DashDaq overheating?

I've been running the DashDaq for 2 months or so now, I have it mounted up in the top left of the windshield. I've noticed that if I leave the truck out in the sun for a good amount of time when I turn the DashDaq on it will work fine for a short time then I will loose all signals except for rail pressure. If I wait to turn on the DashDaq until the truck is running and point the a/c vent up towards it for a min. it will have no problems. Has anyone else had problems like this?

That doesn't sound like something caused from overheating, but you never know. The DashDAQ does not like extreme heat.

I thought it was kinda odd to loose all the signals except the rail pressure, figured I would loose everything if it overheated. I tested it several different ways and the only time it does it is if it is hot. When it does do it I try to just turn it off then back on and the same thing occurs until I cool it down.....It doesn't happen all that often, just curious if anyone else had experienced this.

Yep, mine does the exact same thing and will also completely freeze up if left in the sun. Kinda makes you wonder why they made the unit black in color Also you might want to read this Tech Support - DashDAQ, "SD" Card, and Hot Weather

Yep, mine lockup up earlier, thats what got me thinking about it again. Maybe I'll just look into relocating it.

Are you leaving the DashDAQ on when you shut the truck off?

I always shut mine off by just touching the little black button once. It doesn't actually shut it all the way off, it just puts it to sleep. However, it doesn't matter. If my DashDaq gets hot enough by sitting in the sun, it will either freeze up entirely, or will lose the signals. I had it into drewtech once to fix the light sensor on it, and they sent it back with a note that said never to leave it in the sun, or it could possibly void the warranty and cause damage

I built a shade for mine out of plastic, don't leave the sd card in it. No problems since I have it in the "shade" I've registered 120* in the cab this summer.

I don't have issues with mine either. My windows are tinted pretty dark though, and I have it above the steering column in front of the RPM gauge on the dash.
