I was thinking that but with the placement so close to the side marker I'm not sure the outer lights will illuminate to the sides well. But just in case i need to switch i wired the plugs alike so it can be a quick fix.

Today will consist of pulling out the headliner again and putting some sound deadening stuff up on the roof. I already did the inners of the rear qtr panels. With the head liner out i can also run gps antenna wiring and seal up that hole.

Nice. I hope it was as easy as we thought it would be. It should work like the newer gauge senders. They're about the same resistance.

 

A problem I'm running into is on cold starts the engine acts differently depending on the temperature reading from the fuel. At certain temperatures its harder to start and if I fake it out with a resistor when the tank is reallllllly cold (like 10°F) it doesn't like it. But if it's more like 40°F it's happy, but revs up to 2000rpm first and then back down to normal. Oh well... It shouldn't be much of a problem in SO-CAL.

I was actually going to ask you about the temp sensor. I don't have that hooked up yet, just the fuel level guage. I can't seem to locate the temp sensor wire in the 01 wiring. I printed out the fsm for the wiring but can't find it there either. Do you know which wire it is?

All for around $17. This made a huge difference, no more tin can.

I need to get some of that. My car sounds like sheet metal in high winds with every bump.

Its well worth pulling the headliner. I got the roll from Lowes. It is 6"x25' I could have used a little more but made that amount work. I took it for a test down a 14 mile washboard road and it was so different than the tin can I'm used to.

Haha if I remove the headliner I might end up just leaving it that way. Did you put yours back?

Yes I put mine back. Sure it looks like it should be thrown away but with a little patience it is back in. About 6 years ago i pulled the headliner out of my 06 wrx to put the gps antenna in that cat and ran out of patience, to this day it still does not have a headliner. Now my wife drives the wrx and i hear about it every day.

Not off the top of my head. I could take a look when I have some spare time, but that might be a while. The EA82 doesn't have a temp sensor in the tank, so there's nothing to hook it up to, anyways. I could help find the wire in the newer harness, but what to do with it, I don't know.

 

Maybe you could probe another car at the fuel tank to find it. They should be similar wire colors in a late model 1999 through 2003. Then trace it back to the connector by the passenger kickboard under the dash.

Ahhh but the ea82 does have a temp sensor, at least mine does. I ran that wire up to the connector where i know the 01 wire should be, i just don't know which wire it is in the 01 harness.

Awesome, thanks!
You mentioned 99-03, i have an 03 in the garage, I'll check that one out and trace some wires to the temp sensor. Good idea!

Other than that the only code i have is for emissions, but i don't have the 01 evap canister....yet.

Thanks again for your help.

I really hope i don't have any issues with the law using these lights. They are only 55w bulbs. I will be using the two inners as low and all four on as high. I know the bulb its self is they same you can buy for replacement in a Jeep or the like with round style lamps.


I'd expect problems. doesn't the Hella box say "for off road use only"? CAN state law ain't an easy one tp get by either, I'd imagine :-/

No prob on the wiring. Let us know what you find.

 

Superu, no kidding about CA, but it shouldn't be too bad if they're aimed right for the test. Shouldn't raise any flags.

Maybe I should just get an FI fuel tank and have a temp sensor, too.

Snap a picture for me, if you get a chance, of the sensor location.

You're stoked on that winch! Are you gonna put nylon cord to lighten it a bit?
