Winkie time: failed phase sensor

The insulation was rock hard. The break was right at where it was tie-wrapped to the frame. It was probably just twenty years of vibration and heat.

And nothing "caused" this to happen ?

Thanks for asking, gstallons, and the reply, CagivaRider.  :thumbsup:

I learned the hard way that wiring should be zip-tied loosely to anchor points lest this very thing occur. A tightly tied wiring point becomes a heat sink and the metals work-harden from the focus of vibration. 

A point that should be added the Tank Off Maintenance Checklist . . . :nerd::luigi:

[edit: There, done. Thanks for pointing this out, @CagivaRider!]

">Be certain the wiring lead from the Phase sensor is not "Zip-tied" tightly to the frame leading to a wiring break and sensor failure. Repeat the process of locating and releasing any and all wiring that is anchored tightly to hard points. Re-tie loosely to avoid wiring failures."

  • docc changed the title to Winkie time: failed phase sensor
  • 4 weeks later...

The Go Winkie light is connected to the supply to the ECU

Obviously if you dont have 12 Volts to the ECU it won't spark or power up the injectors

It was Doc that gave it the name, blame him.
