|sleepyboy||^^I hear ya, if it's a tight fit ya never know, also you would know your car much better especially since it isn't stock at all lol|

Didn't do anything abnormal tonight.
Only thing I can think of is my power wire hit the intake and grounded out. It's a tight fit but everything tight and doesn't move. Maybe a little water got back there, I can see that completing the circuit.
Regardless I'm writing it off as a fluke and I'll have to devise some type of rubber shield just in case.
BTW, all the main power wires in the car have been redone and aren't run as they are factory. Battery is rear mounted also.
Pretty much I'm the only one who can figure the car out because not much is factory or in the factory location.

|sleepyboy||Anytime I've had a cut out or the gauges make a sweep it's been the power wire going from the alternator to the starter then the battery. You may want to check that wire. If it's not making good contact it can cause the problem you experienced. Hopfully you won't be chasing down that gremlin too long lol|

I dont know if its a higher priority as much as upper case does a higher sample rate
I have seen the xcal hooked to a Focus MANY times where ALL hands on the dash sweep over and back which tells me the xcal some how has something to do with a loss of power to the ECU or at least the dash , this has only happened on these cars when logging with an xcal

That's what I figured.
Thinking about this again, it couldn't have been loosing CKP signal. That wouldn't have stopped the logging process. So I must have lost power to the ECU, connection to the DLC or something like that. I'll have to do some probing and see what I find.

If you are logging with livelink it is stored on your pc and not the device. When using livelink the device is simply a pass through medium.
If you are logging without livelink and just using the device then it is stored on the device.
It is never stored on your ecu.

Stored on the xcal , the more things you record the shorter the log time , the more upper case vs lower case you record shortens it more

|sleepyboy||I don't see how the ECU could have enough memory to record at all?|

|iminhell||That's what I'd think too, but I want to be sure.|

|sleepyboy||^^I'd have a heart attack also lol. I doubt the log is store in the ECU, it must be stored on the laptop or the X3......or at least I'm pretty sure it is.|
