I plugged in my dsmlink and checked the code... Air Intake Temperature Circuit ... The car idles right, it seems to be running slightly rich at idle and my airflow/rev is slightly low also.
I thought i might have made a wiring mistake and this is what i had the first time i wired it up:
2g PIN - 1g wire color
1 - Green wire, red line, red stripes
2 - Green wire, yellow line, red stripes
3 - green wire, blue line, red stripes
4 - Red wire, black stripes
5 - Green wire, black line, Red stripes
6 - Green wire, white line, red stripes
7 - Green wire, orange line, Red stripes
8 - nothing
Now i looked at vfaq and it seems like i had pins 6 and 7 wrong... so i switched em. Still exactly the same. The vfaq instructions have confused me every time i look at it so thats why i thought i wired it incorrectly.
Does anyone know if i wired it correctly?
Which one was right, how i have it posted up there, or with pins 6 and 7 switched?
Could the maf be bad?
The plug i used for the 2g maf was a 1g power transistor plug so i had to take it apart according to vfaq and move one wire... could i have damaged the wiring in the plug while pulling the other one?
Anyone run into this problem and know how to troubleshoot?
i posted up on the dsmlink forums also with a couple logs but i havent gotten any responses yet.
any help is appreciated
i have also done this mod with the same transistor plug
ok so you moved the yellow wire with a green stripe to the unused pin correct? (pin 8 to pin 5)
your wire colors must be faded all to hell or something there are no green wires.
you dont need to know the wire colors anyways.
if you look at the vfaq dont even look at the blue numbers that is what is confusing you. just match the wires to the right spot just by only looking at the 2 pictures with the numbers in pink.
like the first one
(pin 1) first wire on the left of the transistor plug
that solders up to the bottom row spot on the far right.
(pin 2) second wire from the left on the transistor plug
that solders up to the top row spot in the center
(pin 3) third wire from the left on the transistor plug
that solders up to the bottom row second spot from the left
(pin 4) fourth wire from the left on the transistor plug
that solders up to the bottom row third spot from the left
(pin 5) fifth wire from the left on the transistor plug
that solders up to the top row far left spot
(pin 6) sixth wire from the left on the transisor plug
that solders up to the top row far right spot
(pin 7) the far right wire on the transistor plug
that solders up to the bottom row far left spot
and thats it you should be good to go.
just make sure none of the wires that you solder are in contact with eachother then rtv it up and let it dry. (make sure it works first)
hope this helped
