i had to do that in mine on the ignition switch it should be the very bottom terminal.... check it with a voltmeter or light prob.... wierd thing on my car was that the pin 81 that wasnt suppose to be there was there not sure whyDo I need to run a wire from the ignition to the clutch switch to the starter even though I have it jumping the neutral switch wires?
You have the neutral and reverse wiring switched.A kind officer just let me know that the reverse lights are on all the time. Turns out they are on anytime the car is in gear, but not in neutral. Any ideas? I am thinking we used one of the wrong pins on the vehicle harness side. We used the Auto <> harness pigtails and just repinned them and connected them to the reverse and neutral sensors using spade terminals, so it is an easy fix if that is the issue. Reviewing the schematic now.
I just finished swapping a 97 2.2 auto into a 99 2.5 manual. If anyone tries to swap either way if you want to make your life easier you need a donor car because you will need the complete wiring harness behind the dash and back thru the car along with the dash pad harness and gauge cluster as well, and you have to make sure your donor car has the same options you want to work when put it back together. Once you have the dash out of both vehicles you can swap your pedal assemblies and shift linkages. You will need the tranny mounts and bolts and the first 2 pieces of the driveshaft will need to be switched because of the different lengths of the trannys. My rear differentials had the same gear ratio but you need to check the tags to see if they correspond to each other or not. You will need to swap the pressure sensors on the strut tower behind the air box (only if swapping to auto there is an extra sensor). Your wiring harness is your biggest obstacle because they are completely different between a manual and auto and the years (only for the fuel pump which is in the harness back thru the vehicle. 96 back 1 plug, 97-99 2 plug, 98-02 3 plug. I have seen 98's with 3 plugs and 99's with two). Depending on your year and computer being used (if your swapping to an auto) a ground is missing from the ecm plug you will know this by the check engine light coming on with codes p1742 and p1116, if you do then on the ecm plug turn it around and on the left side of the plug towards the center on the bottom there will be a blue W/ red stripe wire, a open hole, then a pink wire, in the open hole is where you need to make a ground, which you can do by pulling one of the plugs out of the other harness you have putting it into that open space and wiring it to the blue with red stripe wire beside it. Hope this helps you get started with your swap.
Put a speed sensor in the 5 speed. It screws in place of the cable drive.i just did the swap and ran into my only issue unles someone has an easy fix: did a 96 5mt from 1.8 into a 99rs and my speedo/miles don't work. trans was a cable style speed and my auto rs was electronic. anyone know a simple fix?
are you saying take the elctronic unit out of the auto and put it into the 5mt?Put a speed sensor in the 5 speed. It screws in place of the cable drive.
