Man, paying someone else to do this is looking better and better. After 2 days now it'* still not done. I had one 2 wires left to locate. The first is the door locks, found it just couldn't splice in to it where I found it. The second is the starter output wire. I swear there is not one on the van. The chart says it'* a yellow wire. I went threw every wire I can find, under the dash, in the engine compartment, left, right, up, down. You name it. I found every combination of yelow there is, yellow with red, green, black, ect. But no just yellow. The chart also says its on the Ignition Switch Harness, I went threw EVER wire I could find, no yellow wire. I found a yellow with white, but no just yellow. So I gave up for a while, figuered I'd regroup. My wife wanted her van anyways. Closed it up, started it, what the heck? RPM jumping around, spedo jumping around, that'* odd. The remote starter is sitting on the work bench not plugged in. I shut it off, check the wires, nothing wrong here. Start it again and back out, seems a little jumpy. I take a run down the road, van wont shift past 2nd. Pull back in to shop. Start scratching my head, did I do something bad perhaps moving around a plug? Check everything. Start it, same thing. Ok, remove everything I did today. Start cutting wires. Nope, still doing it. Only have one left to remove, the tech wire, but it goes no where, it'* just a splice the ends at a plug that'* not plugged in. So I cut it, I can always solder it back together. Probelm solved, van ran perfectly. What could possible cause that? it'* just a wire, it'* not wrapped around anything, not plugged in, just ran over to where I was going to locate the remote starter. Any thoughts? Right now I'm thinking not using the tach wire, another option on this starter is to wrap a sparkplug wire. Also, any idea if there'* an error on teh chart I'm using, could the starter wire on teh Ignition Switch Harness be something other then yellow?
