Default Issues with JB4 on N55 F30 - 11-27-2021, 03:21 PM

I bought an N55 F30 this year and installed a JB4 a buddy gave me. I have always have issues when doing a hard pull where the car will hard jerk at the top end of a gear, little puff of smoke and sounds like marbles coming out the exhaust. Drivetrain error pops up sometimes. This happens in map2 and map 5, have not tried the other maps.

I bought a Bluetooth adapter a couple months ago to try and figure out the issue, I tried taking some logs and every time I do a hard pull all the gauges on the JB4 app freeze until I stop logging.

About a week after having the Bluetooth adapter on and trying to do logging my jb4 main board blew with one of the capacitors fried. I figured since that happened maybe the old jb4 was causing issues. But after buying a new board itís giving the same issues. The wiring harness still looks good I went through and checked all the wiring while it was off the car this week.

I think this also happens when I have no map on but still have the JB4 connected but have not tried this since getting the new main board installed.

I have installed charge pipe, ******* ********, cold air intake and one step colder plugs and new coils since purchasing.

Logs attached

You'll need to return all your user adjustment settings back to the default settings and then upload a proper log for review.

To properly evaluate the tuning, we'll need a full throttle JB4 log from 40-90mph on a safe private track.

Log with map 2 and I think I also logged map 0, both with sport+ both gave me sudden loss of power when full throttle. It does not do this with the JB4 out of the car. Could it be a bad harness?

Check and properly make sure that all connections and pins are exactly where they should be. Make sure as well that no cables were installed upside down or sideways.

Per your initial post you got the Jb4 from a buddy and the user adjustment settings are NOT set to the default settings. You'll need to return them to the default settings that can be found here.

As stated above, I would also recommend going over your install and posting pics for additional assistance.
