Your basic repair guide like chiltons shows wiring diagrams....

please do some research on that chip befor you install it, It's been talked about many times that chips dont work with our vehicles... you have to tune your computer.
out of curiosity how is it telling you to hook it up?

Its like the HSRK.... Im pretty sure the updated sensor will put the computer into burst mode.
It cant handle the upgraded signal. It wont be able to interpret it and assume something is wrong and will put the car in failsafe mode. It will cripple you.

I tried the upgraded IAT sensor and burst mode followed.
Good luck!!

Chips?


I LOVE CHIPS!!!!!!

I hope you were talking abput potato chips, because if you were not then the 17 year old kid who does not have much money just threw his money in a SCAM.

It would be beneficial for someone who does not have much money to RESEARCH THE HELL out of any purchases before making them.

Sorry but you get the double Gibbs smack

I definitely would NOT do that chip 'down'-grade. These cars won't take kindly to that. If you want better fuel efficiencies, you'll need to flash your rom, or do some hardware upgrades, which mostly means getting a job and paying some good money.

I have the Haynes repair manual and the wiring diagrams are broke down for each system of the car (starting charging, exterior lighting, interior lighting, warning system, heating and air, and a lot more) so I would need to know what you are trying to do. Which by the looks of the other posts you are trying to wire in some kind of performance "chip". I would recommend not doing this if you are as unexperienced as you have let on. What chip did you get? There are a lot of scams out there, and you probably should just return it before causing problems that can be more expensive to repair.

i baught a gforce performance chip. my oncle baught one for his ford edge 2009 and he is an experienced guy into cars and stuff. he said the fuel efficiency accually is better and the power u get is a little bit better when u put full throtle. u can still feel the difference doh. these chips are made for every specific car so it takes time for them to make a chip for yuor car. thats what i udnerstand to allow about 2 weeks for production. i would like to test it out and see if it works and if it doesnt ill return it back.

what im wondering is what are the problems it could cause. i mean just a try out for about 50 miles cant cause any big difference. if it does anything wierd then ill just remove it. can it really do such important damage?

btw it says: Please allow at least 100 miles of driving for your car's factory ECU to fully "learn" the new settings of your GForce Chip.

Wise decision on sending it back. They definatly would not have taken it back after you tried it out. The chip would alter your air/fuel mixture, or at least make your car think it is adjusted. This could cause it to dump more fuel than the car can burn, which would result in raw fuel being dumped into your cylinders that will cause damage. This is why it is important to take care of any issues that turn your cel on, all those sensors are important for your car to understand what is going on. This is also why if you installed the chip your car would have to learn what is going on and it would try to adjust for the chip. Also wise decision on getting a repair manual to help you maintain your car!
