trouble shooting

Recommended Posts

hey guys

 

just bought a secondhand power fc for my s13 redtop.

Using the standard computer my car will start and run but when i plug the PFC in it wont start. The tune in the PFC is pretty similar to my setup now apart from the turbo being a 3071 instead of 2876 and the fuel i'm running being E85.

Having never owned a PFC before i have no idea what i should be looking for, the only thing I can tel is it does not sound like my fuel pump is priming when the PFC is plug in. It turns over but it won't fire, the hand controller is not turning on(I don't know whether it should or not).

Have I just bought a dodgy PFC or is it something I should get an electrician to look at?

Here is a really handy site for all things PFC related:

It's going to either be a faulty PFC or the tune from the previous owner is way different from what you have been told.

 

The best thing would be to take it to a pro - the tune will need to be re-done anyway, even if the unit is working OK.

Cheers for that bud according to that site it should turn on and be adjustable so I'm thinking it's stuffed, but I will take it to my tuners tommorow
