Wtf...............

Hi, need a little help here. Been searching with no luck. I had an ORP, with Tom's tune. Swapped it out for a HFC. Installed new O2 sensors, pulled Tom's tune and reinstalled the stock one, I think, can't really tell. I now have a vegetable soup medley of codes. been resetting the pc, cleaned the batt terminals, changed pcv valve, checked for vacuum leaks and shot the neighbor's dog to no avail. Here are the codes and meanings:
U1027- Invalid missing engine rpm data
U1009-Standard communication protocol invalid missing engine torque data
P1131-Lack of heated O2 sensor Bank 1
P1246- Alt load input failed

Any ideas?

I'd say he's making that suggestion based on "I think I reinstalled the stock tune".

Problem with loading/reloading tune would be his area of expertise.

Otherwise the guess would be wiring harness problems from the recent work.

So I restored the original back up, watched it go through all the monitor tests, only to see the dreaded p0420 code pop up. I have new O2 sensors front and back, motorcrap as well. Now what should I hit with a hammer. Kinda tired of this already.

Which HFC did you use? For example, one of CFM's HFC descriptions specifically states it will throw a p0420 code.

U1027- Invalid missing engine rpm data
U1009-Standard communication protocol invalid missing engine torque data
* Only thing that comes to mind for these 2 is the crank trigger sensor , its easy to remove and see if the end closest to the fly wheel is scratched up and being rubbed on by the fly whl

P1131-Lack of heated O2 sensor Bank 1
* common code to get , if the o2 is working it isnt an issue unless you get it daily
P1246- Alt load input failed
* Another common code for the SVT , could mean you Alt pigtail is bad or Alt isnt charging , use the datalogger to check your Alt voltage under load

Were you getting any of those with the tune in ?

Tom

Tom, the only code I'm getting now is the P0420 and the tune is not in. I was getting those with the tune in.
ShelbyGt, I am running a Dominant Engineering HFC. Let's hope that I don't get a P0420 just because of a HFC, that would really suck right now. Considering I am running all v-band clamps hardware and the stock cat is old school stuff. I just need to pass emissions. Running on expired tags because I can't pass right now.

BTW, elderfocus........lol, I need to have you send me a tune after I pass emissions. If I ever pass.

Good luck with that.
I am in the Dominic Biro is a charlatan and thief camp after my parts broke and he said to send them back to him for replacement. Once he got them, crickets.

Just let me know when your ready , update your xcal why you have the stock tune in the car then reload my tune and see if the codes come back , If they do I will send them to SCT and see what they say and we can try a stock tune to see if they are still there
