I tried to tell you it wont work, yet the scammer keeps complaining about a overprice programmer and how everybody has made a cludge work. Both you guys need to step up to the plate and stop lying to feel important as a scammer. If the shoe fits, wear it.
I guess I'm a failure as a scammer since I don't sell any products I provided links to the information that I found, I didn't just make it up.
So you'll send me a programmer for free so I can program my controller? If so I guess I was wrong about you.

Been offering those services for a little over a year now. JRP3 rented from me once before, along with several others.

So just stop with the attitude. I'm skeptical of people building those dongles too, but there are reports of several people getting it working.... so only time will tell if they're right.

what are the 1311-XXXX part numbers we should watch out for? I could've sworn there weren't any other 1311 part numbers besides those.

YES, I offer free advice to everyone even though I sell the HPEVS products at a reduce cost to forum members. I also tech classes in EV conversion and have been in the industry since 1979. I developed the cell pack using the 18650 cells for a EV and provided all the data to Tesla prior to their making their own design. I probably had the first VW EV to be powered by Li-ion with 29whr and 125mi range in 2008 and still everyday ride today.

You shouldnt tell others they are wrong because somebody else says they did it, unless you can VERIFY. Dont be a SCAMMER or a PIN HEAD.

Major, YES that programmer you have should work with most Curtis including the 1238 as it is current, but will be replaced in July. let me know if you need any help on how or what to program.
Hmmm, It doesn't

And with regards to:

Your previous post seems to contradict that:

I have nothing against people in business. I like it even more when people genuinely try to help others without making a buck. For curiosity sake, what is the SRP for the 1311-4401 and the correct PC package (software and dongle)? And what discount can you offer to us DIYers? Send me a PM if you don't want to broadcast it.

Regards,

major

Again, I sell nothing so I'm not a scammer, and I just touched the top of my head and didn't stick myself, so I guess I'm not a pin head either
I must say you are representing your business very well with your attitude. Obviously I'll be highly recommending your services.

Just so you know, and because you doubted that anyone had it working..... I decided to try it myself!

I went home and took a USB-Serial dongle I had laying around, looked around at pinouts online, traced it through my 4-pin connector for programming and used the current curtis software I got off my CD for my 1314-4401 (I also tried the software available online that "doesn't work")

Works just fine (both the software on my CD and the one you can download)! I connected in like 2 seconds. First try. I was actually pretty surprised that it was so easy.

What you need:
Curtis software (I won't redistribute this, so do NOT ask me for it. Find it somewhere else)
IOGear GUC232A
RS232 cable cut in half
Pinouts that I found (http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/elect...tml#post489324)

Oh and in case you don't believe me.....

Hey cruis,

I wasn't trying to be mean. I was actually asking for the help you offer to tell me why it doesn't work and how I can get it to work. Any ideas?

I have available a new one at the lab which looks identical to my old one with same part number. The new one works fine. But my old one draws a blank. It used to work on the SepEx controllers a few years ago. Does it need an upgrade in firmware or a new "chip" or something?

Thanks,

major

Are you saying the old one doesn't power up at all, or just fails to connect?

Been a couple of months. Don't recall. I'll take it in and try again. I remember switching cables with the new one, but that didn't help.
