    Ask me if you needed any help.

    I, for example, want to extend help to some one, provided that they need it (in the future). How am I supposed to say it to them?

    1- Ask me if you needed any help. or,
    2- Ask me if you need any help.

    Please call me/ask me if you need any help [in the future].

    This is an example of using the present simple to represent the future.
