I am a university student currently in charge of managing and configuring a Pectel SQ6 and Omega D4 dash to our Formula Student car.
One of the issues I am having is showing the gear number on the dash, the dash can pick up wheel speed from the ECU as well as engine speed, and the gear ratios have been set in the ECU. however I am not sure of the next step to actually display the gear number on the dash.
The previous student wired the dash to the ECU using a CAN connection, and the dash is configured through PI Toolset. From my own research I have found it may be better using a serial connection between the ECU and dash and having the dash run fully in SQ6 defined mode, would this be true for our setup?
Finally, this was all passed over to me from a previous student and I feel as I am missing something obvious, when the dash starts I seem to be unable to go into setup regardless of how long I hold the blue and grey buttons, does anyone have a solution for this?
Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered!
