Thank's Aqua,
I searched google but drew a blank with regards to the CT2N3904.
But I have lengthened the legs of the old transistor so I could test it in the slots of my multimeter.
A good transistor is reading 241Hfe gain
The bad transistor is reading 319Hfe gain.
It would seem that the 1900Ω resistance was an indication it was defective.
The minimum Hfe gain for this type of NPN transister is 100 and the max is 300.
Just thought i would clear that one up.

I have flashed it, but I haven't had a chance to drive with the new software yet.

First thing I always do is turn off autocancel mode after flashing though... and that 1 second window after 4 seconds is a bit twitchy to set (took me about 4 tries before I got it).

Is it possible to use button combinations for this? Say... regen+assist buttons for some (?) seconds at the same time for Toggle IMAC&C enable/disable, regen+cancel for OEM regen enable/disable, assist+cancel for OEM assist enable/disable.

Or maybe some kind of visual telltale like an LED flash past each hold boundary... like pressing and holding cancel and releasing after 2 flashes gives you autocancel, 3 flashes is IMAC&C enable/disable.

The buttons are just holding so many functions, and whether or not you've set a function correctly can only be determined experimentally. Did I hit battery protect mode or did I hold to long and disable regen completely?

Your right Sam, beside auto canceling on off that can be seem parked, until practice it's a maybe shot.
logically thinking .because we have a econ mode disable of regen or assist. We don't need battery handicap 12% and 10%. Econ mode does it better.and because 1 up click of regen Disable back ground charge, we don't need that too. The Econ regen disable can move to the first click regen, it's the same. And just move the Econ assist mode or disable asist to first click assist. secound click start the first click assist. Just ideas.

Combinations of buttons are more difficult for me at the moment.
I appreciate it is getting trickier to set functions/modes.

I think we need to explore a 20x4 serial lcd screen for the device to make it easier to use.
This would take the place of the led or possibly would work off one of the button connections.

Anyway it will be a sparkfun device in case you want to get one.

No guarantee's we can make it work but it's a logical way forward.
We have about 50% code space left in the pic.

Yea, why not? It's a wonderful box. and this could give life to this project which after this update is about finish as is, max out. More idea & stuff could then be possible or that led would feel empty. And it's cool green. Iam in.

I like it.

Would a 16x2 be a better fit for this project for compactness sake?

16x2 would be adequate, depends how much stuff people want on screen.

Well, given the extra space, it would be cool to have a bar indicator... say the middle is 0 and and the right 10 characters are 0-100 amps at 10 amps each. The left could be 0-50 in 5 amp increments. Like the stock dash indicators but showing how many amps are actually going in/out instead of handwaving "magic occurs" stuff. Or if that info's not in the stream, just load, it could just... do something related?

When I gave a first impression of zero assist mode, I may have been in handicap mode. so no assist because my soc was low.( same as stock but when full it's assist happy)that mode working fine.
the zero assist mode if this is it. Very strange as it act just like cruze control mode, as they is a assist green light on, and if you slow throttle it then the assist is going on in the background ( no car assist light as normal) and Soc run down to verified its just like cruse control. Making its harder understand were you are, also need to repeat press to get out of handicap mode, I wait till others test it out. Maybe bugs, All others mode fine.
