General Discussion / Re: Trouble codes UG to MB
« on: January 24, 2012, 09:11:34 AM »
These are not UG codes, UG is just relaying the codes from your Sprinter.

Just do a Google search, there are plenty of hits on that code:

"Reductant Metering Unit Heater Control Circuit High"

LCDs actually contain a liquid.  As the temperature increases the liquid expands.  At some point the liquid will expand to the point that it will break the seals and the LCD will be destroyed.  Use of a sun shade dash protector is not only recommended for UG, but also will protect your vehicles interior.

No damage will occur, but the display will become unusable at low temperatures.  As the temperature drops the displays response time slows down to the point that it is just a blur.  However, the display self heats when used, so even with a low ambient temp, it will start working again once it warms.

It would be similar to the current process for upgrading Classics to EMs.

VE is ignored on vehicles with MAF sensors.

If you vehicle has a MAF sensor, then the VE is unimportant.  If you do not have a MAF sensor, then I would lean toward enabling the volumetric efficiency first.

Since you have a Diesel, you must calibrate it otherwise UG will be way off.  The calibration process is simple.  Just follow each step listed in the manual.

Let's assume that there is an "oil quality" sensor.   Such a sensor might have an output range of 2V to 7V.  With 2V being good quality and 7V being the worst.   If the computer reads the sensor and finds a value of 10V, then you get a "Engine Oil Quality Sensor Circuit High"    Likewise if the computer read 0.5V, then it might output "Engine Oil Quality Sensor Circuit low".

I would avoid taking it to a shop.  They will just take your money and may or may no fix the problem.  Instead, purchase a factory shop manual.  Factory shop manuals are sold by the manufacturer.  Avoid the manuals found at the auto parts store.   A factory shop manual will have very detailed specific information and will cover the various sensors.   Buying factory manuals on-line is the way to go.  You can even find them on ebay.

This feature is already up and running in the lab.  We just need to find the resources to polish it up and hit it with heavy beta testing.  It will not be released until end of Q1 best case.

Here is a video posted on youtube by a user that dash mounted and needed the buttons on the front:

UltraGauge was designed and is manufactured by UltraGauge.com.

A good deal of thought and deliberation went into the design of UltraGauge.   We gathered feedback from potential users on most every aspect.   We had mach ups with buttons on the front and the back.    The buttons in the back won out as it was found to be just as easy to use, lower cost, and safer.     UltraGauge was designed to be affordable by all.  There are several features we could have added but when asked only a small percentage of customers would actually consider the incremental cost worth the feature.

A future version of UG may in fact have a USB and functions that can be upgraded in the field.   Work has yet to begin, so it would be a distant future version

The message your receive means that you have reset the distance and it is now too small to perform the calibration.   The order of your calibration steps is not right.

General Discussion / Re: Boost Pressure (BST PSI) - ERROR message info
« on: November 10, 2011, 04:55:45 PM »
"Err" is displayed when the ECM fails to return a value for a gauge, in this case its either MAP or Barometric pressure.

Pull up the "Barometric Pressure" and MAP gauges to display along side boost.  One of those is the source of the problem

« on: October 25, 2011, 09:46:05 PM »
Hey, first post but I did the rebate form, but I'm not sure what would be considered the packing slip. Is it the shipping label on the front of the box it came in? Or is it something else?
In the box are two pieces of paper.  One is the yellow warning label with a link to the rebate page.  The second is a 3/4 sheet of white paper with the order and shipping information......a.k.a. the packing sheet.

Shipping to Canada is "International".
The shipping cost will be listed below that message.

General Discussion / Re: Will oil pressure be added?
« on: September 19, 2011, 05:00:16 PM »
Although this is an old thread and I am a new to the forum it needs a comment.

I can only speak to what I know. The engine oil pressure is available on the GM VPW protocol as an enhanced PID (#115C). The real problem is finding the pid and then get the OBD2 Gauge folks to implement the. For the UG this would mean you have to send it in, not good.
Its not an enhanced gauge, but rather a manufacturer specific gauge designed for use only by their factory service personnel.    Such manufacturer specific parameters are a closely held secret by the manufacturer.   However, some, like the one mentioned, have leaked out and can be accessed.  However, such parameters are unique to the manufacturer and not the protocol and are not part of the OBDII standard.  The Manufacturer is just taking advantage of the existing OBDII interface and using it as a transport for their specific parameters.
