timing connector pic?

i was wondering if some one could send me a pic of the ignition-timing connector this pic doesn't really help to much,also which side of the connector would i need to ground to trick the computer so i can do base timing?

Re: timing connector pic?

That pic doesn't help? It has a big stick pointing right at the connector.

It is the connector pictured left of your slave cylinder resevoir.

Re: timing connector pic?

well i don't have the plug there just wire the plug is missing from one of the previous owners so thats my reasoning for the color of wire and which one needs to be grounded.

Re: timing connector pic?

the way I remember it is "thumb-shaped". Your thumb should fit almost perfectly over it. Plus there's only one connector in there. I suck at spotting it visually on a jpg

Re: timing connector pic?

There is only one wire in that connector and it is yellow w/ red stripe.

Re: timing connector pic?

Is this the same plug?

It is yellow with a green main stripe and red little stripes.



When I grounded this and started the car I blew my 30A fuse for the ignition.

Re: timing connector pic?

That is the fuel pump test wire. It allows you to test the fp relay or if you put 12 volts on it you can bypass the fp relay and the fuel pump will turn on.

Re: timing connector pic?

I can't find this plug for the life of me!

Can anyone provide a pic of the actual connector?

Re: timing connector pic?

Holy crap! Look at the pic in the first post. There is a huge black rod () pointing right at the connector! (The lower one)

This is the connector, circled in red:



It is almost oval shaped, with room for 2 pins in it, but there is only one small pin inside when you remove the dust cover.

Re: timing connector pic?

OMFG...with closer inspection I found the culprit hiding within the loom

Since this thread is already resurrected here's my next question:

I ground the terminal set the idle to 750 (+/-50) all's good. Then when I disconnect it, the rpm's shoot up to 1200-1300rpm.

BTW, ISC, FIAV and EGR all removed.

Re: timing connector pic?

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure you're following the procedure to set the BASE TIMING, not idle. I'm sure you will find the answer if you search some, but I believe you need to also ground the diagnostic port for the idle setting.

Re: timing connector pic?

Since this is a How-To:

Ground engine plug + #10 pin (plug in logger)=base idle
Ground engine plug =base timing

Re: timing connector pic?

You have to ground both the timing connector and the pin on the diagnostic port for idle.
