Re: Renix scanner port data question.

One question i have about this monitor is why it doesnt monitor map voltage?

Re: Renix scanner port data question.

I don't get email updates for this forum even though I'm subscribed to this thread which is weird. I could add a conversion for MAP sensor voltage if you wanted but it all comes from the same reading.

Re: Renix scanner port data question.

Well, figured I'd update you guys in here. Next sale goes live New Years Day, 1/1/17 at 12:30AM EST, 16 kits. Got a video if you like those and an ebay link but it won't work until the date above. If this link still doesn't work by then, just search up "Renix Engine Monitor" on ebay after the above date and it should come right up. My account says I'm subscribed but I have a feeling it still won't notify me so I'll try to check back every now and then.

One think I noted this week with my Snap on MT-2500 is it does not give any CPS data all

Be so cool if yours gave a non running CPS voltage output at the ECU output reading, but I do not know if the RENIX ECU was ever able to that even with the AMC Jeep Renix scanners? Or perhaps read a signal to the ICM-HV coil from the ECU at least to see if the ECU is trying to send a spark to the spark plugs on a no start condition?

We have to use an AC setting on a volt meter and back probe the CPS.

Factory tester never showed CPS info.

I guess we can use cranking injector open time data from the MT-2500 or other scanners to imply an operating CPS?

I think I will pull the primary spark plug wire and ground it and try my MT-2500 out while cranking to see what data we do get???? Might get some hints, like cranking RPM? Which has a minimum per 5-90 for the ECU to start the engine. Also an actual ms reading (or changing one, or no ms reading-thus no CPS signal) on injector open time might be an indication the ECU has a CPS signal?? Surrogate data indicator?

Never thought of that before, then again my MT-2500 is new to me, barely used 2 since I got it 3 months ago.

Did the AMC-Renix scanner produce any cranking data???

Re: Renix scanner port data question.

are you referring to the crank sensor? or the cam sensor?

if the crank sensor is bad it will not show any engine rpms during cranking. and i also think it does not show injector pulse duration too.

there is not a whole lot of information dumped out the renix ecu.
it actually looks dulled down from what its actually capable of.

Re: Renix scanner port data question.

Bingo, yes the Crank sensor, so that would answer it, not RPM reading if the CPS is not being read by the ECU, cool, awesome even!!!!

Re: Renix scanner port data question.

What ?????

There is a second sensor in the distributor right?

That is in essence a Cam sensor right?

When it goes bad, the Renix ECU takes forever to start firing as it needs that sensor to decide if the CPS signal is the exhaust or compression stroke on cyl #1.

Nope. Has nothing to do with cam sensing.

Not true. Disconnect it and you won't even notice a thing different.
