Are you getting the correct pins? If you look closely at the [email protected] plug, it will have #'* on it.

It does not matter if you jumper it with the doors open. Sorry

Yea, as I said above, I've even taken the hush panel down to confirm I'm connecting black to black white. And still pins 8 to 4. I'll go take a super close look at the connector with a flashlight to super triple confirm I'm getting the right ones.

Would for some reason it happen to be different wires on my car?

Thanks!

Here'* a pic of the connector removed, with the jumper installed. So I'm super sure I'm jumpering the right things now.



Another:


Is there a specific fuse I should be checking that controls this system?

I would like to thank Cheetah muchly for his time!

Now, does any have a pinout diagram for that port? I just wanted to check which were voltage or ground lines and such, cause we weren't really able to get any readings off any of the pins, so I wanted to double check things are working.

Cheetah also suggested it may be the "RKE" the brain for the locking system as I understand it to be. Is there a foolproof way of checking this guy?

Thanks everyone.

Alright, here'* the pin assignments:
Pin
1. Not Used
2. Class 2 serial Data (PPL Wire)
3. Not Used
4. Ground (BLK Wire)
5. Ground (BLK/WHT Wire)
6-15. Not Used
16. Batt Positive (ORN Wire)

This info was taken from an 01 FSM. Functionality should be identical, wire color may not be. Hopw this helps a little bit.

according to the 99 fsm, the RFA is in the passenger compartment, below the right corner of the ip (bottom of the ip fuse panel)

I FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must be blind, or retarded or somethin, but with your help, and I was talking to Cheetah on the phone at the time we managed to find the damn thing.

Now to open'r up, and/or get a new one!

Well opening it up yielded nothing, nothing appears to be damaged at all, infact it looks brand new, then I guess just to getting a new one! :P

1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Use a fused jumper wire in order to jumper the DLC terminal 8 (BLK/WHT) to terminal 4 (BLK).
Wait a minute, something doesn't add up here. DLC Terminal 8 is not used. If there is something I don't understand, someone please fill me in. I'd hold on replacing the RFA just yet. I'm not saying the RFA isn't at fault, but before replacement, I'd ensure that everything else is in order.
