Ryan, with all of the problems of getting my EEC wet, I have been thinking about running an extension to move it inside the cab. How hard would it be for you to make something? I'm thinking 5 feet long would probably be sufficient to put it somewhere safe. If you need, I can email on you RJM site. Thanks.
JK...do you have any pics of this that you could provide? That would be a big help. Thanks.this sounds like another EEC problem man, this does suck i have a thread up asking about ideas on waterproofing the EEC box but the prob is it has to have ventilation, your best bet is to have an extension made and put it somewhere inside and up a little higher,
ive gone through 3 in the last couple months from water damage we opened all of them and they were full of water, i had to make a harness useing one from my parts truck, and it worked great, it hasnt got wet and its a bit easier to get to now under the dash
heres the thread:
There are a number of rubber incased voltage resistors on the harness, most of which are small and Tan in color once you clean off the grease and grime.....lol lol
IDM= ignition diagnostic monitor is usually located up top where the harness comes across the drivers side valve cover or near the IAT = intake air temp sensor.
It looks like a LARGE eraser, mine is green with a --W-- symbol on each side with 2 wires, one on each end. The IDM is inside the rubber eraser case and IIRC I got a new one from Ryan, aka Fireguy50 a few years ago for about $1.00 and it's been fine since then......the new resistor is smaller then the old ones.
You need to sodder the wires and resistor together nicely but don't overheat the process otherwise you'll fry the new one.
I managed to save the old rubber case by cutting it in half neatly, rewired it then used a tiny bit of Ultra Copper RTV around the outer edge of the rubber case away from the resistor to hold it together then taped it with a label to easily identify it.
You not want or need to go that far, I just like to keep as many original parts as possible ~
Good Luck ~
As long as it's merely open, you should be all right but...why would you cut that line? The PCM merely completes a ground path when the MIL should be illuminated.
