Has anyone else ordered and received their chip yet? I'm still waiting for the programmer and would enjoy hearing from others that are already playing with the device.
Two things to check:I have loaded MPLAB-X and the Hi-Tech compiler. After many false starts I loaded the program from the firmware file and I was able to see the ngc.c file. I edited the CV lines to lower the voltage to fit my car. BTW, my charger has a 470k resistor between the battery and the control board. I clicked on the build and clean tab and numerous errors returned. My charger has a 16 position rotary switch connected to the programming pins. Only the first four positions of this switch are used.
If anyone has any ideas how to proceed, I'd like to know.
Could have been backwards. I oriented pin one to match the old chip's pin one. I think I programmed in debug mode. I'm not shipping until tomorrow so I could pay with it some tonight, but not hopeful. I'll try rotating the old chip 180 degrees and see if I get some life showing.Any smoke or fireworks? It would be nice if we could figure out what happened.From the sounds of it your charger might still be ok. If the main relay still clicks and you have the yellow LED then most of the charger is working. This is the default behavior without a chip installed. Any chance the chips were installed backwards or have a bent pin? When you programmed the chip did you use the PicKit in debug or programming mode?
Hopefully Dave will have more time soon to hand hold us through the process. You are getting about what I'm getting, except you'er getting a yellow light where I was getting a green one. What model do you have? I have the NG1 72 volt version.The result was a beep, no fan and a yellow light. Oh, I edited the c file to 135 volts and saved it before any of the above. Does anyone know what I should do next?
