    Diablo Sport Trinity Problem

    Hey guys,

    Just got a diablosport trinity, updated it via computer and tried it out. I didnt upload any tunes yet I just wanted to try out the gauges etc. plugged it in first then started vehicle (thats the correct order right?). The gauges started getting data but it tripped out the cars computer. The BAS ESP warning light came on, the auto gear selected area stared flashing random characters and my tach started jumping up and down lol. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Occasional glitches occur. Cycle the key to refresh and don't worry about it... unless it happens all the time.

    That really sux man. Well, yeah you got the order right: I plug mine in first but I don't usually start the car, I just switch it to ON.

    I've had my BAS and other lights flash around, had some relays from under the hood actuate,.. but I can't say I ever remember hearing of the tach jumping around or the shift numbers flashing.

    Do you have any other symptoms or electrical oddities, either before or after the Trinity mishap?

    Well I just got the car a month ago so im not sure of its history, no electrical problems for me so far though until this. Only 20k on the car, shouldn't be anything wrong :S. You said youve had the trinity trip some of your electronics, as have others, why does this happen? I don't understand why it's feeding back to the car's computer at all, shouldn't it just be receiving information?

    There are guys here who can tell you exactly whats its doing but I'm not one of them... but you shouldn't have to dig that deep just to get it to work.

    Check your battery voltage.

    Check your OBD cable. Look in the end and make sure all the pins are straight. Touch each one and make sure nothing is loose or broken.

    Check the OBD plug on your car. Get under there and look with a flashlight to make sure nothing is blocking an electrical connection.

    Check the cable connection to the Trinity for misalignment or blockages; better yet try a differnt cable. Or if you have a few skills and an Ohmmeter, zero out each connection from end-to-end to make sure the cable is good.

    Check if your car has any codes; Autozone will do this for free if the Trinity won't do it or do the key dance.

    Check the Trinity for information. Last tune written, CROM version. Anything relevant.


    I'm sorry to say that beyond these simple checks your best bet is to keep working through DS for resolution. You might even register on the forums on their website and start a discussion there. There's a good bunch of guys at DS, busy as hell, but good guys. Keep pinging them for support and you'll get it. You might also ping DiabloToona here on LXF... I believe he's a DS insider.

    I'm disappointed you got the thing but cant experience it.

    Keep working on it, its worth it! If everything checks out and DS cant resolve this remotely, I betcha they'll be ok with changing your unit out.

    Any update on this? I just upgraded to the Trinity from the Predator and I'm having similar issues. Never had a problem with the Predator. I have a 2006 too. Seems the BAS/ESP light is coming on for some of the early builds.

    Me and a few others had the same problem a few months ago and here is the solution I found!

    I also posted on the diablo sport forum. http://www.diablosport.com/forum/vie...37&t=39066


    Ok, here is the solution I found:

    I had the chance to have access to two 2006 and one 2005 over the week-end. After some investigation, I found that the two 2006 have 4 additional cable in the OBD2 connector compare the 2006 manual shop (pin 1 - 3 - 10 - 13) and 3 to 2005 (pin 1 - 3 - 13).
    The two 2006 had the same problem with the trinity but the 2005 was working fine. So I took the additional cable out one by one and found out that the pin #13 (white & blue cable ) is the one that cause the problem.

    So unscrew the connector from under the dash, pull it down slightly, remove the blue tab that lock the pin in place on the pin 9 to 16 side (pin are all numbered on the cable.).
    Then there is a small plastic tab on the inside of the connector that need to be pushed toward the center of the connector while you pull on the cable from the back.
    Once the cable is out, tape it carefully and put everything back in place except this cable. Connect your trinity and enjoy.

    This had been tested on a Daytona r/t 2006 and a 300c srt8 2006 and fixes the problem.
