Default Re: Programming Curtis Controller

Hey guys and gals.. Supposed to go help with a cart the next couple of days that already has freedom turned on using the dongle. From talking with Bob, he told me that before working on a cart in that state that freedom needed to be turned off and other parameters changed back to what they were or you could risk corruption of the controller. Anyone know what those are?

And another glitch. I bought a genuine ftdi cable from Newark and when I plug it into my laptop it doesn’t recognize it. Tried to tell it to go use the same driver as my working cable and no dice. Is it because I am using windows 10 ? Fdti prog doesn’t see it either.

Well tried another machine and let it download a newer driver. Need to try it on a cart but think my cable will be okay. Just need to put some ends on it.

You've already posted info in two threads here, that should not have been posted in public. Why would I share even more critical information than that? I'm not responding to much on the forum, as I'm trying to focus on staying alive.

The motor current maps are what need to be returned to original, if they were changed from stock. Toggle off Freedom Mode, reset those maps, then toggle Freedom Mode back on. Once that is done, all changes after that can be done without fear of corruption.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

That being said, this needs to be told to everyone out there attempting to learn by writing controllers with Factory or Development level programmers...

FSIP recently reported to me that motor current calibration related memory corruption errors are on the rise in RXV controllers being sent in for cores or repair...

While I know some of this is related to Overvolt and Undervolt Cutoff errors causing improper controller shutdown sequences, which will write specific known currupt values to one or both of two locations, those are easy to identify...

More recently, it is looking like people are messing around with settings that they do not understand, and they are causing memory corruption to other peoples controllers...

Those of you doing these things, you cannot just rewrite the original file back to correct those issues. Motor calibrations are a live write operation, not addressed by writing a previously saved Parameter file back to the controller.

Sounds like fsip is getting wise. Thanks Bob. My plan is to get an rxv non freedom mode, set it to mode 4, and take a snapshot of the controller parameters. Then apply the dongle and take another snapshot. Print out the two and compare. It will be a couple weeks but I will post what I find.

Was going to try to make an adapter cable tonight using a usb cable. 2 wires are okay but the other 2 are tiny. Can I used sheilded 22 ga or 18 ga stranded security wire instead ?

Yes you can.

I'm running a fever and having a hard time staying awake. May need to go back in the hospital to find out why. If I don't respond, it would be because am not reading here much.

Bob unless you reading this forum is “good” for you and helping with your recovery you need to ignore our silly little issues and focus on getting better. Someone’s cart not running is peanuts compared to what you have going on. Get better young man.
