Re: ESP Gen 3 Review

I tried a DB15 gender changer from amazon and the old CAN OBDII Gen 2 cable. No power to the SPX OBD box. Not sure if it's the gender changer being cheap. My boss went cheap and ordered a Chinese OBD2 cable instead of obd2cables.com and that won't work on the Gen 3 or OIS. We have other Chinese cables that work  with the gen3 but the pins are very weak and get bent easily, OBD2cables.com are way superior and every cable has worked out of the box.

 OK question about cables.
Are they not to be just like a jumper cable. Pin on this end should match pin on other end.
I bought a cable. It did not work. We pinned it out pin 1 was in the 3 spot. several were not a match. Is that right?
 Sorry to you that I have not offended. Give me time. I will get to you.

This was a 9 pin Dyno lift cable. Thanks. My Cabinet and the control box are not near each other.

Turn it off for like 5 minites, or turn off and on 3 times. Something like that.

Cut the power completely and wait about ten minutes.  Connect the power with one hand, while crossing your fingers with the other.

Another annoyance, it is no longer possible to go to the previous screen for Timing Adj NA/Yes.

My review is GEN 3 is an unreliable big pile of sh!t so far. Today is the first time it has worked for a 24 hour stretch.

What is up with the big box on the OBDII cable? I hooked my foot on it stepping out and unplugged the connector and it took for ever to get an RPM signal again. I have no idea so far what that thing is for other to get in the way.

I will keep my other GEN 2 machine as long as I can.

 None I have been playing with that thing for years. It looks just like a SPX Can reader.

 Now if you are smart all of you guys who didn't use it before DON'T. Don't get use to using it for RPM. It's a pain in the ass.
When it first came out I had a Billion Aborts. It got kicked, lost power, ABORT. SPX finally fixed it.
The smart move is to use the tach you are use to and only hook it up for the OBD part of the test. Unwind it, us it, wind it up.

 What was ESP using?

 Side not. My BRAND NEW OPUS will not work. New computer something. Will not hook up to the State. Lovely.

Check that the time and date is correct when you try to do a file refresh.

I bet they know about it. Mine wouldn't connect with the state last week either but that was on the seventh and the GEN 3 computer said it was the eighth.
