EEC-V won’t read QH Bin file

Post by AUXR8 » Sat May 29, 2021 8:55 am

Hi guys,
I’ve downloaded the complete ECU stock bin file using Tuner Pro Rt. I then loaded it into QH to get the ECU to read it from the QH instead of its own internal file. No good, car reacts like there’s no file in QH.
I remove QH from the ECU and the car starts fine.
I’ve been very careful not to connect/disconnect the QH with ignition on so I don’t think the QH is fried.
Anybody had this happen? May thanks for any tips!
Cheers, Pete

Have you cleaned the goop and plastic coating off the EEC J3 port?

Hi John,
Yes I have, cleaned it right back.
What I might do is put it all on the bench and check continuity from the ECU pcb tracks to the QH pcb tracks. Just to rule faulty contacts out altogether.

Some newer EEC's have J3 solder jumpers.
Thanks to Ironman for the pic.

After that it is having the QH set to serve the tune from from the location it is stored on the QH.
If that's all set right from TP then its a QH or EEC error.
Cheers

Thanks again John.
Do the solder bridges run vertically or horizontally (as in the pics below)?

Ok, dumb question...
Do I need a strategy loaded into Tuner Pro before the ECU will read a bin file from QH?
It's one thing I haven't done...

A blank def file is needed for Binary Editor. I don't use TP.
