Do you know if any other people can work this way?

The in circuit programming is tricky. If you connect the programmer direct to your board, then that mans to let programmer to power your entire board. But the programmer only be designed to power a single chip.

I know in many cases, your target board need to be powered up and then only connect programmer signal lines to the board. The target chip should be powered by the board, not the programmer.

well the thing is locally nobody wants to give up any ' trade secrets ' so im sort of at the mercy of the internet.

i see, so would it be a good idea to maybe buy the power cable to the gq programmer? could it be that the usb wire isn't carrying enough power?

what type of methods could i look into to power the board?

i've seen schematics to clusters and i notice they have 12v pins and a ground pin.. also i notice the cable from my test clips fit perfect on the pins on the cluster

On your clip disconnect the positive of the IC. Use an external power supply to power up your cluster.
