    I think I found the problem....

    Anyone else feel like looking behind their battery, beside the fuse box and tell me you have factory spliced wires wrapped in grey electrical tape.

    Well it does look like you’ve got one wrapped in grey.

    Have you had your engine replaced?

    Or is that original?

    Original, bought the car in Jan 2020 from the dealer, brand new. Nope, no replacement of anything yet.

    I'll be tearing apart the engine bay again this week, will have to have a look, I would hope it's something like an inline resistor/fuse/choke etc. or something pertaining to the 'consult' system, because that's a ton of tape for what one would hope would be a soldered connection at the very least.

    Right?!? I would never expect to see something spliced and wrapped that close to the ecu. Especially factory oem.

    It was the throttle body AGAIN!!
    For the record, gone thru 2 TBs. one when I had throttle controller installed. Oops.
    But then the second one went and it wasnít installed... *scratches head* so maybe it wasnít that??!
    Anyways, I swore that there was a short or open. Or dreadding something was fried internally.

    When I was about to start testing for shorts or opens from ecu to TB thatís when I saw that chonky wire and was thinking well well well , what do we have here??!

    It was not the problem. The TB was ****tered again.
    These TB do not like moving quickly. And are prone to issues. The mr20 valve is lighter and quicker response and 144% more volume. So I see why itís the preferred upgrade.

    Over the winter Iíll see if I can open it up and see what went wrong.
