Default Solid CEL Somebody help me!!!!

Ok, i'll break this down to every detail

Car is a 1991 Civic Si, with b18a, 450dsm injectors.
I'm using a chipped 91 PM6 ecu . The problem i'm having is when i try any edited maps at all, it won't work. I've tried TE as well as the Pm6with450cc that comes with ghettodyne, they both do the same thing. The CEL stays on Solid and the fuel pump relay keeps clicking on and off very rapidly. Now it doesn't do this with either
a stock PR4 map, or the stock PM6 Chip...I can't see it being an issue with the car or the ecu becuz it works with the stock maps..

Does anyone have any ideas? A friend of mine said it might be something to do with the fact that the car/ecu is canadian and is lacking ELD? HAs anyone heard of such a thing, or does anyone have a map they can send me at [email protected]

btw, here is the latest bin file thta i tried..stable with PR4 imported, 114% correction, 450cc, and step retard.

Hmmm, that is a little strange... I don't beleive the ELD will have that sort of effect on it though. You could try disabling it and see if it makes a difference, but I doubt it. What are you using for a burner?

Using a batronix eeprom programmer version 3.3.. The burner isn't an issue as we hvae just burned my friends obd1 ecu using uberdata with no issues..I'm completely stumped here. HOw do i disable ELD? I'm under the understanding that we don't have Eld in our canadain cars?

we don't, and an eld error will give you an eld code, and will not keep your car from starting

not to insult your intelligence, but are you putting the burned chip in the right way?

checksum should be disabled... what version of TE are you using? what rom?

Does anyone have a schematic of what each PIN on the m38256ap does? I'm thinking maybe there is a pin that is not used by the regular chip, but is being used by the program once edited for boost.

Ok, after further investigation, the Relay isn't clicking when i try to start it.. It's only when the key is in the "on" position.. If i try to start it, it just whirls over..Also tried a new ZIF socket today in the ecu to no avail

have you tried a known working turboedit bin file?

-------------/bins

download one of those turboedit files and just burn it and see if the car runs it. process of elimination. if that works you know its a problem with the way you're making the maps. if it doesnt work, its probably an issue with the way you're burning the chip (if the stock chips are working)
