Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Started it up this morning with reducer at around 8c and switched over perfectly again so i think its safe to say that its all fixed, with such little effort too which is a surprise to me but i sure as hell am not complaining about that! @Brian_H Do you have any more details about that valve? When i...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Ok so i just got back from the shed which is in the middle on nowhere with 0 reception. Did some few maintenance bits on the car while i let the reducer/valve cool down enough to work with. And oh boy was it dirty!! Pulled the solenoid off and then unscrewed the valve. Had strange inner workings and...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Ok i will avoid taking the reducer apart as i can not smell or see and gas leaks around the reducer, i have tried unplugging the vacuum hose and again there was no smell of gas and no noticable draft coming from the reducer vacuum hose while the engine was running. Yes i believe brian pointed that o...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Okay will be taking apart the solenoid on the weekend and seeing how it is. Im not too sure hiw to fugure out where the pressure reg is referenced to. What are some key signs to show that a reducer would need a repair kit? Was thinking i might as well do that while im taking the solenoid off of the ...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Got up this morning and it threw the error at me again. https://i.imgur.com/0NUnI5G_d.jpg Got to work and switched the engine off for a few seconds and started it up, switching straight over to gas, was a little shakey with the switchover though. https://i.imgur.com/bU5s8hN_d.jpg https://i.imgur.com...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Ok thinking about it that actually makes quite a lot of sense for the pressure reading. I think ill have a look at the solenoid anyways just for peace of mind, what in a setup would you be looking for to make a decision like that on fuel overlap? I will also post a few pictures of the program which ...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

The tank does have a shutoff screw so ill be sure to remember that. And that sounds pretty straightforward so im a bit less worried now. Just went for a drive now and it threw the error again so connected my phone and just watched the data while i drove around on petrol. Noticed that the pressure wa...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

oh makes sense that it could block the injectors from opening. I have tried that and usually from cold start i have to wait until the reducer was at 70c before it switched over. Just ran out now for another cold start test and again it threw a low pressure fault, in fact it had almost 0 pressure htt...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Yea few more cold starts and hopefully it sticks, what kind of pressure is dangerous? Incase i go out in the morning and its on some oddly high pressure. I wish mine was a simple switch off and on fix but having to pull the car over after a few minutes driving to restart the engine was getting prett...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

went out for a drive just now and the reducer was at 20c with 1.01 pressure when i started the engine, once the engine was running the pressure shot up to 2.01 until the temp got to 26.5 where it switched over to gas and the pressure went back down to 1.32 like normal.

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Ok just did a test and backed up the firmware to the previous version. Checked the "hemi" option in the settings and started the car when it was at about 13c reducer temp. I setup a recording on the kme software and the second it hit 26.3 it switch over to lpg without a problem. now i just need to w...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

the picture of the settings was taken when the car was switched off, the freeze frame happened after the car warmed up. when the car finally did switch to gas i went into the diagnostics tab and manually switched it over from petrol to gas a few times and the solenoid on the reducer only clicked onc...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

All i did was backup the settings, installed the update then reinstalled the backup. As far as i remember there was no popup. Is there any harm in rolling back the firmware to see if that fixes any issues? Ill have a chance to check the Nevo settings tomorrow around mid day.

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

That was a lot to try and digest, but i have a question. If it is indeed a problem in the settings then is there any way for settings to change without using a laptop/mobile? Only curious because the system has ran completly fine for the last 6 months I've had the car. I have done a firmware update ...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Ran outside again and started the car up with the readings shown in this screenshot, again started straight to lpg even though the reducer is nowhere near where i need it to manually start up from cold start. i loosened the hose on the furthest side of the fuel filter. reducer > pressure sensor > fu...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

ok ill give that a go in a little bit, when i was looking online about what to do i came across a video saying to take off the vacuum hose while the engine was running to test the reducer, when i did this at the t piece connector the idle went a little crazy sucking air into the t piece and didnt se...
