|J3 was clean, you did motivate me to reclean it with some sandpaper and brake cleaner, thanks for the tip. In the end trial and error prevailed. Here are some tips for those wishing to read thier CDAN4 EECV. This ECU was a LWC3, email me if you need this stock bin!
Set the Chip Addressing to:
Click "READ CHIP"!
Click "Save Buffer to File"
Download the CDAN4.XDF from TIPERFORMANCE.COM
*The CDAN4 file from other sources resulted in false errors!
I had to use the TunerPro Hex Editor, and read read read on hex files to understand what was going on.
Troubleshooting steps that "worked for me"... wish I had this info to start!:
1. Download a known good BIN and Strategy(tiperformance.com files worked for me). Explore. Check out the tables, scalars, and other items to get familiar with what CDAN4 strategy items are available with that XDF.
2. Use Hex editor to explore this known good bin. Open the XDF and check out the BIN File layout. notice that the good stuff starts at location(think line number... in hex) "00012000".
3. The Moates instructions here are a bit vague:
3a. Pick EECV or enter chip address start -> 000000... end -> 03FFFF. Note that the MOATEs instructions do not specify "Buffer Address", just to enter "Start/End". In my case, the same Chip and Buffer settings worked.
3b. Enter Buffer Address. start -> 000000, end -> 03FFFF
3c. Click "Read Chip"(THIS STEP IS MISSING FROM MOATS INSTRUCTIONS AS OF 2/5/2015!). Read chip loads the ECU BIN to the buffer.
3d. then click save buffer to file.
Also: both Windows 8, and 7 did not recognize the burn2 burner using flash n burn. Moates has some great troubleshooting info on thier site. Changing the USB port to COM4 in device manager worked on windows 8(Lenovo laptop, note the UI is a bit different from his instructions, windows 8 calls device manager something different). Loading the drivers from the Moates website cured my problems on windows 7(Dell) with no other changes required.
Woohoo off to editing my first BIN! Good luck.
