    Installing Power Commander

    Hi yeah so as some of you already know i recently bought a PC3usb from a forum member (thanks Mark)

    I have got the thing all wired in right now i think.. the injector wires are def all correct and its earthed but i cant get my head around the grey wire connection..
    official instructions say install a wire tap onto the middle wire of the unplugged TPS (the thing off side of throttle bodies) but it didnt come with a wire tap, only a metal blobby bit lol
    regardless to say i have got the grey wire connected nicely to the middle wire and im pretty sure thats sweet, but here is where it gets confusing:

    are you meant to plug the TPS back in?? the official instructions dont say either way but im guessing its left off...

    to further confuse me i then plugged in my netbook and fire up the software, connected OK and got the map etc but it showed throttle 22% lol.. it even flickered to 23% but it certainly didnt react when i opened the throttle and closed it, is this normal? i had the ignition on but didnt start the engine

    just seems a bit odd to me that you unplug the TPS and dont plug it back in again.. how is the ECU let alone the PC3 supposed to figure out where your throttle is at?
    oh and how cryptic is the o2 sensor/controller crap there is no guidance at all i could find on the net let alone any manuals or explanations on the official site, through dumb luck i found out it was the lambda sensor off the exhaust... 2 names for the same thing

    some advice on this would be much appreciated

    seriously?

    you would think they would mention something like that in the official guide.. lol i put alot of thought into it and figured there must be a reason they left out plugging it back in..

    probably a good thing i didnt try starting the engine eh xD least i know what to do tommorow thanks pat

    You answered your own question... how will it know where the throttle is without the TPS? . I guess they just assumed you'd know!

    Now all you have to do now is reset the throttle value in the pc3 thats why its reading 20% it should flicker around 0 ,little tab at the top, and bobs your aunte ,simplesssss
