    I agree with that, it sucks. For reliability's sake, I won't use mine, and it's so big an awkward, that to fit it back for testing is a real pain, I'd have to practically remove the driver's seat. So no I can't use it, it was a mistake buying it. It was great bench testing sofware to monitor the voltage, change paramenters, but once inside the car it sucked.

    The good thing is, for most people and myself included, theres really no need to monitor or change parameter all the time anyway. So its only used to change parameter once or twice, other than that the only time you should be using it is if something is going wrong and you want to know why.

    Its been about a week! absolutely no drain battery! So for anyone who has faint heart, and want to try. It works! make sure you have a deep cycle battery!

    PS. Anyone know where zootjeff is?! its been over a week since i contacted him about my other broke DSATX, and no answers!

    I am confused. Isnt 5V needed to keep the RAM powered to allow standby (sleep)? I thought the DSATX switches off 5V after a few seconds on default?
    So how exactly did you make it that it will stay on that long and not drain the battery?

    You have to program the DSATX using the brainstem to allow +5v to stay on for standby purposes.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I have found to make the brainstem more reliable was to do the power hack on it and feed 5v directly to the stem. Never had a problem with it that way, over 2 years now. SNO
