      Immobilizer? Also check and re-check that you have attached ALL grounds. This is the most common and often time a largely overlooked or missed by mistake when doing electrical work.

      can someone steer me in the right direction on a immobilizer defeat and how much for that ?

      Hey , I got it running thanks to the immo. delete from C2!. Just waiting on the Axles from the Drive shaft shop..any day now..and I should be able to drive it ..
      I still have issues with the wiring ..well not knowing what is what ...
      I thought maybe I would post it on here , maybe someone knows..

      From the Cluster : I have a Brown/Yellow wire - I think traction control ..maybe not using ???
      Purple/White - I marked it windshield wiper fluid..I don't know where to
      tie it in . to make it not show on the Cluster.
      Twisted Pair: Orange/Brown and Orange/Green
      2 Sets of Twisted Pair: Orange/Black and Orange Brown
      Twisted Pair: Green/Black

      And then from the Cluster too, I know these come off the Blue Pin :

      yellow/Green;Purple/Black;Gray/Red;Red/Purple;Gray/White;Yellow;Blue/White;Brown/Black;Black/White; Brown/Yellow;Gray/Black and Gray/Blue.

      From the White plug of the Five : Black wire , 2 White/Red wires, and 1 Brown/White wire

      From the ECM : 1 Black/White wire

      From the Orange Plug of the Five: I have a Blue/White wire( I marked it speed
      sensor .. But really don't know ..

      And then there is the Test port or OB whatever ...I don't know where to wire it in , but I suspect it goes the the cluster with similiar wire colors.. but there are 2 (which ones?)
      Soooo, : Twisted pair Orange/Black and Orange/Brown
      2 Brown---suspect grounds
      1 White/Red
      1 Red/White
      1 Black/Blue
      and 1 Gray/White
      Sorry for the rambling ..just trying to figure it out ..with all that not connected to anything and it runs , I am not sure what I need to leave un-hooked and what I need to wire in ..
      but for sure I need the OB port ..
      Thanks

      Damn, I was thinking the other day about this thread and how little action its had the past months.

      Good to hear the Immo defeat worked out, I really, really want to see this thing run.. Any estimates of how heavy this monster is?

      Ok .. I didn't take a pic or video.. but I drove it today..and was disappointed.
      the rack and pinion doesn't have enough travel. It doesn't turn tight at all
      The shifter needs to be relocated. Farther back. Doesn't feel too good.
      I have an oil leak on something called a camshaft adjustment valve..it says to replace the o ring
      anytime you remove it.. ....stealership says they don't sell it?????
      My master cylinder is mounted pretty low so I have no brakes with all the air out of it..all
      The fluid just comes back to the reservoir. And then to top it all off I have no reverse.
      So here we go .. out the driveway. First gear is good .switch to second. Feels like a big go cart!! Feels light.
      go about 1/2 mile to the end of the road.. start pumping the brakes. Finally got it slowed down..thankfully not going fast. Start to make the turn. Just to turn around. And it just isn't sharp enough.. no problem. Put it in reverse .. hmm I don't have it .. jump out of it and push it backwards. So then I putt putted home slowly ..
      So I am to say the least aggravated.

      You built a car from scratch and made it 1/2 a mile without dying in a blazing fireball, that's a pretty good start! the rest is annoying, but can be sorted! Well done man!

      couldn't agree with this more.



      keep at it, man... im excited for seeing it completely done. Also, for that part the dealership says they don't sell, go thru a local shop. I bet they'll sell it to a shop.

      Thanks guys.. really. I got a residual valve from a local shop for the brakes...they said it would fix that problem.
      I put a new o ring in the oil leak problem.. thanks Josh.
      I am shopping for a new rack n pinion. And I will just have to do some work..

      Woohoo!!! First drive and those are the big issues!? That's awesome for a scratch built car! Glad to hear that's all coming together. What is the rack that's currently in there? Keep up the good work

      I used a billet aluminum rack like a Sandrail uses ..The reasoning behind it was that a few years back I built a sand car and it had no turning issues ..and the bump steer was a non issue. So , now it will be on ebay soon..

      This is beyond amazing, I'm blown away man. I wanna see this tearing up the road asap.

    25. 05-28-2012 04:37 PM #100
      Thanks man...
      ok I had to order a new rack..got a mustang 2 for little or nothing..
      but had to totally redue every thing associated with that. Arms heim joints etc.
      This morning I got to move my shifter and brace it like it needs to be.
      I need to drive it to see if I still don't have reverse.
      The BRAKES.......I put a 2 pound residual valve in the line so the fluid doesn't
      Come back to the resivoir.. but for some reason this isn't working..
      I have to pump it to have brakes.
      Soooooooo maybe try to drive it tomorrow if I can get it done ..
      If not it will be Wednesday. I will this time have something to show..
