  2. Firstly I need to say a big thankyou to ian k (bagpuss) He saw my post about my dash 2 not showing readings correctly and after speeking to me he set me on a journey to sort it out as best he could helping me with my limited knowledge I purchased the car in October 18 a Honda s2000 with dash 2 with aprox 350 miles from new on the build the car as run perfect but the dash was not showing correct readings I had no software or leads to alter dash2 also no experience at all and was starting to annoy me this is what was basically showing on dash 2 readings 1 gear change was never showing 6 gear on display and 5 th gear was a bitt dogy 2 water temperature was only showing around 68 to 70 fan coming on at 83 ish 3 oil pressure was a reading to me but did not mean anything but was constant reading about 3.0 4 fuel % was showing 2 different values one with the engine running and one with the engine just ignition on , also the % were miles out making me paranoid about running out of fuel so carrying a spare gallon for emergency’s also drained fuel in car then filled car from empty and then every ½ gallon registering percent on gauge to see how much was in tank corresponding to the percentage I made a chart and stuck it at side of gauge on car for a bit of reassurance and worked on a 35 mpg consumption After several pm messages with ian k (bagpuss ) first job was to run a new earth cable to chassis from sender unit to give the fuel readings more consistent reading with the ignition on and the car running Ian says its noise down the cable so re earth a second wire This was done and the readings nearly the same result number 1 Then Ian told me how to recalculate the pulses from the wheel pick up on the dash 2 using the 4 buttons , to make the speedo read true and was checked with a separate gps on a run out this. was accurate and this also then made the gear change display perfect result 2 We then talked about temperatures and oil pressure and putting the dash 2 reading from % for fuel to gals To do this I needed dash 2 software on my laptop A 9 pin usb adaptor lead with driver to plug dash 2 under dashboard into my laptop A config file So again ian explained in detail how to load the software after sending it to me And a config file he had made for his s2000 And basically loading it onto my car via laptop The display values have all now changed and I have a display showing gallons on the fuel display and after filling with ½ gallon fuel increments its pretty near on the gauge on dash 2 Temperature showing fan cutting in at 89 instead of 83 a bit more realistic I still have to check car on a run on water temperatures it was 70 on average before showing it low but car was fine just display not reading right I may get out later this week to finalise all readings when car is running and up to temp so any update will be done its great to have readings now that are of a better values and a fuel guage that works again big thanks ian k (bagpuss) helping people with problems on the forum what a great guy thanks john
