PCM Hammer release 011

Postby NSFW » Tue Dec 31, 2019 10:07 am

I just put up a new release of PCM Hammer:
https://github.com/LegacyNsfw/PcmHacks/ ... 9.12.30.01

This release fixes the issue with in-vehicle reading and writing that jvaldez reported.

This release also adds support for logging Math parameters. Parameters are defined in the MathValues.configuration file, and will be added automatically when the required regular parameters are present. For example, if you log both MAF and RPM, the calculated Load parameter will be added automatically. Or if you log both Load and RPM, the calculated MAF parameter will be added.

The logger profile file format is changing. Existing profiles should be renamed to end with ".json.profile" to work with this version. New files with names ending in ".xml.profile" will be created automatically when you open an older file. Please use the new .xml.profile files going forward.

There are still two known issues:

Write Parameters (Clone) is disabled due to risk of data corruption.
For the P59 PCMs (aka 1mb PCMs), calibration writes are supported, but full OS writes are not.
Please don't PM me with questions about tuning or flashing - start a thread instead. Thanks!

Awesome :) I'll give it a go to flash my Vette.

Any idea when full OS writes to P59s will be supported? I'm itching to get my cruise control back ;)

Done a test read on the bench of my P59 - no errors in debug. Can't test calibration write as I don't have an xdf for this OSID 12592433 (Holden) for Tunerpro to make some edits. Looking forward to when full write is ready!

For test writes, it will continue with the test even if the bin file has no changes, so you could use the bin that was just read back.

That said, the only thing a test write would tell you is whether or not you have a good connection to the PCM. But since you already did a successful read, you already know you have a good connection. :)

Hi, i've been trying to get the newest PcmLogger version to work with no luck. The conversion of the profiles to XML works great and I then select the converted XML profile but I'm getting a 'MathValues.configuration' not found. I thought I read that it should be automatically created but I don't see it. I gave it several tries.

Thanks!
Scott

Sorry about that.... I'll update the .zip file, but in the meantime here's the missing file.

You'll need to remove the .txt extension, I just added that so I could upload it here.

Hello guys,
First of all, I want to say Thank You for All the work you have been doing…
I´m new here and I just found info about this forum and software, but I’m pretty sure that has taken you guys many hours work to do this…
I´m new in the ECU/ECM mod world, so if I do some dumm questions, please bear with me. I’m still learning (and there is a Lot to learn…)
I live in Mexico, but I’m from Europe and I don’t have experience with Trucks/SUVs.

I just found your forum and software info, because I need to read/write the ECM from a 2001 Silverado w/ a 5.7L Vortec engine, and the ECM seems to be LS1 type.
The ECM has some numbers, but I think this is the proper “GM Number”: 12201281
I would like to know if using PcmHamme and ScanTool SX, I can read/write this ECM to change the maps/calibration in order to adjust the modification that the owner wants to do by replacing the camshafts with some “racing” type ones and we need to adjust the ECM parameters so that the truck doesn’t shuts down all the time, and probably some other changes…
I would also like to ask if anyone can give some tips on the best and easiest software to use to make these changes.
I have some tools to read ECM/ECU, but they are more focused in compact cars and they are also more for the European type cars…
Regarding PcmHammer, is this mainly/only for GM ECMs or is there any other brand/ECM types we can use the software? (I still need to read al the info about this Great Software)
Thanks for the support guys…

Hi all,

Boxsport,
First off, welcome to the forum.
As for the PCM , the number you want is the Serv. No. 12200411 which is followed by a 4-letter code - such as DFNN.
As for the OBDLink Scantool SX, YES it will work.
For tuning the engine, you would need to get TunerPro RT v5 and become familiar with it - assuming you aren't already.
And, yes, it is ONLY for the GM P01 and P59 PCM's - sorry.

Hope this helps,

Mike
