Re: KA24E-T ROMs Wanted

Hello guys, sorry to invade this topic, but i´m working on a Stanza ECU to put on my 89 240SX and i was wondering if, Nomad, can you send me the files you have??

Re: car will not start...

Ok, so i got some readings, tested the voltage on the positive pin (screw) of the starter and got 12.6v and when i turn the key to the ON position, it drops to arround 12.0v! For testing the resistance i used the ignition wire on the starter, so grounding on the frame and probing were the ignition w...

Re: car will not start...

Thanks nissanfanatic, i will test that as soon as i can and post here the numbers i get :)

To test the starter i´ll put the negative multimeter probe on any ground point (frame, engine) right? Remember, i have the battery on the trunk!

cheers

Re: car will not start...

Ok, thanks for your video and help, tomorrow i´ll do some more readings, and i will probably wait until the engine gives me another click/no start situation, so i can check the numers! I will remove the starter/solenoid from the engine and take it to a shop, to fix it! I was wondering if this could ...

I tested like on the video, and on the solenoids battery pin (Hot side) i get 12.7V, on the other pin (Non hot side), 0.0V! When i turn on the engine, i get a spiking to about 9.0...

Re: car will not start...

I understand you, it´s very hard :(
Can you tell me how can i test the signal from key to solenoid? If i read you post correctely, i should be getting a 12V peak on start up (on the solenoid to starter pin), and not 9V, right?

Thanks for the help

Ok thanks, i have one last question, What means TDC on compression stroke? From what i understand is when the nº1 piston is at the top, and i think a good way to check this, is removing the nº1 spark plug and use a screw driver or better, some kind of plastic stick, put it on the hole and it shoudn´...
