Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

John, this is the only extended idle posting I found. Is there a way to get this information for a '96 and older-mine being a '94 XJ? I would like to make this modification if possible. I would also need schematics and the such. Thanks

Jeff

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

94's are also covered. PCM12 is the connection point.

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

For 1993-1995 I6 XJs:
PCM Pin # 10, Purple, [60-pin connector] (Switch On: 1V, Off:12V)

For 1996 I6 XJs:
PCM Pin # 12, dark blue/orange, [Black "A" 32-pin connector] (Switch On: 1V, Off:12V)

For 1997-2000 I6 XJs:
PCM Pin # 12, gray, [Black "A" 32-pin connector] (Switch On: 1V, Off:12V)

It has the Black 32 pin connector, not a 60 pin connector though, so I would assume it follows the later year models....

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

Then John do I just need the switch from a '96 or older unit? Thanks for the update

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

John, then by your schematics, is the switch taking 12V away from the PCM or adding it to it to get the higher idle, and how does it get tied into the wiring since my '94 doesn't have it?? I kinda understand your directions, is it just a two or three wire switch?? Thanks

Jeff

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

When Extended Idle is on it grounds pin #10. Not sure about what you mean about a three wire switch, if the switch has a indicator light is has three wires but one is just the light.

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

How would I wire up a standard lighted switch (3 inputs) for this?

These switches have a ground, input +12, and output +12.

To get it to light when the switch is activated, how would I wire it? If I switched around the +12 and ground I don't think that would work.

When the extended idle is not activated, what voltage is it reading? If it was +12 then it would be fine to reverse +12 and ground.....if not, it wouldn't be ok.

Any ideas and do you know what I am asking? Thanks!

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

It seems like there's always a new reason to dig this thread up again...

Spent a good part of the afternoon cleaning up some ratty wiring I'd introduced by installing various things. Something I'm curious about:



If you look at the spliced wire on the PCM, you'll notice that in 2000XJSport's installation he left the other end of the wire dangling from where it originally exited the harness; I've got the same thing. Does anyone know where this wire terminates? I'd like to eliminate the stray ghetto wire I've got running to the PCM now and use the factory one if at all possible.

Yeah, I know that six months ago would've been the appropriate time to consider this, but I was just so giddy with enthusiasm at the idea of being able to raise the idle with the flick of a switch that the idea never really occurred to me

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

My 95 doesn't even have this wire in the plug. Any idea how to add it so I could run it to a switch?

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

I know, using the chart with Pin # for OBD I (for my 95) and corresponding wire color, I know my computer plug doesn't have that. I'd like to add it.....any ideas on how to add it to the plug if it doesn't already have it?
