I noticed today that the two programable outputs that i have on the car witch are shift light and an IC water sprayer work but don't work the why i'd understand them to work, i set the shift light to come on when rpm>6500 and tps>30 i noticed that it comes on when it just meets one of those setting and not both like i would think the (and) would make them both need to be met??
Its not a big deal to me but wanted to see if it me or something else!

The MSQ is the opposite: You have set it to come on when RPM < 6500 and TPS < 50. However, the "Trigger Value" is zero - so that means turn the output off when these criteria are met, and on whenever they aren't.
So from what I read it seems that I need to have my trigger value set to 1??? My outputs work just not the and part.. So if I'm sitting in my drive and push the pedal past 50 engine off it turns the shift light on or if I rev past 6500 it comes on but the way I have it set it should only come on if both are met..
You need to use a trigger of "1" and use ">" (greater than) for the conditions.
Presently you are using negative logic, in that case the "and" works like "or" i.e."if rpm is LESS THAN your set point AND tps is LESS THAN than set point then turn light OFF." That is the same as "if rpm is greater than your set point OR tps is greater than set point then turn light on."
What you actually want is "if rpm is GREATER THAN your set point AND tps is GREATER THAN set point then turn light ON."
I'm not sure why you need the TPS element though.
