showjyr I have a Mean Green alternator off my 4.0 and would love to use it.
I'm going to use an alternator relocation bracket to swap my alt to the passenger side anyway and I can make or modify brackets.
I'm not going to be in the shop for a few days to physically look at anything wiring or pulley/belt wise.
Anyone know if it's possible to run the Mean Green? It's the same dimensions and bolts on the same as stock.

Yes, all the grounds are attached but it did go back and put star washers in them too.

Last Saturday was the first fire-up attempt and it went pretty well except that while it does fire right up, it won't stay running. Throws a P0641 code every time (low voltage 5V reference 1) and dies in about 15 seconds. I've had the PCM checked and the vendor says that all the 5V's are fine but it wouldn't start again this Saturday. Some of the sensors are showing 3.7 volts when checked with a multi-meter. Battery is sitting at 12.4V's.

Any suggestions?





Good horns finally:



Brought it home from my good friend's house that did a lot of the work (couldn't have done it without him, I helped really ...):



Still a ton of little things to do, but it is good to have it home again!

cheapthrillb2 Alright got my ls swap in and running, tuning almost done. I decided to swap in a 05-06 fuel tank and pump module.

I retained my 04 filler neck.

I do not have anything hooked up to the tank other then the filler neck, breather line off the filler, and the feed line off pump.

The large connector for evap currently not hooked to anything.

This thing takes gas so poorly. Like 5 minutes to feed in 2 gallons. Obviously not venting well.

Any thought? I do not have any of the smog parts/pieces from the 05 and the 04 stuff is different.

#1 is not there, because I dont have the line where it connects at #2
#3 is hooked to filler neck

Torque app now has Oil Pressure PID!!! - Page 3 - LS1GTO.com Forums

PID: 22115c
Min Value: 0
Max Value: 100 # This puts the needle at 12 o'clock at 50 psi
Scale: x1
Unit: psi
Equation: (A*0.65)-17.5
OBD Header: Auto

His adjustment factor to zero the value was 17.5 Mine seems to be closer to 18.5

If anyone is going to be at KOH that has a scan tool that shows oil pressure, it would be awesome to verify this value! PM/Email me.
Anyone else try this on torque app yet? Mine worked but im showing low (4-5psi at idle) oil pressure and am going to verify with a mechanical gauge this afternoon.

cheapthrillb2 Thoughts on 4L65E RANGE Sensor connector pins 9-10-11-12

It starts and computer sees each gear as I run through selector.

Looks like 10 is just reverse lights.

9-11-12 for starting when in park/neutral?

EDIT: One thing you would have learned if you read the thread - There is nothing painless about using Painless. They suck, M'Kay...
I just looked back through everything and I guess it's wired for both...I just need to figure out what to use when I get back in the shop and can physically look at it.

This is the only issue I've had with the harness and it's nothing to do with them just the setup I'm using. Why do you say they suck? Everything else is where it should be and pretty simple.

This thread is 591 pages and nearly 6000 posts...I started reading through but it's redundant and there's so many options a lot doesn't apply...not to mention conflicting info.

It all depends how they wired your harness

So as I was hoping after some back and forth with Painless I can just cut the output speed sensor from their harness and splice on a pigtail for the 91+ GM 205.
Now I just need to find the correct pigtail.



Still haven't looked into the Wrangler PCM pinouts...

cheapthrillb2 Nevermind found it at c103. It switching from Blue to blue/white at the connector threw me.

Well atleast the coolant and volt gauge work. But no oil pressure or fuel level. Back at it.

I will tear into the wiring this week.

I did the same, cut the wire a foot or so from the pcm connector. Where did you find the wire to hook back up to it?

I'm a fan of the Volvo two speed fan. Just my two cents though. I run mine without a shroud and have zero issues.

Can anyone tell me what the pinouts are on a 2006 TJ PCM? Specifically the 3rd from left connector...it's the only one still connected and ties into the PDC/cab.
I'm not using any factory gauges and running a TH400 so no electronics there.
I'd like to remove the PCM completely but I'm not sure if there's anything at all I may need.


Second is the VSS...I had my 205 transfer converted to VSS but my Painless harness only has connections for a 4l60 trans, two of which are input speed and output speed...the VSS on my transfer is NOT the same connector as either.
There is a line on the dash side that's labeled VSS for the speedo...how could I go about connection the transfer VSS?

Jealous... I'm running a 14 bolt so low pinion... 1410 u joints help but still pushing it for my setup. Everyone's will be a little different
