Many thanks Dan,
If you always get the fault warning nr. 7, it means that your pump is cycling too often. As per Ferrari specs, the pump should not prime during more than 4/5 secs and maximum every 15 secs. Also, the pressure should hold for a least 4/5 gear shifts.
If your pump primes more often than every 15 secs, except if you make really many down/up shifts like on track, it's a sign that you have a hydraulic leak (actuator or E-DIFF valve) or your accumulator is almost out of gas due to a worn internal NBR diaphragm. This can be easily checked with the SD3 or a manometer: if the pressure drops progressively without gear shifts, you have a leak somewhere - don't ignore the E-DIFF valve as a leak there is quite common. If the pressure remains constant but drops suddenly as soon as you make a gear shift, then you have a worn accumulator.
I'm sorry to say Dan but fluid flush and re-calibration won't fix the root cause of your issue.
As a temporary solution to make the Smart eMT ECU stop alerting you, you can reduce the rest time to 11 secs as explained in the above video but I highly recommend to get your car checked. A pump that is cycling too often will wear much faster.
Hope this helps you and please let us know the outcome.
As always, thanks for sharing great info.
Three weeks ago I had my F1 System fluid flushed, bled, system checked and calibrated using Leonardo computer by my independent mechanic. He said there were no system faults stored, no evidence of fluid leaks and my F1 system is now recalibrated per Ferrari Specs.
I still do get the 7 beeps from your eMT relay whenever I drive my car spiritedly. There are a few of us on the FChat board including me that get the 7 beeps after upgrading to your relay.
So my question is since my F1 system has recently been serviced and checked and recalibrated, no evidence of fluid leaks and I still get the 7 beeps – do you think I should get my Hydraulic Accumulator replaced ASAP so as not to trigger the 7 beeps issue instead of just adjusting the warning beeps?
Thanks always for all your help.
