    Well, why does your fuel pump not come one? Ecmlink isn't really going to affect that. Can you post a log?

    i dont know cant post a log right now
    but i cant hear the pump on startup
    and plugs are dry
    before car was running oke just no start after ecu install and clutch switch cable
    i replaced the maf for speed density do i have to disconnect the maft from the ecu?
    i just took off the connector from the maf and plugged in the sd connector i didnt disconnect the mafttranslator from the ecu
    could that give a problem?

    Are you running V3? If so, go into the Misc. Tab and turn on the fuel pump, see if that will turn it on.

    Are you sure the ECU isn’t damaged?

    Work with what you do know, you swapped the ECU and the car doesn’t turn on. Start there.

    No problem. If you’re sure the ECU is good than check the connectors and pins, make sure one wasn’t damaged when you plugged it in. Start simple. Good luck

    Fuel, spark, compression.
    You can turn the fuel pump on manually via link and see if it's working that way.
    are you getting fuel at the rail?
    Do you have spark?
    Are your injectors scaled correctly?
    What was the car tuned on previously?

    I believe the CAS fires the injectors (if you have one).

    You need to adjust throttle cable and tps. Are you on SD or MAF?

    Your profile says MAF, so go to the MAF Comp tab and choose the correct maf.

    I recommend you watch the demo videos on ecmlinks website. Also jafromobile has a great tuning series on YouTube that are helpful along with some threads here.

    I haven’t tuned SD yet (it’ll be here Monday), so I have some homework to do.

    You clearly haven't done any reading on how to setup ecmlink. Go to the links previously posted and read them so that people don't have to explain every single procedure to you.

    You don't have your IAT or MAP sensor setup in the ecu inputs tab so this is most likely why the car isn't running.
