My golf simulator Sensor Pad is not being recognised by my software. It is P3ProSwing system. There is power to the sensor, I am connected to the laptop via a Serial-USB converter which has driver installed and is being recognised in Device Manager as COM6. Does anyone have any trouble-shooting advice for me?? Thanks

Hi,

If the unit was being recognized before and just recently failed, then it could possibly be a failure on the USB port of your laptop. try updating your driver(s). Depending on your OS (XP or Vista), you may need to check for any updates specifically for the USB.

Incidentally, some malwares and/or viruses have been known to cause similar types of faults so a virus scan would also be in order. You can also try an online virus scanner other than what your systen has. Additionally, try downloading a free copy of Ad-Aware and likewise run a full scan.

Other than the above, you may need to do a clean fresh re-install of the software.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2000 Ford focus. Reading codes P0113, B1600, P0179. It has very little power while driving at times as well. But not always.


Have the IAT circuit checked for any bare wiring or wires touching/grounding out to each other as this could be an intermittent problem that may be corrupting the 5 volt reference signal . This would cause driveability issues .

When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or cranshaft position sensor CKP

A tool such as an Ignition System Simulator can speed the diagnosis by quickly telling you if the ignition module and coil are capable of producing a spark with a simulated timing input signal. If the simulated signal generates a spark, the problem is a bad distributor pickup or crankshaft position sensor. No spark would point to a bad module or coil. Measuring ignition coil primary and secondary resistance can rule out that component as the culprit.
Module problems as well as pickup problems are often caused by loose, broken or corroded wiring terminals and connectors. Older GM HEI ignition modules are notorious for this. If you are working on a distributorless ignition system with a Hall effect crankshaft position sensor, check the sensor's reference voltage (VRef) and ground. The sensor must have 5 volts or it will remain permanently off and not generate a crank signal (which should set a fault code). Measure VRef between the sensor power supply wire and ground (use the engine block for a ground, not the sensor ground circuit wire). Don't see 5 volts? Then check the sensor wiring harness for loose or corroded connectors. A poor ground connection will have the same effect on the sensor operation as a bad VRef supply. Measure the voltage drop between the sensor ground wire and the engine block. More than a 0.1 voltage drop indicates a bad ground connection. Check the sensor mounting and wiring harness.
If a Hall effect crank sensor has power and ground, the next thing to check would be its output. With nothing in the sensor window, the sensor should be "on" and read 5 volts (VRef). Measure the sensor D.C. output voltage between the sensor signal output wire and ground (use the engine block again, not the ground wire). When the engine is cranked, the sensor output should drop to zero every time the shutter blade, notch, magnetic button or gear tooth passes through the sensor. No change in voltage would indicate a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.
If the primary side of the ignition system seems to be producing a trigger signal for the coil but the voltage is not reaching the plugs, a visual inspection of the coil tower, distributor cap, rotor and plug wires should be made to identify any defects that might be preventing the spark from reaching its intended destination.

Have it scanned so you'll know which system is causing negative performance issue. 2000 models have issues with the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor, temperature sensor, pre-cat converter 02 sensor and a second gear grind with it's 02J transmission to name a few.

I have a 2005 bmw 525i, the airbag light is on,it has a code 39678 on the memori, keeps caming back I dont have information on this code to find the problem


i work for a dealer in canada and i have no idea what that code means as i use dealer products, but its probably you pass side seat occupancy sensor which would require replacement and software, Unless you've gotten into an accident than the seat is a common problem,try checking the connections under the seat as something may have fallen under the seat and broken a connection

Hey,
take a look at www.airbagmodul.com

Re: golf simulator


Hi again,

Appreciate the update. Since as you posted you tried it to serial to serial then I would have to agree with you that the problem is with the hardware.

Perhaps this may be of help to you and whoever will look over the sensor. To my knowledge USB connection would at most require 4 wires (+5, GND, Data+ & Data-) while most serials would have 9 pins/connection/wires. This link can provide their pinouts.

Offhand, most likely suspect would be the cable or the connector specially the junction of the two.

Incidentally, this link may provide some technical background on the operations of the sensor pad though it would need a technical person to correlate information into actuality. I believe one has to be a member to be able to download the complete file (hopefully together with the illustrations).

Good luck with your project and sorry was not that much assistance.
