Basically, we loaded a tune in Mikes SVTF, and now the odometer has the dashes ------- in place of the odometer. We figured it was the PATS system, but the keys were reprogrammed. Still nothing.

Need some ideas...

..read here : http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=1038616#post1038616

Reply in here though so I can keep a list of things to check.

So far:

-Keys Reprogrammed
-Check clutch switch, even made a jumper so we didnt need to push the pedal to start.
-Checked all fuses....three times...
-Loaded the tune again

The computer is not getting enough voltage from the battery to completly load the tune. Make sure you turn off all accessories and put a battery charger on there. Your also supposed to pull some fuses but I cant remember which ones right now.

and the car hadnt been running, so I had my car hooked up via jumper cables and it was running....I was feeding his car 14.7 volts...

*ON the fuse pulling, I only pull my one TC fuse (actually have it on a switch)...why do some have to pull so many, I mean, I only do one and NEVER have issues. In fact, I once forgot to do the fuse thing and it worked fine...*

Back to the subject at hand, just wanted to throw that in.

Were gonna undo the battery for a few hours and try that....cant hurt. After that, I'll charge his battery (or give him mine) and attempt to reflash.

Anyhting else?

Do we all agree the PATS is to blame??

this is crap....i damn well hope i didnt fry mine! i'd been doing some "trouble shooting" on my car, and took toms tune out... went to put it back in w/o pulling fuses... now the damn thing won't take the stock tune. i'm gonna hook a charger up to the battery, or another car and make sure its not just low... what is it with these silver svts and blowing up ecus? sounds like a tsb to me.... tom says if it is the ecu, to play dumb at the dealer and make them replace it under warranty. otherwise, where did you get your replacement mike?

Diablo helped me force the stock tune back in, which you should try...

..I still cant get the stupid tune to load though...I cant even convince it to go to the Predator.
