Load one of the default maps that came with the software installation. Do you see rpm at least?
Does the fuel pump run? Is there spark? Does the injectors click when you crank it. You give no detail of what you are finding but yet want a solution.

Good day,

I had tried loading the 1.8 8v map, the car just cranks, there is spark fuel and everything, car engine trimming is set correctly...
i tested compression and everything is fine.

Not sure what trimming you have set correctly. Do you own a timing light? While cranking shoot the ignition timing and see where it fires. You most likely have either not enough fuel or the ignition timing is incorrect. Distributor or wated spark ? Again barely any info.

Well in that case add some more fuel in the fuel,table and see if it comes to life.
I am assuming you checked for correct fuel pressure and that the fuel lines are hooked up correctly for sure.

is the motor standard to the car, or an import 2 litre

if you fitted an import motor, you need to make sure that your distributor has a 4 slot trigger for the hall sensor and not one slot

i know that these import motors come with a wasted spark setup on the digifant systems, you will still see it getting spark but only intermittently when the hall sender triggers

even the local 2 litre motors have a 1 slot hall sender trigger, this needs to be changed out with the rotor from the 1800 distributor and refitted

otherwise you need to run your car on the wasted spark setting on the dicktator

Take screenshots of your setup settings and post it on here. That way we can help better with troubleshooting the problem you have.

Asking same questions as others above. Do you see rpm during cranking and how much.

The startup maps will start the car, provided all wiring is correct.

The single window on distributor will not work, you need 4 window dustributor.

Main setup page, ignition divide 2, cylinders 4, single coil selected, constant charge time of 2.5, trigger angle 42 and on output page trigger should be the default (falling) edge.

You say you have spark and fuel. How did you test/checked that?
