Took it out of the car and powered it up on the bench. Only puts out 1V on the H line. Guess I'll have to buy a new one. If anyone has one available, let me know!Yep, SRS unit is the one bringing it down. Everything plugged in except SRS connector B, and my OBDIIC&C gauge is working again. Throwing about a million codes right now though
No change after disconnecting rostra.So having disconnected the rostra what codes do you have now?
Have you checked the wiring diagrams between the earlier car and the 2005 they might be subtly different
I do indeed have a mini BCM interceptor installed. Looks like I neglected to document that.No changes in IMA compartment are necessary between a 2000 and a 2005 model for a basic LTO conversion. But BCM Interceptor with 2000/2001 programming will NOT work in the 2005 as discovered here. So if you've got one of those, best to remove it. I don't think Peter finalized the code for it, as I was the only one attempting to use BCM Interceptor in a 2005 w/ LTO.
That car also gets P1437, but it's only occasional (every couple months). I haven't done the MCM mod on it to stop it from happening, but I should be getting the car back in July (owner going out of town for an extended period) and I hope to fix it at that time. It's got the 40% hack.
No you can't do that.So I'm rewiring this from the beginning, basically. Start with my 2005 BCM and MCM, no BCM Interceptor, no current hack, no IMAC&C, no VPIN pre-resistors.
Looking at the BCM fooler - instead of using an optocoupler to switch the battery voltage, could we just take BATT+ from the other side of the main contactor? I confess I don't know much about how the main and bypass contactors are triggered or how they interact.
Got it. same story with the bypass contactor I assume?No you can't do that.
The MCM has to see the voltage via the BCM fooler and MCM E plug before it will turn on the contactor.
