Shift Kit installation

howdy

I bought a shift kit from a fella off ebay, he must have bought it off 9psieb but anyhoo, it didnt come with any instructions, so if anyone can please just give me a quick run down on what to do, im quite good with the ole soldering iron so it doesnt have to be every last detail.

Just where the green wire joins, where the blue wire joins. And what i have to do with the wires i join it to.

Cheers ryan

Re: Shift Kit installation

i couldnt find anything on there other than what resistors to use and what pins, but i dont know where to find the pins, and i already have a kit that i bought from someone on ebay. Its a black box with a green and a blue wire out the one end, and a white thick wire and a blue wire out the other end. It would be great if someone could just give me a brief run down where to join them, where to find where im joining them, and any other helpful things to look out for.

Thanks in advance

Re: Shift Kit installation

the pins are the wires coming out of the ECU. Look on top of the ECU for the numbers and u have to do some counting make sure u get the right one. Or be like me and end up wiring one to an injector . I cant exactly remember the pin numbers tho so cant help u there.

Re: Shift Kit installation

i figured it all out, turned out to be pin 57 and pin 38, the ford computer doesnt tell you which way the middle set goes, i figured the only way to tell was count both ways, and what do ya know only one way has a wire going into pin 38 from the one way, and the other is just a hole.

But i must say it kinda sucks, i havnt been getting any kind of chirping or 1st to second stuff. even when i wack it into first and rev it almost all the way out and then push it into second.

Sometimes i wonder if its even on?

Re: Shift Kit installation

The kits work and ifits right you will know when its on alright.

Check the wiring and pins again. Check the shift kit with a multi meter and read out the resistances in the on and off across the S5 wire.

Re: Shift Kit installation
