latest BE version 5.188 READ from QH shows “0’s”

Post by nitrouspete » Wed Sep 04, 2019 9:19 am

Hi guys,

Latest BE version has me stumped. When I select READ it will only show zeros for all my values on the QH. I then proceed to WRITE my saved bin back to QH and run the engine and all seems fine. My READ function use to work in the past. Not sure back when with which version though. I normally don’t use READ function much. I want this function to be able to verify if the QH has my bin that I have loaded to it.
Thanks in advance.

Check your version of BE; Current version for public download on the EA website is 5.175 with 5.18 after update. There is no 5.188 that I am aware of.

No worries, Assuming your version of BE is licensed have tried to read the tune from the QH and compare it to a stock .bin? Have you opened the hardware tab and 1. Enabled the Moates hardware, 2. Checked the QH configuration to see if the tune you wrote to the hardware is whats being represented in the configuration tab, 3. Confirmed your battery back up on the QH is not depleted? If the battery back up has not been changed in a while it could be dead and not retaining the tune you are writing to the QH. If the battery has been compromised, when you open the configuration tab under hardware it will either show your current tune you wrote to the hardware or it will show a bunch of jibberish like ###$87*&*) which means the battery back up is dead and the tune is corrupt; corrupt meaning the hardware cant retain the information if the battery is dead. Just a few things to check.

Just verified everything. Moates is enabled and registered. QH is version 1.6 on mode:4 Tune:2.
I was able to read my tune on the QH that is loaded and it is fine. The question is why can't I read the FORD tune, when I select (Read FORD)? There are a bunch of warning windows that I have to keep clicking OK each time and then once they are completed I have the tune showing all values as "0".

I was sure I could do this before.

I just went out and performed a read with no issues or difficulty. Are you performing your read with the key on?

No key in ignition. Just USB to the QH.

Try performing a read with key on.
