Hang in there Cajunwarrior. It is much harder to get this done over the Internet than in person. If you have a trailer, a case of beer and some cooked crayfish, maybe you can trailer to a member kind of close to you in Louisiana, Ole Mis, Georgia, Kentucky, or Tennessee.

Looks like REPII offered to help, and he is nearby, right?

I think I read the PC3 has been removed and I think it was installed with one of those crimp pieces of crap. If that is true, look at your wire that it was crimped to.

If that crimp piece of crap is not used properly it all but cuts your wire in half. Once removed (and even while installed) it can give intermittent problems. Especially once the crimp piece of crap is removed....

Almost sounds like that to me.....did I mention those crimp things are pieces of crap?....lmao

This type of crimp came with the PCIII when I got it.


I think it was blue but the same thing. The way it installs on the TPS wire is where I have seen problems. These crimps are called IDC (Insulation Displacement Crimp) It has a narrow slit that the wire goes into. When closed it cuts through the insulation and gives a connection. Installed properly, they are good in a pinch.

You mentioned you removed your PCIII, do you remember yours having this style of crimp on the TPS wire? If you do, look back to that wire and you will see the insulation is cut through and the wire can bend freely at that point. Since there are only a few strands making up the wire, if the crimp was not installed correctly, it oftens cuts a few of the strands too. Often leads to intermittent problems.

Worse, is once removed, the insulation no longer is congruent and the wire is able to flop. Few flops, intermittent performance arrives as some of the strands (if not all) have been severed.

This might not be your problem at all but well worth checking. If you removed the PCIII and one of these crimps, I would suggest cutting the wire completely and soldering it back together to be sure it's right. Cover it with shrinktubing and then you know this is not a problem now or in the future.

I am happy to try to keep you from bailing on the bike. I want you to enjoy it, cause it's a hoot, a real stump puller and handles very nicely.

I have circled the crimp on T-Tap connector in question. These connectors are notorious sources of bad connections! the connector needs to be removed from the TPS wire, I would then repair the TPS wire with solder and heat shrink, or quality tape such as super88.
