Re: VAG ME7.5 build

You can also use analog inputs as digital inputs, by the way. Analog temp inputs have a built in pullup to 5 volts, and analog volt inputs have a very weak pulldown to ground. Oh kick ass. I think that just solved that issue then. Thanks! Any ideas on speedo output? Thinking of just putting it as a...

Re: VAG ME7.5 build

Doing some finalizing of wiring and realizing I'm running out of digital inputs lol. VAG ecus love to know what's going on with things like cruise, clutch and brake positions. May have to ditch brake switch in favor of the option of using my cruise control stalk to do table switching in the future. ...

where do you keep your pinout notes? excel or google?
Excel. Once this ecu is in the car and running, I'll post up my finalized pinout and harness setup.

Re: VAG ME7.5 build

Small update. Between being a single full time dad to two monsters and work being crazy, not a ton of progress has been made. I was hoping to have this patch harness finished up and aimed at a test fire in the car this weekend, but it may be a stretch. Small progress is still progress though! Just a...

I understand you're busy, I was pointing out that those inputs are part of the factory ecu pinout and they are listed a couple of times in the spreadsheet. These arent inputs I added in, they're factory. I am completely interested in helping, which is why I post what I know about these exact cars. P...

Re: Hellen 121 ME7 for VAG PnP ECU

I would opt for the 2001 A4 pinout. Its pretty much the same thing but with VVT, traction control and WBO2. You can see the similarities with other engine codes so I assume those would be there anyway. Just thought it was worth mentioning. On a side note, the ecu sees the TC button IIRC, so you can ...

Re: Hellen 121 ME7 for VAG PnP ECU

What is a "blank?" Is that what it sounds like, a bare PCB? Yep. They fabricate min 5 PCB but assembly min is 2. Which means that for prototypes you end up with three souvenirs. "Test" would mean "you get a totally untested PCB and you have to decide what to do with it"...

I can fill this in tonight when I get home from work, if it helps any. I'm currently building a 1.8t pnp harness for a Proteus, so its relatively fresh in my mind.

Combined, the ecus have ran several 100K Kilometers in daily drives. I have driven over 100K myself. The firmware is a mix derived fro...

Re: Hellen ECU :: preview and rumours

As far is I understand, you have a ME7.5/ME7.1/ME7.1.1-compatible ECU which uses a 121-pin connector (81pin+40pin). Currently we developed a Hellen81 board design, which is a 81-pin only version for ME7.8.8/ME7.9.7/M7.9.7/Yanvar7.2/Micas10.3, and which is NOT pin-compatible with Audi/VW ME7.x. So y...
