Default PCV and QEM

What are the settings that everyone is using for their PCV and quick shifter. Mine is acting funny. Like I have to double tap the shifter to get it to go into the next gear. It seems the PCV is killing fuel after I release the shifter.

Specifically what type of sensor are you using "Normally Open" or "Normally Closed"? Also what are your kill times?

Switch Type - Normally Closed
Minimum RPM - 3000
Shift interval - 250
Kill Time all shifts - 65.00

Well that sucks. I have been on the phone with PC three times now and my settings are set very similar to yours.

I was finally able to pin point the problem. The QEM registers the initial press of the lever but the PCV and QEM will not kill fuel until the lever is released. I know the switch is "Normally Closed" because the QEM and PCV will not register a shift with it in the "Normally Open" position.

I wonder if there is anyway to do a hard reset on both the PCV and QEM?

I thought normally open or normally closed depends on which shift pattern you are running?

Nope...PC started using Normally Closed switches with their PCV. I believe they used Normally Open on their PCIII switches. I could be mistaken, but that is what I have found during my endless research on my problem.

Did you figure this out yet. We changed the QEM last year and they now are looking for a NORMALLY OPEN style sensor. YOu can send a pic of the QEM to me and I can verify which one you have and we can also test the sensor to see which one you have. dusty@dynojet.com
