Extended Idle 97-01 Install

Hello,
With the help of JEEPZZ and many others. I have completed the install for the extended idle. It works great and it was not hard to install. As asked by JEEPZZ to reply on the activation light. I too could not get it to light up. I connected the ground, fused panel lamps dimmer switch signal, and the idle actuator, but did not connect fused ignition switch run. When I did connect the fused ignition switch run wire up to the correct color and number off the A/C plug. The switch did not work at all and the lights all dimmed in the car. So I cut it loose and left it unhooked. Also I did bypass C100 and C107 when running the wire from the switch to PCM C1 #12. If anyone knows how to get the light to work. I would really appreciate it.
Alex

Thanks, Just wish i could of got that light working, but atleast it works. I had one question. Does your switch work when the headlight are on? Mine does not when I have the head lights on.

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

Its not a activation light, it only lights when your instrument lights are on and it should work with headlights on.
One other thing, you see wire called "Other" C107?
If you connect that wire to what ever you want like a "light bar" your high idle will come on by it's self

So that little orange light does not light up when the switch is pressed? The backlight does come on when the headlights are on. I do not know why it does not work with head lights on.

Sorry I was thinking only about the back light, you could have 3and 4 reversed the indicator should work.

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

I have all the wires in the right spots just as it shows in the OEM wiring diagram. I dont have the fused ignition switch output (RUN) #3 wire hooked up because when I did the switch did not work at all and when pushed it made the lights in the car dim. It says that wire is an external splice, but i do not know what that means. Does anyone know the difference between a internal and external splice as stated in the OEM repair manual.

Thats where I'm confused, with Fused ign (run) disconnected high idle should not work.
Were are you getting the 12v to feed the switch?
It looks like you have two white wires with your bypass, could you have them switched?

For running lots of lighting and even a winch when setting still.

To keep your battery charging when parked and all your lights on.

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

I would be carfull with that switch if you have small kids or something.
If your stopped at a light and someone flips that switch your going to rear end someone.

Re: Extended Idle 97-01 Install

huh? what switch?

those images are qouted from another thread/another poster.

but from what it looks like, pcm 12 on the 1996 xj is the same as 97-01 save for the color of the wire.

i still can't figure out this damned code 23 with the CEL. I even cleared the engines computer of the code and it keeps coming back. im getting really frustrated now with just trying to get the code to go away.... for now im gonna save doing the switch untill I can get the CEL to go off. It seems to have a higher idle now... starts and goes to 1400ish and slowly backs down to 900 rpm.
