S300 with boost control option: not working

Post by toanz » Tue Aug 12, 2008 5:46 pm

I know theres lot of threads already, but none of them seem to be able to help.
I just recently got the boost control hardware installed onto my s300 ( by a hondata dealer ). Brought it home and connected the solenoid as shown in the tech diagrams. Went into the s300 and enabled boost control through a11. When turned the ignition on, i dont hear a click for the solenoid. So i checked the wiring. The thing is on my 0bd2a-obd1 conversion harness there was already a pin on a11. I connected my multimeter to check for a ground output from a11 which ignition turned on, and im not getting anything.

Would this be a fault in the installation of the boost control hardware or
is there something that im missing?

on the obd2 harness its not A11 on the obd1 its a11. its A7 on the obd2"A" harness.

that should solve your problem as long all the other components are correct.

just because its a hondata dealer doesnt mean mean they cant make a small mistake. no ones perfect even though we expect it.

hmm still not understanding this.

on the vehicle side (obd2a) on pin a7, i have a wire in there.
When i trace that wire through the conversion harness, it turns into
a11 on the obd1 side.

Take it back to the dealer to have them check everything (including your wiring in the car).
