Thread: Reset adaptive maps FTW!!!!

  1. #1

    Default Reset adaptive maps FTW!!!!

    I reset my maps yesterday and I must say the car is completely different. Not only does it not stall but it also keeps the revs better between shift which leads to a much smoother drive. I am absolutely thriled. Tonights project is to regulate the idle!!! Woo Hoo!

    Funny thing is after I did it my garage door broke so I couldn't take it out for a spin last night. It's a seperate garage with no entry except through the door!! I woke up early though and I was able to get it open with brute force so I had a nice early morning run.

    Glad to hear it is running well for you now, Mike. The smiles/mile will multiply faster now.

    Thnaks for all you help. Tonight it is idle adjustment time! After that it's alignment time.

    Cool. Make sure you allow it to thoroughly warm up before adjusting the idle tonight.

    I have a feeling it will be quite toasty by the time I get home. ;-)

    Adjusted the idle to 930 a/c off. Now the car falters again. Next step. Vacuum leaks.

    Did you reset the adaptive maps again after you adjusted it?

    I did. It's not stalling all the way out (only onece) but it is faltering. I'll give it time to see what it does and if it's still od by next week I'll go get it checked.

    Put about 100 miles on it and see how it's doing at that point. If it is still acting up, you may well have a vacuum leak somewhere.

    Three questions:
    Did you use the digital read-out of rpm when you did the adjustment (as from the V1.3 software)?
    Did you go through the recommended procedure to reset theTPS (throttle position sensor) idle position for the ECU after the adjustment? This requires turning the ignition on and off 10 times.
    After engine warm up, is the idle stable and steady now or is it "hunting" between high and low values? If it's not stable, the base setting is either too high or too low.
