You also say that you must jump start your car. If your car starts with the power of another car and won't with just your battery it is probably your battery. http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/new...reeway-electrical-problems.html#post151165661
I'll try fixing the tach. If it don't work and if i put in a tach would i need the coil pack? ahah nvm ill search that site.
And for the jump start, i should've been more specific with that. But meaning i have to take a wire and manually connect it from the battery to the starter while the key is turned on for it to start. ?? should i double check the wirings or is there something about the coil pack.
Will try that out when the car comes in. Being towed to my place this weekend. Thanks. and more questions in the future
Half-true. That guide is only going to help if he has a '90 harness; i.e., that connector on which to apply the fix is a '90 only item.
If it's got a '93 harness, then it likely has a '91+ coil and PTU. In that configuration, your 1990 tachometer will not work correctly (if at all) and the easy way around it would be to swap in a '91+ tachometer.
i do have a 90's harness from a while ago, but not sure if the coil pack is still there. would it be easier to swap the harness? what sensors would i need to change what has been changed or would it but just a plug in thing. How much of a difference in harness is the 90's from the 93's. Or the dash harness are also the same?
You can read about the engine wiring harness differences here: http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/articles-electrical-wiring/412841-1990-engine-control-wiring-harness.html.
The easy way around this depends on what you have. Determine what you have and we can go from there. But based on what you've told us, swapping the tachometer is infinitely easier than swapping harnesses.
Cool thanks. i will take some pictures and guess ill have to find a tacho. thats the 93 cluster i have to find right.
