In the car I am powering it with a constant 12v from the memory wire of the radio, no jack, I soldered the wires direct to the jack pads on the back of the board. Ill have to check but theres a chance it might be closer to 14 volts when running.

On the bench I am powering it with the computer USB power.

I have all the boards mounted with soft rubber hose on the screws on both sides, to hopefully keep it from stressing joints.

One thing I noticed on the bench is the light on the board that normally flashes at a precise regular pace is now erratic and sometimes not even on at all.

I just went out and plugged it into the car. It went to the parameter setting screen, I went through the parameters, seemed to work ok. Didnt start the car or anything. On the bench I tried it at 10 or 20 times and it wouldnt run right at all.

Wonder if theres a voltage issue?

I havent done "verify". What does it do, just compare the flashed program with the original and make sure it is the same? This stuff is new to me so I havent messed with anything Im not familiar with.
