battery problem, I only know of one way that a tune can go corrupt on its own in a QH. Of the 8 tune positions, one is writable at runtime. From what I recall, it's the tune that just happens to be in the same memory block also used for datalogging. It's been a long time, but it seems lik...

Re: Where to put wideband

I don't know that it's necessary. Where having the WB really makes a difference is tuning Open Loop conditions. During open loop, the EEC isn't trimming and adjusting fuel. It's blindly commanding what it HOPES is delivering the target amount of fuel. That's where you as the tuner come in to make su...

That would do it, but what allowed it to get so dirty that it suddenly ran badly? Was it run without a filter or did you spray something into the intake that oil-coated the sensor? Anything like that?

Re: Engine running rich

Well, I have a couple of comments. First, your tune file is a BEB. The A9L is GUFB, so it shouldn't require a licensed def file if you are using the open source one. As a result, I can't do anything with it. If you've purchased a def file and did so because the layout is consistent with other defs y...
