How To Install J&s Safeguard

the unit must be installed in the passenger side of the car.



Connect the red wire (+) to a switched 12V source. check the pics!





Connect the black wire (-) to a ground .




Locate the factory knock sensor wire pin 57 of the ECU and connect the clear wire from the J&S harness.



Locate the two coil signal at pin 26 and 52 on the ECU , using the vampire taps, splice the J&S out wire #1 to terminal 26, and the J&S wire #2 to terminal 52





Connect the unit to a source of manifold vacuum pressure, tap in to the boost gauge.







you are set! just test the unit and enjoy!

just to add a couple things

it doesnt have to be installed in the passanger SIDE of the car. it has to be installed in the passanger compartment... it means where people set and not in the engine bay.

you can also wire it into the coil pack so you dont have to mess with getting to the ecu.

nice write up. we really needed one.

Damn you beat me....I got lazy and was going to do my write up this weekend. I just installed mine last weekend with pete

Are you sure that 12v source is on while the car is turning over(Starting)? I used the 12v source from the ECU which is on while the car is starting.

Just making sure, I didn't know if you have the key in the on position or if you were actually in the start position as several electronics are turned of while starting, but then turned back on while running.
