I have a project that works find when the BDM is connected to the project system. When the project is power cycled the project will no longer work correctly. It can be reset with the BDM and reset button and it work correctly also. I am using a HCS08 SH8 processor and the project has the watchdog disabled. With the BDM connected the project comes up and displays information on the 2 line LCD attached to the serial port. After a power reset of the project the display either shows nothing or strange characters. Hard to tell if anything else if working correctly since the status is displayed on the LCD.
