Default Purchased HondaLog - Will not Log???

I just installed my "Hondalog" Datalogging cable last night:
http://www.moates.net/hondalog-p-79.html
and cannot get it to log, or react using Uberdata (datalogging section).
I have set to COM2 on both Device Manager, and Uberdata. (left everything else default). My laptop sees the USB device, and connects successfully to it.
I have read somewhere about cutting J12 jumper on ecu for Hulog... but unsure if this is also true for HondaLog?

Someone Please help, as it is getting annoying.

I'd say it looks just like this http://www.pgmfi.org/twiki/bin/view/...erialConverter
only pre wired to plug into cn2. Did you get your comp to recognize it by itself? Test it out through hyperterminal by itself before you hook up the ecu.


this is why j12 needs snipped? http://www.pgmfi.org/twiki/bin/view/...lexDatalogging

I used the supplied CD from Moates to install the drivers. It then recognized the serial converter. It seems to communicate with the ecu, as it displays results in some ghetto freeware "honda gauge?? or something" program (displays a/f boost, rpm,water temp, mph, etc on your laptop)... but the readings are totally garbled, and incorrect.

Another thing, thats weird.. Is with it plugged in, and the car running. If I set port (in datalogging section of uberdata) to correct COM, (and only if I check "log rpm's",) my DIY Vtec light starts flashing intermitally. (a light I wired to vtec silenoid to display when vtec is engaged). The second I uncheck "log rpm's", the light quits blinking.
So it must be connecting.

You need to wire in a jumper for J12 to datalog with Unerdata. I bet the numbers that you are getting are garbage, i.e. jumping around toggleing between good info and complete garbage. I don't know why everyone says to cut J12 to log with UD. I have tried this on 3 ECUs and several different datalogging cables and the only way I got good readings was by installing a jumper on J12. Also make sure that the baud rate oin device manager for your Hondalog (usb to serial bridge) is set to 38400.

those links you gave me talk about "hyperterminal". Any idea what that is, and where I could find it.
also, have a hard time finding "baude rate". Ive opened Device manager, and checked port settings, and also advanced tab, but cant seem to find baude rate setting. (my ecu is not plugged in currently, but I checked other com devices)

The baud rate is int the Port Settings tab. It is actually labeled Bits per Second.

Hyperterminal is in Acessories>Communications.

If you got it from Moates then it is more than likely wired correctly and functioning properly.

ok, then i was looking at the right hypertermenal:
start\run\hypertrm
But I really couldn't figure out how to use it. I think your right tho. Im sure its plugged correctly. I will check baud settings, and j12 jumper.

Could it be that I am trying to use uber on a ecu that is chipped with a chrome chip? Also, Does chrome (non pro) allow datalogging?

If you are trying to datalog in Uber with a CROME chip then it will not work either. The free version of cROME does not datalog. If you prefer CROME then use another program such as Freelog to do your datalogging. When you create a ROM in CROME you have to add the datalogging code to the ROM.

While you are in CROME goto: Plugins>Enhancements>Quick Datalogger+RTP
